Sounds an odd problem... the motor on the disc eject system may have simply failed. you may need to send it off.

The disc tray open in the middle of a game and sends me to the dashboard


This usually can happen when it updates dashboard and your xbox gets a bad one. You could try to un-install that and redo it, or let it happen naturally by microsoft, Some say that microsoft in the new dashboard update has anti piracy software that goes wrong, and affects the xbox, but we don't know that to be true, the update could be the issue, and usually is, But there can be other issues too, if you still get all green lights on the xbox then the firmware or updates could be the cause and i would check that first.

The power light blinks, reads open tray/close tray . . .


it sounds like your dvd drive is dead if its still under warranty you should just send it back to microsoft the only other thing you could do is buy a replacement dvd drive and put it in yourself but only do that if microsoft wont take it or you'll void your warranty

My Tray Door popped open after two red lights shut down console and won't close!


Here is a great page that has a step by step process for opening your unit. (they also sell parts and mod equipment)

You may need a new drive, but I doubt it. After you get the Xbox open, peel off the silver tape thats on the bottom front of the DVD player, unplug the 2 connections, and lift it out. Turn the player upside down and remove the 4 screws, flip it back over and make sure that the try is lined up correctly with the mechinism.

I hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!

Xbox stays on dashboard screen


Clean the back and the tray maybe the CD.

Xbox does not read discs.


Getting to the dashboard screen is a good thing but still cannot rule out a bad circuit board or power supply. All the symptoms point to a bad DVD drive but the opening/closing by itself do indicate a problem with the microprocessor. Can you turn the power on and off with the small button?? If not, would definitely suspect bad board.
