I just recently got a new open tray error in the middle of a game. Last time i twisted a little golden screw behind the laser to turn the power up on the laser. I tried it again and it did not seem to fix the error. the laser starts in the correct position. So it cant be that problem. I would go buy a new cd drive but i dont know how to flash drives. So the question is how do you fix the open tray error.

Does it sound like it's even trying to read the games? Also, slim or phat?
