Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Disc drawer sticks

When i press the drawer open button, it tries to open but sticks. if i tap the drawer with my knuckle it eventually opens but by the time i've got my disc in hand it shuts again! this means that putting a new game in the drive requires me to move faster than a speeding bullet and i'm afraid i am no superman!

The disc draw doesn`t open when i press the open button

standing up or laying down?
when standing they sometimes stick, lay it down and if it still won't open then press down on the casing just above the eject button.
if that doesn't work then the unit will have to be opened, the dvd drive taken apart and completely cleaned.

My xbox disc tray is not ejecting

If you lay your console flat press eject, then give the console a few raps (dont go mad) with your knuckles where the centre of the disk should be the draw will open.
let us know if this solution helps.

Try tapping the drive front after pressing the button. If this dont work and the green light is flashing after pressing the eject button then the belt inside the dvd needs to be replaced.

Ps3 jammed disc

Unfortunately their is no step by step or guaranteed method to fix this. Here are a few things you could try: turning it off and on, press/hold the eject button, resetting while holding the eject button, shaking or tapping it a little while trying to eject it, holding it different ways ex. face disc opening down towards floor while gently tapping and pressing the eject button. Essentially do whatever you can to get the disc to jar loose, >but whatever you do, don't for any reason stick anything in the slot or try to open the case <Doing this will void the warranty for sure! If none of these work your last resort would be to return it for a new one (providing you still have your receipt and it's less than a year old) or take it to a costly repair guy.

Can you hear any gears grinding when you try and eject it? Has anyone ever pulled or pushed the tray in roughly?
