Xbox 360 tray taking 5 or 6 times to open

You will probably need a new DVD drive. If you are experienced with disassembly, you could try cleaning out the drive gears in the DVD drive. If you have a game stuck inside of the drive, there is a small hole in front of the drive, behind the faceplate, that will accept a straightened paperclip and manually drives the tray gears,

Xbox tray is off gears and stays open howe to fix?

It's very difficult to change the door on the XBox without causing any damage. I recommend you have it send to someone who professionally knows how to assemble it correctly. I know fixes this sort of problems, they did something similar on my system and cleaned it all out. Give them a try!

A game is stuck in the tray. The green light is

There is a way to manually remove it. First you will want to unplug the power for a few minutes to let your Xbox reset. Re-attach the power cord and see if you can now eject your DVD. If that did not work turn the power off and unplug it. Remove the faceplate on you Xbox console. You will need a thick paper clip or something similar. Straighten one end of it out. With the faceplate removed you will see 2 small holes right underneath the DVD player and one hole to the right.
Since Microsoft decided to use 3 different DVD drives the procedure will vary. If you have a Samsung or Toshiba drive use the small hole on the right. Should be right underneath the X on the DVD drive faceplate. Push your straightened paper clip in the hole until you feel it hit the gear. The gear needs to be spun from left to right. Poke around until you find it then push in gently until you feel it move. You will see the tray start to move out.
For Hitatchi DVD drives go for the first hole on the left. Beng DVD drives will use the middle hole. This requires the most pressure to get the gear to turn. You will see the tray start to move take your time and do not push too hard in case you are missing the correct spot. Once the tray starts to eject you can pull on it slightly to help it open. You should now be able to remove your Game.

My xbox disc tray will not close

The tray component gears were probably stripped and the tray is now shifted vertically to high or low. Because when the tray moves back and forth the inside eye set up moves into the disc to hold it. Solution Have X-Box fix you problem for around $80 or less. Call 1-800-4MY-XBOX. They will send you a postage paid box. Also check to make sure nothing lose was in the xbox and also try to slam the door hard over and over as it try to slid in itself.

Xbox 360's disk tray will not open

The motor that opens the drive tray could be bad or there could be something stuck in the gears. You may have to take the Xbox apart and pull out the drive and then take it apart to see if there is anything stuck in there.
