Just don't get the q-tip dripping wet. Have it just wet enough to where it's not going to get all up in the laser and mess it up.
jimlfixit said:a q tip is a cotton bud to us brits. the elastic band that is attached to a motor may have dirt on it and maybe slipping, take it off and clean it. what drive do you have in your 360? cos there are 2 types of lasers, its quite easy, but in a samsung ms28, if you mess the angle of the laser after reinstalation, its a real pain to get 100% right. you could also try to calibrate the laser (increase power) on your drive using a multimeter, by turning the tiny potentiometer untill you get about 3.9 on the meter.
Well, If the Q-tip and alcohol doesn't work then you may need to caliberate your laser. here is a tut on how to calibrate it. This goes for both of you guys that are having problems with it.Gears Gamer said:What is a q-tip? I also have a problem. My xbox struggles to read games so I'm gonna try to clean the laser and then replace it if it doesn't work. But also my disc drive won't open properly so I have to ram it open. Would I need to replace the disc drive to fix this or is it some other mechanism causing this?

BTW I take NO credit for that tut...
And once you get it open then you might as well go ahead and clean everything and that will fix the tray opening problem.
