Re: tray not opening
You should definitely contact the seller and since he did not mention a partially broken drive. You could most likely get a partial refund for what you paid and in return buy another drive. But before you go off spending your money you can take apart the drive yourself and look for anything that doesn't belong or is out of place. The downside is that if you had a warranty it is now lost, and secondly 360's are a bit tough to get apart. This is just a suggestion of what I would do. Taking apart any electronics is always risky. Good luck, i know what it feels like to have a partially busted xbox.

There is no easy quick release to the Drive Door. You have to take the cover off of the Player and in the front of t he drive tray there is a small motor that has a small belt on it. If that belt breaks of falls off of the pulleys, you will hear the motor spinning and then it gives up. You can remove a plastic plate over the motor and pulley and manually spin the drive gear to open the Draw and remove the Disc. The belt shuold be available online.
In this case there is something physically blocking it .probably if you press teh eject button and force it out in the same time with some kinda tool ..it will give up and open ..but will do the same ..when you close it ..So you have to take it out from the case and see if it opens once loose..if it does it means it was forced in the place and most of them does that when they are pressed in ..The only other cause may be a loose belt ..If you think there is no other way ..try to open it and see if there is anything obvious.....but..I suggest to change it if it does not open when you help it with a blade on the tray and pushing the button ..
Disc tray belt that opens door has too much slack and need to be replaced,$2 item,belt size 1.9.To get tray open use your knuckles and tap on TOP of cabinet just above disc door while pushing open button.When open you will see the tiny belt that operates door to the right,use twizzers to remove an replace.Make sure new belt is seated properly in tracks if not tray won't move.
there is a tiny drive belt connecting a small motor to the loading tray.when they stretch,they run but do not open the door.if that is the case,putting your ear on the machine while hitting the eject button will enable you to hear the loading motor running inside.if you do not hear anything,it is a different problem
try putting a Blunt knife into the top of the dvd drawer, or where you can get a knife in.
And gently prise the drawer open whilst pressing eject on the Player.
Failing this, you will have to *****disconnect from the mains***** remove the screws on the rear of the casing, remove the top cover, and take out the DVD Disk.
Replace then plug back in, to check if the player is Ok.
**** Only remove the casing if you feel competant**** And if the player has no guarantee Or Warranty****
If it is powering up it is NOT the power supply that is at fault. If the door won't open it is likely the belt that moves the tray.
Unplug the unit and remove the screws holding the case shut.
On the left side you will see a metal plate that is the top hold down for the DVDs.
Remove the four screws and pull up on the plate. There will be some resistance as the top spinner is held in place to the spindle by a magnet.
Plug in the unit but DO NOT touch anything on the right side where the power comes in!
Power on the unit and hit the eject button. If the tray slides out now you are partly in luck.
With the tray ejected unplug the power.
Partially push in the tray and look along the front. You will see a small pulley (motor) and a large pulley. There will be a "rubber band" looking drive belt there. Likely that drive belt is dry rotted.
Getting one is the trick. I'd suggest rescuing one from an old CD/DVD drive from a computer.
I took a stake knife from the kitchen and pried open the tray door as I hit the eject button this got it to open, I then cycled eject and close, eject close a few times and this did the trick, I even played a DVD and that worked fine also. I had the problem with the tray not opening, and the display would read OPEN when I hit eject and I could hear it trying to open. So I wanted to make sure the tray wasn't just stuck or wedged before I took the system apart and looked for sripped out plastic gears or the belt being broken. GoodLuck firstname.lastname@example.org
If it trying to open and moves part of the way I don't think it is a mechanical failure such as broken cogs in the gears or a belt if belt driven. Sounds more like there is something blocking it.
WITH THE UNIT UNPLUGGED!!!!
Without hitting the open button. use the "emergeny" open hole in the front. Use a paperclip or something to poke in the hole. Hopefully you feel a little resistance and it will pop open. If not...
Using a flashlight (I suggest a LED flashlight), using the above method, grab the tray when it opens slightly. Extremely gently pull the tray out at the same time looking for an obstruction around the tray. If you hit any resistance at all stop pulling, we don't want to further damage the unit.
To get a case off: MAKE SURE THE UNIT IS UNPLUGGED AND WAIT A FEW MINUTES SO THE POWER SUPPLY IS FULLY IS DSCHARGED. Follow the outline of the case removing any screws that hold the case to the chassis. Some have the full case come off, some just a panel. Remove the neccessary screws and poke around being careful not to touch any springs or such. Look for debris that doesn't belong..
Hold on, I just looked at the maual and there are 5 trays. Does this happen to all of them? If all, it is a different story. If each one is driven independently the power supply might be "weak" and not sending sufficient voltage/current to the motors. This requires a meter to check...
