    Hi I have a fat Xbox from 2006 and nothing has been replaced and it's completely stock. Anyway the disc drive will not open when there's not a disc inside, but when you put a disc in there it spins then it stops and I have to open and close the drive, but usually this fixes the problem, but now the Xbox doesn't detect a disc at all no errors or anything, it just says open the drive on the game tile. I've tried opening and closing it over 10 times and it doesn't seem to work. Does anyone have a fix.

    Try cleaning the laser.
    Otherwise you'd have to replace it or tweak the POT meter, I suspect it's dying.
    It's a miracle your 360 still works even..

    If it is that old and with those symptoms you might also want to consider the rubber band fix -- there is a little belt/band that spins on the motor and opens the tray. They get crusty and nasty as time goes on and cause many of the issues you describe. I don't know if there is a way to do it from the open drive, and I would hate to do that anyway as opening a 360 is easy enough for me.

    I'm surprised it didn't red ring me. XD
