Your laser may be dirty or the laser may be bad. If you hear the disc spin up and you can also hear the laser moving, then it is definitely the laser. If cleaning the laser lens fails, then you can either replace the laser or the drive. I prefer to change the entire drive. You can find one on EBAY for around $20. You have to get the exact same disc drive that you have in the console originally.The most important thing is the drive key that is located in the original drive. What this key does is store information and firmware. This key replaces the one in the new drive. If it isn't replaced, then your drive will not work.(and be banned) The key installed in the new drive makes the console recognize the new drive as the original. Do this while not connected to LIVE to ensure you have the key installed correctly and your drive is reading properly before you go on LIVE. Once reading discs, and everything checks out OK you can then go on LIVE.(with no worry on getting banned) There are a few tutorials on youtube for this fix. Keep in mind if you have a BENQ drive, replacing the key is a little trickier.(which you can also find on youtube for the BENQ drive) If you want to replace the laser get the one for your drive on EBAY and find the tutorial on EBAY. Either way is a fairly inexpensive fix. I hope this helps you.

What do you do when your xbox won't read disks?


The main problem might be a big problem with the disk tray. There might be an faulty wire that has lost connection and if your disk wont event turn on, there might be a problem with the power supply that supplies the cd tray. If the disk opens and closes but doesnt read and wont say tray is in and keeps saying open tray, there might be a small fracture on some of the wires or there is something wrong with the motherboard of the xbox 360. The best way is to buy the warrenty now and send it to the xbox 360.

Everytime i put in a game in my 360 it says open tray


Make sure the game doesnt have any finger prints on it. If thats not the reason then try a laser lens cleaner you can find them at wal mart if the problem persists you may need to have your laser lens replaced.

360 disk tray


What I did was took apart my Xbox and put the disc tray back on the tracks, carefully lifting it over the circle thing in the middle. When I lay my Box down horizontally, it opens and closes fine.
