Disk wont open or close

Hi yesterday my 360 broke. My DVD tray cant open or close. The ON/OFF botton keeps flashing the green light (Only in the middle og the big botton). The Xbox startes up as normal and the screen is showing the tray is going to open or close depending on the amount of times i hit the open close botton, but nothing happens.

I pulled out the disk inside when it crashed, the manuel way, as when open an PC disk.

Is there anyone who has the same problem and know what to do about it???

I have had the same problem recently... flashing green lights (only green) and DVD won't reject. Last night, the xbox 360 had the final straw... it wouldn't read anymore games. I can manually eject, but I think there is something worse going on. I think Going to call Microsoft today and see if I can send it back to get it fixed. I have never had a problem with a console before, but am not surprised with microsoft....

Well i had the same problem with my xbox is i opened the faceplate and pressed the button and if that doesnt work u will have to wiggle it around a little bit if it comes out what u need to do is take some WD-40 and spray some on a cloth or something to wipe the sides of the tray and the silver part of the tray and open and close it a couple of times if it opens and closes put the faceplate back on and it should open and close now

Xbox 360 power button light keeps flashing and disc tray does not open

Hi when the power button flashes red if you hold down the little round white button under the dvd tray and keep holding it down then press the open button for dvd then it will flash a number of lights write this down.
it will be flashing 1 2 3 or 4 lights so write it down then hold down the white button again and press the draw open button again and write down how many again.
do this 4 times all together and tell me what code it has given you then i can tell you exactly what the problem is

so for instance
you hold down the little white wireless button and keep holding it down then press the open button for the dvd tray and say 4 lights are flashin
so write down 4
then hold white button down again and press open button again
it may flash 4 again
then do it again and it may flash 2 lights
then again and it may flash 2 again

when you have gotten these 4 codes post me a message and tell me exactly what they tell you and in the correct order so it may look like this
4 lights flashing
2 lights flashing
1 light flashing
2 lights flashing

if you look at where the button is where you turn it on well you have the green light in the middle well around this is four outer lights that light up red their are 4 of these 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom either side of the green light, their the ones that flash green when its spinning rounf with green lights so write this code down then ill be able to tell you exactly what the fault is ok

let me know then i can assist you further ok

My xbox 360 wont load any games. No red lights but i cant get passed the menu after sighning in. just keeps telling me to open an close tray.

check around the disk tray for dust and use a vaccum cleaner to clean it, then use a wet cd lens cleaner with cleaning fluid a few time.
This should cure the problem but it might be that your drive is dead

Power cuts off

Might be a faulty power supply mate , when you turn the xbox on observe the power indicator on the power brick.
Green means its okay
Amber means the console is in standby
Red means the Brick has had it.

Try a friends power brick to see if it does the same.

Disk Tray

Hi! This is a very rare problem. I personally don't know how to fix it but if you have purchased your XBOX 360 in the last 3 years you will have free warranty on it. You may call Microsoft and they will help you troubleshoot and solve/fix your problem. They will explain how the process works once you call. Here is their number:

I hope you get your problem reslolved! :)

Cant play anything on it

I had the same problem, After googling for a few minutes I found the reset procedure for this player.

1. Turn it on.
2. Eject any disk you have in there and close the tray.
3. Hold down the "STOP" button on the player (not remote) until the green light flashes red and the system reboots.
4. Insert disk and enjoy.

This worked for me... mileage may vary.
