Disc Tray Problems

#1eagle099Posted 10/28/2011 4:58:53 PM
I find myself in a not so nice situation at the moment.

My xbox has always had a problem with the disc tray jamming. Not a huge problem, use the paper trick, works everytime. However, my room mate wanted to play COD the other day and the disc tray was jammed. I was out at the time.

Lacking the knowledge with electronics in general, he decided to use a screwdriver to try and pry the damn thing open.

Long story short, my xbox is stuck in the "disc tray opening" stage. I turn the xbox on the tray opens immediately and the light continues to flash non stop. When I close the tray, it opens back up immediately. It also does not close when I try to manually push it close. Even when I try to turn it off, the tray closes and then opens back up before the thing shuts off.

I know things aren't looking good but is there anything I can do besides get a new room mate obviously.

Thanks

If there's pry/tool marks on the console they won't repair it.

Here are your options TC:
Buy a used console
Buy a new console
Try to find someone/some way to fix it yourself.
