360 disk tray

At first my disk tray wouldn't close, it kept opening back up everytime i closed so since my warranty was already over i took apart and now the piece in the disk tray that holds the disk won't hold the disk right. Ths disk goes lop sided so the 360 won't read it. so i don't know what to do.

What I did was took apart my Xbox and put the disc tray back on the tracks, carefully lifting it over the circle thing in the middle. When I lay my Box down horizontally, it opens and closes fine.

My 360 does not read disc, everytime i place disc in ,it says open tray


I fixed this for me today. I opened the tray, and took the disk out. Just inside in the middle there is a small disk that rotates. I just rotated it a little with my finger to get it moving. Once it started spinning the disk tray closed on its own. I then put a disk in and it started reading it. I guess the piece that moves the disk got stiff and just needed some assistance. Hope this helps.

Do i fix the tray that wont open on my xbox 360


Either you have something sticky spilled on your unit, or you may have to replace the motor for the disc tray. Also take note if the tray is even attempting to open at all. If so, it might just need to be cleaned.

Xbox 360 disk tray wont stay shut


My 360 is/was having a similar problem...my 360 would say "reading disc" then "open tray". Well since my system is only about 8 months old...I opted to send it in for repair. Its under warranty. My system is in route to be fixed as we speak. I would advise you to get yours registered too.

My xbox keeps on reading open tray when i put a disc can any one help me


Mine had the same problem. On mine the spindle wasn't turning the game. It kept trying to then quit and said "Open Tray". The warranty was out so I took it apart opened the dvd drive and took apart the spindle. The grease in the spindle was black, I guess from all the heat. Cleaned it out and put some high temperature grease on spindle shaft and in the hole. It now spins with ease. There are videos on youtube on how to take apart the xbox and to take apart the dvd drive and spindle. Just pay close attention at how tight the screws the hold the spindle down are.I hope this helps.

Whats Wrong


The best solution is to not sweat it at all, and since it is under warranty, just send it back to fix it.
