SOURCE: Xbox 360 disk tray wont stay shut

My 360 is/was having a similar problem...my 360 would say "reading disc" then "open tray". Well since my system is only about 8 months old...I opted to send it in for repair. Its under warranty. My system is in route to be fixed as we speak. I would advise you to get yours registered too.

SOURCE: I turn on my xbox 360 and it says open tray and wont read disc

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.

SOURCE: open tray message when closed

This is more than likely your laser that is dead and its possibly a samsung or hitatchi drive, be careful when buying a new laser because there is a lot of dodgy ones around at the minute which can damage your machine or at the very least will be inferior and not last long.

It could also be the logic board or the drive belt too, if the logic board is faulty no matter how many lasers you try it will do the same, the fix is to replace the logic board.

if its the drive belt well this is very easy to try and is what id try first, open your 360 tray and look inside the 360 you should be able to see the drive belt, make sure its attached properly and then take this out. replace it with a new one and see if this recifies your problems.

SOMETIMES if a drive belt is stretched it will not close properly and then a fault like yours will occur. its all a matter of eliminations. Drive belts can be found on ebay.

The disk tray will not open


Try slowly opening it with a flathead screwdriver. Get the tray open enough to put ur pinky in and try to remove any disk(s) that are in there. Plug it in and turn it on. If the tray closes ur system should be ok and try to open it with the button. If no good. Then try agian, but this time slowly open it all or most the way, then plug it in and let the drawer close and see if the button works to open and close it.

This is ussaly caused by a jam from either a incorrectly inserted disk and it jammed the tray. Or the gearing that is connected to the motors jamed up and the tray needed to be moved out to unlock the jam.
Closing the tray with ur hand and not pressing the button to close it also could of caused this problem

Why does my disk tray not close? I put a disk on it, press the open/close button, and 3 seconds later it opens by itself...how do I fix this?


Hi,
Its possible that the tray has slipped a tooth on the gear on which it runs. Try opening up the disk player and removing the tray, then replace it after turning the drive gear which ejects the tray, back one or two teeth.

Best wishes,

360 disk tray


What I did was took apart my Xbox and put the disc tray back on the tracks, carefully lifting it over the circle thing in the middle. When I lay my Box down horizontally, it opens and closes fine.
