Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

Disc tray Hi, I was playing my XBOX 360 last night and it suddenly started making all sorts of loud noises, like it was about to take off. I left it to cool off and tried it again this morning. Now the disc tray keeps opening, with or without a disc in it. The light on the power button in the top right hand corner is flashing yellow. Please help me fix my life-support machine before it's too late. Regards David

    The same exact thing happened to my 360 elite, it made terrible noises so I turned it off. And now the disc tray will not close. The only difference I have is that I do not have a yellow flashing light. Normal green lights is what I am getting.

    I have somethins similar. At first we started hearing strange noises whenever we would put a disk in. Sometimes the noises could stop, other times it would say "unreadable disk." Now the drive won't stay closed.

Not entirely sure but maybe the disk drive bricked, though I wouldn't replace it without looking into it more.  But it would make sense consider the noises.  Was there anything attached to the disc or was the disc damaged after this incident?

SOURCE: Disc Tray.

From what I no when the 360's light indicated flashes yellow it means it's overheated, try letting cool down.  I have had so many problems with my 360 and the cdrom drive is number 1.  When my drive started making all that noise i almost started to cry.  What i did was called the Xbox Helpdesk and they fixed the problem right away.  Call the Xbox Helpdesk at this number: 1-800-469-9269 (This munber will get you through faster).  if you ahve any more questions just let me know....
