There may be a problem with the belt or gears that push and pull on the disc tray.

Here is a manual solution to fixing the problem when all else fails.

a. Unplug your Xbox console from the power source. b. Locate the manual release button on your Xbox console.

For most Xbox consoles, the manual release button is located in a small pinhole to the left of the eject button under the disc tray.

For some Xbox consoles, the manual release button is located under the disc tray. It can be under the "O" or the "B" in the word "XBOX" that appears on the tray. c. Insert a straightened paper clip or other small tool in the hole at an angle to the left. Gently push the paper clip to try to press the manual release button and partially open the disc tray. This may take several tries. Typically, a thin paper clip works better than a thick paper clip.

If you insert the paperclip in the hole and find an obstacle, this indicates that your Xbox console's manual release button is located in a different area of the console. Look under the "O" or the "B" in the word "XBOX" that appears on the tray. If this is the case, insert the paperclip under the "O" as outlined in step C. If you find an obstacle, insert the paperclip under the letter "B”. The manual release button is located in one of these three locations. d. After the disc tray partially opens, pull the tray with your fingers to fully open the tray.


If even after all of that it still doesn't work you will have to contact microsoft and have it serviced

Xbox360 wont play origanal xbox games


Some XBox games have both a 360 and original XBox version, so you can't play them on the 360. Other games simply aren't compatible. Your game may fall into one of those two groups.

I have never played XBox and have just been given an XBox original. I have hired a game from local shop, turned on Xbox put in disc, what do I do now to start to play


to play a game in the original xbox you just put the disc in and close the tray. They load automatically. For more information on how to use your newly obtained xbox original here is the user manual in PDF form you will need a pdf reader to open it such as adobe reader. click here for original xbox user manual. Im wondering since you say you just got a game from a local shop, Make sure it is an original xbox game. If you need further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you further. thanks, Midwest-tek

My original xbox shuts itself off after 2 minutes of being on, what is the deal?


Its over heated and old so the mother board and the little rectangle thingy right next to it has overheated also but still chooses to turn on. Same problem to my first xbox 360. Turns out there are flaws. Its time for a new xbox. or just get this kind of gel that conducts heat and open your xbox and put it on

Original XBOX will not read games or DVDS


original xbox??..

meaning the black one???

or the xbox 360..

if its original xbox, send it for a replacement already

if its 360,
does it say reading and just goes back to open tray??

-check the time and date settings on the console, even the time zone
-check if there is any corrupted file on the hard drive
-try to load a disc without the harddrive,if this works you need to perform system maintainance on the xbox

Two XBOX 360 Games won't play on original XBOX Console?


Erm, the clue is in the name guys. ORIGINAL XBOX plays ORIGINAL XBOX games. The XBOX 360 plays games designed for the XBOX 360 plus an array of ORIGINAL games. The original console will NOT play 360 games.
