Whenever mine wouldn't read disks i'd hit it a few times on the top face (lower left side above dvd drive), then turn it back on to see if it would read it. Sometimes i had to do it 5-10 times... and eventually it worked again for a few months..... (of course, do this at your own risk, but it works for me)

if that doesn't work I'd Call xbox 360 support and see if they will fix it for free (they are fixing the 'flashing red lights" error for free right now... possibly your disc read error). if they refuse to fix it for free and you don't feel like paying...... then you may need to make it have the three red-lights

xbox support may be cover this issue.

XBOX 360 WILL NOT READ DISC SAYS OPEN TRAY


eject the game from the cd console if in the drive make sure your xbox is on warm it up take the disc if it is dirty run under warm water all over the silver side of the disc till dirt and debris gets completely removed after still holding the disc turn off the water and use scott SCOTT brand toilet paper the straight kind and use about four sheets to dry the disc or use a blow dryer, not preffered prefreably scot toilet paper after the disc is dry and warm very dry take your clean index finger and remove the rest of the debris off the disc and when the xbox says open tray let it say close tray close it see if it says read the disc if it says read the disc then it is not your laser or the laser needs to be blowed off with an air gun or compressed air. Get it to say close tray and itll close it self, wait ten seconds turn off the xbox turn it back on and go to my xbox mash play wait for it to read the disc. THE DISC WILL NOT WORK IF IT IS DIRTY I reccomend running it under warm water (let dry on both sides while still holding it properly) use a non scratch cloth to clean the disc preferablly scott toilet paper the smooth kind, after it is dry put the disc in the console if youve tried the disc try a brand new disc it might definately work after it says read if it says play the game then its the disc. If nothing happens like it dont say reading disc then your laser is cracked corrupted, or it has debris on it or is wett. Dont let your laser head get wet because i told you to run it under water make sure the disc is dry and completly free of scratches and smudges. WASH THE DISC WITHOUT SCRATCHING IT. Dont put a wet disc in your x box. Mash the hard drive button down and release mash reset to recycle the xbox green lights. Remove all the cords fromt the xbox wait two weeks or shorter, I waited a month or more before i played my game and it worked after I cleaned it twice one time and a month later i cleaned it without soap and used luke warm water.Remember Open tray, press buttom close tray closing automatically should say read reading reading disc then play if does not read the disc then its your laser. If its your laser and you are sure its your laser do not remove the hardrive or any screws they can tell youve botherd it because that will void your warranty. go to www.xbox.com/support its a pdf file print shipping label follow the steps to repair.

Disk tray is not spinning


The way to fix this is to open the disk tray and blow inside for about thirty seconds getting the dust out of the way of the laser also blow across the disc tray and the surface of the disk. Then keep closing and opening the tray and it will start to read hopefully. if this does not work go out and buy a disc cleaner. it looks like a disc with sponges on it and when you insert it into the console it cleans the inside for you.

Whenever I want to play my Xbox I turn my tv on then my Xbox. Then I put in my disk and I'm still on the dashboard, so I'm on the slide that says "My Xbox". So I put in the disc it said reading then it...


You are probably right. If it says, OPEN TRAY", it means the xbox did not read the disc. You can try using a cd player cleaning disc. If that doesn't work, then the dvd drive will probably need replaced.

My xbox will not even read the disc


The Fifa 09 game must be a x box live game. Not a X Box 360 game.

When a disc is loaded, it reads "no disc".


Okay, so I had this problem a few days ago and started watching movies on my X-box 360. Then my X-Box came up with the same error as my DVD player. After reading countless reviews and e-mailing Samsung, I read somewhere that someone had pummeled their X-Box until it adjusted the laser back.

So, I pummeled my DVD and X-Box into oblivion and oddly enough both of them are working. Don't go crazy smacking it but give it some sturdy hits right above the CD tray as you are putting CD's in and opening the tray. Worked for me and hope it helps...

Xbox does not read discs.


Getting to the dashboard screen is a good thing but still cannot rule out a bad circuit board or power supply. All the symptoms point to a bad DVD drive but the opening/closing by itself do indicate a problem with the microprocessor. Can you turn the power on and off with the small button?? If not, would definitely suspect bad board.
