Disc tray will not open. I've turned on &off several times and it won`t open the tray. tries to but won`t open

This problem is caused by a loose drive belt in the eject mechanism, you need to open the ps2 and replace the drive belt...

Take off the top cover, then take off the cover from the top of the dvd drive mech... then carefully remove the disc tray and you should see the belt near the front. Replace that belt and it should work fine again

On a couple of rare occasions the drive motor has been found to be faulty, but usually replacing the belt will fix it

My xbox keeps telling me to open the tray and wont play the game. i blew it out,turned the power off and on.can anyone help

X-box's are notorious for having bad hardware. Chances are, the drive is faulty. You may need to have it serviced or replaced. If you still have a warranty on your 'Box, I would suggest calling Microsoft and discussing this more in depth with them. Good luck!

The power light blinks, reads open tray/close tray . . .

it sounds like your dvd drive is dead if its still under warranty you should just send it back to microsoft the only other thing you could do is buy a replacement dvd drive and put it in yourself but only do that if microsoft wont take it or you'll void your warranty

Disk wont open or close

well i had the same problem with my xbox is i opened the faceplate and pressed the button and if that doesnt work u will have to wiggle it around a little bit if it comes out what u need to do is take some WD-40 and spray some on a cloth or something to wipe the sides of the tray and the silver part of the tray and open and close it a couple of times if it opens and closes put the faceplate back on and it should open and close now

Xbox does not read discs.

Getting to the dashboard screen is a good thing but still cannot rule out a bad circuit board or power supply. All the symptoms point to a bad DVD drive but the opening/closing by itself do indicate a problem with the microprocessor. Can you turn the power on and off with the small button?? If not, would definitely suspect bad board.
