Hi, the problem could be down to one of a couple of things the first and most commone is a dust build up on the runners inside the tray or the laser lense itself sometimes knocking on top of it would read the games for about 4 days. then knocking will stop working. if you have any warranty left then take it back and get them to fix it or replace it, if you have no warranty left then you could either pay someone to fix it or try fixing it yourself if you do it yourself goolge for xbox 360 repair guid and this will then list loads of sites that show you how to take it apart, doing this will void any warranty and can cause more problems if you get it wrong..
if after getting it cleaned or cleaning it yourself it still dont work then this points to the fact that the dvd drive is no longer working and will need replacing.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Unfortunately this is a common issue with the xbox. If you have tried all the steps that are provided on the xbox support website, it may be time to call xbox support and get your xbox repaired. If it is out of warranty, I'd honestly just get a new one cause the repairs run about $120 out of warranty.

The laser could be dirty, meaning it has a build up of dust, etc on it. Try using a cleaning disc, which is specially designed to clean CD, DvD and other electronics with a laser reading system. You can find these at your local electronics store, Walmart, Target, etc. They are readily available. If that doesn't correct the issue, then you may need to take it in to a specialist.

hey man this is a disc drive problem but its very simple to fix.only thing is you'll need to disassemble your console and take the case off your disc drive. it will void warranty. its very easy to fix, not worth sending back to MS and get charged money. has worked on 3 out of the 3 xboxes ive seen with open tray errors. all had BenQ drive. good luck.">

The cd tray wont open


My unit is doing the exact same thing. I normally give it a smack on the head when it doesnt open, if there is no disc in the tray, otherwise you can replace the drive belts in the dvd rom drive, but the best bet is to replace the dvd drive to ensure you solve any problems that may be present. I hope this helps.

My xbox will not read discs it just says open tray


I found a solution that works for me after a long period of time with this problem.

Get an air spray canister (just compressed air), open your Xbox's game tray, take the disc out, then spray the air along the tray, moving side to side inside the Xbox. You may want to spray into the vents, too, just to be sure.

This worked for me, and it was the only thing that worked for me. I had already tried hitting the console with the controller (gently), and doing the stuff Microsoft recommends etc.

If that doesn't work, you could try gently knocking the top of the Xbox with your conroller, when you put the disc in, as I've heard that works for some people.

Another thing that works for some people is taking the disc out, closing the tray, then when it goes to Open Tray, open the tray, put the disc back in and then closing the tray again.

The optical drive on the xbox wears over time. Call 1-800-4MYXBOX and get a repair scheduled.

Unreadable Disc says reading and then open tray


The easiest and most permanent fix would be to install a new drive. The process is simple and does not require alot of technical skill. Get your unit back up and running good for like fifty dollars or so.
