Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
It sounds like your DVD drive's laser is malfunctioning. Either that or the tray is not closing all the way. You'll have to open up your console and see if the tray is stuck. If it's not stuck, it's the DVD drive's laser.
You have a few options:
1) Decrease the resistance on the laser to increase power, and it may be able to read the discs again. A guide for that can be found here.
2) If that doesn't work, or you do not wish to do that, you can replace the laser head all together. Replacements can be found on eBay. You can follow this guide to replace the laser head.
3) You can replace the DVD drive completely, but it will require taking the original drive's firmware and putting it on the replacement one. The guide for that can be found here.
