XBOX360 disk tray keeps ejecting

This is likely the same issue occurring when the disk tray will not open either. Suspect your drive belt is worn and requires servicing. This is best done by an xbox servicing agent. Not too expensive. I have been suffering with a tray that will not open for over 2 years now, however, I am able to fix it simply by ensuring a disk is always left in the tray. It only fails to open if there is no disk in the tray. Even then, I can open it by lifting slightly with a paperclip.

How to fix the 3 red rings

Hello there

If you need to fix this problem or any other xbox problem like open/close tray error, disk read error, 2 lights error, all error messages, no display and son, if you want to fix this your self and save loads of cash on the way then you need a Good Xbox repair guide,

The Problem is caused by over heating and this causes the GPU and the CPU to lose connection with the motherboard, The heat actually melts the soldering that connects the chips to the motherboard.

The best advice i can give is as i say a really good xbox repair guide.

i use this website here to keep me updated with the best ones


Thanks for using Fixya

My son has an "Open Tray" error showing on his Xbox 360. He has unplugged everthing and plugged it back in, tried all of his disks...still not there something we can do to reset it or does it...

If you already opened the 360, you can buy a replacement drive of the same kind (i.e. Hitachi, Samsung, Lite-on) and swap the PCB boards from the drives. I did this to fix my Open Tray Error.

But if you have your warranty, just send it in.

Disk jammed in console

Remove the Faceplate by prying your fingernails into the bottom of your faceplate and pulling up. After removing the faceplate try ejecting the disk again. If it still does not eject. Straighten a paperclip and use the manual eject hole under the disk tray. Do not force anything. just push in the clip and pull the disk tray gently. Good luck. Make sure to remove your disk before sending it in for repairs because they will not send any disks back with the console.

Xbox doesnt read any disks

Similar problem here. Worked fine last night. This morning...every disc put in gets you a "unplayable" response. Does play DVDs though. Weird. Called xbox and they are sending us a box for repair. This is the second time sending it in. We had the ring of death crap before and had to send it in. It was in repair when Halo 3 came out. My son was having fits not being able to play it.

xbox is not on the top of my list as being a good, reliable gaming system.

Xbox 360 drive doesn't always open

Can you hear any gears grinding when you try and eject it? Has anyone ever pulled or pushed the tray in roughly?
