    Hi, i have a modded xbox 360.. was playing original and backups.. but a few were starting to have trouble loading... i assumed a new laser was needed as my son had replaced his laser and that solved the problem for him...

    he replaced the laser.. and now all i get is open tray when i try to load a game... it won't play backups or originals... so i thought it could be a bad laser i had bought from ebay and so i put the old one back in but that is also saying open tray.. so now it's broken completely... does anyone know what the problem could be?? i have a 5 year old driving me up the wall waiting for it to get fixed lol...

    I bought a laser that said for benq drive hop-141x (vad6038)... but another ebay site said that laser fits DG-16D2S which is the lite-on model i have



    thanks for any help offered

    did you remove the anti-static solder on the new laser before installing it?

    I concur with wabashman. Brand new lasers typically have a anti static solder point that needs to be removed. Grab your soldering iron...it's quite easy.

    LOL, pretty common problem. Then again if you got the laser from ebay it's probably Japanese crap. edited by ddp
