    Dear fixin2b,

    nsindian has asked you to clarify your question to best assist with your XBOX 360..how do i keep the tray from problem:
    how many controllers do you have that are wireless? take the batteries out of the one you're using, if it's wireless, and then put them back in then hit the Menu button for a few seconds to turn the XBOX ON. Does it turn ON?

    Turning the Xbox ON was never a problem...getting the tray to stay closed is the issue...The screen says "close tray" but it won't STAY closed, no matter what we do or how many times we do it.

    as stated previously, the problem is not that the console won't turn on, the TRAY WON'T STAY CLOSED..once the machine is on! DVD Tray keeps opening...no matter how many times I close it, it comes open and STAYS OPEN.

    Paying 14.99 for live chat was NO help since the person didn't know anything about the XBox360, never messed with one or anything....Total waste!

The xbox 360 elites keeps on saying open tray when trying to play


1, the disc may be dirty
2. the mian reason for this your xbox drive cannot read the disc , because the power of the lens is gone(not completely) ,

solution:

1. keep your disc inside the drive and switch off the console, again swith on try this 2 to 3 time
2. keep the console in vertical position or little slanding position(180 dg) make sure it does not fall

3. its better to buy hatddisc and load the game inside it , so that u lens life increased

4. change the entire drive

Xbox 360 starts up randomly, tray opens and closes spontenaously


I have the same Problem my X box came on spontaniously and the DVD tray opens and closes non stop till I get the RROD code. it will play games and DVDs only if it stays closed long enough to start then it opens up and starts the cycle all over. I opned up the DVD drive and can't see any thing blocking any thing I even used a Q tip to pit a little oil on the screw meckanisim that opens the drive and blue it out with compressed air. and it did not fix the problem I am going to have to buy a new drive my Drive is a Philips drive.
