Scott Neil: You sir are an absolute bloody legend,thank you,mine needed realigning,after 20 mins of messing with the 3 screws it works better than it ever did!
Scott Neil: Or permanently fix it with this guys help,tilting with a disc in will only eventually lead to the disc being ripped up.
Scott Neil: T10 driver.
Scott Neil: Its not the game,its the fact that the firmware is a bit older and you have been using the drive for ages,its wear and tear,just happens that games with tons packed onto the disc tax the laser and drive more causing it to die,it would have been dead soon anyway.Always install.
Scott Neil: Yet you still understood him perfectly?,6 of 1 half a dozen of the other man.
Kevin Maddabitch: lol, a new one costs 50$, and not even then will it work. Because each disc tray only works with a specific xbox. The only way to put in a new disc tray is to modify the xbox and the disc tray, for that you need to buy equipment and hook it up to your computer etc. lol...
I just bought a "new" xbox for 60$ instead :p
FloridaBYWrestling: Tray opens great but as soon as i put the metal casing back on the drive it gets jammed again.
ducket0: One quarter turn on the left laser screw fixed mine, thankyou mate!
TeRa sam: with my xbox I go to play games and most the time ill be in the game and it dashboards and says opening tray but it dosent open it , it just flashes happens after like every 10 mins of play but stops after a few times
ThisusernameASW: I also just got gta v and now my xbox is freaking up. fml

popacragun: So i had the error and had a extra dvd drive so i switched the motherboards and it loads disc and says play game and when i go to that it says disc unreadable. i have cleaned the laser multiple times and now after i shut my xbox off and on i have 3 red lights(rrod)?? HELP PLEASE!?
Dino Katz: i think its the same here. is it philips-lite on?
Dino Katz: everyone ith the same problem with gta5 AND having disc ne installed just leave a comment. lets mob up D:
Dino Katz: same here for about a week now. i ve ordered a toolkit, shipped today, im n sittin on it :( havent played much on mine, it from 2009 and i have only around 2700 scorepoints it seem lie gta5 somehow freaks up our consoles so that we get a new one next month. i close the tray and drive goes like "broom broom" and it gives me open tray. sometimes it does only one "broom" then it might read the disc or give you "undetected disc" or stuff
shakila sessoms: so i have to keep ejecting the disk out over and over till it gives me the play game, any idea what that might be
Chris Barnett: One quarter turn on the left screw fixed the "Open Tray" error, and my console will read games now, but after some minutes of gameplay it gives me "Disk Unreadable" error and boots to home screen. Any clue why?
durhamazhogan: Did you attach the magnet back in if you took it off???
durhamazhogan: torx screwdriver T10 / T8
kadeem robins: what tool did you use pleaseeeee i need the name of the tool to get the screws out thanks
Callum D: thanks mate, my xbox started messing up today, with abit of tinkering following your guide it works again already :D
dwizzlejerk: You and me both. =(
TheDrummingXbox360: Haha... Or you could be like me... Having GTA 5 since release and being excited for the multiplayer, when you get home the night before it releases, to find it pulling off this crap!
FeaRJaMIKaZe: I went to fix my xbox and were gunna test when I somehow broke the magnet.
HollowClyde: so i wasnt the only one. had to install the game on another xbox cause the install disk woudnlt work.
thunthermike: i had the same freaking problem!
yahir95: dude thats nothing ive had gta v since came out and cant even play it for 10 mins coz my laser is freaked up
Sebastian Solorza: I fixed my drive with this but now it spins way too much and the disc flies out of the Xbox
xMachoMancha: I think my issue has to do with the magnet inside the disc drive. When I take out the magnet (along with the metal and plastic pieces) from the metal disc drive casing, I attach the pieces back together and place them on the center of my disc. It reads properly and offers "Play Game." Yet when I reattach the magnet pieces back to the the metal casing and screw the casing back onto the tray, it doesn't read again. I think it has to do with the pieces being loose when attached to the casing. Help!
gater312ify: Absolute genius I skip straight to the 2 screws on the optic twisted the left one quarter turn with my finger. Now it runs like a champ. Thanks bro!!!! Saved me a hundred bucks
Riverboy1986: I was playing GTA5 yesterday and it black screened and reset the game on its own. I wasnt sure if it was the game that glitched out or my console, but now it doesnt read any discs, just the open tray bullcrap.
Riverboy1986: Just happened to me this morning... Day after my birthday. Thanks for the gift Microsoft, you cunts. I just bought 3 new games for it too
Mike Hawk: Liked and Subscribed. Thanks for the help. I did the alcohol with the laser and bam! The disk was read right away and booted up flawlessly.
gamma ray: What the hell do I do if my game plays for 15 minutes then says disk unreadable, happens to every freaking game of mine
AweSomo84: just wait and the game will freak you over like me ,.. only seeing black fyucking screen now
TheA7RT: i love you<3
Jordan Raposo: *To
Jordan Raposo: Holy crap! Thanks man do freaking happpy!!!:)
Auston Townsend: Thank you so much!! Turns out it was the last step fix! THANKS!
eric miller: Thanks a lot 2 quater turns of the left screw did it , its even reading some of my really scratched up games, works like new . Awesome
throebucks: Thank u soo much! Ive had problems with my box for awhile now. I cant lie, i did the tapping trick for the longest. But of course it eventually stopped working. Disassembled my xbox, and turned the left screw a quarter turn and she works like new.
