If it won't open, turn off the console and remove the faceplate and try to eject the button. if it still won't open get a paper clip and straighten it out. you need to locate a small hole that exactly fits a straightened paper clip. it's located just below the silver lining of the disc tray about one and a half (1 1/2") inch from the left side of the disc tray. insert the paper clip into that hole and it should pop up the disc tray enough for you to be able to pull the disc tray all the way.

if it doesn't work there are still 2 more small holes that you can locate. the 2nd one is just beside the first hole and the 3rd one is just under the second X on the XBOX 360 text on the disc tray. try those two holes if the first hole doesn't work.

Unfortunately thats not covered by microsofts warranty but i have a solution because my xbox 360 does the same thing. its a hassle but when you want to open the disc tray you have to take the faceplate off and then when you hit the open disk tray button gently pull on it to help it open.

I cannot get the disk tray to open


Well is the disk tray doesn't open then you should take it to a repairer and see if they can fix it as trying to fix it yourself could mean breaking it even more. =] Also do not try to keep opening the tray as if it has a game in it, it could be jammed and break/damage the disk. =]

My 360 does not read disc, everytime i place disc in ,it says open tray


I fixed this for me today. I opened the tray, and took the disk out. Just inside in the middle there is a small disk that rotates. I just rotated it a little with my finger to get it moving. Once it started spinning the disk tray closed on its own. I then put a disk in and it started reading it. I guess the piece that moves the disk got stiff and just needed some assistance. Hope this helps.

Disk stuck in Koss c928. DVD powers up and says waiting. How do I get the disk out and how do I reset unit


There should be a small hole on the door of the disk tray. insert a paper clip in the hole to manually open the disk tray. remove the disk and see if the tray will open and close normally. If it does put another disk in and see if all is well. If not I would have a repair center look at it.

WILL NOT READ DISK. SAYS OPEN TRAY


Clean your disk tray and the cd. If that doesnt work try unplugging your xbox 360 for 30 mins. If all else fails send your Xbox to repairs.

Xbox not reading disks, it just keeps repeating: open tray, reading , open tray, reading.......sometimes i have to open the tray twice, sometimes its 20 times. The disk is in perfect condition. Please...


Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the DISK DRIVE READ ERROR

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a GOOD REPAIR GUIDE, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

I used Gamer Fix to get the best guides

The other solution would be to send the console off to its manufacturer, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $150

I am Glad I could help and You can help others by rating this Post or leaving a comment.
Many thanks

Xbox 360 disk tray wont stay shut


My 360 is/was having a similar problem...my 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.

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.
