Re: wont read cds and tray opens on it own

Bad Cdrom/dvd
The laser going bad is a pretty common issue with the drives, since it's a Hitachi that spindle motor could be all gunked up with dirt as well and cause that issue also.
if ya have a Hitachi, if it's a Samsung it could just be the laser.

My xbox 360 won't read my disc it only gives two options to either on disc tray and close tray, it will say reading for just a second thern says open disc try

Try lying the xbox down flat and load a disc. This solves the issue in most cases.
Also try putting a normal store-bought audio CD (not a CD-R or anything) and see if the same problem happens. In case you haven't done it already, turn it off for at least a minute and back on again. You'd be surprised how often it works!

My Xbox 360 wont read any games, CD's or DVD's

Its the Disk Drive, its not able to read it because something got in there and scratched the reader, or its just old and broke. but a new disk drive will fix the problem.

Its exactly like that.

it just means that the disc has no media that it can read, or that the media is in a folder, or it is a blank disc.

Xbox wont read discs

All CD Players and DVD players work basically the same. way.

When you close the tray a tiny micro-switch makes contact telling the player it is ready to read a disc.

Your switch has either failed or is out of alignment.

The unit has to be taken apart. The switch needs to be adjusted or replaced. The switch is a 69¢ part.

Ps2 wont read any of my disc.....

Try cleaning it out using a CD cleaner or canned air. If that doesn't work, then you might need to purchase a new PS2. The disc drive might have gone out.

Thank you,
