This could be the drive belt slipping, there are plenty of guides on how to clean or change this without voiding your warranty on youtube.
Or this is a drive motor problem its self, when the motor wears it becomes to weak to engage the magnet.
Or this is a magnet issue, the magnet has become detached from the motor so it cant engage, this is sometimes accompanied by a grinding noise. If it is a motor or a magnet problem the console will need opening to access the drive.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

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.

My xbox 360 is acting up, when you put in a disc, the system will say open tray. it sounds like two low woop sounds as it tries to read the disc, but overtime it says open tray... and just yesterday it was...



This is a problem occurring in all the xbox 360 consoles....... this is mainly because of the poor quality of thedisc,.....as a result it leads to the damage of ur xbox lens..............usegood original discs........the heating effect is due to the long usage ofpirated discs ...
check your lens if its working good then betterdownload this Repair Guide for further information .........

all the best........

HAWX open tray


If it says "reading" you just have to wait. H.A.W.X. is a big game.
If it says "open tray" you have to close the tray :)

Unless, Check the CD for scratches and marks, or else try the CD on another Xbox 360 console.

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.
