Disc tray my disc tray keeps opening and closing how do I fix it

    Mine does that too...but it's because it fell off the shelf 3 feet high on that corner where the eject button is (that fall lasted about 3 minutes in my mind). Anyway, I took off the case and the eject button (it can be removed) pushes a black button on the inside that actually releases the disc tray. That black button is broken/very loose and shakey. So when you hit the white plastic eject button that pushes the inside black button...its so loose that it sends many open/close commands. Have to keep tapping it until it either stays open, or stays closed. You can remove that whole controller piece and solder a new one in (or if somone just sell sthe black eject button maybe try replacing that). I haven't gone that far yet and have been just tapping it until it stays...I'll mess w/ it when i have time and let you know how it goes.

The best way, my brother found out is to turn the console into a different position like if it's laying flat flip it up or vise-virsa.

Make sure nothing is stuck in there without damaging the drive.

If not :
Send the unit back to Microsoft for warranty repair.
Call 1-800- 4MY XBOX to set it up.

First step is to check and make sure that 1.) There is nothing stuck in the tray slot (even something very tiny can cause issues) and 2.) make sure there is nothing lodged in the open/close button.

Tray closed, but keeps saying tray open


You are having tray sticking problems, you can solve this temporarily by keeping a disc in the tray at all times, even when the console is off or you can give the console a gentle pat close to the front part where the disc tray is, not advisable though because the 360 already has SMD dry joint problems, do this occasionally, try and remove dust also around the grooves under the disc tray, hope this helps

Dvd tray will not open or play


Hello,

The reason your player keeps reading a disc and do not play is because the the disc tray is not sitting the disc properly on the lens.

The disc tray is faulty, the mechanism that controls the opening and closing of the tray is damaged and needs repair.

To fix this, you have to get the appropriate screwdriver, open the cover of the player.

You will see a mechanism by the opening of the tray that controls the disc tray.

Get a replacement mechanism and change it. Mostly the rubber slacks and does not control the tray properly.

Changing the mechanism will solve the problem.

Take care

It wont read my disc it sits there and doesnt attempt to read any disc it says open tray how can i fix this?


Ahhhhhh This is a fun one! Ok here is the first thing you should do. Put a disk in the tray and keep in mind the position it is facing. Close the tray and wait for your system to say open tray now open the tray and examine the disc. Let me know if it is in the same position and we'll go from there!

Philips dvdr 3480 disc draw refuses to open


Illustration:
This usually happens when you close the drawer with no disc in it. There is a strong magnet inside the DVD-drive that keeps the spinning disc in the correct position. But when the drive is empty, the magnet is connected to tough to its counterpart (no disc in between) and the worn out motor and/or transmission (belt) is not able to pull them apart in order to open the disc tray.

How to fix - "brute-force-attack":
Press OPEN and give the disc draw a couple of decent slaps (or snap at the tray cover with your forefinger) until it opens. Repeat procedure, if motor stops before drawer is open.

How to fix - "high-tech-approach":
Disconnect power chord. Locate the slot provided at the bottom of the device, near the smaller, left clip holding the front panel. Insert a screwdriver into it at the far right (when viewing from the front), so you can push a small white plastic-lever-thingy (can be seen thru the slot) to the far left. Now the tray is partly opened and can be pulled out completely.

Future outlook:
Don't you never ever close your old machine with no disc in the tray - or just start over again...
