Turn off your console, unplug from the power source, remove the harddrive, reattach the harddrive, plug it back in, power on

I replaced my laser in my xbox 360 and now wont eject.


might sound daft but have you connected the cable properly from the logic board to the laser. i once forgot to connect this and it did the exact same thing.

the laser might be dead too which can cause the same fault.

there has been a LOT of lasers about at the minute which are dodgy so i would check all the cables and if it does not work after that contact your supplier.

i would also take a reading of the 'pots' and adjust them to 282 - search the net for a guide on how to do this.

I took my dvd apart to get some coins out & now it's unresponsive


Hi,

I am guessing you had a disc in the drive when you took it apart (or maybe the coins had something to do with it).

What you need to do is disassemble the Bluray drive again. With the top cover off of the Bluray drive, power on the PS3, then hit the eject button. The plastic guides should snap into the right position and then you can reassemble and it will work again.

Xbox 360 Console: Trey will not open or respond.


This happens WAAAAAAY to often with these consoles.

The culprit is a magnet inside of the dvd player that holds the tray from opening because the magnet is slightly too strong. The magnet is used to hold the dvd/games in place while they spin. The way to fix this is to buy a package of those hole reinforcment rings that you use to fix the holes in paper to keep inside of a binder. at staples they are called portable reinforcments.

What you have to do is place one or two fo these ring stickers over the magnet inside of the dvd player. If you open the dvd player you will know exactly what I'm talking about.

Xbox 360 disk spins while ejecting


i had this same problem, so i figured, "what the hell?" i might as well open the dvd drive up and clean it out. so i looked for how to video for taking apart my 360 and opening the dvd drive on you tube( this voids your warantee of course) and i cleaned all the dust out with compressed air and swabs dipped in alchohol. this worked for me so i hope it works for you.

1 redlight flashes clearly red at bottom right hand side of the power ring,and 2 other dim red lights are flashing,only the 1 in the bottom right is bright though.it happened 2weeks ago but i tryed it...


Do you get an error message on your tv screen? 1 flashing red light means there is a hardware failure such as your DVD drive hard drive, dashboard error ect. Not much can be done about this issue besides having microsoft fix it.

Listen to your dvd drive to see if it spins up or not when you put the disk in. If it does spin normally then you will be need a replacement laser.

If it does not spin correctly. The motor is stuck, sometimes if you open out the tray and stick something into the drive and give it a spin it will free the drive.

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.
