What do I do it will not Except my games it just kicks them out


It looks like something is keeping the tray from closing all the way or the eject button is somehow being pressed when it closes. Open the tray and get a flash light to look inside to see if there is anything in there that shouldnt be (like maybe a disc that came loose from the tray and is still inside the xbox). If it looks all clear try holding down the eject button when putting the disc in. If that doesnt work try opening and closing it without a disc in. If it stays closed without a disc open and close it a couple times to be sure then try putting the disc in again. If that doesnt work try standing the xbox up on its side and putting the disc in.

The next step I would try is replacing the disc drive. This of course will void your warranty if you do it yourself I would suggest requesting repair from Microsoft if it is in warranty (http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-360/repair/repair-process)

If it is not in warranty try replacing the disc drive (This is pretty complicated. I have done it and honestly wouldnt suggest doing it yourself unless you are very familiar with disassembling and resembling electronics.) Here are instructions http://hardandsoftgaming.wordpress.com/2011/03/12/replacing-a-faulty-xbox-360-dvd-drive-firmware-flash-or-circuit-board-transplant/

If you are not comfortably with doing this yourself find a local repair shop.

Xbox 360 disk tray wont stay shut


My 360 is/was having a similar problem...my 360 would say "reading disc" then "open tray". Well since my system is only about 8 months old...I opted to send it in for repair. Its under warranty. My system is in route to be fixed as we speak. I would advise you to get yours registered too.

Dvd tray does not stay closed when you insert a disc it closes for a little bit then reopens


Hello.

There is either something that prevents the DVD tray from closing, make sure to insert the disc fully in the circle or if it isnt that the rubber belt in the DVD-drive is stretched out and not strong enough to close the tray completely when a disc is inserted, this is a known issue of these drives and often causes the drives not to open properly as well.

You can solve this either by replacing the belt or you can do a little trick which fixes the drive in 90% of the case.
How to do this is shown here: http://xbox-experts.com/e/tutorial.php?n=dvdopentray

I hope this helps.

Kind Regards,

Xbox does not read discs.


Getting to the dashboard screen is a good thing but still cannot rule out a bad circuit board or power supply. All the symptoms point to a bad DVD drive but the opening/closing by itself do indicate a problem with the microprocessor. Can you turn the power on and off with the small button?? If not, would definitely suspect bad board.
