Its called an OPEN TRAY ERROR: If your console is out of warranty, Microsoft will charge you $99 to fix it. I started a Facebook page called "Xbox 360 open tray error class action lawsuit". http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=lf#!/pages/XBox-360-Open-Tray-Error-Class-Action-Lawsuit/114541845245219?ref=search&sid=1468606128.265784874..1
Everyone I know who owns a 360 has this error. Please join (like) the page if you use Facebook so we can see how many of us have this problem. The page tells you how to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and Federal Trade Commission. When enough people complain, a lawyer will be more likely to file a class action lawsuit against Microsoft on our behalf. It took a class action lawsuit to get Microsoft to compensate their customers for the red ring of death. They need to (and will) fix this error too.

When i put a game in my xbox 360 it says reading then open tray


I found a solution that works for me after a long period of time with this problem.

Get an air spray canister (just compressed air), open your Xbox's game tray, take the disc out, then spray the air along the tray, moving side to side inside the Xbox. You may want to spray into the vents, too, just to be sure.

This worked for me, and it was the only thing that worked for me. I had already tried hitting the console with the controller (gently), and doing the stuff Microsoft recommends etc.

If that doesn't work, you could try gently knocking the top of the Xbox with your conroller, when you put the disc in, as I've heard that works for some people.

Another thing that works for some people is taking the disc out, closing the tray, then when it goes to Open Tray, open the tray, put the disc back in and then closing the tray again.

My xbox keeps saying open tray I brought it to a guy twice and no fix everytime I put a game or movie in it it reads and says open tray


Reasons

1, the disc may be dirty
2. the mian reason for this your xbox drive cannot read the disc , because the power of the lens is gone(not completely) ,

solution:

1. keep your disc inside the drive and switch off the console, again swith on try this 2 to 3 time
2. keep the console in vertical position or little slanding position(180 dg) make sure it does not fall

3. its better to buy hatddisc and load the game inside it , so that u lens life increased

4. change the entire drive

Disc tray problem!


It needs a new DVD drive I would say. I fix them and it's a really common problem with them.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $30 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.
