If not the laser lens needs to be cleaned or is going bad.
If cleaning the laser lens does not work you'll need to replace the lens or the drive itself. I usually replace the drive rather then the laser, it's half as much work and the drives are only about $10 more then the lasers. Plus you don't know the condition of the other parts inside the disc drive... why save $10 and waste a ton of time if another part of the drive may go in a few months and you'll have to replace it anyway. Just remember you need to get the drive key from the old drive before replacing it. You can use jungleflasher for this.

The laser has failed. go here to see which drive type you have
www.llamma.com/xbox360/Xbox_360_DVD_Drive_Comparison.htm
then go to ebay and order the correct laser for your drive. once your recieve your laser look on youtube for a good vid on dismantling your xbox 360 and installing the laser, ihave replaced quite a few its not as hard as you may think. of course if its still in warrenty send it back to micro$oft to be fixed. hope you get it sorted!

Error msg: to play this disc put in xbox 360


Hi,

the Laser In The DVD Drives Failed.
Try a CD/DVD to see if it will read A single Layer DVD, Rather than the 360 Dual-Layer Disk.

You might try a laser head cleaning CD Disk.

Or requires drive replaced et,c. ** This is not swappable And should Be caried out by """ An Xbox 360 Drive Replacement Specialist, As the dvd drives logic board is paired to the Motherboard, And therefore have to be re-matched.

Mike @ Compurepair.

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.

My xbox360 wont play any disk


I had a problem like this a few days ago, my 360 had problems reading my disks. I ended up opening it up and cleaning the laser in the dvd drive. After that it played fine, if that doesn't work you might need a new dvd drive.

Problem


Did this system play games at one time? If it isnt the original dvd drive with the original bin it will do this. Otherwise you just need to replace the laser or the dvd drive.

Put this in an xbox 360 console


Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
