360 Dead Dvd Rom
Posted 01 November 2006 - 10:27 AM
i've done a search but haven't been able to find anything on the forums so hopefully someone can help me out.
Last weekend i was playing my 360 with no problems, i changed discs and it would no longer read. I have a hitachi drive which has been flashed and i was playing a back up game. i then switched to an original and it wouldn't read etiher. checked both discs in another 360 and they were fine.
With both discs i got the open tray message.
I have reverted to the original firmware and have the same problem.
I have tried the pot tweak and still same result.
It doesn't play dvd movies or any games. It does play cds though.
The only other thing i can think of is to relace the laser. Is there any tutorials anywhere on doing this? Does anyone have any other ideas regarding what the problem may be.
It sounds a bit clanky. Normally when it was working i could hear it spin slowly and then the speed would increase dramatically. Now it doesn't spin to the higher speed.
So if anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated. If you need any more info or something else you want me to test, let me know.

My drive does read cds but no game or video dvds (tries to read the dvd but after some seconds and some noise i get the open tray message).
Could the laser be damaged? But how could the xbox read the cds with a damaged laser?
