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.

SOURCE: to play disc put it in an xbox 360 console.

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.

SOURCE: The disc tray on my

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

please rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated answers and try and leave a testimonial, thanks

Xbox 360 door tray off track and will not close


First, do not attempt to try to fix it right away. Unplug every cable and adapter, so you only have the xbox 360 console. Then, if a video game disc is still in there, take it out. Next, try to determine what your disc tray is stuck on, and try to remove it carefully. If these steps do not work, look at these articles.

My xbox says its connected to xbox live and it updates but when it gets to the end its say cant process update status code:3080-335a-1380-0500-cooo-0032


I think I had this error code as well. Here's the solution that ended up working for me:
  1. Eject the disc tray and remove any disc from the console.
  2. Important: Do not close the disc tray. Leave it open.
  3. With the disc tray open, remove the power cord from the back of the console.
  4. Gently push the disc tray about half-way back into the console.
  5. Plug the power cord back into the console.
  6. Push the power button on the console. The tray should close the rest of the way, then the console should restart and display the Xbox Dashboard.
  7. Important Do not use the controller or the disc eject button to turn on the console.
  8. Try updating your console software again.
What this does is put the DVD drive into Mode-B, which is an alternate operating state that allows the drive's physical memory banks to be flashed with new firmware. Because the latest XBL update involves flashing the drive with new firmware, you may need to physically put the drive in Mode-B. The latest update flashes the drive to make it compatible with Microsoft's new high-capacity disc format, XGD3, which will be used sometime in the future.

Hi,the door for putting disc in wont open.every time i push the button there is noise comn from machine like its trying to open but it cant?


Hello,

This happens to me every now and then.
Here is how you can get around it:

Sometimes, you cannot open the disc tray on your Xbox 360 console by pressing the eject button. Any of the following things may cause this problem:
  • There is a hardware failure that affects the console, the disk drive, or the eject button.
  • A disc is lodged in the mechanism.
  • The clear protective plastic strip that is applied to the front of the tray to protect it during shipping is preventing the disc tray from opening.
To manually eject the disc from the disc tray, follow these steps:
  1. Unplug the power cord from your Xbox console. For more information about how to disconnect the power supply, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 906205 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906205/ ) How to connect and disconnect your Xbox 360 power supply
  2. Position your Xbox 360 console horizontally, as you would position a VCR or a stereo component.
  3. Remove the faceplate from your Xbox console. For more information about how to remove the console faceplate, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 907331 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907331/ ) How to attach or remove the faceplate on your Xbox 360 console
  4. Depending on the kind of disk drive that you have in your Xbox 360 console, you can use one of the following methods. Note In each case, make sure that you align the tool (a paper clip or stiff wire) to pass through another notch behind the hole on the console casing. Collapse this imageExpand this image906935.jpg
    • Method A: Insert a straightened paper clip or other small, stiff wire into the first hole from the left side of the disc tray. To release the disc tray, push the paper clip 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 1.5 inches (approximately 4 centimeters) from the left edge of the disc tray.
    • Method B: Insert a straightened paper clip or other small, stiff wire into the second hole from the left side of the disc tray. Push the paper clip repeatedly into the hole to turn a gear to release the disc tray. The hole is located about 1.5 inches (approximately 4 centimeters) from the left edge of the disc tray.
    • Method C: Insert a straightened paper clip or other small, stiff wire into the hole that is directly under the "X3" logo on the Xbox 360 label on the disc tray to release the disc tray. The hole is located about 1 inch from the right edge of the disc tray.
  5. After you release the disc tray, the tray pops out slightly. You can pull the tray out the rest of the way to remove the disc. Note If you use method A or Method C in step 4, you may have to firmly press the disc eject mechanism to eject the disc tray.
  6. If you determine that a hardware failure has occurred that affects your Xbox console, contact Xbox Customer Support or submit a repair request for your Xbox 360 console.
