Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

It takes about 10 minutes of restarting and opening my disc tray until my xbox reads that there is a game or dvd in the tray! and it then sometimes says there is trouble reading the disc. Is there something wrong with the laser reader?

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.

I Played COD Black Ops Two Days Ago And Now I'm Getting This Open Tray Error.. I Tired Blowing In It, Cleaning the Brand New Disc off It Reads It Sometimes and Then Says Open Tray... Help Me


I have the same preoblem with my 360. Try to take the disk out and power off the console. power it back on and let it start up without the disc inside. After this turn it off and restart the console. Put the disc in and it should start.

Its a problem with the sensor in the DVD drive of the console. You warranty may still cover it so if it continues I would call Microsoft at 188-4-my-xbox.

When i place a disk in my Xbox 360 console it


I have had this happen about 3 times. The first time was when i figured out how to fix it. The 2nd and 3rd were temporary.(Just needed to be turned off for a moment) You need to shut the console off for atleast 15 minutes 10 at the lowest with everthing unplugged. I mean the hard drive, memory unit, and all cables, and adapters. Then after 10-15 minutes plug everything in and DON'T PRESS the BUTTONS ON THE XBOX OR THE CONTROLLERS. Press the button to open the tray and take out the game or dvd and put in a different one. If this doesn't work do it all over again and then put in a different game or dvd not the previous ones and turn on the console the same but then a soon as you get the disc in and closed in shut it off then open the tray and wait till you are at the main menu go into any program so you can't see it is reading and close the tray. If that doesn't work contact the xbox support line. Really hope this works for you.

Xbox Disc Tray Loose


If you are comfortable with taking apart your system, I would advise taking the case off and then finding the dvd-drive, removing the case on that and simply tightening the screws on the tray. Don't tighten them too much, but make sure they are snug. Then test to see if it still wobbles and it should be fixed. If you are not comfortable with taking apart your system you will need to find a repair shop that can do it for you.
Please rate, thanks!
