The ROM drive has failed. you will have to install a new drive or repair the components within this ROM.

Door will not open


make sure the drive is not reading a disk, because if its spinning it can break when you do this process.

look for a hole in the front of the drive, get a paper clip and stick it in there all the way, the tray will now eject or if its a slot loading drive the cd will eject

Xbox 360 - Stuck or sticking tray fix!


If your Xbox 360 DVD drive won’t eject it can be a very simple fix.

The Samsung drive is almost always a very simple fix, if you have another drive, it may be more difficult.

To identify your drive, follow this guide:

• Remove the faceplate by firmly grasping the opening for the USB ports and pulling.
• Underneath the DVD tray there should be a small hole.
• Look at the wires in the hole to identify which drive type you have.

Red and Black Wires = Samsung Drive
Yellow Wires = LiteOn Drive
White Wires = BenQ Drive
No Wires = Hitachi Drive


SAMSUNG:

It is very common for a Samsung drive to not eject. It’s a very simple fix for this!

1. Power on your Xbox 360
2. Press the eject button
3. When the Xbox 360 “tries” to eject, just simply push in on the tray cover.

That should make it eject!

If it does not, please follow the guide for the other drives below:

This requires you to disassemble your Xbox 360. IF you don’t know how, look it up on google, there are plenty of guides.

Then follow these steps:

1. Remove your Xbox 360 DVD drive from the Xbox 360
2. Turn over and remove the four screws securing the drive (6 screws if it’s a Hitachi)
3. Remove the top cover of the DVD drive.
4. Put the drive back in the Xbox 360, connect the wires, and power on your Xbox 360.
5. Once the 360 powers on, eject the drive. Most of the time it should eject normally. If it doesn’t you may have to force it.
6. Unplug the Xbox 360. If you turn it off with the power button the tray will close first, we need it open.
7. Near the front of the drive, you should now be able to see and access a small rubber band that was hidden by the tray.
8. Remove the band, lubricate and replace.
9. Replace the top cover and hook up and test.
10. If that doesn’t work, you may need a new rubber band. If you can get one of the right size, replace and test.

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.

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.

here is a tutorial video link:

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.
