you can manually open the xbox drawer. by taking the front fascia off and inserting a paperclip into the corect place. cthere are websites that show you this. If you are not up to this then microsoft support would be your best bet. as above

Tray off track


Hi valarieni42,

Here is the process for troubleshooting this specific issue:
  • First remove your disc from the tray. I assume you have already done this.
  • Ensure your faceplate (the front of your system) is on correctly. Sometimes these can become loose and off kilter. Press the two edges firmly with your hands and "push" it into place.
  • Push the eject button. Although it hasn't worked in the past, adjusting the faceplate may correct the issue.
  • If that doesn't work, move the disc tray drive gently from left to right when it is open. Again, be gentle-- what we're trying to do here is slightly adjust the disc tray in case it isn't entering your system properly.
Still not working? Time to send it to Microsoft for repair. You can find all of that information on their official support site. Click here for more details.

Hope that helps!

Mmy x box 360 cant read my game what should i do


This is a common problem with old xbox 360 consoles.If your console is still under warranty, try getting a replacement by visiting the support website at xbox.com/support.

If you are no longer covered by insurance you can do an old trick I used to do with my old xbox 360.
Open the disc tray and insert the disc, as soon as you insert the disc in the console, hit your xbox on the top surface a few times, around 3, by this I mean slap it. it might take a few tries but it worked me.

However, if you are having problems with a specific disc, you should try cleaning the disc with a clean cloth. If that doesn't work, you can borrow the same game from a friend or try to obtain a temporary copy. Download the game to your hard drive and insert the original game, it should work flawlessly.

My xbox 360 controllers have all green lights blinking,what can that be


The green lights usually blink either because it is trying to connect to the XBOX360 or when the batteries are low.

Xbox won't eject game


Attempting to pull it open was a big mistake obviously. I suggest contacting Microsoft and seeing if you can send it away for repairs and they will probably open it up etc.

Have had this happen several times.. maybe due to my childish tempers and the xbox recieving the end brunt of the cheating games and my fist..LOL
Heres how I fixed this.
Your gonna have to open the unit up, very easy to do with several screws at the bottom.
The unit will break away and you will see a chrome protection piece which will need removed also, make sure the unit is unplugged.
After you have it broke apart manually open and close the tray, you will see the lock mechanism which the tray lowers into and the release .
Open and close this several times you may also want to blow out the unit and clean it while its open,{ I use a que tip and alcohol, allow to dry before doing anything}. Close the unit back up and restart it.
This should help.,
