Hi, the problem could be down to one of a couple of things the first and most commone is a dust build up on the runners inside the tray sometimes knocking on top of it would read the games for about 4 days. then knocking will stop working. if you have any warranty left then take it back and get them to fix it or replace it, if you have no warranty left then you could either pay someone to fix it or try fixing it yourself if you do it yourself goolge for xbox 360 repair guid and this will then list loads of sites that show you how to take it apart, doing this will void any warranty and can cause more problems if you get it wrong..
if after getting it cleaned or cleaning it yourself it still dont work then this points to the fact that the dvd drive is no longer working and will need replacing.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

What I get from your explanation is that you tray gets stuck, right?

I can fix it, but I will explain you what causes it, when you insert a disk in the tray and is closes, the spindle, is the middle part at the center the rises up to hold the disk in place while it spins, well that spindle attaches to a small round plastic magnetically at the top of the Dvd drive case that spins along freely when together , Now for some reason that magnet that sticks to the medal part of the spindle sticks too hard and dont want too loosen up from the spindle..

A simple solution is take the dvd drive apart, and on the spindle put on some electric tape, but cut it out the same size of the spindle, like the size of a dime or smaller, stick it to the spindle the and the magnet wont hold the spindel too tight..

Hope this help.

Xbox open tray error


Not sure but sounds like you may have bent or broken a plastic tab, or not fully straightened the tray yet. There will be a microswitch or sensor of some type that indicates tray open if it is not closed or within tolerance. The tray must be properly straight and if there is a tab that closes the microswitch it needs to be straight and secure too. It only needs to be slightly bent to fail to register closed. Hope this helps.

DVD Tray will not stay closed


There is a leaf switch inside the loading mechanism, which detects the tray to fully closed state. If this switch has damaged, this kind of fault will occur. To repair it, you have to open the set, and take the loading mechanism out, and disassemble it. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here.Pull up older posts.

The faceplate is the plastic piece on the front of your console.
  • Press firmly around the edges of your faceplate to snap it into place (make sure it is flush with the rest of the console). If the faceplate is not on correctly, the disc tray won't close.
  • If you find that the faceplate is the problem, please contact Xbox Support to order a replacement faceplate.

The gears have probably come out of sync, meaning the tray is riding on the limit switch. You need to remove the deck, dismantle and re-sync the drawer mech. Check the limit switch isnt bent, it's quite flimsy
