    Yeah, I have to blow on my disk opener thing, nad when it finally does open, it scratches my dscs to the point where I have to buy a new disc.

    Yah, I actually have to hit the top of my 360 to get it to open. It sucks, but until Microsoft updates it's warranty, there's nothing else I can do. (Other than wait for the red ring of death to set in)

    mine has the same problem. i posted a solution too.

    P.S. ring of death has a lifetime warrenty by microsoft. otherwise it's only a three year warrenty and if you take it in you WILL get a refurbished 360.

What you have to do is lightly push the chrome part of the tray in at different points. when it opens you need to pull it out an extra cm because when it was stuck it lost some of the umph. after you pulled it out all the way it shouldn't close automatically. then close lightly help it close by pushing it in as it closes. NOT HARD. then open and close again. should stop it.

Drop you entire Xbox 360 from a distance of around 2cm on a flat surface. It just gets jammed sometimes...

Send it back. microsoft is giving customers a 3 year extra warranty on the units. unless you did something to it, send it back. if you did something to it, you may need to clean it, oil it and make sure it is not getting stuck. if not, then get it repaired, but I am sure you can solve this without having to buy a new disk drive.

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.

Hi,the door for putting disc in wont open.every time i push the button there is noise comn from machine like its trying to open but it cant?


Hello,

This happens to me every now and then.
Here is how you can get around it:

Sometimes, you cannot open the disc tray on your Xbox 360 console by pressing the eject button. Any of the following things may cause this problem:
  • There is a hardware failure that affects the console, the disk drive, or the eject button.
  • A disc is lodged in the mechanism.
  • The clear protective plastic strip that is applied to the front of the tray to protect it during shipping is preventing the disc tray from opening.
To manually eject the disc from the disc tray, follow these steps:
  1. Unplug the power cord from your Xbox console. For more information about how to disconnect the power supply, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 906205 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906205/ ) How to connect and disconnect your Xbox 360 power supply
  2. Position your Xbox 360 console horizontally, as you would position a VCR or a stereo component.
  3. Remove the faceplate from your Xbox console. For more information about how to remove the console faceplate, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 907331 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907331/ ) How to attach or remove the faceplate on your Xbox 360 console
  4. Depending on the kind of disk drive that you have in your Xbox 360 console, you can use one of the following methods. Note In each case, make sure that you align the tool (a paper clip or stiff wire) to pass through another notch behind the hole on the console casing. Collapse this imageExpand this image906935.jpg
    • Method A: Insert a straightened paper clip or other small, stiff wire into the first hole from the left side of the disc tray. To release the disc tray, push the paper clip into the hole to press the manual eject mechanism. The manual eject mechanism is a white lever that is visible behind the console casing. The hole is located about 1.5 inches (approximately 4 centimeters) from the left edge of the disc tray.
    • Method B: Insert a straightened paper clip or other small, stiff wire into the second hole from the left side of the disc tray. Push the paper clip repeatedly into the hole to turn a gear to release the disc tray. The hole is located about 1.5 inches (approximately 4 centimeters) from the left edge of the disc tray.
    • Method C: Insert a straightened paper clip or other small, stiff wire into the hole that is directly under the "X3" logo on the Xbox 360 label on the disc tray to release the disc tray. The hole is located about 1 inch from the right edge of the disc tray.
  5. After you release the disc tray, the tray pops out slightly. You can pull the tray out the rest of the way to remove the disc. Note If you use method A or Method C in step 4, you may have to firmly press the disc eject mechanism to eject the disc tray.
  6. If you determine that a hardware failure has occurred that affects your Xbox console, contact Xbox Customer Support or submit a repair request for your Xbox 360 console.

Hope it helped.

The disc tray of my Xbox 360 console does not open


If the tray does not open when you press the eject button, try to manually open it. To do this:
  1. Unplug your Xbox console from the power source.
  2. Locate the manual release button on your Xbox console.

    For most Xbox consoles, the manual release button is located in a small pinhole to the left of the eject button under the disc tray.

    For some Xbox consoles, the manual release button is located under the disc tray. It can be under the "O" or the "B" in the word "XBOX" that appears on the tray.
  3. Insert a straightened paper clip or other small tool in the hole at an angle to the left. Gently push the paper clip to try to press the manual release button and partially open the disc tray. This may take several tries. Typically, a thin paper clip works better than a thick paper clip.

    If you insert the paperclip in the hole and find an obstacle, this indicates that your Xbox console's manual release button is located in a different area of the console. Look under the "O" or the "B" in the word "XBOX" that appears on the tray. If this is the case, insert the paperclip under the "O" as outlined in step C. If you find an obstacle, insert the paperclip under the letter "B”. The manual release button is located in one of these three locations.
  4. After the disc tray partially opens, pull the tray with your fingers to fully open the tray
