Dvd player is going you can try cleaning the lens on the laser
The laser going bad is a pretty common issue with the drives, since it's a Hitachi that spindle motor could be all gunked up with dirt as well and cause that issue also.
if ya have a Hitachi, if it's a Samsung it could just be the laser.

System will not read disk. Keep getting open tray, Have use the dust spray still not working.


An 'Open Tray' error with an XBox 360 is typically a sign that the CD/DVD drive itself is faulty. This will require it to be replaced, which is not as easy as just swapping them out.

The new drive must be of the same make and model of the old drive. If I recall, there are Samsung and Toshiba drives in 360's. Once you have the exact replacement drive, the CD Drive's firmware must be flashed on a PC in order to be compatible and detected by your XBox.

System will not read disk. keep getting open tray


Your system can possibly be dusty inside or the disk may be scratched real bad. Buy a keyboard airbrush can and spray the air inside to see if you can clean it.

Games wont play. Problems with Disk player


it might be the disk drive lens just inst reading. if you still have warrenty with microsoft call and tell them whats wrong. if not then it will be cheaper if you buy a new disk drive for your xbox 360 and have a game repair shop replace it or just take it to the game repair shop and they can tell you whats wrong for sure. but call microsoft first you have 3 year warrenty with microsoft depending around what time you purchesed your system.

Xbox 360 disk tray wont stay shut


My 360 is/was having a similar problem...my 360 would say "reading disc" then "open tray". Well since my system is only about 8 months old...I opted to send it in for repair. Its under warranty. My system is in route to be fixed as we speak. I would advise you to get yours registered too.
