Well, my bros does that as well. and i just push on the disc tray a little, like push it up if the console is laying down.. it also could mean the motor that pushes the disc tray is off or disfunctional.

Power sunroof wont open on my 2006 hummer. It just makes a popping noise


see technician immediately before more damage is caused to motor, channel, gear and locks, which would be even more difficult to replacw due to scarcity of spares

Dvd drive wont open , can hear motor working but drive wont come out. we believe the cd holder isnt shifting up/down to allow the drive to activate & open


Turn the computer off,Remove power cable.Use a peper clip insert it through a hole infront of the dvd drive this will eject the door.Make sure once this is opened the tray is aligned properly,slide it in and out.Push it in all the way then power up the computer.This may work for a while,before it goes again,so you might have to replace it.
Good Luck

My xbox 360 disk tray will not open it wont even open a little some one help me


have you tried to open the drive using the xbox dashboard, when you press the eject button does the power light flash? is there any noises coming from the drive when you try to eject.

It could be a faulty drive and the only way to get into the drive is by opening the console up and this could void your warranty. if your hearing noises (motor spinning) from the drive it could be the drive belt has snapped (like a small elastic band) you could have dirt in the gears and cogs jamming the drive. so you wouldnt hear noises (except the disc spinning if there is a disc in it).
if the power light flashes when you press eject more than likely it is the drive belt or dirt in gears.

Dvd drive has jammed, and is open about half a centimetre, when it is pushed in it makes a grinding noise like its trying to read a disk but wont click shut or open


Here's the thing...most people and pc makers don't realise you should never push the trays shut. Only use the button to open and close them. The reason being, as I see you have the issue of it, is that the gears can very easily jump. The only way to fix this is to remove the drive, take it apart, {gently} and separate the 2 gears. The one on the tray and the one on the motor. move the tray all the way out, then turn the motor gear all the way around so it matches with the door gears at full out position. close tray. reassemble, put back in and try it out. If all goes well, you just saved yourself a few good bucks. good luck.

Wondering if anyone is any good with lite on shm 165 drives? Been trying to figure out why it wont open the disk tray. No disk inside, pressing the button makes an audible clunk noise. Pushing the pin...


Problem found on mine: tray opening mechanism is belt driven, while others are gear driven, belt tends to stretch with time and slips on motor pulley, gears do not. Just cheap built. Remedy= Belt can be removed from front with open tray, soaked in rubber rejuvenation liquid for few seconds, cleaned and dried, re- installed on pulley.
It works now, but for how long, I have no idea.

FREEZER SOUNDS VERY NOISY


that because the internal fan is hiting the ice or has bad bushings you can hear the noise just with the door close because when you open the door there is a switch the one turns off the internal fan so when you close the door it turn on the fan again if you wants to hear that with the door open just open the door and push the botton swich with your fingers and you'll hear the noise

Ouch, horrible problem.
Try these:
1. hold the eject button for 30 seconds
2. leave the xbox off for a few minutes
3.try a new outlet[may not have enough power to do anything]
4.get a new power cord
Hopefully this helps

Can you hear any gears grinding when you try and eject it? Has anyone ever pulled or pushed the tray in roughly?
