This is actually caused by the scaler chip that deals with the display overheating, you can fix it if you use a good guide or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

Hi,


"E74"error code is caused by a memory storage device attached to the Xbox 360 encountering a hardware error. You can try to remove the HDD and restart the console without it, if the E74 code won't appear it means that you need a HDD replacement. But if it still does appear, there is a general hardware failure in the system and it might require servicing. You can contact Microsoft Xbox Support for it to be fixed, out of warranty console will be charged $99 dollars by the way. The warranty period is three years.
Thank you !!

My xbox360 won't read disc's it just says open tray


I learned this from a Youtube video and this did the trick for me. Hopefully, it will solve it for your X-Box 360 too! 1. Put disc into X-Box 360. 2. Turn X-Box 360 off. 3. Open tray. 4. Take disc out. 5. Slam Tray 6. Turn off X-Box 360 (Immediately after slamming the tray shut) 7. Turn on X-Box 360 _______________________________________________________ Your dvd drive probably has a bad motor. There are three motors inthere. One moves the tray. One moves the laser and another spins theDVD. If the tray ejects than that motor is fine. If you hear the discspinning then that motor is fine. Take the top off the dvd drive andsee it the laser moves when you close the tray it should move slightlythe laser should bob up and down and light up if none of that happensyou have a bad laser drive motor or bad laser. The solution is to buy agood DVD drive the same as your make and change the pcb boards (thecircuit board in the DVD drive) make sure yor pcb stays with yourconsole as the motherboard and pcb are keyed together.

Wont play games only says open tray


(DEPENDING ON IF IT PLAYS OTHER DISCS) Either a dirty laser or a bad laser! If its out of warranty you can open it up and clean the laser all you will need is T10 bit and a phillips screw driver! Insturctions can be found online if that doesnt fix it a new laser can be purchased for about $35 dollars. NOTE: DO NOT BUY A NEW DISC DRIVE!!! If your discs still spin all you need is the laser and using your original disc drive circuit board2_bing.gif is easier and cheaper.

Xbox 360...i think it is the disc driver..i think i have a BENQ.....was working fine then at 1am the other morning i switch out the games and just says "reading" / "open tray"....can any body please help!...


I have kindof bad news for you ( the laser is dead) Ok Go to Rich's PSX on line and
buy a laser for your Ben-Q drive , they cost 20.00

Now goto a tutorial on how to take apart your
console , and drive and install your new laser .
It's quite EASY and shouldn't take more than
an 45min remember to remove the Anti static solder
blob from the new laser to activate it.

If you need more info feel free to ask before you
post feed back.

Xbox 360 open tray


You can try a new laser but usually if the laser is bad it will not spin the disk. It sounds to me that the DVD mech board is bad and since it is married to the motherboard you can't buy a new one without out getting the pair together.

Ps2 probs


  • If you are using copy / pirate disks, the Ps2 Will not pick this up unless it is "chipped," which is very risky both in a way to harm the console and in a way to get you arrested as it is illegal.
  • If you've had the console a long time and not a problem like this before - The laser has probably burned out. No point in buying a new laser because you would be cheaper buying a new Ps2 Console

Playstation


it sounds like the disk isnt locating when it slides onto the laser tray if you are ok taking it apart check nothing is blocking the laser tray if their is nothing blocking it check that the laser has retuned back to the middle of the tray if it hasnt then gently push it back and then put it back together. if this dont work you might need to buy new laser witch you can get off ebay they are easy to fit the wires only go into a snap conector try this this should solve your problem

Dvd Drive will not eject properly


HI YOUR 360 AS A COMMON PROBLEM A COMMON TRAY PROBLEM I BET YOUR TRAY AS GOT 2 BIG FINGER HOLES THIS IS A TOSHIBA SAMSUNG DVD DRIVE THESE ARE TERRIBLE FOR TRAY PROBLEMS EVEN THE NORMAL XBOX SUFFERS FROM THIS PROBLEM IN THE XBOX CONSOLE YOU COULD CURE THIS BY OPENING THE LASER AND TAKING THE RUBBER BAND OFF THE COGGS UNTWISTING IT AND PUTTING IT BACK ON STRAIGHT.... IVE CURED A LOT OF THESE 360 TRAY PROBLEMS BYE OPENING THE DVD DRIVE AND CLEANING THE TRAY AND ALL THE INSIDES OF THE DVD DRIVE WITH A MACK UP BRUSH GETTING RID OF ALL THE DUST AND MUCK THIS IS 78 % OF LASER PROBLEMS IN ALL GAME CONSOLES ..................................... HOPEFULLY THIS WORKS FOR YOU IF NOT BY A REPLACEMANT DRIVE FOR YOUR XBOX360 IF YOU BUY THE SAME TYPE DRIVE YOU MUST TAKE THE BOARD OUT OF OLD DRIVE CONTAINING YOUR OLD FIRMWARE AND PUT IN YOUR NEW DRIVE SAVES HAVING TO FLASH YOUR NEW DRIVE IF YOU BUY A DIFFERANT DRIVE SAY A HITACHI YOU NEED TO EXTRACT YOUR FIRMWARE FROM OLD LASER AND IN JECT IN TO NEW LASER
