My xbox wont stay shut

Earlier today my xbox was working fine and now it wont stay shut. Every time i put in a game or movie or just try shutting it with no disk, it closes but opens right back up... When i turn off my xbox it just closes, shuts down, and then opens back up even when the powers off. Can anyone help me?

Whenever I close my disk tray the tray closes and just shuts off, then turns right back on. Also When I turn my Xbox on the power button light is constantly flashing, saying that the tray is closing or opening, does this mean the tray is broken? Any suggestions. I have just a regular Xbox 360.

Console turns on but wont read the disc. everything else works ok, message comes up saying reading then changes to open the drawer.

I have this problem after searching this fault on the net I found it to be the Lens sticking on the rails if the Xbox isn't shut down properly the lens assembly stays at the far end of it's track out of reach of DVDs & Games. I don't recommend this if your not handy with electronic devices or it's under warrenty but search the net for the fix & pull it apart, eventualy you'll get to the drive open it & thers the problem. just push it back into place put it all back togeather try it & shut it down properly each time & it should work mine still does

My door will not stay shut to play a game what is ps2 door was not opening so we thought we fixed it but now it wont stay shut . all lights are on just wont stay shut to even read/play any games...

the tray doesnt stay in. does your ps2 sit on its side where the tray is sideways, or is it straight up? i think you should try rotating it to a point where it should stay shut.

Every time i load a game the tray wont stay shut on my 360

try removing the face on your xbox 360. sometimes the tray catches the face when closing. the face pops right off. if the problem accurs while the face is off then your driver needs to be repaired.

My xbox won't read games when i put in a game the xbox turns on and works fine but wont read the games or movies i put in???

I had this problem on my first Xbox. In my case it was caused by the disk reader burning out. Call Xbox customer support, you should be able to send it in for a replacement.

Disc Tray wont stay shut

A lot of people have this problem. Before you post, look around.

Anyway, I was able to call xbox 360 customer support. We did the troubleshooting but it still would not work, so they took my xbox 360 in for repairs. I would not try to fix it on your own because it might negate the warranty.

Check the disk. if it has a bis ring arond the disk it is screwed. this is caused by moving the xbox before the disk has stopped spinning.

Xbox 360 tray wont stay shut

I just solved this problem, very simple actually. Possibly can happen when the drive WILL close, but then loud noise as it tries to spin the disc up. Open the drive up (4 little screws on the bottom) and lift the lid up. If you look on the top white magnet spinner, the bottom side of the magnet system broke off of the disc motor. It will look like a little metal ring stuck to the white spinner thing whatever it's called. I popped that off and examined it, then used some krazy glue to stick it back on the motor spindle and it's away and going now. The reason the drive will not close, is because when the little magnet first breaks off it can get misaligned then when it tries to shut it gets in the way. The MAY be the cause to the problem. I fixed this issue today with mine, hitachi drive.

Tray wont stay shut

Listen to it when you put a disk in, does it sound like it is still trying to load?

More than likely it is not loading completely. The loading mechanism is out of time. Jumped a tooth on the loading gear.

Need to be re timed.
