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 .

A disk is stuck in my Harmon Kardon player. The door will open and close and I can see the disk but cant' get it out.

turn on the unit and then tried to press the play button while the cd tray is in place. if doesn't work, unplug the dvd player then open the cover to access the internal part. look for a broken limit switch for cd tray mechanical assembly or check weather the cd not in proper place in the tray that is why an error occur.

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.

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.
