SOURCE: Xbox 360 disk tray wont stay shut

My 360 is/was having a similar problem...my 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.

Blinking green light


The blinking green light is because your 360 is not understanding that the disc tray is closed. That's also the reason that the tray comes back open. It's not getting fully closed. Next time you insert a gamepush the drive closed with your hand. You'll know the drive is closed when the light stops blinking.

Center green light on power button blinks nonstop, the disk slot won't open, but the tv says it is trying to open then close etc. just before this problem two of the 4 red lights would come on and the game...


You have the red ring of doom/death, this is when the hard drive crashes.
There is no other solutions except replacing the hard drive or buying a new xbox.
There are some solutions if you google it or look it up in youtube. But they are only for a limited time

Re: Blinking green light/won't detect disk drive


If you still have a warrenty sticker call up Microsoft and tell them that your Xbox 360 has overheated, and tell them your serial code. They will tell you if your warrenty is expired, if it's not they will ask you where you live then pick up your Xbox 360 and fix it for free. If your warrenty has expired try this. Power off the Xbox 360 and when it is off press the eject button, it might open they tray. Or try opening your Xbox 360 and remove the disk drives cables from the disk drive and the motherboard and put it back together, you should never try the towel trick really, although it works it can also give your Xbox 360 3 red lights then you have to buy X-clamps and theormo paste, just do the X-clamps and theormo paste when you get one red light. I have had two Xbox 360's, when I did the towel trick it burnt the GPU, the other one a little componante came loose, sorry for my spelling. Hope this helps =D

XBOX 360 green light flashing....


Its the drive. Most of the problems with the drive not opening is the belt slipping inside. If you can find a new belt for the motor then change it. Otherwise I would Swap out the board to the new drive and it should solve your problem.

My Tray Door popped open after two red lights shut down console and won't close!


Here is a great page that has a step by step process for opening your unit. (they also sell parts and mod equipment)

http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/Xbox-360-Disassembly.htm

You may need a new drive, but I doubt it. After you get the Xbox open, peel off the silver tape thats on the bottom front of the DVD player, unplug the 2 connections, and lift it out. Turn the player upside down and remove the 4 screws, flip it back over and make sure that the try is lined up correctly with the mechinism.

I hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!
