When I got this problem I put my xbox on its side then straight up and it opened. If You keep a game in it The drive should stay able to open.This is what worked for me.

Hi my xbox 360 wont read some disks it just says 'open tray'


Hi,

The lens is out of alignment so doesn't know where the start of the disk is. This means that you wiil get the "Open tray" message with each disk you place a disk in the drive.

If you have any warranty on the Xbox 360 then i recommend that you sent it back to Microsoft for adjustment.

If there is no warranty then what you could do is lay the Xbox on its side and repeatedly tap the top of the Xbox when you put a disk in to see if it will read.

If not then you will have to take the Xbox apart which is a difficult job, then take the CD/DVD drive out. Take that apart and adjust the lens unit yourself or take the console to a repair store.


Regards.

My xbox 360's disc drive not opening


Thank You Luke-7 yes it's jammed ,stuck ,seized,

Common problem ( Stuck Tray)

The reason is the eject motor is either to weak to break open
the magnetic seal created between the spindle and the hub
holding the disk firmly in the drive or there is too much friction
in the gear assembly causing the motor to stall-out

To get the tray to open press the eject wait one second
and then Firmly (HARD) slap the top of your console right
over the CD rom drive this will break the seal and release
tray allowing it to open.

The console should be open ,the Rom drive removed
and open and thoroughly cleaned out .plus I like to gap
the hold down magnetic so the eject motor can release
the tray with less force.

If you have any Questions feel free to ask

Xbox 360 disk drive problems


Yes , open up your CD drive remove
the top cover ,turn the belt on the pully
CC like you did before to pull the tray out
till it stops. There should be two small tabs
on etch edge at the end of the tray lift them
and pull this should relase the tray from
the drive . now look down in the frount
of the drive there are to leaf switches on
etch side the they should be straight.
the cats may have bent one of them with
his paws . I guess the cat will stay away
from your xbox now.


hope that help a little

Xbox 360: disk drive will get stuck...may be leading to disk not spinning


If you ever open the disk tray and then the power source is cut, the tray will try to ''autofix'' itself by making whatever state it was at the default position. This doesnt sound like whats going on for you, though.

If you can turn your 360 on and go to the main screen, try opening it with the ''open tray'' button on the bottom of the main screen.

If that fixes it, your problem is a faulty disk tray button.

If the tray still does that with the xbox main menu button, then its a mechanical thing with the tray.

Go to walmart and buy one of those air spray bottles (like an airsol can to clean dust out of PCs) and spray it into the 360 tray once it is opened. Aim the spray on the sides, what it sounds like is dust or something collected on the gears of the disc tray. If you have your 360 on carpet or a dusty surface this is probobly the problem.

Thats about the only thing you can do without opening the 360 up yourself (IF ITS STILL UNDER WARRANTY DONT OPEN IT) that will void the warranty. So if the airsol spray doesnt do it, then send it in to microsoft.

hope that solves it

PSP cant load games


Maybe needs the laser lens cleaning.
You'd be surprised how much dust get sucked in.
You can do it yourself if you are careful.
All you need to do is with the PSP facing you as normal open the drive door at the back, look to the right hand side inside the PSP for a little round shiny lens.
Then carefully wipe a coton bud across the surface. No pressure is needed. Sometimes thats all it needs.
There's a picture of one taken out of the PSP so you can see it more clearly. The bottom of the picture is the top of the drive where you insert the disks. The bit that looks like a record is the motor turntable that spins the disk. You should see that in the middle of the drive when you open the door. http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f217/StuartB4/PSPLaserAssembly.jpg
Hope it helps.

Disc tray


Not entirely sure but maybe the disk drive bricked, though I wouldn't replace it without looking into it more.  But it would make sense consider the noises.  Was there anything attached to the disc or was the disc damaged after this incident?
