XBOX 360 WILL NOT READ DISC SAYS OPEN TRAY


eject the game from the cd console if in the drive make sure your xbox is on warm it up take the disc if it is dirty run under warm water all over the silver side of the disc till dirt and debris gets completely removed after still holding the disc turn off the water and use scott SCOTT brand toilet paper the straight kind and use about four sheets to dry the disc or use a blow dryer, not preffered prefreably scot toilet paper after the disc is dry and warm very dry take your clean index finger and remove the rest of the debris off the disc and when the xbox says open tray let it say close tray close it see if it says read the disc if it says read the disc then it is not your laser or the laser needs to be blowed off with an air gun or compressed air. Get it to say close tray and itll close it self, wait ten seconds turn off the xbox turn it back on and go to my xbox mash play wait for it to read the disc. THE DISC WILL NOT WORK IF IT IS DIRTY I reccomend running it under warm water (let dry on both sides while still holding it properly) use a non scratch cloth to clean the disc preferablly scott toilet paper the smooth kind, after it is dry put the disc in the console if youve tried the disc try a brand new disc it might definately work after it says read if it says play the game then its the disc. If nothing happens like it dont say reading disc then your laser is cracked corrupted, or it has debris on it or is wett. Dont let your laser head get wet because i told you to run it under water make sure the disc is dry and completly free of scratches and smudges. WASH THE DISC WITHOUT SCRATCHING IT. Dont put a wet disc in your x box. Mash the hard drive button down and release mash reset to recycle the xbox green lights. Remove all the cords fromt the xbox wait two weeks or shorter, I waited a month or more before i played my game and it worked after I cleaned it twice one time and a month later i cleaned it without soap and used luke warm water.Remember Open tray, press buttom close tray closing automatically should say read reading reading disc then play if does not read the disc then its your laser. If its your laser and you are sure its your laser do not remove the hardrive or any screws they can tell youve botherd it because that will void your warranty. go to www.xbox.com/support its a pdf file print shipping label follow the steps to repair.

I have OverG Fighters (XBox 360)... even though I successfully complete mission 1 in Area 1 (ie US) and save it... the game won't move on to the second mission, it just keeps repeating mission 1...


Most likely it is one of two things-

1) Your disc has dirt or scratches on its surface causing the next mission to be unaccessible. Try to remove your disc and clean it off with a wet cloth. If there is no noticeable damage the proceed try again.

2) It could also be a reading error with the Xbox laser. Shut down the system and try to blow some dust out of the Xbox using compressed air if you have it, otherwise just blow through your mouth.

Judging by your description im guessing its a disc error, clean it the best you can, if it still doesn't work take the game to a game store to have it cleaned professionally.

Lastly, before taking it to a store try and delete your saved data and start a new game, it is possible your data is corrupted, this may fix it as well.

I hope this helps a bit!

360 wont read discs "open tray"


Sounds like a dirty lens. Have had this same problem many times.

2 easy ways to clean it are:
1. Buy a cheap lens cleaner, it looks like a cd with brushes on it.
2. Open up the tray and pull the power when it is halfway open. Take a can of compressed air with an extension and blow all dust off the lens.

Open tray


Hi, this is caused because your laser is either dirty or starting to fail. Take your 360 and turn it on, then open the tray. As soon as the tray is open, unplug your 360. Now with the tray open use a can of compressed air or an air compressor and blow out the DVD drive .And see if it is because your laser is dirty. Take your 360 and plug it back in and try putting a disc in it. If it still gives you the "open tray" error, then your laser is not reading the disc and needs to be replaced.
