How I fix the xbox 360 controller blinking and sync light problem,when the sync button doesnt work?

My only guess would be that you disconnected the cable to the sensor while cleaning your Xbox. Have you checked all the connections before reassembling it? Check out the video I linked, maybe it'll help you!

Dvd stuck in tv/dvd combo

There is sometimes a pin hole in the front of the device near the tray, you push something very slender into it and it opens the disc tray. If This doesnt have that feature, you may need to manually dissasemble to retrieve your disc.

My disk trey does not open or close no matter what i do it doesnt want to open and when it does it doesnt want to read the disk what can u do fix it

this is caused by a problem in the mechanism and toothed gears that aid the movement of the drive.
most drives usually have a kind of pin-hole that you can use to reset the drives in case of issues like this but unfortunately, the xbox 360 has none so the best way out is to take it to a certified repairer and get it fixed. it shouldn't cost much. hope this helped you? please rate

Door will not open

make sure the drive is not reading a disk, because if its spinning it can break when you do this process.

look for a hole in the front of the drive, get a paper clip and stick it in there all the way, the tray will now eject or if its a slot loading drive the cd will eject

I cant get my xbox to play any disks, i says 'reading' and then asks me to open the tray and very rarely reconises that there is a disk of any sort in there! ive tried cleaning the lens but that doesnt...

Clear the system cache:
1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
2. Select Memory.
3. Highlight any storage device, and then press Y on your controller.
4. Select Clear System Cache. If Clear System Cache is not available, use the following controller button sequence to clear the system cache: X, X, left bumper,right bumper, X, X Note If you don't see a system maintenance prompt on the screen, try pressing the button sequence again.

Try playing discs without the hard drive in:
1. Turn off your console.
2. Locate the hard drive on your console.
Press the release button on the hard drive and lift the hard drive from the console.
Turn on your console.
3. Try to play a game disc.

If this resolves the problem, you will need to replace the hard drive.If not, do the same thing for your memory units. If it works without them, the they may be bad.

PS3 80 gigs 3 yrs old immediately turns off when you turn it on Has a rented disk in it any idea how i might get the disk out.

if u want to get disc out of drive take a "thin pin" which is thin enough to go in a small hole in the front panel of the drive...

while pressing the eject button...push this pin inside and you can get the disc out..

Psp problem

if it doesnt read the disk,you may want to open it up (but voiding the warranty) and clean the UMD drive.
if it doesnt read just one UMD,it might be the disk.
if cleaning the UMD drive doesnt work,you may have to get a new drive,or a new psp.

Wii console

Im not familiar with the Wii but i will try to help.

Is it just not opening or is it actually physically Jamed?

If its jamed, try turning it upside down and then back to right side up, then try ejecting it.

There may be a pin hole on the front of the drive, just like a computer cd drive, get a thick paper clip and insert it, push hard till the drive pops slightly open, then pull it the rest of the way and remove the disk.

Last resort is to open her up and remove the disk drive altogether and then take apart the case, then you can use your finger to move the disk back onto the carasel and then eject it once its plugged back in.

The disk doesnt stay in

you are going to have to get a new drive. you can send it back to xbox if you have the warranty send it back, if not it is the drive and you have to get a new one. it will come out to about $130. the best case would be that you just busted a pin and hope they can replace the pin. connie
