  • NuVanDibe Nov 03, 2008

    disc drive won't eject... when i try pressing the eject button, it says "opening" and then immediately says "close tray." pressing it again yields "closing" and then immediately it switches to "reading." after several moments, it says "unplayable disc."

    there's no disc in the drive. there used to be, but i took it out using the manual eject.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. I HAVE FOUND THE CURE TO THIS PROBLEM. BUT ONLY DO THIS IF YOU NO LONGER HAVE A WARRENTY OR IF YOU JUST DONT WANT TO SEND YOUR XBOX AWAY. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvLnU-pNyYw this video gives the solution that works on only a certain type of dvd drive. But for people like me who have the Samsung dvd drive it is a different amount of rotations of the screw. I just did 4 and 1/2 rotations instead of 6 or seven. And if this does not work just keep on playing around with those screws and you will eventually fix your exbox perminatly. And if you want to know how to open up your xbox360 just go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uj2A7mGGjuY I sincerly hope this helps for i know how *** it is to have a 360 that is just sitting there. lol good luck!!!

Big problem with xbox 360's are the chips on the main board getting bad contacts. This is what the 3 red light problem basically is.

When the contacts start going bad you will have all sorts of different problems, see http://fix-your-xbox-360.blogspot.com/ for more troubleshooting

My xbox restarts when i change to tv


Check these things:1. Is your XBOX360 using HDMI and COMPONENT CABLES?2. If you do have COMPONENT CABLE plugged in then my best bet is you're trying to play XBOX360 with 1080p which COMPONENT CABLES do not support.3. You may need to get an adapter(NOT RECOMMENDED) or just unplug COMPONENT CABLE (RECOMMENDED)lol.
Note:XBOX360 will restart itself when you switch between the two or even if you turn off and on, your TV.
My advice is to use one or the other :)
Hope this helps

Xbox 360 Frozen


Try removing your HD from the system then load the game.

If that works insert the HD and try again if the image still stays you may need to delete everything off your HD.
