I have a problem with the tray sticking on my CD player. The tray won't close when I press the "Open/Close" button. I had this problem several months ago, and I got it repaired under warranty (I think they replace the tray or the tray mechanism) and then it worked OK for several months. But now it is doing the same thing all over again (tray won't close). If I spray a small amount of lubricant onto the sprocket mechanism underneath the tray, that fixes the problem but only temporarily. What can I do to fix the problem permanently?

Re: Tray Sticking on CD Player
Reoccurring tray problems are a paim. It mauy be a spot of oil or grease on the tray motorbelt, or the wrong belt fitted, and or dry failing bubricant to opening cam and sliders. Best approach is to strip and clean everything, lube only with white plastic grease, and sparingly. I use graphic powder on tray sliders, be careful not to get lubricants on drive belts. try next size down belt also, or be sure the belt fitted is 2.0 mm crosssectional area

Often the tray is powered by a rubber belt. If the latter breaks or slips the try will not open/close. The motor will work and tell the electronics that all is well because it has done its job but it really hasn't since the tray is inert!
Hi friend. Try this: Press the power button on the Toshiba DVD player remote. Press the
"Open/Close" button to eject the disc tray. Remove any disc that might
be on the tray before proceeding. Press the following keys on the remote in this order: 2,4,0,3,9,6,0. Press the "9" key on the remote. Press the "Open/Close" button to close the disc tray. Press the power button to turn the Toshiba DVD player on.
1. Power on the DVD player 2. Press the Open/close button on your remote control to open the drive tray and remove any disk 3. Press 2403960 4. Press 9 for multi-region playback. DO NOT Press Enter button on your remote control 5. You will see a 9 (region-free) on the TV (right corner) 6. Press the Open/close button on your remote control to close the drive tray 7. Power off the DVD player 8. Power on the DVD player and it is region free.
The gears have probably come out of sync, meaning the tray is riding on the limit switch. You need to remove the deck, dismantle and re-sync the drawer mech. Check the limit switch isnt bent, it's quite flimsy
Do you mean the CD tray won't stay closed? If so check the simple things first. The button that you push to open and close the tray is actually a lever that pushes a much smaller button below it. Make sure that your eject button is not stuck down for some reason. Check your cd tray and the bay to make sure nothing got inside that is preventing the cd tray from closing all the way. I believe if something gets in the way the tray will automatically re-open. You can also take some compressed air and blow out the cd tray to remove any debris that may be blocking the tray from closing.
If none of the above simple steps work I believe it boils down to 2 things. 1. An object inside the case or tray that is preventing it from closing all the way or...
2. The eject button is stuck down.
If your comfortable with it you can take apart your xbox case and remove your CD/DVD player and ensure the button works properly. You can do a search on this site or youtube for instructions on how to take the case apart if needed. Once the case is apart the CD/DVD player is easily removed. You will then notice that the switch you press on the outside of the Xbox to open and close the CD/DVD tray is actually a lever that presses a much smaller switch directly on the front of the CD/DVD unit. You can then test your eject switch directly by pressing the button directly with a ball point pen or a pin. If the bay does not open and close properly at this point it may be necessary to replace the CD/DVD player and I do not know if it can be replaced or not. Hope this helps.
