Xbox trey put in disk says readin then just says open trey

Open tray is a laser fault normally starts by the console struggling to read discs.

You can have this repaired for you by places such as Xbox-Reviver or LTrepairs i wouldnt recomend changing a laser yourself as they are very delicate and it's not an easy diy repair.

Tray is off track and the front doesnt light up and has problems pairing with the remotes

The remote not sinking up with the console is either weak batteries in the conrtoler or a dead R.F. pcb aka ring of lights. The RF board cost 10.00 on ebay and it's plug and play.

The tray bing off track , will require you to disassemble the cd rom drive and
re set it . If the laser is in the up position and the trey is open you can try
to turn the eject pulley hub ( the one with the small black belt on the inside bottom
under the tray to lower the laser in to tray's open position . Just be sure
not to force the trey in, as this may damage the support frame.

Keep saying open trey

Inspect and clean your disc Take a close look at the bottom side of your game, movie, or music disc (the side without a label or image). Are there scratches? Excessive scratches or smudges can prevent your console from reading the disc. Clean your disc Hold the disc by the edges without touching the top or bottom surfaces. Using a soft, clean, slightly damp cloth, lightly wipe from the center of the disc outward.

· Note Use ONLY water to clean the disc.

· Once the disc is clean, load the disc into your console and see if the disc plays.

The game won't read any disc, it keeps saying open trey.

you need to purchase a lazer disc cleaner it looks and works just like a normal dvd disc but it has brushes on it that when put through the player brushes the dust of the laser lens this needs to be done on a regular bases to keep your lazer working to its optimum level and hense fixing your problem.

It will not read my disk

This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Microsoft and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Open trey

You need to replace your disc drive. It is either not spinning correctly or not reading it correctly.

Open trey all the time.

First goto Richs PSX online and find out what drive
you have , then buy the correct laser for your drive .
They cost 20.00-30.00 . find a tutorial on how to
disassemble your console and drive , with a little
time and patients you should be able to replace
your dead laser. infact buy 2 or 3 laser and fix
your friends console , It's really not that hard+
you save 60.00 or so.

Option 2 , take it to a repair shop , and have
them swap out the laser for 70.00-80.00

if you need more info ask
