What your having is a faulty lens, they cost around $13 on ebay. very simple to install. Make sure its the correct make and model as there is around 10 type of DVD drives.

When i load a disc open tray keeps coming up, it says reading disc for a couple of seconds then says open tray. how can i fix this myself


This problem can not be fixed yourself. The lens has either become scratched or dirty, and can not read discs. Send the console in to Microsoft support and they can fix it under the terms of your warranty.

Every time try toplay xbox 360starts to read game


This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Microsoft and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Xbox 360


if your consoles out of warranty open up the disc drive and on the bottom there is 2 screws that the laser rails rest on. as the console vibrates they can come loose over time so most likely one or both have come slightly loose. give them a quarter turn to tighten them a little then test the drive with a game. keep doing little adjustments till the game reads. this worked for me on all consoles i seen with the open tray msg. give the laser a clean too while its apart. always helps :D

The xbox 360 elites keeps on saying open tray when trying to play


1, the disc may be dirty
2. the mian reason for this your xbox drive cannot read the disc , because the power of the lens is gone(not completely) ,

solution:

1. keep your disc inside the drive and switch off the console, again swith on try this 2 to 3 time
2. keep the console in vertical position or little slanding position(180 dg) make sure it does not fall

3. its better to buy hatddisc and load the game inside it , so that u lens life increased

4. change the entire drive

I put in the game and it just says open tray


you need to unplug ever cable you have and every accessory you have. Unplug adapters memory units hd inter coolers every thing. let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Plug everything back in then press the button to open the tray to turn it on then put in a different game keep it open . Then when the menu comes go into a program so you can't see play game or close tray. Then when you are in the right place close the tray.
