If u r trying to say you cant open the tray....depending on which 360 you have (there r a few different drives microsft uses for the 360) if u take the face plate off, look for a hole close to the trey, take a paper clip and push in the hole and it will eject the trey without having to power up the console. (pc's use this same technique,look at your pc trey to get the idea)

Visit this link and there you will get a video on how to open your ps3.
But this is to inform you that opening ps3 will void the warranty.
Good Luck and have a nice day.

When i turn on my xbox 360 when i try to put in my disc the disc try will not open does anyone have any ideas??

Remember to thumbs up if this helps, if not comment for further assistance.
It could be a slipping drive belt, there are tutorials on youtube on how to change this without voiding your warranty.
But it is more than likely the eject motor has worn so it cannot disconnect from the magnet, try this,
Lay your console flat, press eject, then give it a good rap with your knuckles, about where the center of the disk would be, this will let the motor drop so the draw will open, when you try to load a game, if it goes to open tray, give it a good rap in the same place. your console will need opening and either a new motor or a weaker magnet needs fitting.

Drive tray keeps opening and does not read disk

Do you mean it will not stay closed?
if that's the case the (closed leaf switch) in the
drive is shorted together . gotta open it up
to fix it . that normally happens when someone
trys to open it up with a thin screwdriver.

If the laser was good (reading games) before the tray problem
its still good.

Xbox 360 won't play discs

This is the thing to do. Open the drive and look at the tray. Then go to this site to identify your dvd make
buy a good working drive or a new one you have to open the drive and change the pcb board (circuit board in the dvd drive) from your drive to the good or new one. Then reinstall everything. The motherboard and pcb board are keyed together so you can't just use the drive with out changing the pcb's. If you need a drive I sell good used ones for $29 and $10 shipping.

?how do i manually open the disc drive?

Get a small flat headed screw driver and prise it open, although i wouldn't recommend that unless its the only option.

(Two small screwdrivers might work better, try both.)
Good luck,

Xbox 360 issues


You should probably stop banging it, I think you're doing it more harm than good! You can buy replacement DVD drives, it should either be a Samsung or Hitatchi, eBay is a good place to start.

Opening your console is easy enough. have tutorials on this.

I hope this helps, please rate if at all helpful, thanks!

Is it making a sound when you press the open button like it is trying to open but won't... if so press the open button and when it tries to open, push in and up slightly and it should pop open. keep inh mind this could be tricky and take quite a few attempts it happens with my Xbox all the time.
Good luck!
