Question about Video Game Consoles
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
