SOURCE: can't open disc tray
Alot of the xbox tray issues can be fixed by taking the box apart and bending the lid on the rom drive very slightly. It seems to be associated with the Samsung drives. Also if any one has tried hacking the box and made a mistake, the drive could of been bricked during the flashing process. Good Luck

SOURCE: xbox 360 tray doesn't open
I have had 1 other person talk to me about this and I had him bring me his 360 to look at and what I found was that his 360 overheated and it actually warped the plastic around the tray. I changed his tray sold him a usb cooling unit and he was been good ever since. When it sticks there is not a lot that can be done other than change the tray. Not an expensive fix but you will have to crack the case to change it. If you have any warranty left cracking the case will void it. If you have any warranty left call microsoft and they will change it for you. If you are out of warranty you can change it yourself if you feel comfortable with it and if you don't I would take it to a game store (GameStop for example) and they can change it for you. The tray unit runs probably about 40.00 and they can change it for probably about 30.00 (it is about a 20 minute job so I would not pay more than that).

I have had this happen about 3 times. The first time was when i figured out how to fix it. The 2nd and 3rd were temporary.(Just needed to be turned off for a moment) You need to shut the console off for atleast 15 minutes 10 at the lowest with everthing unplugged. I mean the hard drive, memory unit, and all cables, and adapters. Then after 10-15 minutes plug everything in and DON'T PRESS the BUTTONS ON THE XBOX OR THE CONTROLLERS. Press the button to open the tray and take out the game or dvd and put in a different one. If this doesn't work do it all over again and then put in a different game or dvd not the previous ones and turn on the console the same but then a soon as you get the disc in and closed in shut it off then open the tray and wait till you are at the main menu go into any program so you can't see it is reading and close the tray. If that doesn't work contact the xbox support line. Really hope this works for you.
