    im guessing this may be a samsung dvd drive inside the 360, try replacing the belt inside the drive which is attached to the main motor. sometimes they can either shrink and be too tight or they can stretch so they are too slack. replace it and try again.

My Xbox likes to eject my game mid game and sometimes it will open and close when i want to start a game.


Yes this is the disc reading error and it happens because of overheating on the back of the drive and you will need to get this fixed. You can send it in and they will fix it for you although this can take about 4 weeks and also the other thing that you have to think of is the repair cost will be about $150.

The other way that you can fix it is to use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide to fix the problem.

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 Support to order a replacement faceplate.

My xbox 360 disc tray wont open how do i fix that problem


Slap the top of the the box as you press eject. that will get it open.
then wipe a little rubbing alcohol on the black belt
just under the tray . And a little petroleum jell in the
tracks under the tray . Then open and close the tray to
work it in.

Disc Tray wont stay shut


A lot of people have this problem. Before you post, look around.

Anyway, I was able to call xbox 360 customer support. We did the troubleshooting but it still would not work, so they took my xbox 360 in for repairs. I would not try to fix it on your own because it might negate the warranty.
