On all the different types of CD/DVD players I have worked on for the last 30 years + when the tray closes the laser pickup moves to the home position ( next to the spindle motor) it then attempts to read the TOC with the CD wave length laser ( 780 Nano meters ) then it tries the DVD version wave length ( 650 Nm ) An Xbox game is a DVD format

In the video you have posted the pickup is not returning to the start position I also didn't notice the lens trying to focus either.

To me that would indicate a issue with the sled motor/mech or the electronics has failed.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
