Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Posted by Anonymous on
There are a few things you can try. You can open the DVD drive case (remove the 4 screws from the bottom and seperate the two metal pieces exposing the drive) and clean the laser lense (be very careful) use something very gentle (glass cleaner) and a q tip (apply the glass cleaner to the qtip to make sure you do not apply too much) Gently wipe the laser lense clean.
Also look for large amounts of dust/debris caught in the drive.
Look for anything on the drive case that shows wear or is damaged/bent and try to correct it if you can (rebend the case *****warning here**** A DVD drive depends on it's position and balance to read CD's properly. If you are unsure what an undamaged drive looks like refer to pictures online)
If all this fails it could be the laser lense that needs replacing, you can replace just that piece (takes a little skill with a soldering iron) or replace the whole drive (a process that takes some work with a computer since the drive and the motherboard are married, in other words it is not a simple swap out)
Hope that helps and if you need any further steps post a comment asking for them.
