Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Xbox360 my xbox360 has broken down it wont read anything i put in it, also it makes any disc i put in spin round on the tray which damages the disc and the disc tray keeps opening by itself to. There are no flashing lights that come up on the front either, so its not the normal problem with the 360.

    I have pretty much the same exact problem. We were trying to change games when we started to hear strange noises- almost as if the disk was spinning on the tray. It would try to read for about 5 seconds, then the game would play as normal or we would get the message "unreadable disk." Now the tray won't stay closed at all. We close it, then it reopens again. I'm tempted to get a new dvd drive. Any solutions?

Our xbox360 wont read ANY disc. the laser flashes and the disc spins around once. but still wont read. kinda makes a short grunting noise twice. whats the issue?


Is it with everygame? I had the same problem with my xbox. If I tapped on the xbox after I closed the tray you could hear it read the disc. After awhile I was annoyed and afraid I could ruin a disc so I went to gamestop and had them fix it.

Xbox360 wont read any disc


No. You can attempt to clean the laser, but this error is generally cause by a weak laser or one just wearing out. Most likely you will need to replace the drive or the laser.

Wont read games. Console says insert game into xbox 360 or open tray.


you might need to clean your laser, if they get dirty from playing games they won't read anything. When you put a game in the laser flashes once to read what type of disc is in, if its dirty it wont read anything and thinks there is no disc in it. If cleaning it dosen't help then you might just have to replace the laser. They aren't overly expensive and they are pretty easy to install as well.

Old xbox360 disc tray wont close at all


open it up ( very carefully) and check to see if the disk tray end is still attached or alligned to the plastic gears that eject the tray. if so check the rubber band to make sure it has not broke or streched.

Xbox 360 open tray error.


This actually concerns the entire loading dock assembly and optical lens. this is an all in one piece. you can separately, replace the optical lens but, if the tray is not operating smoothly,i recommend replacing the entire DVD drive. You can order a new DVD drive at this link below. http://www.videogameall.com/repair-part-xbox360-samsung-toshiba-dvd-drive.html

i need to find another piece to make it spin

Xbox360 wont read disk


what does it say when you put the disc in and trys to read? If it says unreadable disc then take a postcard or a little index card and put it in the tray while its closed with a disc inside and start from the left and swipe slowly to the right and it should start working

Disc Tray Problem


That is how the X-Box works. It doesn't stay open, because if it stood open and it accidently dropped or anything, the drawer would break, and that would cause alot of problems with Microsoft. Thanks for using Fixya!
