I havn't had the chance to work on a Slim yet, but from my experience with Phat 360s, you should clean out the connectors for the Ring of Light board with alcohol before reattaching it to the motherboard.
First of all I highly recommend not opening your Xbox 360 unit unless you are certain you know what you are doing. It's very easy for someone to make a problem worse instead of better.
Have you checked the light on your power brick? It should be yellow when the console is off. When you hit the power button does it turn green, stay yellow, or turn red? If it turns red, you have a serious problem and need a qualified technician to look at your machine immediately.
you need to take your Xbox apart and get to the DVD driver and open it make sure that the tray is open. the eye is on a gear rod, all you need to do is turn that rod a few times so that the eye moves forward. put it all back together and try it. i am 99.99% sure it will work, hope this helps u
I just found a post on this and it worked for me. My warranty is past. So I took matters in my own hands. I took it apart which was fairly simple cleaned the lens and surrounding areas but it didn't work. But this is what I found out its not reading the disk because the disk isn't spinning. With the box apart and drive open I put it back in the system and turned on the power I noticed the drive would spin slowly I then while the disk was trying to load I spun the disk by hand to help it along and wala it started spinning I powered down put it back together and as of 10:45 2night my gaming nightmare is over. I hope this was helpful. Good luck all!!
if you can't send the xbox back to Microsoft this worked for me.
The 360 would spin the game up and say reading but than stop and do nothing.
I took the case apart, took out the cd drive, took that apart so i could get to the laser.
put a little big of very clean water on a q-tip, wipe the laser lens down and use the dry side to dry it off. put it somewhat back together and test, this worked fine for me, it read a disk no problem.
it could be your laser needs cleaning, strip the machine down and take apart your dvd drive casing. get a cotton earbud and spit on it a little, in a very careful clockwise motions (dont put too much pressure on) clean the laser eye with the cotton earbud (with the spit on it). you can also use alcohol but i dont like this as it can sometimes leave a little film over the laser.
put everything back together then try again if its ok you have fixed it, if its still the same let me know and ill find a guide on how to adjust your laser unit and put the power up slightly.
i order to fix the 3 red lights on your 360 u must take it apart all of it and then clean it from top to bottem and then put back together when the light s flash it does not mean your 360 is broken ight it just means you need to clean it
The disk tray button on the unit is probably being pushed in from the outer cover. When you took it apart and put it together you may have pinched the button in. Very carefully inspect the disk tray button area. The button needs its full range of motion. The faceplate is pushing the button in and that is why it works without it. Or the face plate is making the top cover to press in on the button. Go over the area and watch what the pieces are doing when you assemble the front in regards to the tray button. I had the same problem. Remember these pieces are plastic and after being run (heat) the plastic may want to warp a little since new.
First of all clean the disc, use warm water and a soft rag. after cleaning the disk, very carefully take apart your XBOX and use the rag to wipe off the eye touch nothing else. Place the XBOX together the same way that you took it apart. Hope this helps!
