If the unit is no longer under warranty, open it up and clean the lens of the DVD drive. If there is too much dust or dirt on the lens, the system will realize that there is a disc, but won;t be able to read it. Clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol.

    Apparently it is an issue with xbox 360. Check this forum here.
    They say that Microsoft will replace your Xbox if the problem persists.

    In this forum they also say that shortly after giving the error message the XBox will start scratching your disks, if you cannot fix it contact Microsoft in your area as soon as possible to see if you can get a replacement.

My xbox always says open tray and close tray, it wont play my games, no red ring


The disc tray is messing up. The same thing is happening with my 360. Here are two different suggestions:

  • Put the disc in the 360, and then turn the console off. Turn it back on, and it might start playing the game for you. This has worked for me a few times.

  • Call Microsoft's Support line (I think it's 1-800-MY-XBOX in the US), and tell them about it. If your console is within warranty, they should repair it for you, free of charge.

Xbox will will not play any games or DVD's.


try putting the game disc into your game console and close the lid with your hand without pressing the close lid button. hold the disc tray with your hand and turn off the game console. Turn on the game console. If problem still persists try cleaning the xbox with a blower or a vaccum. Pm me if problem still continues. Thank you .

Xbox360/must open & close tray 5 to 10 times before game opens.


This is an indication that your disc tray / the lens on the tray is not working properly.

What i suggest is to call xbox customer support to have your xbox serviced. Good Luck! hope your console still has warranty

Try putting the game in straight. By straight i mean putting the disc in where the xbox 360 logo at the top of the disc goes in the tray towards the xbox360. if that does not work contact microsoft
