If the unit is within the warranty period of one year. Then you can call 1-800-4my-xbox and request that Microsoft repair it. They will ship you a box and then ship back a replacement unit. If you call and the repair does not fall under their warranty then you can either send it in to Microsoft who will collect your credit card info and bill you to repair it. (Usually around 99 USD, plus shipping) or you can purchase a new "Arcade: version for 129.99 and attach your hard drive to that to continue playing. Some local repair shops may be able to fix it if it is out of warranty.

Now if you opt to get a new one, DO NOT throw the old unit away. Collect the cables and power supply and the unit and take it to your local Gamestop store who will issue you a credit for some money on your old system. It wont be much but it is better than tossing it away.

Dvd is stuck in toshiba regza built in dvd player. How can I manually remove it? Thanks

Ok, IF there is a small hole ion the tray of the DVD then the insertion of a piece of wire, say a straightened paper clip, will open the tray, you insert the wire and then push it in firmly, and keep pushing until it clicks and pops open. If there is NO hole, then one must open up the entire unit and locate the ejection motor and look for the spiral drive gear and wind it out by hand.

When we put disc in tray keeps popping out and saying close tray.

There is a magnet inside the DVD drive that has dislodged and is now stuck to the top of the drive, causing the tray to keep popping out.

To fix this yourself, you're going to need to open your xbox, open the DVD drive, and glue that little magnet back in its place.

Follow this guide to do it.
