Re: door does not stay closed

The number one quick fix for the DVD drive is to re-align the tray. This is common with CD players, CD changers as well. Many times just from normal use a gear will skip or something will jump track, unless all the pieces are in the right place at the time it powers up it will not work. So by removing the tray, aligning the internal parts to their starting position and re-inserting the tray you can often bring a drive back from the dead

Tray closed, but keeps saying tray open

You are having tray sticking problems, you can solve this temporarily by keeping a disc in the tray at all times, even when the console is off or you can give the console a gentle pat close to the front part where the disc tray is, not advisable though because the 360 already has SMD dry joint problems, do this occasionally, try and remove dust also around the grooves under the disc tray, hope this helps

My 360 just froze up [ unit is still locked in

unplug the power box from the wall for a few seconds and then try to tun it back on if the problem continues then it could be either a cooling problem or a game problem. check the game to make sure its clean. and be sure your 360 is laying FLAT not standing up the main air flow for the consel is located on the right side of the consel (the opposite side of the hardrive) keep atleast 4 inches on that side

I have a 1 month old arcade edition. ive been having trouble when putting in a new game it keeps saying open tray.... ill open and close the tray and clean the disc. it will eventually start working. Is...

you should try to clean the eye of the consel. get an adult (if your not above 18) and get a can of airduster (canned air). then just spray inside the game drive. make sure your can is level when you spray it or else the chemicals from inside the can will spray into the consel and that would be bad. not a total loss just sum that you dont want to happen

Door well not open

hit the top of the consel were the disk drive is it could just be dusty and has 2much friction to move on its own. if that still dosent work then push the buttom to open it and get a thin object (like a butter knife or sum that wont damage the consel) and use leverage to open it but make sure the consel is trying to open it itself or else you will jam the gears if you dont do it rite
