If you replace the same drive with the same P.C. board back in
the original console you should be good .Provide that the drive is
or was good before you took it apart ( read games) also when
attempting a generic fix it kit ( washers and screws ) and over
heating G.P.U. you can create new problems .What ever you do
DO NOT GO ON LINE with a different drive or your console you
will be band for LIFE !! If you wear successful with your repair
your drive should boot right up . a good drive in the wrong console
will post a white screen to put a 360 game in the console.
Did you just replace the heat sink compound or do a full x clamp
mod ??

Sometimes it opens and sometimes it dont , sometimes it plays discs and sometimes it dont turned it on and had the red rings of death turned it off then on and they were gone some times the fan dont start...


This is called Red Ring of Death or RROD by the community, it means that the CPU or GPU or both have a bad solder joint, that is caused from rapid heating and cooling from poor cooling design of the xbox 360. To fix it is pretty simple. Follow these instructions to take apart your 360: http://www.rrodfix.com/how-to-take-apart-the-microsoft-xbox-360-game-console.html Stop once you've removed the dvd drive. Now Remove the fans from the back, and set them on the heatsink on the right the flat one, and make sure they are pointing where the air is going up. Put a peice of of carboard or plastic something non conductive in between the heatsinks to prevent airflow from the fans. Turn on the 360, and leave it til it goes from 3 rings to 2 rings, wait 3 minutes, then switch the fan over to the other side. Wait about as long as you did for the other one then turn off the 360. Wait 1 hour for the 360 to cool off. DO NOT move the 360 while it is cooling down durning this period or you will permantly ruin it, the solder is being reflowed. After an hour, put the fans back, and turn the 360 on, it should work. Once its working, I recommend doing a 12 volt mod on the fans to prevent RROD from happening again, and changing out the thermal paste with artic silver 5. As for reading discs, open up the drive air it out, but not the laser, use a qtip and some rubbing alchol, clean it off and put it back together. Fans all you can do is replace them which I recommend just buying off of ebay or llamma.com

My xbox 360 has stopped reading all discs


Take a can of air and blow some air into the drive to be sure no specs of dust or dirt is affecting the laser.

If that doesn't work then its going to be either the laser or the dvd drive that is bad. Replacing the laser is cheaper but more time consuming cause you have to take apart the system then the drive to replace the laser, whereas the drive you just take apart the system and swap out the drive. You can get the drives from Ebay all the time.

I have an xbox 360 which contains a philips/benq


ok....if the dvd you bought is the EXACT same part #, and it does not have a board made to it, you should be able to just "drop it in". the system will think its the same thing. if its a generic or different part #, then you will have to "flash" the BIOs on the board for the dvd you are trying to use. its a pain, but first you have to find the correct flash version. if that is needed, there are many forums on upgrading and flashing that unit. id put in the new drive and at least try it

My xbox 360 wont play discs - keeps repeating open tray, I can play demos and xbox live but not discs or movies, any tips?? Thanks!


I just found a post on this and it worked for me. My warranty is past. So I took matters in my own hands. I took it apart which was fairly simple cleaned the lens and surrounding areas but it didn't work. But this is what I found out its not reading the disk because the disk isn't spinning. With the box apart and drive open I put it back in the system and turned on the power I noticed the drive would spin slowly I then while the disk was trying to load I spun the disk by hand to help it along and wala it started spinning I powered down put it back together and as of 10:45 2night my gaming nightmare is over. I hope this was helpful. Good luck all!!

Unplayable disc


There is a good chance you DVD drive might have either a faulty motor or laser. In this case if you have any type of warranty you should use it but if you don't you'll have to purchase either a new XBox 360 or a new DVD drive.

The new DVD drive will not be able play games if you simply swap the drives. In order to have it play games you'll have to flash the old Key from the broken drive onto the replacement drive.

Either that or if your system is still under the 3 year warranty from RROD by Microsoft you can try to induce RROD on your XBox 360 and take up a claim with them. Most of the time they send u a refurbrished XBox 360 or a new one.

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.

My xbox wont read my game disc


if you can't send the xbox back to Microsoft this worked for me.
The 360 would spin the game up and say reading but than stop and do nothing.
I took the case apart, took out the cd drive, took that apart so i could get to the laser.
put a little big of very clean water on a q-tip, wipe the laser lens down and use the dry side to dry it off.  put it somewhat back together and test, this worked fine for me, it read a disk no problem.

Xbox 360 dosent READ AND ROTATE WELL! PLZ HELP ME!


Hi there,

you will need to take this apart, and look inside the disc drive itself, and most likely tights some screws up as they get loose with the vibrations of the drive
