Hi there. There is a solution out there, called the 'rubberband mod'. By tieing a rubberband to the rail on which the laser slides, you restrict the movement of the laser, and force it to stay within a readable range. It is essentially a bumper. Here's a link with a video that gives all the info on it; http://www.360mods.net/News/article/sid=71.html Hope that helps ! cheebster.

After i put a disk in the drive. I shut the door and wait a minute then the door opens. So I cant play the game.


The reason why the door opens again is due to the fact that the game has a scratch or some type of blemish on it. Try cleaning off the disk and re-inserting the disk again. That should fix the problem. Also make sure to check that nothing is stopping the drive from fully closing. Hope that helps.

Most likely your disk or dvd drive is dirty. Run the disk through a disk cleaner and run a dvd cleaning disk through your drive.

If that dos not work, try removeing disk, close drive, turn off console, unplug power supply, wait 10 or 20 seconds, then reconnect power supply and try again.

If that fails, assumeing other disks will read, your disk may have a major flaw. You can check with your local game store, they often have a machine that may restore your disk, (most places that I know of charge like 1 or 2 $).

Xbox 360 is loud - sounds like a loud fan motor. How can I make it run quietly?


You can try installing the game you want to play on the Xbox 360 Hard Disk, which reduces the motor noise to an extent, however there is no permanent way to fix the loud fan motor noise while playing the game with the disk in the drive.

Make sure you keep your Xbox 360 unit well ventilated, ensure it does not gather dust near the small vents and openings on the unit.

Same thing but with noise


This is more than likely your laser that is dead or dying and its possibly a samsung or hitatchi drive, be
careful when buying a new laser because there is a lot of dodgy ones around at the minute which can damage
your machine or at the very least will be inferior and not last long.

It could also be the logic board or the drive belt too, if the logic board is faulty no matter how many lasers
you try it will do the same, the fix is to replace the logic board.

if its the drive belt well this is very easy to try and is what id try first, open your 360 tray and look
inside the 360 you should be able to see the drive belt, make sure its attached properly and then take this
out. replace it with a new one and see if this recifies your problems.

SOMETIMES if a drive belt is stretched it will not close properly and then a fault like yours will occur. its
all a matter of eliminations. Drive belts can be found on ebay.

Games wont play. Problems with Disk player


If you don't have the tools to open your 360 go to best buy or an office supply store and get a can of compressed air and blow the dust out of the dvd drive. If that doesn't work then the lens needs to be cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. This has worked for me on numerous occasions.

Games wont play. Problems with Disk player


it might be the disk drive lens just inst reading. if you still have warrenty with microsoft call and tell them whats wrong. if not then it will be cheaper if you buy a new disk drive for your xbox 360 and have a game repair shop replace it or just take it to the game repair shop and they can tell you whats wrong for sure. but call microsoft first you have 3 year warrenty with microsoft depending around what time you purchesed your system.

try reseting the system in the system settings this, is sometimes caused by an update not downloading and or installing correctly. once you reset to default, try updating  the system on xbox live. if this continues you might have a drive issue. good luck....

New drive, still says "put in 360 console"


As much as I hate to say this, I think you broke something in your 360. The only solution I can think of is take it to Microsoft or buy a whole new 360.

Disc tray


Not entirely sure but maybe the disk drive bricked, though I wouldn't replace it without looking into it more.  But it would make sense consider the noises.  Was there anything attached to the disc or was the disc damaged after this incident?
