My xbox disc drive keeps opening and closeing and wont let me play games


you will need to open this drive and clean the drive belt, or the tracks the tray use as they may be gummed up and dirty.
Open tray error is common, even more so on Samsung drives.

To fix this you usually really need to open your xbox360 so you can get to the disk drive so you can open it for a self-service. BUT first try to fix it with a laser cleaning kit, they don't cost much to purchase and you can get them from most electronic shops and also eBay.

If a cleaning kit did not work, then the problem may be your tracks, the disk spin head or the belt that moves the tray (drive belt).

Once you have your xbox360 opened (lots of good video guides on YouTube on how to open the xbox360) you will have to open your disk drive.

When its open, clean the left and right tracks, they can get gummed up with dust, and even tar if the unit is from a smokers home, when the tracks are dirty, it can stop the tray going in all the way then games don't play. Also if the spin head is dirty (the plate the disk sits on to spin the disk) then it does not grip the disk fully and thus does not spin at full speed, giving you read error. Finally the belt inside the drive can be removed and can be boiled in water for a minute or to, this cleans it and brings it back to its original shape, this helps the belt regain lost grip and can also fix this error your having, but belt problems are more for Samsung drives.

You should use rubbing alcohol to clean the internal components of your drive without causing any damage, you could even clean the laser yourself using a high quality kitchen roll sheet or micro fiber cloth, with rubbing alcohol and gently pass it over the lens to clean it. Once you have done all this, close everything back up and see if the problem is gone.

If your still having problems then chances are you need a new laser for your drive.

Old xbox360 disc tray wont close at all


open it up ( very carefully) and check to see if the disk tray end is still attached or alligned to the plastic gears that eject the tray. if so check the rubber band to make sure it has not broke or streched.

Drawers wont open or close.


I will assume you are talking about the CD/DVD drive drawer.

Get a large paper clip. unbend it part way and use the straight end to push the drawer out using the little hole located on the front of your drive.

You may have a stuck disk in the drive.

My xbox360 wont play any disk


I had a problem like this a few days ago, my 360 had problems reading my disks. I ended up opening it up and cleaning the laser in the dvd drive. After that it played fine, if that doesn't work you might need a new dvd drive.

My xbox 360 cd drive keeps on opening and closing.


Your having a dvd drive problem Im taking a guess but i have fixed many like this before. What you need to do is take your xbox360 apart. You can find a video how to do this on our site http://www.xboxmodshop.com next you want to remove your dvd drive take out the four screws on the bottom and remove the top cover. Now make sure your looking at the spindle where the game rest in the middle of your spindle you will normally find two magnets, but in your case your probably wont. Yours are probably stuck to the top of your drive cover. You need to remove them and superglue or epoxy them back in the middle of your spindle.After completely dry put everything back together it should play normal.I recommend a inter-cooler so this wont happen again.

Xbox360 drive wont close


It is probable that the cd drive motor is fryed. If it is still in warranty you should return it.
