My new xbox 360 with kinect, the cd tray keeps opening and closing over and over by itself please help


If it is new, Microsoft will fix it under warrenty. http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-360/troubleshoot/warranty/default.aspx

But.. sounds like the CD open button is stuck in.
The button on the case is a springy plastic lever extended to reach the button on the drive itself, inside the case.

If you plan on opening it (the case), you will need a special tool to avoid damage to the case, and you will void the warrenty.

Without a cd in it, try tapping the case on sides with finger tips or knuckles, and on the front of case next to button. Hopefully to allow button to pop out to normal position.

My xbox is not letting play games wat do i do


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

I took apart my xbox 360 and when i turned it back on i saw that the disc wasnt turning fast enough and it just saids open tray


the disk is not being spun more than likely. thats why i always get open tray. wat u need to do is this
1) unplug it all and take it apart
2) get to the disk drive
3)unscrew the 4 screws on the SIDES onf the drive. not the 2 in the middle 4)take off the cover GENTLY
5)put the drive back intoplace without the top on it
6)plug it up and turn it on
7) observe the disk want to spin but it wont. there is not enough pressure to get it going, wat u need to do it give it a little "push-start" spin it while applying pressure. it may take a few trys to get the disk going fast. it will need to start going very fast.
8) when it does that, quickly place the top back onto the drive without screwing it back on.
it should contunie to spin. turn it off, unplug it, screw the top back onto the drive, then reassemble the 360. works for me EVERy time

Hey Jay- There is a plastic disc that sits on the centre of the drive inside the box, this disc has a magnet in it that is supposed to hold the game cd in place. What's happened is the plastic has become dislodged from the computer drive and is not the magnet portion is stuck to the drive housing (also metal).

You need to open up the game console, remove the drive and the drive cover and get that plastic disc out of it's holding plate. Once out, you just reinsert the drive (without the cover) and set the disc on top of the game cd-give the game a spin or two with your fingers and it should start up....problem fixed

If you search on Youtube you can see a repair video for this. It takes time, and you have to tear apart the game to get at this puppy. I've since fixed mine and left the plastic game housing off as well, so as to get rid of the overheating problem.

Screw microsoft and their crappy manufacturers.

If its still under warranty, and the seal hasn't been cracked, contact Microsoft1.gif.

Try what hijackthis1 suggested, if that doesn't fix it, try this.

Since you have the 360 apart, and the top cover off of the dvd4.gif drive, here we go...

There's a circular cut-out that's glued to the top cover that you removed from the dvd drive, right below the sticker with all of the drive information. I was able to pop out the cut-out. After that you now have (3) pieces in your hand, the cover, cut-out, and a plastic piece.

Connected the dvd drive back in the 360 with the top cover off.

Put a game or movie in the drive, don't hit the eject botton, just put the disc in the tray.

Now with the disc in the tray, put the plastic piece in the center of the disc. Its magnetic, so it should kind of lock in to place.

Connect the power/av cords in the 360 and turn her on.

You should see the disc try to spin. (It may spin once or a couple times around, but it will stop). When you see the disc start to spin, GENTLE, spin/turn the disc in the direction in wants to go. It should load the game or dvd with no problems.

Reassemble the cover and put back on the dvd drive.

Now use the eject botton, and try games and dvds4.gif.

If disc fails to spin, do process over again.

I've done this with one of my 360's with no problems.
The drive I used was an Hitachi 0059DJ.

Xbox 360 doesn't read any discs


Forget everything you have read.

There are 3 reasons why your drive has failed.

1 Most common is a weak or dead laser . Their cheap and not
hard to install yourself . I have never seen a dirty laser , this
is due to the high RPM of the drive 99% of the dust is swept
aside.

2 The spindle motor has seized up or to stiff to spin up.
You can easily determine this by turning it by hand or
listening for it to spin up when you place a disk in the
console.

3 The worm gear motor pin bearing is worn . This will
normalize make a whining sound when it trys to seek
game data from the disk

Remedy for problem # 1 is to replace the laser.

Remedy for problem # 2 is to replace the drive and put
the old drives P.C. board in the new drive.
and the same for problem # 3

if you have any Questions please ask before you rate this tip


Thanks
