You have a few options

1 take it to a local shop ,and have them swap the drive for new
average cost 70.00-90.00 depending on the drive.

2 goto ebay and buy the same make/ model drive
and remove your old drives P.C. board and solder/plug
it in to the new drive , Cost is about 35.00

3 Send it to Microsoft ,cost 100.00 takes about 3 weeks

4 a little riskier is to buy a new laser for 20.00
open your drive and remove the old one and
simply plug in the new one . But that doesn't always
work if the spindle worm gear motor if failing in
which case you'll need to do option 2

If you have any questions feel free to ask

My hk 30 player tray flashes (disc error) with every digital audio disc. help


Often times the tray and pickup lift assembly are related and there is a cam alignment. IF you pulled out with force the tray the alignment may have been upset to where the cam is not completing the lift of the Pickup and if not in the right position the laser will not be able to focus. The correct solution is at a Technicians bench where a new belt could be put in, lubrication that is required and some cleaning will be done.

I have the... the... the... OPEN TRAY ERROR


I get this at times, I find you just have to keep putting discs in untill it reads one, if it dosn't then im afraid you'll need a new one, just check if your under warrenty before buying one, because if you are you can get it fixed (or if it can't be fixed, a replacement) from Microsoft for free.

Xbox360 disc drive


Hi, it sounds like you have the" open tray" error that is very common with the 360s. How you fix this is you take your DVD drive apart and look at the laser assembly, there are 2 screws on the side of it, look at the one on the left. Turn this screw to the left a VERY little bit at a time and keep checking it every time you turn it until it stops the open tray error.

Sanyo DVW 7200 Disc Error


check to see if the disc spins......As in place the disc in the DVD player with the label in a position that is readable to you....Put the disc in close the tray and wait a few seconds. Open the tray and se if the disc actualy has moved. If it hasent then the motor is bad and not worth replacing!

Xbox 360 open tray error


How I worked around the "Open Tray" problem, where the game discs were not being recognized:

1. Open tray
2. Unplug power cable while tray is open
3. Plug in power cable
4. Power on console - tray closes
5. Open tray
6. Insert disc
7. Try your game

Good luck! Source: Someone else mentioned this in a forum somewhere, however I don't recall who it was or which forum. I'm just trying to get the word out so people don't send in their XBOX for repair, or open the case and void the warranty if this workaround resolves the problem.
