    I had recently contracted the red ring of death. I used the fix on I-hacked.com and my 360 was healed. However, now the drive keeps ejecting.

This is a known issue with the 360, most likely the cause is that the spindle that holds the disc is loose or completely broken off. As the way the cap for the spindle was made, microsoft used a magnet to hold it in place instead of glue or soldering as most drives would have. This is just another instance of inferior workmanship on their part to save money.

Contact 1-800-4MY-XBOX to get an RMA issued.If your console is out of warranty, open your console and get the model # of the DVD drive used in yours, then check online for any vendors selling replacements.

My door will not stay shut to play a game what is wrong.my ps2 door was not opening so we thought we fixed it but now it wont stay shut . all lights are on just wont stay shut to even read/play any games...


the tray doesnt stay in. does your ps2 sit on its side where the tray is sideways, or is it straight up? i think you should try rotating it to a point where it should stay shut.

The disc door wont stay shut it keeps opening


There could be something jamming the disc door, or one of the gears are cracked. If it's the gear, you'll need to get it replaced. Luckily, some online shops sell it cheap.

Xbox dvd drive


I have had both these problems before.

For the drive tray door that will NOT open do this.
  1. Turn off, disconnect from the TV and unplug your XBOX (otherwise your risk the remote chance of causing a short).
  2. Get a paper clip and insert it into the tiny hole just to the left of the power button to manually open the tray door.
  3. While the tray is open take a Q-tip (aka cotton swab) and clean the edges of the tray guides and carefully spray a little compressed air into the bay (***do NOT shake can before or during use and hold the can vertically so only air and no refrigerant comes out***).
  4. If this does not fix your problem you while have to have your XBOX serviced unless your are comfortable taking your XBOX and DVD drive.
For the DVD tray that will not stay closed.
  1. See step 3 and 4 above.
For disassembling your XBOX and DVD drive there are numerous guides online. (www.llamma.com/xbox/Repairs/cleaning_your_dvd_drive.htm)

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.
