If you have to bang on your console sounds like you need to get it serviced.

Xbox 360 wont read games


Hello Shawn Francis,

This problem happens to a very high percentage of consumers of the Microsoft Xbox 360 Console, so there is no need to fret. The "Open Tray" problem is a common problem, thus' there is a way you can fix it. Most solutions require you to open the console, unless the solution is banging on the top of the console, which I don't recommend.

- Reader -- When your Xbox 360 console is opened, open the disk tray and inspect the reader. This may be dirty. Try to clean it off with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. There is NO need to assemble the xbox back together when doing each step. Plug in all needed cables into the Xbox 360 and try BEFORE you re-assemble it.

- Magnet -- Inspect the top cover of the disk tray and you will see a black circle, and on the other side, (underneath the sticker,) a silver circle. That silver circle is the magnet that keeps a game disc in place as it spins. It may be out of place, and causing the game disc to move everywhere, not letting the reader read it. There are several methods to take the magnet and the black holder off of the disc tray top cover, just try a YouTube search. Once that is off, you can place the magnet and the black cover onto the Xbox 360 disc spinner, and the disc tray problem will most likely be solved.

If you have any other problems, or concerns, feel free to contact me at any time.

Insert game and it just says open tray


either the disc is ultimately scratched or your drive is malfunctioning.
To fix mine i just bang the xbox on the top and turn it off and back on.

My xbox 360 will not read any disks


Hi,

It is prob your laser needs replaced, you can try a cd lens cleaner (this gave me another month or so out of my last lazer) The clicking noise is the drive trying to read the disc, are you trying to load backups or original discs?

Xbox 360 issues


Crowsinner,

You should probably stop banging it, I think you're doing it more harm than good! You can buy replacement DVD drives, it should either be a Samsung or Hitatchi, eBay is a good place to start.

Opening your console is easy enough. xbox-scene.com have tutorials on this.

I hope this helps, please rate if at all helpful, thanks!
