Hi, is it a slimline one cos sometimes the switch that tells the console that the doors shut breaks. U could try pushing it down gently too see if it activates but i cant be responsible for breakages or possible blindness if you look into the laser. LOL

When I insert a DVD I get a noise when loading then after a while it stops and the DVD get stuck in the drives and won't play. It's as if the drive can't read the disk??


Sounds like there is a problem with the holders on the top of the dvd drive that is supposed to keep the discs in place so it prevents the noises from happening. They wear out after lots of gameplay. Easiest thing to do is to replace the dvd drive because to open it up and replace the holders could cause more damage to the drive.

Dvd not spinning (on any dvd/cd/etc)


You need to replace the laser and carriage drive of your ps3. Checkout ebay for around £50 you can get a new one, although you do have to fit it yourself, but there are help videos on youtube.

Loud grinding, spinning noise with game in console.


Even if it is still playing dvds it might be the dvd-rom drive, usally it spins a game faster than a dvd. Or it could be the harddrive if it was trying to save something. try to download a demo or something to check the hard drive.

Disc Drive will not spin


Dont know if this was just me But this fixxed mine, but I think was my Fault.. I was getting "Open tray Error on all games so Took apart Xbox 360 and DVD drive and Cleaned the LOT, everything, even the Lens with a cotten Bud.. After I put it back together the Disk would Not spin at all.. it did before :( I took thr DVD part again and the centre curcle, where the disks sits to spin. I tried rotate as it would spinning a disk and It was hard, well alittle hard for a finger so impossible for a Drive, after spinning it clockwise afew times it got nice and Loose, was spinning very easy. Put the 360 together again and BAM, Spins perfectly and best of all, NO "open tray error" Yay :) hope this helps

Disk wont spin?


If its still under warranty, and the seal hasn't been cracked, contact Microsoft.

Try what hijackthis1 suggested, if that doesn't fix it, try this.

Since you have the 360 apart, and the top cover off of the dvd drive, here we go...

There's a circular cut-out that's glued to the top cover that you removed from the dvd drive, right below the sticker with all of the drive information. I was able to pop out the cut-out. After that you now have (3) pieces in your hand, the cover, cut-out, and a plastic piece.

Connected the dvd drive back in the 360 with the top cover off.

Put a game or movie in the drive, don't hit the eject botton, just put the disc in the tray.

Now with the disc in the tray, put the plastic piece in the center of the disc. Its magnetic, so it should kind of lock in to place.

Connect the power/av cords in the 360 and turn her on.

You should see the disc try to spin. (It may spin once or a couple times around, but it will stop). When you see the disc start to spin, GENTLE, spin/turn the disc in the direction in wants to go. It should load the game or dvd with no problems.

Reassemble the cover and put back on the dvd drive.

Now use the eject botton, and try games and dvds.

If disc fails to spin, do process over again.

I've done this with one of my 360's with no problems.
The drive I used was an Hitachi 0059DJ.
