Re: x box tray

There may be something jamming the gear inside the drive causing the motor to spring the tray back out.
Hope this helps

How do you turn the xbox 360 on and off

Just bush the button on the right. You can even push the open/close tray button and it will turn it on but not off. The round button and basically the only button besides the tray open/close button is to turn it on and off. If you have a controller synced to the 360 you can also turn it on and off with the controller.
Thank you,

Xbox 360 disk tray wont stay shut

My 360 is/was having a similar 360 would say "reading disc" then "open tray". Well since my system is only about 8 months old...I opted to send it in for repair. Its under warranty. My system is in route to be fixed as we speak. I would advise you to get yours registered too.

Xbox 360 starts up randomly, tray opens and closes spontenaously

I have the same Problem my X box came on spontaniously and the DVD tray opens and closes non stop till I get the RROD code. it will play games and DVDs only if it stays closed long enough to start then it opens up and starts the cycle all over. I opned up the DVD drive and can't see any thing blocking any thing I even used a Q tip to pit a little oil on the screw meckanisim that opens the drive and blue it out with compressed air. and it did not fix the problem I am going to have to buy a new drive my Drive is a Philips drive.

360 disk tray

What I did was took apart my Xbox and put the disc tray back on the tracks, carefully lifting it over the circle thing in the middle. When I lay my Box down horizontally, it opens and closes fine.

Disc Tray wont stay shut

A lot of people have this problem. Before you post, look around.

Anyway, I was able to call xbox 360 customer support. We did the troubleshooting but it still would not work, so they took my xbox 360 in for repairs. I would not try to fix it on your own because it might negate the warranty.

Cd tray on my 360 wont stay shut

either you will need it repaired or u can do it the cheap way and after the disc tray is shut put some tape over it and see if it will read it still. If not it will need to be repaired. It will only cost about $35 or free if you are still under warranty.
