Mine does it too, keep opening and closing tray until it loads, if it says "Reading" its operational, just a little buggy

When you put a disc in it reads open tray.


Hello ckpynn,
I have had this problem myself with my own Xbox 360. From my experience, I have noticed that the issue is usually caused due to the Xbox not being able to read the disc. This could be due to the laser inside the Xbox is dirty or damaged - or it could be the disc itself. I never attempted to repair this because I found that after about 5 or more tries, my Xbox was able to read the disc.
When you open the tray to put the disc in or to try and get the Xbox to read it, try rotating the disc a little bit and insert again.
If this doesn't work, you may need to contact Microsoft technical support for further assistance.

Unreadable Disc says reading and then open tray


The easiest and most permanent fix would be to install a new drive. The process is simple and does not require alot of technical skill. Get your unit back up and running good for like fifty dollars or so.

Disc Read Error


the laser might just need re-aligning or the power adjusting so that it will read the discs again. cleaning the laser with a cotton bud and spit is as good as anything but only wet the tip a little bit enough to wipe the laser. The you would be better to adjust the 'pots' on the 360 laser because after a lot of use the laser unit loses power and starts to get disk read errors. we can fix this type of error and we will knock £5 off the price for all fixya users. www.fixmyconsole.co.uk
