My Xbox is an old fat white 60GB model from 2007. In the last two months I got the 'open tray' disk read error. Sometimes the disk will be recognised and even play but this is only maybe 10% of the time and has not happened in a while. I have taken a few steps to fix this issue.
Step1: Open the Xbox and clean the fans and mother board. Result, same error
Step2: Open the disk drive, clean all the dust out and polish the lazer with rubbing solution. Result, Same Error
Step 3: Push the lazer back on its runners by hand to reset it. Result, Same Error.
The systerm has never had a RROD, ecept duing a power cut over 3 years ago. And this drive error is very new. What can i do now? Can I reset the drive some how? Can I install a new drive? Is their any further cleaning to do?
Please Help, Thank you
