Xbox 360 problems

on October 24th 2012, 10:30 am
So yesterday after playing a game on my 360 with my son and I took out the game to my horror the disc tray will not stay closed any longer. I have an older Xbox model I think it was called the pro model back in 2008 when I bought and up until now I have never had a problem with it.

What happens is when I go to close the tray either with the button or using the on screen menu the try pops back out like a disc is not sitting in it right but there is nothing in the tray. I even unplugged the system and the tray drive still keeps opening and refuses to stay close. Even if I try to push it back in manually it wont stay shut. For the time being I have is shut with a piece of tape so dust and that wont get into it.

I was wondering if anyone around here has had this happen before and is there some way I can fix it without having to send it in, since right now I dont have the money due to my preorder of the Wii U.

Thanks in advance for any and all help.

there is a small disc tray reset button that can be activated with an straightened paper clip, but it is usually used to get the tray to open if a disc gets stuck because of the infamous RROD, but perhaps it can be used to close it as well?

This would only be a temporary fix if it even works at all. Sad

Kushina is correct, but I'm not sure if that would help in your case, but it couldn't hurt to give it a try. Wink

Hahahaha! I'm the same exact way with my Wii console. I always lay it flat whenever I leave the house, because my cats chase each other around the house sometimes.

LOL well the reason I asked is because some consoles dont work properly if they are standing up. Even if they were designed to.

Yeah lol thats another reason why I like to lay my systems flat. Heck even my Wii is laying flat even though everywhere you look they have it on its side.

Anyhows it looks like I fixed it but it just seems temporary. I giggled the tray around but as it goes in and out I can hear the motor struggling and it sounds like it could go any day. Sad Looks like I am going to have to pull the Star Wars Xbox out of storage and hook that up as soon as I can find a away to transfer my data from my current Xbox to the new one.
