So i attempted to replace the laser in my dvd drive and when i goto insert a game it right away says open tray.
I made sure those 3 paper like things were inserted all the way and they were. So i switched back to the old laser and now its happening on that one too. What do i do wrong how do i fix it? Thanks alot.

What drive is it? Lite-On's and BenQ's are giving me headaches at the mo, Mainly cheap ass laser's being the issue and quality ones sort that out, but a few just refuse to act normally, Ribbon cables are fine and the tracking motor and spindle motors are fine to. I think it's the logic boards breaking down somehow. Going to try and reflow a BenQ and a Lite-On logic board to see if the problem is along those lines..
1st Double check the laser, if it's pot is 5.5ohms then it should work straight away when new! try taking it down to 3ohms and test it. If it still fails, then check the ribbon cables especially the laser cable, if it's the white kind chances are it's not that, if it's the brown one, take it out and hold it up to a light source so you can see if there's any breaks in the tracks, if that's good then check the spindle, turn it with your finger, there should be very little resistance, if it's stiff replace it, then check the tracking motor, turn that with your finger, again if it's stiff replace it. with those checked off there's only the logic board left and on drives with high mileage they do die it seems, at this point it's best to find an 09 Lite-On and use that..

Umm well nothing appears to be broken. I took it all apart and put it all back together. Now what happens is when i put a disc in it sits there and says reading for about 5 mins then switches to play cd. Im using a regular xbox 360 game.
Thats a video of what my drive does. Looks normal and everything. Not sure what the problem is.
