Re: disk tray

Sounds like your drive is in programing mode "hitachi" Hit the eject button 3 times(kinda fast) to get it to stay closed . If you didnt ever flash the drive then im not sure how it got stuck like this .. You may need to use the "slax disk" If its a 78, Or the flashing program to get it fixed . Check xboxscene for tutorials .

My 360 does not read disc, everytime i place disc in ,it says open tray

I fixed this for me today. I opened the tray, and took the disk out. Just inside in the middle there is a small disk that rotates. I just rotated it a little with my finger to get it moving. Once it started spinning the disk tray closed on its own. I then put a disk in and it started reading it. I guess the piece that moves the disk got stiff and just needed some assistance. Hope this helps.

My disk tray wont stay closed. and it is not reading disks

Well seems like it needs to be professionally repaired.
You could take to to someone who does things like that.
I live in Australia and only know of Australian Repair Places but if it is under warranty still aswell then that would be your first place to contact.

My xbox disc tray will not close

The tray component gears were probably stripped and the tray is now shifted vertically to high or low. Because when the tray moves back and forth the inside eye set up moves into the disc to hold it. Solution Have X-Box fix you problem for around $80 or less. Call 1-800-4MY-XBOX. They will send you a postage paid box. Also check to make sure nothing lose was in the xbox and also try to slam the door hard over and over as it try to slid in itself.

Xbox 360 disk tray wont stay shut

My 360 is/was having a similar 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.

I close the disk tray and immediately opens again and stays open

Hello,Do you have the original face place on? Some after markets will cause the open tray button to stick. Next check the button to see if it moves freely, when doing this, also try feeling the button if it bottoms out, check for any debris behind the button, If these don't change the situtation, then there is a sensor on the tray to tell if it's opened or closed, the sensor is either malfunctioning or something could be stuck to the bottom side of the tray from preventing the disk to load, The last thing would be to look into is there a forgien object stuck in your tray area like a piece of papper or plastic, I hope this will help resolve your problem, we look forward to hearing back from you and please have a nice day, Thanks

Disc Tray wont stay shut

A lot of people have this problem. Before you post, look around.

Anyway, I was able to call xbox 360 customer support. We did the troubleshooting but it still would not work, so they took my xbox 360 in for repairs. I would not try to fix it on your own because it might negate the warranty.

Cd tray on my 360 wont stay shut

either you will need it repaired or u can do it the cheap way and after the disc tray is shut put some tape over it and see if it will read it still. If not it will need to be repaired. It will only cost about $35 or free if you are still under warranty.
