How To: Fix the "open tray" problem on your XBox 360

Fix the "open tray" problem on your XBox 360

This video is for XBox owners who are experience the "open tray" problem. This is when you insert the disc, a few seconds later, it'll ask you to open tray again, and then it won't even acknowledge that there's a disc in the tray. Assuming you know how to open up your XBox, you'll be able to see the parts of the disc drive. It consists of two parts, the part where the disc spins on, and the laser, which reads the disc and it sits just a little bit away from the middle of the drive. The problem occurs when the laser shifts out of position and sits near the outer edge of the disc drive. To fix it, simply just move the laser back to its original position and it will work again. Avoid touching the top of the laser because that is where it comes in contact with the disc and reads the data.

Dude you rule thank you for this!!!!!

What you'll want to do is open up your disc drive, (where the disc goes) and blow some air into the space that let's you see into the xbox itself. I think this sometimes works because dust or something gets on the laser that reads the disc, and by blowing some air into the space, you remove that dust.
