If you have voided the warranty, they wont fix it fir any price. I would send it to irepairsquad.com. They do free diagnosis.

It will not read my disk


This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Microsoft and see if the unit is still under warranty.

360 reads game discs but it won't play game and it says play DVD


The problem is that the laser is either dying out, is dirty, or is not getting enough power.

so try to fix it using these steps...

- first open the 360 and pull out the dvd drive and open it up too.

- clean everything out good with compressed air, and q-tips dipped in alcohol.

- now you need to adjust the power going to the laser.Sometimes you may have to try multiple settings before getting it justright. Just keep adjusting the resistance lower and lower until itworks.

- if you tried multiple settings and still get the errors, then either get a replacement drive, or a new laser for it. Click Here for how to properly install the new laser.

- if you get a replacement drive, please not that there is a key in the pcb of the drive that must match the key from the motherboard, so you must either spoof firmware with the key, or swap out the old pcb board and put it in to the new drive.

Dvd rom


Hi,
I,ll assume this regarding the X-Box 360 ?
If you,ve replaced the Drive on a 360.
It will not work, due to the fact that the dvd rom drive, is paired to the motherboard. you can,t simply swap a faulty drive.
When the 360 boots, it,s looking for a Key On the dvd rom, before it will initialise it, and bootup.
I,d suggest looking on the net, regarding XBOX 360 drive flashing. if you still have your original drive, keep it. as your xbox won,t boot without it. you have to backup the drives key ( number ) And have it reflashed onto a replacement drive.
you could try a laser lens cleaner. Or possibly laser unit replacement.
