    Thanks, your prob right. nice quick response thank you but would tray motor affect the console from starting??

  • ggiddens Nov 30, 2008

    when i want to plat any game it wont start it and it wont play. Earlier when i had it it played the games fine untill i got grand theft auto 4, which i think its the whole problem. it started skipping all of my games and later on they all quit working . i just didnt know what to do so i took it apart and looked at the hard drive to see what the problem was and it seemed to be nothing wrong with it so i put it back togther and it hardly takes the cds so my brother cleaned the whole system and did everything he could possibly do and nothing worked. so all i got to do i guess is to send it back.

Sounds to me like the motor in your tray is shot or about there. the best thing to do is to take it to a repair shop or a pawn shop.many users have had problems with the x-boxs and they don't seem to last very long. my advice is if you have had your fair share of use out of it then it is time to trade it in for a better model.

I have satellite C50D-B-10q. How do I open the CD/DVD drive?


Removing discs
To remove the disc, follow the steps as detailed below:
Do not press the eject button while the computer is accessing the optical disc drive. Wait for the optical disc drive indicator to go out before you open the disc tray. Also, if the disc is spinning when you open the disc tray, wait for it to stop before you remove it.
1. To pop the disc tray partially open, press the eject button. Gently pull the disc tray out until it is fully opened. When the disc tray pops open slightly, wait a moment to make sure the disc has stopped spinning before pulling the disc tray fully open.
2. The disc extends slightly over the sides of the disc tray so you can grasp it. Gently lift out the disc.
3. Push the center of the disc tray to close it. Press gently until it locks into place.

How to remove disc when the disc tray will not open:
Pressing the eject button will not open the disc tray when the computer power is off. If the power is off, you can open the disc tray by inserting a slender object (about 20 mm) such as a traightened paper clip into the manual eject hole near the eject button.

Manual eject hole:
Turn off the power before you use the manual eject hole. If the disc is spinning when you open the disc tray, the disc could fly off the spindle and cause injury.

See page 4-8 of the user manual:

I had this error code as well. Here's the solution that ended up working for me:
  1. Eject the disc tray and remove any disc from the console.
  2. Important: Do not close the disc tray. Leave it open.
  3. With the disc tray open, remove the power cord from the back of the console.
  4. Gently push the disc tray about half-way back into the console.
  5. Plug the power cord back into the console.
  6. Push the power button on the console. The tray should close the rest of the way, then the console should restart and display the Xbox Dashboard.
  7. Important Do not use the controller or the disc eject button to turn on the console.
  8. Try updating your console software again.
What this does is put the DVD drive into Mode-B, which is an alternate operating state that allows the drive's physical memory banks to be flashed with new firmware. Because the latest XBL update involves flashing the drive with new firmware, you may need to physically put the drive in Mode-B. The latest update flashes the drive to make it compatible with Microsoft's new high-capacity disc format, XGD3, which will be used sometime in the future.

Xbox games wont read


Well this might be a problem with your disc reader rather than the discs, sometimes the eye just needs to be cleaned but if you are looking for a quick fix then try instead of closing the disc tray with the button, try pushing it closed with your hand. Don't be afraid to put a little force but this worked for me until i got the guts to open up my xbox.

CD DOOR WON'T OPEN


Just below the CD/DVD tray there is a tiny hole. Insert a straighten paper clip in this hole and gently push the paper clip until the CD/DVD tray pops out. You can now pull the tray out until it is in the fully opened position to remove the disc.
Try pushing the eject button to see if the tray closes, then push the eject button to see if the tray opens.
If this foes not work then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and it needs to be replaced.

Xbox360 disc tray motor won't stop spinning


Hi Matt,

Here is the process for troubleshooting this specific issue:

  • First remove your disc from the tray. I assume you have already done this.
  • Ensure your faceplate (the front of your system) is on correctly. Sometimes these can become loose and off kilter. Press the two edges firmly with your hands and "push" it into place.
  • Push the eject button. Although it hasn't worked in the past, adjusting the faceplate may correct the issue.
  • If that doesn't work, move the disc tray drive gently from left to right when it is open. Again, be gentle-- what we're trying to do here is slightly adjust the disc tray in case it isn't entering your system properly.

Still not working? Time to send it to Microsoft for repair. You can find all of that information on their official support site. Click here for more details.

Hope that helps!

Why does my xbox say system update failed status code 3151-335A-B380-0402-C000-016B?


Your console had a problem during the update process. Carefully follow these steps:

Remove any disc from the console.

Leave the disc tray open.

With the disc tray open, remove the power cord from the back of the console.

Plug the power cord back into the console. Do not turn the console on yet.

Gently push the disc tray about half-way back into the console.

Push the power button on the console.


Important: Do not use the controller button or the disc tray eject button to turn on the console for this step.


The update should now continue. If the above steps do not work, the console might need to be repaired. This worked for me, I hope this helps you.

Toshiba sd-4205 5-dvd carousel changer declares mecha error during startup, will not eject tray.


This may not work for everyone, but.....
I had the same problem with the Toshiba SD-3205. After unplugging, trying button combos, etc, nothing worked. I could here a slight whine inside the machine, and then again...."MECHA ERROR".
I turned the unit on its side to see if there was a manual tray button on the bottom. Nothing. Then just to try it, I turned the machine off and on again while on its side.
It started up, I heard a clatter, and then the display changed to "INSERT DISC". I placed it the right way up again and pressed "OPEN TRAY" and it worked!
My theroy: There was one DVD in the carousel, and I think last time the tray shut, it got wedged somehow and prevented the carousel from rotating. Turning the machine on its side and pressing "OPEN" is what dislodged the disk.

Xbox does not read discs.


Getting to the dashboard screen is a good thing but still cannot rule out a bad circuit board or power supply. All the symptoms point to a bad DVD drive but the opening/closing by itself do indicate a problem with the microprocessor. Can you turn the power on and off with the small button?? If not, would definitely suspect bad board.
