The drive eject motor can't break the magnetic seal holding
the cd in the drive. I normally remove the drive clean out the
gears , re lube the guides on the tray , and some times
gap the magnetic to compensate for the lack of torque
need to release the sled and drop the laser assembly
and transit the tray open . but a good cleaning will
remedy the problem in most cases.

if you have any questions feel free to ask

Tip

Xbox 360 - Stuck or sticking tray fix!


If your Xbox 360 DVD drive won’t eject it can be a very simple fix.

The Samsung drive is almost always a very simple fix, if you have another drive, it may be more difficult.

To identify your drive, follow this guide:

• Remove the faceplate by firmly grasping the opening for the USB ports and pulling.
• Underneath the DVD tray there should be a small hole.
• Look at the wires in the hole to identify which drive type you have.

Red and Black Wires = Samsung Drive
Yellow Wires = LiteOn Drive
White Wires = BenQ Drive
No Wires = Hitachi Drive


SAMSUNG:

It is very common for a Samsung drive to not eject. It’s a very simple fix for this!

1. Power on your Xbox 360
2. Press the eject button
3. When the Xbox 360 “tries” to eject, just simply push in on the tray cover.

That should make it eject!

If it does not, please follow the guide for the other drives below:

This requires you to disassemble your Xbox 360. IF you don’t know how, look it up on google, there are plenty of guides.

Then follow these steps:

1. Remove your Xbox 360 DVD drive from the Xbox 360
2. Turn over and remove the four screws securing the drive (6 screws if it’s a Hitachi)
3. Remove the top cover of the DVD drive.
4. Put the drive back in the Xbox 360, connect the wires, and power on your Xbox 360.
5. Once the 360 powers on, eject the drive. Most of the time it should eject normally. If it doesn’t you may have to force it.
6. Unplug the Xbox 360. If you turn it off with the power button the tray will close first, we need it open.
7. Near the front of the drive, you should now be able to see and access a small rubber band that was hidden by the tray.
8. Remove the band, lubricate and replace.
9. Replace the top cover and hook up and test.
10. If that doesn’t work, you may need a new rubber band. If you can get one of the right size, replace and test.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE BATTERIES


Try pushing the batteries down first. Sometimes it helps to get them out that way. The springs help a little bit. It's a pretty tight fit.

The tray will not open


Ok first of all, your going to need a paper clip, take off the cover of your xbox 360, dont open up your xbox just the front cover plate, now theres going to be a little hole towards the bottom left of the disc tray, unfold the paper clip and stick one end in untill you feel a place where you can push, push as hard as you can and the disc tray should open, keep the cover off because you may have to do this multiple times.

My xbox 360 disc tray wont open how do i fix that problem


Slap the top of the the box as you press eject. that will get it open.
then wipe a little rubbing alcohol on the black belt
just under the tray . And a little petroleum jell in the
tracks under the tray . Then open and close the tray to
work it in.

Xbox 360 drive doesn't always open


Can you hear any gears grinding when you try and eject it? Has anyone ever pulled or pushed the tray in roughly?
