Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

The Disk Tray

Whenever I am trying to open the disc tray it just budges then stops. It doesnt opens at all. I have hit it a bit for it to open and it doesnt open completely when it does. I figured that something was wrong with the gear for the drive, I am not sure, butI would love to get some help and solve the problem. Thank You.

Short of taking it apart yourself, there isn't much you can do. The same thing happened to mine (I was also receiving the red rings). I sent mine back (due to the red rings)and they sent a new 360. If it is still under warranty, I highly suggest phoning Microsoft and explaining the situation. Also remember, if you are experiencing the red rings, Microsoft has extended the warranty to 3 years.

My games wont play and it says open tray


You have dirty laser or bad laser or dirty disc drive period. Try cleaning laser with qtip. If that doesnt work keep the disc drive apart and hook it up to the 360 make sure not to let your disc drive ground out anywhere on the 360. Hit eject button and close tray seeing if the laser even goes up with the tray. If it doesnt try greasing the rails and gears in there where everything slides.

The disc tray will not open on the PS3. What are some recommendations?


If you correctly meant PS3 then there is actually no tray to open. The discs slide in and out of the slot.
If you instead were talking about a 360, since you posted in that section, here is a tip. When you hit the eject button you will likely here a bit of a "thunk" sound. Once you hear that ball your fist and hit the top of the Xbox just above the DVD drive. This should cause the tray to slide open.

DVD tray will not open.


Hello,

The disc is dislodged and jamming the drawer. You have to remove the cover, about three, maybe four screws, and then take the disc out to resolve the problem.
