Disc Tray Problem

Okay, my disc tray only stays open for 8 seconds, then closes, regardless if your still putting in a disc. and it also does it if it is nudged even a tiny bit. and while its open, the power light continuously flashes, whereas my brother's and friends's xbox(s) stays open until pressed again, and does not flash.... is there a problem with my xbox? how can i solve this?

Infact CA92793 That is Not Correct...

Dont say it is. Because its NOT.

The Disc tray on xbox360's Stay Open for unlimited time UNtill the User Press the button again. I have a Xbox360 elite and I pressed my disc tray to put in my Battlefield : Bad company.
and i went to the toilet before i put it in. came back and it was still open and i was gone for more than two minutes.

So explain that? and no its not broken. because my mates is the same when i go round his house.

Got a solution for that *****? Nope. I didnt think so.

That is how the X-Box works. It doesn't stay open, because if it stood open and it accidently dropped or anything, the drawer would break, and that would cause alot of problems with Microsoft. Thanks for using Fixya!

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 took a small coffee straw and put some liquid silicone in it and stuck it through the front disc tray carefully to the small engine in the back. Hold your finger over the back of the straw so that the liquid stays in until you are over the engine top.Then I put in a disc cleaning disc for about 10 sec and then put in saints row 2 and it hasn't said "open tray" for about two weeks and counting.....
