Press eject wait one second and smack the top of the console
right over the cd rom drive HARD . This will release the tray
and allow it to open. The problem is the eject motor is to weak
to break the magnetic seal between the hub and the spindle motor.

The drive will need to be open ,and all the transit gears will need
to be cleaned and re lubed ,or you can gap the hold down magnetic
so the motor can break the seal with less force.

if you have any questions feel free to ask.

My xbox360 won't read disc's it just says open tray

I learned this from a Youtube video and this did the trick for me. Hopefully, it will solve it for your X-Box 360 too! 1. Put disc into X-Box 360. 2. Turn X-Box 360 off. 3. Open tray. 4. Take disc out. 5. Slam Tray 6. Turn off X-Box 360 (Immediately after slamming the tray shut) 7. Turn on X-Box 360 _______________________________________________________ Your dvd drive probably has a bad motor. There are three motors inthere. One moves the tray. One moves the laser and another spins theDVD. If the tray ejects than that motor is fine. If you hear the discspinning then that motor is fine. Take the top off the dvd drive andsee it the laser moves when you close the tray it should move slightlythe laser should bob up and down and light up if none of that happensyou have a bad laser drive motor or bad laser. The solution is to buy agood DVD drive the same as your make and change the pcb boards (thecircuit board in the DVD drive) make sure yor pcb stays with yourconsole as the motherboard and pcb are keyed together.

The game receiver door are jamming and i can not

try it in horizontal positions and vertical positions.

I had an 360 at one time that would not open the tray if it was in the vertical position.

My X-Box 360 disc tray will not open, it starts to, but it never gets past the face plate, i think it's jammed, but im not sure, is there any way to get it open ??? HELP!!!

Try taking the face plate off and then hit the button with a small object. If it opens it's you faceplates's fault and you should try and get a new one. If it doesn't it's CD Drive's fault. You could take a butter knife to it and pop it open but I would suggest calling Xbox Customer Support first. Their number is 1-800-4MY-XBOX. They can help you out from there. You might have to send it in, sadly.

Tray jammed shut on an xbox 360 possibly a quarter jammed in the tray

your only recourse may be to replace the drive. They are easily found on ebay but if you have never replaced components on a computer let someone who has experience doing so perform the upgrade.

do a web search on how to swap the drive

Cd tray on my 360 wont stay shut

either you will need it repaired or u can do it the cheap way and after the disc tray is shut put some tape over it and see if it will read it still. If not it will need to be repaired. It will only cost about $35 or free if you are still under warranty.

X box tray

There may be something jamming the gear inside the drive causing the motor to spring the tray back out.
