If you are getting this it is because the sensors have burnt out on the back of the DVD drive, you need to stop the heat that is all.

To do this you can use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide or you can send it in.

My xbox 360 keeps telling me to open tray evewrytime it trys to read my game .


The laser is dirty, or just getting weaker. The Open Tray message is a result of it timing out. I would recommend a new drive.

Insert game and it just says open tray


either the disc is ultimately scratched or your drive is malfunctioning.
To fix mine i just bang the xbox on the top and turn it off and back on.

Drive tray keeps opening and does not read disk


Do you mean it will not stay closed?
if that's the case the (closed leaf switch) in the
drive is shorted together . gotta open it up
to fix it . that normally happens when someone
trys to open it up with a thin screwdriver.

If the laser was good (reading games) before the tray problem
its still good.

Dvd rom will not work


The cover is warped. There needs to be just the right tension on the arm that lifts the eye of the drive to read disks properly try pushing down on the cover when you have it apart. So that you bend it alittle.

When i put the game in it says reading then just says open tray and wont read. it used to read after a few try but now it wont work no matter how many trys


Most likely it is your laser lense is dirty. Crack the case get in to the DVD drive open it. While in there give it a general cleaning then clean the laser lense with glass cleaner and a q-tip. Three other things to check. There are three motors in there one slides the tray in and out when you hit the eject button (small hole lower left of metal box under drive) another moves the laser when the tray moves back in you should see the laser move slightly and the lense bob up and down and light up, third is the spinner motor put and disc in the tray and close the tray the disc should spin up if it doesn't then the motor is bad. If all these things have work ok put it back together and test it out.
