Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Why on earth would your friend tell you to put WD-40 in a game system? More than likely the WD-40 got on the lense and it left a film that won't come off easily. Depending on how much you sprayed, your system could be completely messed up.
PLEASE DO NOT KEEP IT PLUGGED IN
WD-40 is super flamable - trust me - we use it to torch bees nests and such.
One little short due to the liquid and it will spark, igniting your system.
You need to get it to a professional shop, preferably the XBOX 360 support center. It's pretty much ruined until you get all the film off, and trust me, it can be done but it's a heck of a lot of work.
You may need to get a new one. The best way to go is GameStop or EB Games, they sell used ones for cheap and give you a 30 day waranty on their systems.
Don't let your friend tell you how to fix anything else, please.

Yes dont put WD-40 in it lol!
It will break it!
The good news is that you can fix this because the problem is down to overheating on the sensors on the back of the drive and you will be back up and running in no time.
You should use a good repair guide to show you how or you should send it in.

Do you have a BenQ/Phillips Drive? Before finding this out, do you still have warranty that you have not previously voided? If so, the obvious answer is to send it in.
There's a little piece you need to fix inside of certain BenQ Optical Drives, as this is a common error with them:
Otherwise I suggest buying a new drive, you can get them for anywhere between 30-50 USD.
