  1. My old xbox did this. I would have to continuously open and close the disc tray to get it to work. Try blowing inside the xbox in case the problem is just dust on your laser but in any case your disc reader is going out if it is not already out. You will have to send it back to microsoft for them to fix it for you.

  2. I have had this happen MANY TIMES. Try to repeat the opening and closing of the tray many times. if this does not work, try unplugging all cables from all sources, and plau them all back in, and try it again. If this does not work, you may have a damaged lazer disk reader (not sure if that is what it is called, but u get the point. you may have to send it in. Hopefully it is under warranty, otherwise it could cost you about $100 without shipping and handling. Good luck!

  3. The Xbox Live update on November 1, 2010 caused a large number of Xbox 360 to stop reading official discs and show an “open tray” message on even non-modded consoles. Microsoft still hasn’t acknowledged or fixed the issue. There is also a new January 19, 2011 update that is now also giving people similar problems.

    There are some complaint topics on this at the official forum. Simply sign into the forum with your Microsoft Live ID and add your complaint to it to pressure Microsoft to acknowledge the problem and fix it.
