You might want to check for these things and ask other people that use the Xbox as well, in case if they did this.
1. Put any foreign objects (i.e., screwdrivers, pencils, etc.) in the disc holder, and closed it.
2. Put in multiple discs, whether intentionally or accidently.
3. Just messing around with it, e.g. pulling disc holder after pressing the button to close it.
Also, you might want to check if anything is loose, such as the laser that reads the discs.

Hi, the unit needs to have the laser reader lens cleaned but DONT use regular rubbing alcohol.
Get pure stuff....the rubbing type leaves a glare on glass and plastic lenses.
Also ,the chrome rails that the laser moves along need to be cleaned and lubed with liquid silicone.
This method clears read problems most of the time.

Thanks for using fixya.

Our xbox360 wont read ANY disc. the laser flashes and the disc spins around once. but still wont read. kinda makes a short grunting noise twice. whats the issue?


Is it with everygame? I had the same problem with my xbox. If I tapped on the xbox after I closed the tray you could hear it read the disc. After awhile I was annoyed and afraid I could ruin a disc so I went to gamestop and had them fix it.

My console wont read any of my discs


Typically its a problem with the disc tray, a variety of solutions can be gently tapping on the top of the xbox immediately after the disc tray closes. Another suggestion is, and don't do this very often, but when the disc tray closes, immediately turn your xbox 90 degrees backwards so the Disc tray is facing up at the ceiling. If these fail, you may simply just have to play with the disc tray, grab it while closing, dont tug too much, slam it closed really fast. Microsoft really is **** when it comes to making things last, but these should work somewhat, you might just have to buy a new xbox if they don't ever work.
