Question about Microsoft Xbox Console
I just got a 360 that when turned on the green light flashes quickly and dashboard shows "opening" but the tray doesn't open. When I push the eject button the tray doesn't open but I can hear the motor cycle as if it was opening then closing. If I use a paper clip to open the tray then push eject the tray closes normally but "opening" still is displayed on the dashboard. I have checked the power and SATA cable and they are seated. Anyone else had this happen and know of a fix short of replacing the drive? I can buy a new drive for around $30 but prefer not to do the flash thing, I would be comfortable buying a new drive and swapping out the board with my existing board but I'm not sure that will solve this problem. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Its the drive. Most of the problems with the drive not opening is the belt slipping inside. If you can find a new belt for the motor then change it. Otherwise I would Swap out the board to the new drive and it should solve your problem.
