Xbox 360 can't find the disk

So basically instead of "Play Halo 3" it says "Open Tray" and it only works after i open and close the tray around 20 times.

This happened to me a few times. if you bump onto the xbox with a game in it, it might make a circle scratch on it. Check for that, and if it isn't there, then mabe try cleaning the disk. I pour some water on the disk and then gently wipe it in a circle with a tissue.

My xbox 360 dosent read my halo 3 disk my game dosent work when i put it in the 360 and now my game does not work


So at first Halo3 stopped working then other games stopped working?

Sounds like your lens is dirty. You can buy a cheap lens cleaner (looks like a cd with brushes on it). What I do is open the tray and pull the power when it is halfway open. From there I take a compressed air can and use an extension to blow any dust off the lens.

You can also copy your games directly to your hard drive if you have ample space. This helps with scratched disks and such. When you do this, you will still need the game disk in the tray to play.

Wont read disc,instead says open tray


Try turning the xbox on and off. Try removing the power from the xbox and plugging it back in. Try other discs and see if it works. Try doing updates on your xbox360 and see if that fixes the problem. That fixed mine with Halo.

1 i think the xbox cleans its own lens but check the manual if not get a good lens cleaner.

2 clean the disc always clean your discs after and before you use them.

3 take off your hard drive and any memory cards and reset xbox to factory settings

I turn on my xbox 360 and it says open tray and wont read disc


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.

Xbox 360 thinks game is dvd


your laser is going out or something, or its dirty. mine was doing this to me. eventually it would not see the disc at all and kept saying open tray. i bought a philips laser lens cleaner for around 8 bucks and its helped me out so far. from what i've read though, this is only a temporary solution and will require service eventually.

Xbox 360 Will Not Play Games....


Try opening the disk tray with the 360 off. 05a1ed9.jpg Push a paper clip into 1 of these holes in your 360. It will pop the tray out. Grab the tray pull it out all the way. Put a game in, leave it open! Then turn your 360 on see if it boots the game.
"Your Disk tray might be going bad. It might be fixable but I will have to try it out on a bad drive which iI dont have at this time."
