I moved my xbox360 while disk spinning in it,the current game doesn't work so good anymore,and now it makes tick-tick noises sometimes when game disks are playing.It reads all disks,theres no problem...

The users manual for the xbox 360 says to never move the console with a game inside. In doing so, you probably knocked the disc off the spindle causing it to grind against the laser and laser assembly. The ticking noise is probably from the motor that moves the laser back and forth across the disc. A spring may have come loose from the motor causing it to click as the screw occasionally slips from the guides. This should not cause a problem, however the plastic inside the motor may wear out causing the "open tray" error after some time in which case a repair will be necessary.

Why wont my xbox 360 elite read discs? i put disc in and it comes up reading and then open tray

My only questions are does the console say the discs are damaged in any way? and is the console standing up right?
If the discs are scratched in any way then that might cause the 360 to not read the disc and sometimes having a console play the disc upright (example of upright 360) for a long time can cause dis function when trying to play discs, so try playing the discs with the console on its side (side example) These are my solutions to the problem but you can try these: Solution 1 Solution 2

My ps3 is sometimes not reading any discs and when playing some games will just freeze what could be the problem?

This is a problem occurring in all the play station 3 consoles....... this is mainly because of the poor quality of the a result it leads to the damage of ur PS3 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 .........

The disc drive will open when the Xbox is flat but will not when it is vertical. What do you think the problem is?

Flat vs Vertical causing tray to stick is just a mater
of offset loading in the sled and or gravity assist
during the eject sequence.

First I have repaired many 100's of 360's and I have noticed
when they are played vertical the Heat sink compound
will literally seep away from the G.P.U.- and C.P.U. so
I always recommend you play them Horizontal ( flat)

As for the stuck tray this is caused by a weak eject motor
and or grime build up in the gear train causing friction
witch prevent the motor from breaking open the magnetic
seal to the spindle. My simple remedy is to gap the hold
down magnetic in the hub so the motor can break the seal
with less force .

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Reads the games but only says close tray and open tray

It sounds like you will need a drvie replacement or motor. Sometimes the magnetic disc on the motor comes loose and it sticks to the top of the dvd drive cover and causes it to not function. We can fix this for you if your interested email us.

Disc Tray

The rubber band inside your PS2 might be broken, the rubber band supports the disc tray and it ejects and inserts the tray.

Sometimes if play too much long, some of the PS2 parts will be damaged by excessive heat, so my advice is that your minimum gameplay time must be 3-4 hours only.

Please den't even try forcing the tray to open, it will be more damaged.

Try resting your PS2 for about 1-2 days, after that try to open the tray, if the problem still persist bring to a PS2 fixer near you.

Play station 2

If you have your playstation 2 standing upright it may be this tht ios causing the problem as the disc will not be correctly line up with the laser that reads the disc this could also cause scratchs on the discs, its best to have the playstation 2 in the downright postition.
