My 360 has the open tray problem

take the tray apart and underneath the laser etc there are 2 small hex/allen screws which the laser's rails are resting on. one or both have probably loosened up during use so just need tightening. when i did it one was pretty solid and other was loose ish. give them a lil quarter turn then test it while its still open. just make sure you dont tighten it too much and you can just make tiny adjustments till the lasers back in the right place. and dont turn the xbox on without the drive connected cuz i hear that gets you banned from xbox live. sorry if this is confusing cuz im not that great at explaining things lol. hope it helped:D

Ex-s770 start to turn on then turns off

hi the problem is going to be with the lense motor jaming and not letting the lense come out all the way to switch the camera on to take pictures what should happen is the lense should come out all the way the go in just a little bit so that it focuses it does this so that it resets the lense for when the screen comes on.
If the camera has been put down with the lense out and any pressure has been put on it and put the lense out of line then this will cause the problem your having.
But the even bigger problem is their is no way of repairing it as most shops dont repair the smaller digital cameras so the chances of getting someone to look at it is a bit remote.
The only thing you could try is when the lense comes out try and pull it gently a bit further and see if that lines it back up as their a sensor on it so that when the lense comes out it switches the camera into the mode to take pictures but you can acess the pictures with the lense in so you know the batterys fine and that the circuit board is also fine.
It just the lense i know you cant get replacement parts for your make and model the only spares you can get is batt and cards so gently pull the lense if you can you cant damage it anymore than it is anyway can you.
Let me know how you get on ok.
