Tray won't open and game freezes

Hello,
My Xbox 360 is having issues with the tray not opening and when it does all games I try to play freeze. I spent too much money on this for this to be happening.

This has happend to me 3 times and it was so annoying, what you should do is send it back for repair. When you get it back try it and see if it works, if it does i would recommend playing 30 min - 1 hour a day to avoid damage to the console again. If you get it back and the same thing happens and the disk tray screws up aswell as the games then i would consider getting the PS3 and see how that goes.
I hope i helped you.

I've tryed putting xbox360 games in a xbox360 but it sais open tray


The XBox 360 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser (and/or other components in the drive) will eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the games will stop reading altogether and you will get an "OPEN TRAY" message when you put a disc in and close the tray. What this means is that the XBox 360 thinks that there is no disc in the system.

The warranty on the XBox 360 is ONE YEAR. If you have had it for more than a year, there is no more warranty to be void. You can open it.

My 360 will not read resurfaced games and many times i ctually have to hit it in order for it to open the disk tray. i was wondering if this could be caused by a faulty laser or dvd drive?


The disk tray often gets stuck with the older models of the Xbox 360. After opening the tray, lightly spray some WD-40 onto the areas where the tray moves along.
As for not reading games, it's important that you find whether the issue is the game or the Xbox. Try playing the game on another Xbox console. If it works, your DVD drive is most likely faulty.

360 say's "Open Tray" and dont read any disks!


The drive is damaged and needs to be replaced. YOu can get a replacement on ebay fairly cheap.
If you want a ps3 then that is up to you, but they also have their fair share of problems, and are not nearly as friendly to service.

Game freezes during game play


Your Xbox is probably overheating, it just may not overheat to the point where it red rings. I would suggest red ring fixing it, and post results if you try it.

Tray won't open and all games freeze


You Should sent it to microsoft or if your warranty had expired then u must dismantle your console. once dismantled there should be a small cog at the bottom of the disc drive if you turn that anti clockwise it should manually unjam ur drive
