SOURCE: my xbox will not read any games it says open tray

What I did was :
1. Shook my Xbox ( Just for a test )
2. Opened the tray and wobbled it around (Up and Down)
3. Opened and closed it a few times.

After that it read the disc and I was able to play my game.

SOURCE: it keeps saying open tray and wont read the disc

Or you can purchase the same model dvd drive for the xbox 360 with the same firmware version on ebay and swap the pc boards inside the dvd drives from the old one to the new one. Which is pretty easy unless you have other wires that are non detachable. Youll have to note the position the cables are in and the way the tabs to the cables fit in. If It has non detachable wires you could always snip them strip them and attach the likewise wires of each kind from each dvd drive to each other as long as they run to the same place. This is simpler than it sounds. Youll need liquid electrical tape, T6 to T10 star drivers to dissassemble the case and a small phillips screwdriver for the dvd drive disassembly and wire stripper tool or knife. Be sure to leave a little length if you have wires that wont detach when you cut them so you have room to work.

The xbox can't read the unscratched and clean discs


yeah, you can keep opening and closing it till it works or you can send it in to get it repaired. i tried every way possible to fix it, but i couldnt. something in the dvd drive has gone out and won't read discs the same anymore.

MY GAMES WONT LOAD


you need to unplug ever cable you have and every accessory you have. Unplug adapters memory units hd inter coolers every thing. let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Plug everything back in then press the button to open the tray to turn it on then put in a different game keep it open . Then when the menu comes go into a program so you can't see play game or close tray. Then when you are in the right place close the tray and it should load. This worked for me 2 times.
