Sounds like the drive needs cleaning or a minor laser adjustment. The process to do this is found on the web. google 360 laser adjustment and you should find a number of sites that will tell you how to do this for free. Watch for the pay sites, they are not telling you anything more than a quality free site. Check 2 or 3 of them out. You should get enough information to be sure you are doing it right. If you are not sure on how to use a multimeter, then find a friend that does. It is really the only thing you need to worry about. A little time and patience and you should be back up and running.

Xbox is not reading any discs, says open tray


Open tray error is common, even more so on Samsung drives.

To fix this you usually really need to open your xbox360 so you can get to the disk drive so you can open it for a self serice. BUT first try to fix it with a laser cleaning kit, they dont cost much to purchase and you can get them from most electronic shops and also ebay.

If a cleaning kit did work then the problem may be your tracks, the disk spin head or the belt that moves the tray.

Once you have your xbox360 opened (lots of good video guides on youtube on how to open the xbox360) you will have to open your disk drive.

When its open, clean the left and right tracks, they can get gummed up with dust, and even tar if the unit is from a smokers home, when the tracks are dirty, it can stop the tray going in all the way then games dont play. Also if the spin head is dirty (the plate the disk sits on to spin the disk) then it does not grip the disk fully and thus does not spin at full speed, giving you read error. Finally the belt inside the drive can be removed and can be boiled in water for a minute or to, this cleans it and brings it back to its original shape, this helps the belt regain lost grip and can also fix this error your having, but belt problems are more for samsung drives.

You should use rubbing alcohol to clean the internal comonents of your drive without causing any damage, you could even clean the laser yourself using a high quality kitchen roll sheet or micro fiber cloth, with rubbing alcohol and gently pass it over the lens to clean it. Once you have done all this, close everthing back up and see if the problem is gone.

If your still having problems then chances are you need a new laser for your drive.

Can't run Halo 3 at all.


Next to cleaning your CD good, try also getting the laser eye cleaned as well, this might help. Also, if the disk is too scratched up then it will not read it, the scratches might be too deep.

Big problem!!!!!


ok seems to me your xbox360 is buggered. Both of you.

How long have you had your xbox360?

Im guessing what a year or two? Beacause Ive got a uncle whos got a xbox whos xbox is broke because its standing up and when he puts a game in its ok, BUT when he takes it out.

It Comes out like ****. Its all scratched up etc. and its due to his HardDrive Failure problems. Basically the hard drive in his xbox360 is either Old , Nackerd Or just ****. SO Im suggesting go send your xbox360 to microsoft or something aka Warrenty. Or Go buy Xbox360 warrenty off GAME. www.game.co.uk <-- £50 - £60
