Clean disk then laser , laser cleaning discs are cheap and worth having one. You may require a new dvd drive though.

My xbox 360 elite keeps on saying open tray even though i have a game in i would open it than it would read for about 2 seconds than say open tray again and i dont want to take it apart to void my warranty


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.

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.

My xbox 360 wont read my games it just says (open tray)but i've only had it for a couple of weeks.


Hi,

The lens is out of alignment so doesn't know where the start of the disk is. This means that you will get the "Open tray" message with each disk you place a disk in the drive.

If you have any warranty on the Xbox 360 then i recommend that you sent it back to Microsoft for adjustment.

If there is no warranty then what you could do is lay the Xbox on its side and repeatedly tap the top of the Xbox when you put a disk in to see if it will read.

If not then you will have to take the Xbox apart which is a difficult job, then take the CD/DVD drive out. Take that apart and adjust the lens unit yourself or take the console to a repair store.


Regards.
