Either the laser is dirty and will need cleaning, or the laser has gone out. You can clean the laser eye with a q-tip and some alcohol. Lasers can be purchased online or ebay, but you will need to know which drive you have in order to get the correct laser.

Try cleaning the READING HEAD. With discs being laid on the floor, in the couch, in a chair, on top of a entertainment center... these magnetic wonders also attract dust, link, particils like crazy and generally it is a simple fix. Also check that the disks are not scratched... You may need to take them to a Game Exchange Company ( similar to a pawn shop ) and have your discs resurfaced. Generally it only costs about 2-3 dollars a disc, but can save you a ton of head aches.....

This is quite a common error and it happens because the DVD drive and the sensors at the back of the drive are overheating.

To fix it you need to send it in or repair it yourself

Tip

How to resolve Xbox 360 disc read errors. Xbox will not play disc.


Is your xbox360 having trouble reading disc? In this guide I will provide some common solutions to help you fix your disc read issues.

1)Remove any memory devices or usb flash drives.
2)If the disc you are using is excessively scratched, this can cause the xbox to have trouble reading the disc. You can use a damp soft cloth to try and clean the disc. Grab the disc by the edges and using a soft damp cloth lightly wipe the disc from the center going outward.

3)Try removing your Xbox hard drive and then play a disc. Turn off the console. Locate the hard drive on the top of your system(depending on how you have it positioned). Press the release button on the hard drive.

If your system can read disc without the hard drive attached then you may need to replace the drive.

4)Clear the Xbox360 cache. Clearing the cache may remove updates to certain games. Keep this in mind.
Go to System Settings in the My Xbox menu. Select Memory, highlight your storage device and select Clear System Cache. Try and play the disc.

If after the above steps you are still having trouble. You may want to contact Microsoft Xbox live support to have your system serviced. You can find the support information in the link below,
