Call microsoft and have them fix it. It is extremely hard to fix on your own.

When you put a disc in it reads open tray.

Hello ckpynn,
I have had this problem myself with my own Xbox 360. From my experience, I have noticed that the issue is usually caused due to the Xbox not being able to read the disc. This could be due to the laser inside the Xbox is dirty or damaged - or it could be the disc itself. I never attempted to repair this because I found that after about 5 or more tries, my Xbox was able to read the disc.
When you open the tray to put the disc in or to try and get the Xbox to read it, try rotating the disc a little bit and insert again.
If this doesn't work, you may need to contact Microsoft technical support for further assistance.

Will not read disc. just says open tray, reading

Sounds like a problem with the laser or DVD Drive. The XBox 360 thinks there is no disc inside.

If you are looking to repair it yourself and need parts, the following website is a great place to go for information and parts alike. They also do repairs if you don't feel comfortable fixing it yourself:

My 360 is not reading any discs

If your Xbox 360 is not reading discs this is because the sensors on the back of the drive have overheated, to fix it you need to send it in to Microsoft or you can fix it yourself with a good Xbox 360 Repair guide

My x-box stops spinning the discs as soon as i put it inside the system.

If your Xbox is not reading your discs this is because of the sensors on the back of the DVD drive overheating, you will need to get this fixed.

You can do this yourself or you can send it in to have it fixed.

Xbox 360 console can't read disk

If your console has stopped reading discs this can be because the receptors on the back of the drive have overheated and to fix it you will need to send it in or use a good repair guide to do the job.

Can not read anything in disk drive

Usually after having an Xbox 360 for a while, the "eye," or device that reads disks may ware down and break, or may just be dirty. This is the most common reason for the console to be unable to read any disks. I would contact 1-800-4MY-XBOX for support involving repairing the console, or another retailer to find a CD that could possible clean the eye.

Unplayable disc support

Ive Answered A question Exactly Likethis..

So whats causing this problem eh?

Well this problem is down and due to your Xbox360 Because the Pressure magnet inside your Hard drive is Sticking to the game <-- basically the magnet is a holder inside your hard drive a little handy device that makes your game not fall so its Rumaging around in your Hard Drive Loose Thats why when people KNOCK down there Xbox360's when there up and ON with a DISC inside. Thats how they get SCRATCHED.

What tools do i need to fix this problem?? Read below.

You Need EITHER : A Credit Card
A Peice of strong Paper i.e thin card board
A Xboxlive Subscription Card

Either one of those things to do the job.

Step 1. Make sure THERE IS a disc inside your Hard Drive And Keep the DISC TRAY CLOSED.

Step 2. Point the Card Infront of your Disc Tray And Move it to the Left and Put it in the Gap. and Move it to the left and right abit. Basically Wiggle it about inside your Xbox. ** This Does Not Void Warrenty , Cause Disc Failure , Or Scratch Discs. **
Anything that does Break will be your own fault for not following Instructions.

Step 3. Once inside and you've wiggled it about for 2 - 3 minutes... It will Unloose the Magnet Causing your game to come undone and then you " EJECT THE GAME " I repeat " EJECT THE GAME " from the DISC Tray. and Place it back in. and start up the game and then it should get past Loading Screen etc. and Be fixed.

Now I cannot guarentie that this will stay like this for along time. so I suggest you get your Xbox Fixed VIA Warrenty If you still have 1year. if you Foolish People Brought yours off Ebay then I have a solution too.

Pop down to GAME and Sign up for there Unlimited Warrenty xbox360 for £50 - £60 a Month. or Year i carnt remember. It might be a year.
And Theyfix it for you.

And I suggest you ALL DO THE SAME! :)

Thanks For Reading this Solution. I do Very Hope this has helped you people.

Please Rate me Etc. :) Thanks
