Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Disk slot My mom bought my brother a used Xbox 360 from ebay. The disk slot won't open- you can hear it click and see it slide out just a few millimeters, but it seems jammed. We need to get it repaired before christmas and don't want to send it away to be fixed or buy a new one.

Re: Disk slot

Hi Nicknameyea,

Most repair shops will have the XBOX back to you within 2 weeks or less. It is in their best interest and yours to get it done quickly. I run a repair shop and we succeed at getting Video game consoles repaired and out within 24 hours of the time we recieve them. Also, it is important, if you live in the USA, to use the United States Post office for Delivery. FedEx, UPS, DHL take twice as long or longer when moving ground shipments. USPS priority mail will cross USA in 2 days. So if yoiu used my shop and used USPS priority mail, and we will too, you looking at the Xbox being away for only 1 week.

Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen, then Click on "Video Game Consoles" . Pick a well rated Video Game console repair shop that can turn it around fast for you at a price you can handle.

What do you do when your xbox won't read disks?

The main problem might be a big problem with the disk tray. There might be an faulty wire that has lost connection and if your disk wont event turn on, there might be a problem with the power supply that supplies the cd tray. If the disk opens and closes but doesnt read and wont say tray is in and keeps saying open tray, there might be a small fracture on some of the wires or there is something wrong with the motherboard of the xbox 360. The best way is to buy the warrenty now and send it to the xbox 360.

When load a disk xbox 360 makes a clicking noise and says open tray on the screen

Something is most likely wrong with your disc tray.

Try a new disc, and if the problem persists, I would call xbox support.

As soon as i turn on my 360 the disk tray light wont stop blinking and disks wont read

Listen close and see if you hear the tray motor running. If you do then, most likely, the belt and pulleys that move the disk tray are dirty. Which might also explain not being able to read disks. Here's what to do: Pull the face plate off of the 360. This will NOT void your warranty. Beneath the disc tray (look under and "into" the tray) you should see a gear wheel on your left side. Push eject. Use a toothpick (or similar object) to turn that gear from left to right. Keep turning and the tray should pop open. Unplug (WITHOUT turning off) the 360. Pull the disk tray to full extention and look through the slot in the center of it. You'll see the belt and pulleys. Tweeze the belt out small pulley first clean the belt & pullies w/alcohol. Put belt on big pulley first. Then run a lens cleaner disk when you get it opening again.

Xbox 360 thinks game is dvd

your laser is going out or something, or its dirty. mine was doing this to me. eventually it would not see the disc at all and kept saying open tray. i bought a philips laser lens cleaner for around 8 bucks and its helped me out so far. from what i've read though, this is only a temporary solution and will require service eventually.

Their are four ribbon cables inside one for the laser, one to open, one to spin the disk and one for power sometimes one of these might come lose. Or maybe even the laser has gone out but try in that order cables first, once the disk drive is opened then check for the laser turning on without starring directly into it you should see a red light of course. A new laser goes from 15 to 40 bucks depending on the type of drive you have check ebay first.

I do believe its a problem with the disk. The disk may not be scratched or anything but it could possibly something internally wrong with it. I'd take the disk back and exchange it. Hope this helped! Have a great day!
