    Today my xbox stopped reading discs, any advice on how to fix it? I've already tried cleaning the dust out of it

    Before doing a thing, I'd check first to make sure you're in warranty.

    YouTube has some "solutions" to your dysfunction, but I warn you they are VERY risky tricks and tactics, so I've never tried any of them. But if you're completely S.O.L. you might want to give it a go.

    Good idea. Try them out before resorting to anything drastic.

    My xbox barely reads discs as well at this point. I have to spend 20+ minutes constantly opening and shutting the disc tray, along with tapping/lightly banging on it just to get it to read a disc.

    Honestly, I'd rather just get a new one at this point, the $99 repair price isn't worth it for me.
