Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Pretty much i have a game stuck in the system my power brick does not work so theirs no power going to the console is it still possible to open the disk trey with a paper clip even though theirs no power running through the console

The hole on mine where everyone said to put the paper clip had a piece of metal directly behind it so putting the paperclip there did nothing. the 2nd hole from the left under the tray was where i could turn the gears from, with no power

You can do it without the power by using this method. I made it and it works with or without power

I'll try and help you out...
1. You could try the paper clip method but I wouldn't recommend it, if you are able to take your console to a near by games store they may open it for you using one of their power bricks...
2. You'd have to run the correct voltage through the console or you could cause irreversible damage to the unit, you don't want to fry the motherboard! You could pick up a pre-owned brick or use a voltage converter...
3. Yes you can use any power brick as long as the voltage is correct..
I hope this helps a bit, sorry if not. Please rate!
