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.

This problem is caused by a loose drive belt in the eject mechanism, you need to open the ps2 and replace the drive belt...
Take off the top cover, then take off the cover from the top of the dvd drive mech... then carefully remove the disc tray and you should see the belt near the front. Replace that belt and it should work fine again
On a couple of rare occasions the drive motor has been found to be faulty, but usually replacing the belt will fix it
I found a solution that works for me after a long period of time with
Get an air spray canister (just compressed air),
open your Xbox's game tray, take the disc out, then spray the air along
the tray, moving side to side inside the Xbox. You may want to spray
into the vents, too, just to be sure.
This worked for me, and it
was the only thing that worked for me. I had already tried hitting the
console with the controller (gently), and doing the stuff Microsoft
If that doesn't work, you could try gently
knocking the top of the Xbox with your conroller, when you put the disc
in, as I've heard that works for some people.
Another thing that
works for some people is taking the disc out, closing the tray, then
when it goes to Open Tray, open the tray, put the disc back in and then
closing the tray again.
If you correctly meant PS3 then there is actually no tray to open. The discs slide in and out of the slot.
If you instead were talking about a 360, since you posted in that section, here is a tip. When you hit the eject button you will likely here a bit of a "thunk" sound. Once you hear that ball your fist and hit the top of the Xbox just above the DVD drive. This should cause the tray to slide open.
Listen close and see if you hear the tray motor running. If you do then, most likely, the belt and pulleys that move the disk tray are dirty. Which might also explain not being able to read disks. Here's what to do: Pull the face plate off of the 360. This will NOT void your warranty. Beneath the disc tray (look under and "into" the tray) you should see a gear wheel on your left side. Push eject. Use a toothpick (or similar object) to turn that gear from left to right. Keep turning and the tray should pop open. Unplug (WITHOUT turning off) the 360. Pull the disk tray to full extention and look through the slot in the center of it. You'll see the belt and pulleys. Tweeze the belt out small pulley first clean the belt & pullies w/alcohol. Put belt on big pulley first. Then run a lens cleaner disk when you get it opening again.
It sounds like u drive belt on the drive is worn you may find it cheaper to get a new drive and install that but dont forget to make sure u get the key of the drive there is program called jungle flash to swap over the drive and flash the new drive so it picks it up as a the correct drive
Most likely it is your laser lense is dirty. Crack the case get in to the DVD drive open it. While in there give it a general cleaning then clean the laser lense with glass cleaner and a q-tip. Three other things to check. There are three motors in there one slides the tray in and out when you hit the eject button (small hole lower left of metal box under drive) another moves the laser when the tray moves back in you should see the laser move slightly and the lense bob up and down and light up, third is the spinner motor put and disc in the tray and close the tray the disc should spin up if it doesn't then the motor is bad. If all these things have work ok put it back together and test it out.
