please help as i have searched the forums for two days with no answer. i purchased a 360 from ebay when i received it, it arrived as described no RROD, video works, open tray error, seal intact. any how thinking this would be an easy fix i installed new laser, still having same problem:(i did desolder the three tabs left of the ribbon cable. the pot was reading 3.54 adjusted to 3.0 back to 3.54.
insert disc- screen reads "reading"- disc spins approx 2 sec- laser comes on approx 2 sec- disc stops- does this 4 to 5 times- screen reads open tray.
notes: im not sure about the firmware installed because my sata chipset is not compatible with the benq drive, i would assume it is orig since seal was intact?
also i do have another drive on the way as well as a via sata pci card.
i do know for certain that the drive motor works, the laser works, the laser should move freely on the rails because i pulled it back when disc wasnt in to see if it would move forward and it did. not sure if it can go backward but it should.
thanks for any suggestions or help that you may offer.
