When I put in Call of duty Black ops in my Xbox 360 it keeps telling me to open and close tray reapeatidly


The XBox 360 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser (and/or other components in the drive) will eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the games will stop reading altogether and you will get an "OPEN TRAY" message when you put a disc in and close the tray. What this means is that the XBox 360 thinks that there is no disc in the system.

You can find more information, along with any parts or repair services you need to fix the issue yourself (or have them fix it) at the following page:

After putting the game in, it will constantly say open tray. Whats the cause? I can open and close the tray for a good hour before it will finally load the game.


Hi,
This is more than likely that the laser is failing to recognise that a game has been inserted, it could just need adjusting, or may need a laser replacement, your console will need opening to do either of these, but if you want to have a go at adjusting this yourself, comment, I can help you with this.

Game does not load keeps saying open tray,close try.


This has happened to me multiple times, but sooner or later, it will load, just keep at it. Try taking the disk out and closing the tray, then open and put the disk in and close the tray.

"Disk is unreadable"


Since CDs and CD-R's work fine, its probably that the disc tray of your xbox 360 is not working. you might wanna try contacting xbox customer support to check the warranty status of your console. might as well send it in for repairs
