Question about Microsoft Xbox Console
If you hear it trying to eject then the actuator belt and pulleys have become too dusty to have the traction they need. Unplug it and pull the face plate off. You should see a black plastic gear. Manually turn this gear to your left with screwdriver. Keep turning it until the tray pops open. Look through the slot in the tray and you'll see the belt. Tweezer that puppy out of there (gently now! don't stretch it too much). Detach the small pulley first. Clean the belt and pulleys with alcohol. To put the belt back on, always loop the big pulley first. Makes it much easier. Don't stand it on end and lokk down to do this. If you do and you drop the belt, it'll vanish into the murky depths of the 360. Leave it lying flat.

SOURCE: no power
Try using another power brick from a friend and see if it works, if the xbox doesnt power on, then It may be that the board is not getting the power, but I will be harder to tell, you'll have to open your xbox and check.

when this happens, it either symbolizes that somehow, your tsop32 chip has corrupted in your dvd drive and has lost the dvd key, or you (someone) has attempted to flash the firmware on the dvd drive and it has ended in a failure and destroyed the initial firmware. basicly, if you have your dvd key, you can try to reflash the drive with working firmware (tutorials can be found everywhere) or, if you have warrenty left, send it in. if all else fails, find a person who knows how to disassemble an xbox 360 + dvd drive, desolder the tsop32 chip, and rip the firmware. this can be costly though, and you'll need a new dvd drive afterwords if your old one gets broken in the process. and if you can't get the dvd key, well, your 360 is now an expensive dvd player.
best of luck

When the Wii fell, the laser that ejects the disc could be dislodged. Contact Nintendo Customer Service (1-800-255-3700 in the USA and Canada) or, buy a new Wii Console.

hi, when you press the eject button if the tray just comes out a very small amount if as soon as it comes out this way you push it in and let go quickly as if you where pressing a button it should then open.
so when you press eject the try will come out a small amount then stop as soon as it stops press it back in then let go then it should open on its own all the way.
the problem is to do with a small rubber band inside the xbox, this will need replacing but the chances are the whole dvd drive needs replacing, if you have any warranty left take it back if you dont and you cant get it to open even by pushing it back in then this means the drive is beyond repair and will need replacing.
if how ever it comes out slightly and when you push it back in it opens then i would keep doing this until it no longer works as its a nightmare just changing the dvd drive as you need to take the circuit board off your and swap this onto the new dvd drive, without doing this the xbox will think the new drive is faulty and it wont work so you need to swap the control board off your faulty dvd drive and swap this onto the new dvd drive without doing this it wont work.
the xbox is covered by 3 years warranty so have a look on the date on the back and if the xbox has not been opened before then go to the official xbox site and lodge a repair they will then come and pick yours up and give you a refurbished one back with some warranty on it.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Depending on the type of disc drive that you have in your Xbox 360 console, use one of the following methods:
Method A: Insert a straightened paper clip or another small, stiff wire into the first hole from the left side of the disc tray. To release the disc tray, push the paperclip into the hole to press the manual eject mechanism. The manual eject mechanism is a white lever that is visible behind the console casing. The hole is located about one-and-a-half inches (approximately four centimeters) from the left edge of the disc tray.
Method B: Insert a straightened paper clip or another small, stiff wire into the second hole from the left side of the disc tray. Push the paperclip repeatedly into the hole to turn a gear to release the disc tray. The hole is located about one-and-a-half inches (approximately four centimeters) from the left edge of the disc tray.
Method C: Insert a straightened paper clip or another small, stiff wire into the into the hole that is directly under the "X3" in the Xbox 360 label on the disc tray to release the disc tray. The hole is located about one inch from the right edge of the disc tray.
In each case, make sure that you line up the paperclip or stiff wire to pass through another notch behind the hole on the console casing.
