Ouch, horrible problem.
Try these:
1. hold the eject button for 30 seconds
2. leave the xbox off for a few minutes
3.try a new outlet[may not have enough power to do anything]
4.get a new power cord
Hopefully this helps

Has anyone sat/steped on the xbox they could have bent the metal caseing around the dvd drive making it hard for the tray to come out.

How to fix the "open tray" error on Xbox 360


When ever you have a problem with your Xbox 360 always do these steps first:
1. Turn off your Xbox 360
2. Unplug all of your cords
3. Plug your cords back in
4. Turn your Xbox 360 back on

1. Now with your Xbox 360 on open your tray.
2. Hold your tray open while you turn Xbox 360 off making sure it doesn't close.
3. Still making sure your tray doesn't close turn it back on.
4. Have fun!!!


If this does not work you will have to send it into microsoft to fix. If your warranty is up you will have to pay $150 to fix it. Otherwise it's free

My xbox 360 wont play my 360 games it always says open tray


try to get those pressurized air guns and blow it in there. for a quick check try to blow into the tray lightly. this could be caused by dust build up. Microsoft doesn't cover this so if that don't work open it up and test the connection in the back of the drive to see if it's loose. if its not that. open up the drive and get a q-tip and dip it in alcohol then clean the laser eye with it lighly

I close the disk tray and immediately opens again and stays open


Hello,Do you have the original face place on? Some after markets will cause the open tray button to stick. Next check the button to see if it moves freely, when doing this, also try feeling the button if it bottoms out, check for any debris behind the button, If these don't change the situtation, then there is a sensor on the tray to tell if it's opened or closed, the sensor is either malfunctioning or something could be stuck to the bottom side of the tray from preventing the disk to load, The last thing would be to look into is there a forgien object stuck in your tray area like a piece of papper or plastic, I hope this will help resolve your problem, we look forward to hearing back from you and please have a nice day, Thanks

Xbox trouble


Your CD Drive tray needs new alignment. I don't know what to say about your Video Port since it works sometimes.
