Re: xbox 360 disk drive does not close
Hi there. There is a solution out there, called the 'rubberband mod'.
By tieing a rubberband to the rail on which the laser slides, you restrict the movement of the laser, and force it to stay within a readable range. It is essentially a bumper.
Here's a link with a video that gives all the info on it; http://www.360mods.net/News/article/sid=71.html
Hope that helps ! cheebster.

take out the cd. close the tray with no disk in it. let it read till it says open tray
open and close it like 3 times with tha method mentioned above with out the disk. then put the disk back in and it will probly work.
sometimes the system turns dumb and u haft to remind it to reconize when there is actally no disk.
Most likely your disk or dvd drive is dirty. Run the disk through a disk cleaner and run a dvd cleaning disk through your drive.
If that dos not work, try removeing disk, close drive, turn off console, unplug power supply, wait 10 or 20 seconds, then reconnect power supply and try again.
If that fails, assumeing other disks will read, your disk may have a major flaw. You can check with your local game store, they often have a machine that may restore your disk, (most places that I know of charge like 1 or 2 $).
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.
If you don't have the tools to open your 360 go to best buy or an office supply store and get a can of compressed air and blow the dust out of the dvd drive. If that doesn't work then the lens needs to be cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. This has worked for me on numerous occasions.
try reseting the system in the system settings this, is sometimes caused by an update not downloading and or installing correctly. once you reset to default, try updating the system on xbox live. if this continues you might have a drive issue. good luck....
