If you push the tray closed and it simply springs back out, then the internal latch is either jambed open or broken off. Open a paperclip and push an end into the black hole you see on the door bezel. push gently in the hole, you feel the clip contact the release mechanism. You may have to push on it several times to see if it can be dislodged (if it's not broken), if the door is still popping open, you may have to change out your drive.

My xbox 360 tray wont stay close how do i fix it


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.

Cd tray will not stay closed it opens as soon as you close it


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, 3 possibilities:
  • tray is not really reaching closed position, belt is loose/worn out (most likely), replacement required;
  • dirt on the laser/optics, false reading, the CD is thinking it has a CD inserted and when it can not read, it ejects. Clean with a CD disc cleaner (likely);
  • virus/malicious software (a possibility), scan/clean.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Cd/dvd drive won't stay shut


I have the dv9000z. If I do NOT push the DVD drive tray all the way in until it CLICKS shut, then it OPENS again after 1-2 seconds. This is normal. I have found that most times when I close the DVD tray drive, I am not pushing it in far enough, because the top of the DVD tray is rubbing against the laptop's case. If I just press down VERY SLIGHTLY and push the DVD tray in, the tray will fully close and CLICK shut. This works for me. Good luck.

My cd/dvd opens then closes


> I've already replaced it once

Well, I've seen CD-drives that would re-open, when you try to close them -- it is _falsely_ detecting a "jam" as the tray is closing, and then just re-opens the tray, rather than "forcing" itself to close.

Replacing the CD-drive is the only way to fix that type of "false-positive" jam-detection conditions.

But, since you've done that, either you were unlucky-enough that the replacement drive was also "defective", or, you have a computer-virus on your computer that is maliciously issuing commands to the CD to "open-the-tray".

CD tray opens and won't stay closed for burning


Sounds like an issue with the contact behind the button on the drive. How old is the drive? Replacements are cheap these days.
