    I have the same problem although it is intermittent. You never know when a disk will work and when it will not work. I tried setting the console to start on disc instead of dashboard, and I tried repositioning the console to avoid overheating. All that seems to work is to simply turn the console off and on, and if you're lucky, after 4 or 5 tries you get to play your game!

I had the same problem with my 360 a couple weeks ago. My xbox was out of warranty so I opened it up and cleaned the Dvd eye with 90% alcohol. Works great!

What do you do when your xbox won't read disks?


The main problem might be a big problem with the disk tray. There might be an faulty wire that has lost connection and if your disk wont event turn on, there might be a problem with the power supply that supplies the cd tray. If the disk opens and closes but doesnt read and wont say tray is in and keeps saying open tray, there might be a small fracture on some of the wires or there is something wrong with the motherboard of the xbox 360. The best way is to buy the warrenty now and send it to the xbox 360.

Game does not load keeps saying open tray,close try.


This has happened to me multiple times, but sooner or later, it will load, just keep at it. Try taking the disk out and closing the tray, then open and put the disk in and close the tray.

When i put in a brand new game disk,it starts to read,but it but it doesn't read the new disk.it just says"open tray"


put in a game and as soon as it starts to say "reading" give the old box a few taps on top where the dvd drive is at. Keep tapping until it reads your game. May not work the first time so keep trying. This usually happens due to poor or loose laser mounts. If this doesnt work your gonna need to open it up. You can look at You Tube for that. Good Luck.
