    My disc tray will not stay close. I called microsoft and they said that since my game is not under warranty and I don't have the 3 red lights, I would have to pay 100.00 dollars. I don't have a 100 dollars to give them for something that's there fault. If you know what I can do to fix this problem, please help.

    my xbox 360 disc tray wont stay shut, if i press the disc tray button to close it, it closes, but only to reopen about a second later. the only way i can keep it shut is if i turn the 360 off, and then manually shut it, is there anyone that knows how to fix this?

    my xbox 360 wont stay closed it just opens and closes as soon as i close it

  • Stickof92 Feb 10, 2009

    It all started this afternoon, I tried opening my disk tray to play some COD5, but the tray refused to open. I had this problem before, so I pulled the old screwdriver out and opened her up with alot more force needed than the last few times (it's happened 2 or 3 times(but they opened and I placed a disk in and it was fine so long as it had a disk in it when it's turned off)).

    So I managed to half open it and put and old DVD in it, then I closed it and tried opening it... no result >=(. I then did the same thing but I pulled it fully open and then turned it off. It stayed open up to the point where I turned it back on and hit the open tray button, it closed for about a second then opened again. This happens everytime I close it, be it with force, with the button on the console, or the icon on screen (if its there). I even tried closing it and powering it down, it just opened up a split second before turning fully off!

My xbox does this, and there is a way to sort it temporarily if you're really desperate to start playing... All you need to do is insert the disk and as soon as the tray is closed tap (hit) the top of the xbox, this releases the spindle and it starts reading. I will be sending it back to MS before I cause too much more damage though.

SOURCE: Xbox 360 disk tray wont stay shut

My 360 is/was having a similar problem...my 360 would say "reading disc" then "open tray". Well since my system is only about 8 months old...I opted to send it in for repair. Its under warranty. My system is in route to be fixed as we speak. I would advise you to get yours registered too.

Disk tray is not spinning


The way to fix this is to open the disk tray and blow inside for about thirty seconds getting the dust out of the way of the laser also blow across the disc tray and the surface of the disk. Then keep closing and opening the tray and it will start to read hopefully. if this does not work go out and buy a disc cleaner. it looks like a disc with sponges on it and when you insert it into the console it cleans the inside for you.
