Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
When i tried to play halo 3, i clicked the button next to the tray to open it, but nothing happens. I also tried to click the 'open tray' button on the screen, but still nothing happens, if you can help it would be greatly apreciated.
Turn off your machine. Take the front cover of the Xbox 360 off, this will expose the front of the machine and where the dvd-rom is there is a pinhole underneath it. Use something small like a thick paperclip, bend it so its straight and then push that into the hole, it should open it then.
Sometimes the black rubber that is around the wheels near the front of the drive that you can see when it opens gets dirty. If you have a qtip, spray some window cleaner on it and put it up against the black rubber and hold it lightly there and with your other hand move the door back and forth and what this will do is clean the black rubber. Do this plenty of times so the whole rubber gets slightly damp and you should see some black marks on your qtip showing you that your cleaning it properly. Put the front plate back onto the front of the Xbox 360.
After this then then turn the machine on and press the button for the dvd-rom and the door should open and close when you want it to again.
Hope this helps.
