  3. So, my disc tray refuses to physically open even though the menu shows it is

The light is even blinking indicating whenever I press the eject button or eject it from the menu. It shows me that it is closing or opening, but the disc tray itself will not physically eject out. There was a disc stuck inside and I opened it manually via paper clip trick to get it out.

Now the tray still won't eject and the light indicator is still blinking. Also, I don't hear any sound whenever I press the eject button. Any one know the problem and solution?

Is this a new Xbox? Did you remove the sticky tape holding the draw closed?

I had the same issue, but the draw worked after a little persuasion ( i ripped the faceplate off so i could get my fingers on the disk tray stop a little easier) Then I ended up taking that white piece on the end of the tray that says X360 off, and as long as I left a disk in, It opened on closed fine

If the gears aren't turning, and you can't hear the little motor\servo whatever it is, then it's most likely all done

Update, probably should have mentioned I have an old Xbox model and I also ripped the faceplate off. (It's the MW2 bundle model)

I woke up and turned on the Xbox and press the eject button, it works now. Looks like I'm going to be paranoid for a while.

Mine does that from time to time, but opening it from the dash always works

Guys...it did it again. This time the 360 randomly restarted while I was just on the Dashboard. It's blinking again. It's been restarting a few times already. I'm scared.

If it stops working all together take it to have it fixed. If you have the money for a new xbox just buy a new one but if you have some spare cash have the disc drive replaced. Mine burt out on me awhile back it was like 73 bucks to fix. It was well worth the money.

There is a little rubberband that opens and closes the disc tray,

if that band is frayed or broke, that will be part of your problem.

Alright, thanks for the input guys.

I'm not too worried about data, since this is just the dvd drive not ejecting. I've decided to borrow a friends Xbox (he has not played in a long time) to hold my data and play on until I find a new one.

A thought: How easy is it to move your old data from a fat to slim Xbox?
