Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

My disk reader on my xbox 360 will NOT read disks.

Whenever I put a game or DVD in, the screen will say reading for about 3 seconds, then it will say open tray... Shaking it in the past has solved the problem for days at a time but today it doesn't work at all. I was able to play video games just before this happened. Then I turned off my console, and then decided to watch a movie, so I turn the console back on, thatis when it stopped reading disks. I think all the shaking may have knocked something lose in my console because when i tried to put a disk in it woud click two(2)times then say open tray.

Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the OPEN/CLOSE TRAY ERROR

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a GOOD REPAIR GUIDE, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

I used Gamer Fix to get the best guides

The other solution would be to send the console off to its manufacturer, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $150

I am Glad I could help and You can help others by rating this Post or leaving a comment.
Many thanks

Whatto do when your Xbox Has problems with reading disks and you havetried cleaning the disk.

Thisdoes not mean your Disk Drive needs replacing more often than not itjust needs the laser to be readjusted.

Option1

Youcan send this off to Microsoft if your still in warranty because itis included in there free fixes so they will do the collecting foryou, fix it and return the Xbox to you, all for free, but it willtake 4-6 weeks.

Option2

Ifyou are out of warranty its the same process as above but its $130 incost

Option3

nowa new Disk drive would cost around $75 for a compatible one and youmay need some one to fit it at a cost as well.

Option4

WhatI recommend is a XBOXREPAIR GUIDE that will show you the simple steps yourself, youwill be up and running again in less than an hour and the cost is farless than option 2 & 3

GoodLuck

Xbox disc reader does not think a disc is in tray for xbox 360 games


This is a common issue.
1. Make sure your disk is clean. Dirty disk can cause disk reading issues.
2. Clean the drive with a CD/DVD laser cleaner.
3. Replace the laser. You can get a replacement from Ebay for $10-15. Make sure you get the right one for you drive. There are several different models.

Put this in an xbox 360 console


Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
