The faceplate is the plastic piece on the front of your console.
  • Press firmly around the edges of your faceplate to snap it into place (make sure it is flush with the rest of the console). If the faceplate is not on correctly, the disc tray won't close.

XBOX 360 Elite won't play disc; says "reading" then "open tray".


If the console has never been opened to change the dvd drive then eather your laser lens or one of the 2 motors in the drive needs to be changed. 90% of the time its the laser lens. You cant just use any laser for the xbox 360. There are 3 different drives. Toshiba, BenQ, Samsung, so you have to see what drive model you have before you try to order one yourself. I repair these often with 99% success.

Well it won't read any disc and the tray keeps opening and closeing


Does it say it keeps opening and closing or does it literally open and close if so its probably something wrong the motor acting or somthing inside of the disc drive if thats the case then i'm sorry to say but you might have to get a new disc drive. If your 360 is under warranty send it into microsoft if its not under warranty go online and find a disc drive but make sure its the same one you have currently inside of your 360.

Have you ever had to replace that disc drive before or no?
if so then your disc drive is the wrong one for that 360

New XBox 360 putting scratch in games


the problem is the disc drive.
you have to open it up and put some stick foam " like a sticky strip of foam, insulator : on top of the drive .
the problem is that the disc touches the laser assembly while turning cheating a ring on the disc.
i can fix your games as well as the disc drive if you feel like is to complicated.

Xbox 360 console


I had the same problem, thats a faulty drive, I could be that the heatsink under it is so hot that is making the drive faulty, So you'll have to open your xbox a put something between the heatsink and the drive. But if that doesn't work then you'll have to replace it with another drive and transfer the old firmware to the new drive so it can work on your xbox.
