Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Xbox 360 disc tray re-entry

I took my disc tray out to clean it after it had given me a disc read error. Now when I try to re-insert it into the console it seems to catch on something and doesn't go in all the way no matter if I try the open/close button. There seems to be no way to remove the top of the console to re-insert it into place. What do I do?

    My son has pulled the dvd drive out of the 360. When I try to put it back in it seems to be blocked by something. Is there anyway to fix this myself?

    strip the machine down and take out the dvd drive and re-seat it properly. sometimes when you get problems like this it is better to remove everything and start from scratch. forcing it will only make the problem worse.

If you do open the 360 you will be breaking the warnty which if you cant fix you wont be able to send it back but the magnet that holds the disc drive stable and from moving must've fell most people who have this problem open the 360 and glue it back into place

Won't read disc's


theres a known problem with the hitashi dvd drive in the xbox 360.
the only solution to this is a home repair job, look up on youtube on how to do this, although this isnt recommended as it voids warranty.
so the best way is definitely just to ring microsoft and send ur console in for repair.

Discs won't load



Bad Cdrom/dvd
The laser going bad is a pretty common issue with the drives, since it's a Hitachi that spindle motor could be all gunked up with dirt as well and cause that issue also.
if ya have a Hitachi, if it's a Samsung it could just be the laser.
