Open tray on xbox when it's closed


when the tray is closed and it does not
see a cd it should say open tray


The problem weak or dead laser
laser are chep 30.00- 40.00
and not to hard to swap out.

second it may be a bad drive motor
or bad spindel motor .in that
case you will to buy a new
drive and swap out the P.C. board
from the old drive to the new one

Drive tray keeps opening and does not read disk


Do you mean it will not stay closed?
if that's the case the (closed leaf switch) in the
drive is shorted together . gotta open it up
to fix it . that normally happens when someone
trys to open it up with a thin screwdriver.

If the laser was good (reading games) before the tray problem
its still good.

Xbox 360 disk tray wont stay shut


My 360 is/was having a similar problem...my 360 would say "reading disc" then "open tray". Well since my system is only about 8 months old...I opted to send it in for repair. Its under warranty. My system is in route to be fixed as we speak. I would advise you to get yours registered too.

I close the disk tray and immediately opens again and stays open


Hello,Do you have the original face place on? Some after markets will cause the open tray button to stick. Next check the button to see if it moves freely, when doing this, also try feeling the button if it bottoms out, check for any debris behind the button, If these don't change the situtation, then there is a sensor on the tray to tell if it's opened or closed, the sensor is either malfunctioning or something could be stuck to the bottom side of the tray from preventing the disk to load, The last thing would be to look into is there a forgien object stuck in your tray area like a piece of papper or plastic, I hope this will help resolve your problem, we look forward to hearing back from you and please have a nice day, Thanks
