This is a problem occurring in all the xbox 360 consoles....... this is mainly because of the poor quality of the disc.....as a result it leads to the damage of ur xbox 360 lens..............use good original discs........the heating effect is due to the long usage of pirated discs ...
check your lens if its working good then better download this Repair Guide for further information .........

You will need to open 360 to get access to your dvd drive and get some q-tips and alcohol and clean lens if that doesnt work you will need a new lens

Well if you have tools and some time you can
swap out the laser .It's not too hard ,plus you
save 60.00-80.00 . This is GOOD.

laser are available form many sources .Cost around 30.00-40.00

Many video's on how to do the whole laser swap. And
a drive swap if needed but its normaly a weak or dead laser.

If the spindle motor is weak or seized up , than you
will have to buy an identical drive .Then remove the your
old drives P.C board and install it in the new drive.
little harder.


If you take it to a shop expect to pay around 70.00 -100.00
depending on what drive you have .

Sounds like a scanner lens problem. you could fix it your self (cheap) or send it in to 360pros.

Hi my xbox 360 keeps telling me to open tray after a disc is inserted. it says reading then it says open tray.


1: Take a close look at the bottom side of your game, movie, or music disc (the side without a label or image). Are there scratches? Excessive scratches or smudges can prevent your console from reading the disc. Hold the disc by the edges without touching the top or bottom surfaces. Using a soft, clean, slightly damp cloth, lightly wipe from the center of the disc outward. 2: Try other discs to determine whether the problem happens with any disc or only with this particular disc. If multiple game discs, DVDs, or CDs will not play: Make sure the media type and the disc region code are compatible with the console. 3: If your Xbox 360 console can't play multiple game discs, try clearing your system cache. Here's how: On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings. Select Memory. Highlight any storage device, and then press Y on your controller.Select Clear System Cache. If you still can't play a game disc, try the next solution. 4: If the solutions above did not resolve your problem, please send Microsoft your Xbox 360 console for repair..

Dvd tray will not open or play


Hello,

The reason your player keeps reading a disc and do not play is because the the disc tray is not sitting the disc properly on the lens.

The disc tray is faulty, the mechanism that controls the opening and closing of the tray is damaged and needs repair.

To fix this, you have to get the appropriate screwdriver, open the cover of the player.

You will see a mechanism by the opening of the tray that controls the disc tray.

Get a replacement mechanism and change it. Mostly the rubber slacks and does not control the tray properly.

Changing the mechanism will solve the problem.

Take care

My xbox 360 reads my disc then says open tray it want let me play


You have a dirty or faulty laser. You can try a DVD player cleaning kit. If that doesn't work then you need to have the laser replaced. Thanks!

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.
