Well thats very hard to do, the problem is that the xbox is overheating, more specific the GPU, thats why it freezes. The easy way would be to open your xbox an leave it that way, I have a xbox that works just when is all open with the parts expose. Very strange but it works. Also put some new thermal compound on your GPU and heatsink.
You could make the room where you play very cold so the xbox will not overheat or put some big fans near the xbox hoping they cool it down. Or stop playing like 15 minutes every 2 hours so it cools.

My xbox 360 elite keeps on saying open tray even though i have a game in i would open it than it would read for about 2 seconds than say open tray again and i dont want to take it apart to void my warranty


The warranty on the XBox 360 is ONE YEAR. If you have had it for more than a year, there is no more warranty to be void. You can open it.

The XBox 360 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser (and/or other components in the drive) will eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the games will stop reading altogether and you will get an "OPEN TRAY" message when you put a disc in and close the tray. What this means is that the XBox 360 thinks that there is no disc in the system.

Hi my xbox 360 slim plays most dvd's but some it not play and it says wrong regan code what do i do


There isn't anything you cab really do without opening the xbox up.
ll DVD's have what is called a region code. this is a code that is specific to 5 regions. in North America, we are region 1, and Japan, they would be region 5. If the Xbox is purchased in North America, the DVD drive in the Xbox, is imprinted with region code 1. This mean it will only play region code 1 movies, and games.

The only thing you can do is to either mod your xbox, or replace the DVD drive with a drive from a different region, but this will make it so you can play dvds from your region.

I have an xbox 360 elite. I got it when they first came out. I try to play games and it freezes up. Then when I would restart it, a whole bunch of japanese symbols pop up and says disc unreadable. This...


Ive gone through, this before, Its means your System is about to die, Best thing to do is Call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and see what they say, instead of tampering with it and voiding warranty, Usually you can send it in they'll fix it, and if they cant fix it you will get a new one

MY XBOX 360 NBA LIVE 09 KEEPS FREEZING UP ON ME. PLEASE HELP ME OUT THANK YOU


Try playing your game without Xbox live at first. If it doesn't freeze up, then you have an internet connection problem. Try reconnecting wires. If it does freeze up without Xbox live, it may just be the game.

Played too many dvds on the xbox, now it says play dvd notplaygam


best thing to do is send it back in to microsoft, if you open the xbox 360 case you will void the warranty, and they wont bother helping you. If you have already voided the warranty, you can find xbox 360 dvd drives on ebay or craigslist for around 30$ USD. Only the drive alone, not a whole xbox
