To be honest, you shouldnt have opened your xbox 360 in the first place because now you voided your warranty. Also, i dont think it means anything.

I've tryed putting xbox360 games in a xbox360 but it sais open tray

The XBox 360 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser (and/or other components in the drive) will eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the games will stop reading altogether and you will get an "OPEN TRAY" message when you put a disc in and close the tray. What this means is that the XBox 360 thinks that there is no disc in the system.

You can find more information about this issue, find parts to repair it, or send your system to repair all at the following website:

I have a xbox360S im getting a open traY everytime i want to play a disc can u help?

You can open it and try to fix it if you don't have warranty. But if you do then take it to Microsoft so you can get a brand new 360 and a Jasper Motherboard which is good. But if you don't have warranty, then try to clean your Lens from your CD -ROM there could be dust on them.
Thanks for using Fixya.

I have xbox360 elite modd.mfd it shows e73.

it was a bad idea modding your xbox because in order to do so they have to remove a special chip or rewire so the chip is skipped.this chip stopped your h77 turner lap from over heating which is what has happened causing it to need a new UNMODDED xbox oh and whatch that liquid it,s highly acidic

Xbox360 wont read any disc

No. You can attempt to clean the laser, but this error is generally cause by a weak laser or one just wearing out. Most likely you will need to replace the drive or the laser.

Got the 2 red lights on the left...flashing...opened and cleand out the machine...applied new compound after cleaning the chips shine...setup back and connect still getting 2 red lights flashing...when...

this is an other heating error. usually caused by one of the RAM chips.
you will need to reflow the ram chip to fix this error.
This guy here has a 6part video guide on reflowing the xbox360, during reflowing the complete motherboard he covers the ram chips:

Xbox 360 overheating?
Overheating is unfortunately an extremely common problem. The console's fans whurr so loudly that you'd think it would be fine, but whilst drowning out a lot of the sound from your games you need to ensure that it is in a well ventilated area. Try to make sure that there is nothing surrounding it and that it is not too close to a heat source.

The problem is with a heat sink on the video processor, the heat sink (the cooling unit) that sits above it is too small. This means this chip gets very hot. Heat is not being pulled off the processor by the fans in the back and by the heat sink extension. Even the accessory fans that clip on the back are not enough. A solution if you don’t mind the Xbox all opened up is to open the Xbox to access the DVD ROM (do this only on systems that no longer carry a warranty). The DVD Rom is covering the heat sink. Remove the DVD ROM from its normal location and set aside still connected. Either using CP cooling fans or even a small electric fan point it at the heat sink. The system will no longer freeze.

There are many cause's & solutions to this very problem. if your problem persists please don't hesitate to ask for help again

The reason I suggest this is it is the most common problem for the Xbox360 freezing.

If this fails as well I suggest one last thing.
If you can surf threw your xbox360 console I would suggest going threw the memory of the xbox to see if anything has corrupted, there will be a caution/warning sign letting to know if said/file is corrupted.

Clearing the xbox360 cache afterwards can also help

Hi, my boyfriends XBox360 is acting up. It's

Your about to have the RROD which is (ring of death) cause by over heating. This is mostly caused from ms not bolting in the heatsink to the motherboard's chips right. Your only option is to send it into ms. If you cant then you have to open the case and install a kit called xclamp, its not that expensive at all, it does require opening the 360. There are thousands of tutorials on youtube how to install it.

I've seen this problem too many times. There isn't anything you can do that doesn't require you to open up the 360.

If this 360 is out of warranty, You can either purchase an extended warranty from a place like

Or search online for the Xbox360 Reflow Solution.

This means, you will have to reflow the VGA chip, which is causing your XBOX360 to act this way.
