    Xbox won't read discs

    OK so my Xbox is not reading any discs what-so-ever. Although it didn't start happening until I took a disc out of the tray and put a new one in. I've tried turning it on and off, opening and closing the tray but it still opens up and says 'Open Tray'. Any one know how to fix this problem?

    Re: Xbox won't read discs

    If you can open up the case and look at the CD tray itself, you'll see exactly what you're dealing with. But my thoughts are it has something to do with the laser on the inside. Is something blocking the pointer from reading the discs or has it been bent?

    I've looked in the tray and nothing looks out of the ordinary.

    Sometimes there is a problem with the cache or something. Try clearing, I'm not sure how to but I know you press a sequence of buttons in one of the menus. Just google it maybe?

    Did you tilt the xbox while a game was inside it?

    Did you open the disk tray over and over rapidly?
