Make sure you used the old key from the original dvd drive . 1st remove the new dvd drive . 2nd unscrew the 4 screws on the bottom and remove the board . step 3 do the same 2 steps to the original dvd drive and carefully remove the board and detach any ribbon cables . Do NOT forcefuly pull on the ribbon cables . take the original dvd drive board and put it in the new dvd drive . Put new dvd drive back together and install in your 360 turn on and enjoy . If you need pictures to help Google LLMAMA mods it should come up as inside xbox 360 and theres a page to guide you on how to install a new dvd drive a trouble shooting tips .

This is a problem occurring in all the xbox 360 consoles....... this is mainly because of the poor quality of the disc.....as a result it leads to the damage of ur xbox 360 lens..............use good original discs........the heating effect is due to the long usage of pirated discs ...
check your lens if its working good then better download this Repair Guide for further information .........

On my CDP-CX300 It will not play comes up with "Disc loading error" on the display, turntable and loading mechanism seems labored suspect power problem ? any suggestions ?


1. Chances are real good that the laser lens has gone out or is too weak to read the disk. It's a maticelous procedure to calibrate a laser lens. It may just need to be replaced.
2. The labored mechanism is due to the belt in the disk drive being dirty or stretched out. With this the mechanism can't inject far enough for the laser assembly to come up properly far enough for a good laser alignment therefore giving you the disk read error. You can clean these drive belts with alchohol and put them back in. While it's out check the belt for cracks. If there are any replace it. Or if it seems stretched out, which you can tell when it's around the pulleys, replace it. This belt is located in the front and under side of the disk drive assembly.
I've had the same problem with Xbox360 drives and the above solutions worked out quite well. But I haven't worked on one of these devices yet.
3. As a last thought. There may be a swollen capacitor on one of the circuit boards that may be causing the problem. A cap swells and shorts out. If so it will need to be replaced. I've had single swollen caps keep an entire television from working.

When i put disc in xbox360 it keeps saying clean disc an restart xbox have done this. it saying samething with new game brought today


Your problem on your X-Box may be a faulty disk drive. If there are no other problems while running the system (lost information, red lights) then the most probable cause is a broken Drive.Microsoft can attempt to get the drive fixed/replaced by following the instructions on this page http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-360/troubleshoot/repair/repair-process.aspx if you wish to fix it yourself you can fins many drives on e-bay. Before attempting this however I HIGHLY recommend watching/reading tons of tutorials, you can start here http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=573381

My console keep saying open tray and won't read any disc


this is a very annoying problem when the disk drive is going bad (sometimes you can tap the top of console while its loading and it will read) you will need to send it off to get it fixed which is about the same cost as getting a refurbished console now or you can take console apart and change it yourself. takes about 30 min to do this. There are several different disk drive open them and you will see marking on disk tray Mitsubishi/samsung/benq are the ones I've fixed and repaired so far check out youtube under xbox360 disk drive replacement for visual guide if you don't know how and http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/Xbox_360_DVD_Drive_Comparison.htm to determine which drive you have and shop around for best price. good luck

Not sure is this actual PSP or play station. If it is Play station It is very possible that there is problem with laser that reads disks. Try to by PSP cleaner and run it and this might fix the issue.

My xbox360 wont play any disk


I had a problem like this a few days ago, my 360 had problems reading my disks. I ended up opening it up and cleaning the laser in the dvd drive. After that it played fine, if that doesn't work you might need a new dvd drive.

If you can find the same model drive for replacement you can just take out the pcb board and put it in the new drive to keep the firmware the same and get the use of the new spindle without having to flash the drive.
