    "i have not done any damages latley" does not make any sence. And BTW, i use alcohol for ALL electronics cleaning. It evaporates quickley, and does not rust. I am sorry if it sounded like a joke, but i keep a container of 70% Alcohol in my toolbox.

Xbox 360 makes 2 vibrating weird noises then it say open tray and wont read the disk help please


Well it seems your eye in your disc drive is either damaged or need to be cleaned. Two ways can help you just send it in to Microsoft and they will clean it or fix the eye Or if you feel brave enough open it up yourself and manually clean with a cutip gently. You will need a guide it probably be best if you use youtube for guide. I dont recommend you open it though it could be bad if you dont know what your doing so, just send it in.

My xbox wont read my disc. it makes unusual noises when i close the tray. whats wrong?


Hi, the unit needs to have the laser reader lens cleaned but DONT use regular rubbing alcohol.
Get pure stuff....the rubbing type leaves a glare on glass and plastic lenses.
Also ,the chrome rails that the laser moves along need to be cleaned and lubed with liquid silicone.
This method clears read problems most of the time.

Thanks for using fixya.

Disk not reading


Sometimes the heads need to be cleaned and the disk as well! Try using dishwashing soap and warm water on the disk and dry it very well with a cotton cloth or eye class cleaner. Purchase a cleaner from your local electronics store the the XBOX. Hope this helps.

If your xbox is ever not working properly you should contact http://support.xbox.com/ to arrage for them to replace it. But you sound like you opened yours up so that would void the warrenty. In terms of what is wrong there coudl be lots of things that would cause the DVD drive to go back that would also cause a second drive to fail also. I would try and contact microsoft adn hope that they will still replace it.

My lens are not working at all!!!!


sorry to tell you mate but it sounds to me like you have over cleaned your lense every time you use things like towels to clean lenses it puts very fine scratches on the lens. now you may have got away with it for a while but the abrasive fibers on towels eventualy dulls the lense i know cos its happened to me. you may be able to get some joy if you try cleaning the lense with a cotten bud dipped in methelated spirit give the lense a rub ith the bud then clean the lense with a eye glass cloth. i hope it workes for you cos it worked for me.

Ps3 does not read any of my games


see if the player tries to read the disc. Load a disc and listen.
Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.


It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track.see if the player tries to read the disc. Load a disc and listen.

Disk read error.


you can try this sometimes it works .if it does not your laser is no good..if you are confident to pull the top off do this. .now take the cover of the dvd rom(laser ).you will see the laser ...if you can keep outer cover hooked up so you can hit the eject button to open draw..be very careful of the power supply..if you touch anything in there you can get electicuted..now see the laser it may have a plastic cover over it (depends on model)..the little round eye is the lense...get a cotton bud ,wet with your saliva gently lift up the lense (gently ) insert cotton bud under the top eye and clean around it..(gently)..dont force anything..when done reassemble and test .this sometimes works .a lot dont know that there are 2/lasers in these (keep to yourself )
