Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Disc drawer sticks

When i press the drawer open button, it tries to open but sticks. if i tap the drawer with my knuckle it eventually opens but by the time i've got my disc in hand it shuts again! this means that putting a new game in the drive requires me to move faster than a speeding bullet and i'm afraid i am no superman!

The cd drawer quit opening and closing- how do I get it to work


I had a cd drawer that would not open.
At first, I could tap it with my knuckles while it was trying to open.
Then eventually I had to replace it when it would not open at all.

DVD draw sticking


sounds like the gears are worn!! next time you get it open look underneath and you will see some round gears. put some vaseline on them, not too much and open and close the drawer a number of times to work the grease in. all equipment needs lubrication of some sort !!

Toshiba sd-3990 Disc-drawer won't open


I was given one of these the other day. I was told the drawer wouldn't open yet the machine seemed to function fine. I removed the six screws holding the top on the box and then removed the four screws holding the drawer assembly in place. As you lift the drawer assembly out of the box, make sure you release the two pieces of black retaining tape holding the data cable to the box floor. Turn the drawer over and you will see that there is a little sideways bar mounted on the front underside of the drawer assembly. This is sticking. As you press the OPEN button, jiggle this bar and the drawer will open. You may have to manually move the drawer cogwheel a little to help free it up. Hope this helps.

The DVD drawer will not open


I have the same problem. Best way to open the door is to hit the eject button and then bang lightly on the door using the remote controller. Works every time.

I read about some magnetic thing failing as the unit gets older. Mine does this sometimes and I gently tap top of unit as I hit the eject button. Works on mine so far.
