You will probably need to replace the laser eye in the disc player.

SOURCE: 360 reads game discs but it won't play game and it says play DVD

The problem is that the laser is either dying out, is dirty, or is not getting enough power.

so try to fix it using these steps...

- first open the 360 and pull out the dvd drive and open it up too.

- clean everything out good with compressed air, and q-tips dipped in alcohol.

- now you need to adjust the power going to the laser.Sometimes you may have to try multiple settings before getting it justright. Just keep adjusting the resistance lower and lower until itworks.

- if you tried multiple settings and still get the errors, then either get a replacement drive, or a new laser for it. Click Here for how to properly install the new laser.

- if you get a replacement drive, please not that there is a key in the pcb of the drive that must match the key from the motherboard, so you must either spoof firmware with the key, or swap out the old pcb board and put it in to the new drive.

Microsoft Xbox have some common problem like red lights, E74 and Unreadable disc. Microsoft is providing extended warranty for red lights problem, Means you will have to spend some money in order to get this problem repaired from Microsoft also you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get your Xbox back.

SOURCE: Xbox 360 Console Not Reading Discs

this could mean your laser is on its way out, but it could also mean it needs cleaning. the best way to
clean is to strip the machine down. strip the dvd drive down and get a cotton earbud.
spit on the earbud and very gently wipe the laser eye clockwise but dont press on too hard, very gently.

also get a clean paintbrush and give the drive casings a good clean.

this might help. there is also something else you can try and thats something called asjusting the 'pots',
this is a bit complicated for anyone not used to the process but i do have a guide if you want to have a
go yourself. what this does is adjust the laser power so its a full again just like it was when you first
bought it. (thats the easy explanation).

regards

linda

My disc drive says play dvd at the dashboard when i have a 360 game in it and when i press play it reads, to play disc put it in a xbox 360 console


Hello, Thanks for using FixYa. If you are encountering this problem it means that your xbox360's dvd lens had gone bad. Lenses have life time. Try to get a DVD lens cleaner disk first then use it on your xbox. If this doesn't solve the problem you will then need to have your lens aligned or changed if aligning doesn't fix the issue. I hope this helps. Thanks and good day. - HotRatchet

Make sure discs are not scratched. Try cleaning the discs using rubbing alcohol and a soft cloth.

Put this in an xbox 360 console


Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
