Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

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

Please help, my tray door popped open after two red lights shut down my 360 console and won't close. I finally closed it manually and when I turned it back on the center green light was blinking and the screen says "Opening" on the dashboard. I eventually opened it manually with a paper clip to get the disk out and after it was opened all the way the center green light quit blinking after I pressed the eject button and the dashboard says "Closing". My Warranty is out since April 2008 and I'm ready to pop this thing open, so Please help!

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

http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/Xbox-360-Disassembly.htm

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!!

f the tray won't open or close properly, check the belt for dirt or wear. Then check the tray for misalignment. If needed, remove, clean, lubricate, and reinstall the tray following the instructions in the owner's manual.
God bless you

CD DOOR WON'T OPEN


Just below the CD/DVD tray there is a tiny hole. Insert a straighten paper clip in this hole and gently push the paper clip until the CD/DVD tray pops out. You can now pull the tray out until it is in the fully opened position to remove the disc.
Try pushing the eject button to see if the tray closes, then push the eject button to see if the tray opens.
If this foes not work then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and it needs to be replaced.

Output tray is closed


Hello.
This is the door on the very front of the printer. When down it acts like a paper tray to catch printed paper.
This door must be open before you start printing. to open it simply push the top of it slightly, and it will pop open.
I hope this helps, Regards GM

Xbox 360 Console: My xbox 360 will keep opening its tray and it won'...


The very first thing, I would suggest you is to check the CD cover, as sometimes labels on CDs prevent tray to close.
If that does not work then do the following.
Remove disc from the tray, make sure the faceplate is on correctly.
The faceplate is the plastic piece on the front of your console.

• Press firmly around the edges of your faceplate to snap it into place (make sure it is flush with the rest of the console). If the faceplate is not on correctly, the disc tray won't close.

• If you find that the faceplate is the problem, please contact Xbox customer support to order a replacement faceplate.

If this does not resolve your issue, please try step 3 and other steps from following link.

http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/xbox360/kb.aspx?ID=907590&lcid=1033&category=hardware
If you wish you can also use following link of interactive troubleshooting wizard, which will assist you to narrow down on the issue.

This solution is absolutely free. If your issue is still not resolved, please feel free to ask.
Please rate and give your feedback.
Thanks :)
