    This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a cue tip, and see if it works. If the unit is still having trouble you may need to replace the laser. Check with microsoft to see if your unit is still under warranty with this site:http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/xb... If your unit is not under warranty, go to www.wiredextreme.com. We are a console repair company based in Texas, and we can fix your console. We give a free diagnosis of repair(excluding shipping), and will call with an estimate of how much the repair will be before any work is done. All our work comes with a 90 day warranty, and you can extend that warrant up to 4 years.

If you are getting this error then it is because the receptors on the back of the DVD drive have overheated.

To fix it you need to send it in or repair it yourself using a good guide

My xbox 360 wont play cds, dvds, or games when i put a disc in it makes 2 click noises spins then stops and says open tray how do I fix this


Sounds like damaged lazer, see if you can clean it with one of those brush/cleaning discs that are sold at most electronics stores. If not contact Microsoft and see if you are under warranty.

I put a new drive in my xbox 360 and it wont play games


every DVD drive is "married" to the motherboard. They both have a special key that keeps them together. Without that key the motherboard will not accept the DVD drive and it won't be able to play games ever again. You can extract the key from you old DVD drive and "spoof" it to the new one. That's the only way it'll work.

My xbox 360 drive wont read games it will only dvds and cds


Your laser either needs to be cleaned or is going bad. I have seen this many times before. Try taking the drive apart and cleaning the laser aperture with 91% alcohol and a cotton swab (carefully). If that doesn't work then you need to replace the laser (or get a new drive).
