Default I think my xbox is broke help?

Basically, it won't even attempt to read the discs. For quite some time it had trouble reading them and i had to eject the disk tray about 100000000 times for it to work but now it's not even trying, it just straight away says open tray. just wondering if anyone else has ever had this problem or knows if this is fixable or if i need to buy a new xbox, fanx

i had this problem for a very very long time. there is this banging method that works pretty well where you tap repeatedly on the top of the xbox after you inject the tray. i ended up just buying a new xbox though after a few years.

yeah i had this open tray error a year or two ago. what puba suggested is what most people do for short term usage. wailing on your xbox habitually gets really annoying and noisy, don't use your hands if you're a baby like me

i wouldn't suggest doing that with more valuable discs. when halo peach came out i copped it the night of release and tried doing so and it scratched mine up. that was the only time it happened out of countless attempts to load stuff, but it was real crummy. had a friend risk his to install it, then bought halo 3 on demand later on because it's cheap and priceless imo

either send your xbox in (if you have warranty or can afford it) or try to fix it yourself. my friend bought a new xbox around the time mine stopped reading discs and he let me salvage his disc drive. they're not complicated to replace at all, but opening your box voids warranty. if you go that route, look up which model drive your particular xbox has as to not waste your time and money. i'm sure the drive can be fixed without replacing it, but i was fortunate enough to have an easier option
