My xbox 360 1st generation wont play games made sometime in the spring of last year to present . all they do is freeze up ,lose sound and get disk read errors. games have been returned many times thinking...

Buying a new console may never be a good solution. Sending it into Microsoft for repair is the smartest choice, unless you have the skills to open your Xbox 360 console, and repair the reader by yourself. Yes, your game reader sounds like the problem. You may look up videos on youtube on how to disassemble your Xbox 360 console. Don't get mad if you mess up on your first try, it takes some work.

Please contact me if you have any further questions, or problems.

My son has an "Open Tray" error showing on his Xbox 360. He has unplugged everthing and plugged it back in, tried all of his disks...still not there something we can do to reset it or does it...

If you already opened the 360, you can buy a replacement drive of the same kind (i.e. Hitachi, Samsung, Lite-on) and swap the PCB boards from the drives. I did this to fix my Open Tray Error.

But if you have your warranty, just send it in.

Xbox 360 wont read discs

Microsoft Xbox have some common problem like red lights, E74 and Read Disc Error. Microsoft is providing extended warranty for red lights problem, Means you will have to spend some money in order to get this problem repaired from Microsoft also you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get your Xbox back. There are many reasons disc read error can occur in your Xbox like your disc might not be clean, laser might also be dirty and many more common problem. I would suggest you to first clean out the disc, you are using. If that don't solve the problem you can also take the help of DIY guide available at Internet. I think you have got good no. of options to get your Xbox repaired, Choice is yours.
