Re: Xbox Halo editon

That works sometimes.but most the time the magnet that connects doen through the tray to spin the cd gets pressed down. how you have to fix that is by taking it apart.First you have to take the lid off and the metal case over top of the cd tray.but on the top lid there is a big metal piece thats suppose to protect tvs and things from getting interference but everytime ive had this problem i always yank that off.its kinda hard to get off but dont worry you wont break anything.So anyways after you pull the metal from on top of the cd tray you need to bend that up. the only bad thing about this is it has to be perfect.if its bent to much or not bent enough it will not eject.the easiest way to do it is to put a big bend and then put it back on and press it down slowly until the tray pops out. after you get that put it back together and try not to put to much pressure on the top of the box.      Or quick solution go buy a new cd tray top from a game tech near you.

You can try manually ejecting it by using a paper clip and poking it in the small hole underneath the tray.  Keep pressing it and see if you can pull it out.  After that try the eject button again.

My xbox 360 isnt reading my halo reach game

Does it show the disk when you load it. Like is it just saying tray open. What model 360 do you have. I know if you have the ones without a hard drive you cant play certain parts of the game. Like multiplayer. I think even the campaign, but I could be wrong. If your xbox is saying tray open when you load the game. Your probably getting hardware error. Happened to my old one. If you have other games try and load them. See if this is only happening with Halo Reach.

Loose disc tray

well, when you opened the tray with a paperclip, it probably jacked up the reading system. The you pushed it in manually. This will totally ruin the system. Try contacting Microsoft.

Wont read disc,instead says open tray

Try turning the xbox on and off. Try removing the power from the xbox and plugging it back in. Try other discs and see if it works. Try doing updates on your xbox360 and see if that fixes the problem. That fixed mine with Halo.

Halo 3 disc problems

Microsoft has confirmed that if you have either the heroic or the legendary package that these discs are malfunctioned. I suggest you exchange it from the retailer you bought it from or call in microsoft and they ship you another halo 3 free of charge.
