This is happening a lot. The dvd drive is wearing out, it has a tough time moving into a position where it can read the disk. You can help it along by dropping your xbox from a small height, maybe 3-4 inches, to shake the dvd drive into place. Make sure there is no disk in when you do it. This may require multiple tries.

When putting disc in on screen says open tray once game is in it doesnt read games or films


It's a dead laser most of the time that cause a empty open tray message . The laser are cheap 20.00-30.00 . I buy mine from
Rich's PSX , there not hard to install if you want to save a little
money/time. Or you can have a shop swap it out for 70.00-80.00
some times less . if you need more info ,ask.

My 360 will not read my disc even tho they are clean


The optical drive on the xbox wears over time. Call 1-800-4MYXBOX and get a repair scheduled.

MY GAMES WONT LOAD


you need to unplug ever cable you have and every accessory you have. Unplug adapters memory units hd inter coolers every thing. let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Plug everything back in then press the button to open the tray to turn it on then put in a different game keep it open . Then when the menu comes go into a program so you can't see play game or close tray. Then when you are in the right place close the tray and it should load. This worked for me 2 times.

When i place a disk in my Xbox 360 console it


I have had this happen about 3 times. The first time was when i figured out how to fix it. The 2nd and 3rd were temporary.(Just needed to be turned off for a moment) You need to shut the console off for atleast 15 minutes 10 at the lowest with everthing unplugged. I mean the hard drive, memory unit, and all cables, and adapters. Then after 10-15 minutes plug everything in and DON'T PRESS the BUTTONS ON THE XBOX OR THE CONTROLLERS. Press the button to open the tray and take out the game or dvd and put in a different one. If this doesn't work do it all over again and then put in a different game or dvd not the previous ones and turn on the console the same but then a soon as you get the disc in and closed in shut it off then open the tray and wait till you are at the main menu go into any program so you can't see it is reading and close the tray. If that doesn't work contact the xbox support line. Really hope this works for you.

When i put in a brand new game disk,it starts to read,but it but it doesn't read the new disk.it just says"open tray"


put in a game and as soon as it starts to say "reading" give the old box a few taps on top where the dvd drive is at. Keep tapping until it reads your game. May not work the first time so keep trying. This usually happens due to poor or loose laser mounts. If this doesnt work your gonna need to open it up. You can look at You Tube for that. Good Luck.

Every time i put the game in the disk tray it says open tray


The game most likely has some physical defects that are making your weak laser work harder. The "open tray" problem is likely to start happening with all games eventually. You need to do one of these things

1. Clean your laser with 91% alcohol and a cotton swab (carefully).

..if that doesn't work...

2. Get a new laser assembly for your drive -or- get a new drive.
