    Xbox 360 disc tray stuck.

    Banned
    My brother gave me his old xbox arcade to fix so my mum could use it, the drive is stuck i managed to follow microsofts drive wizard and got it open using the paper clip trick but as soon as it shuts it wont open again unless i use the paper clip again.

    i dont really want my mum having to do this each time to use it as itl take her far to long, anyone know any suggestions before i search for a new slim for her to buy.

    Have you tried keeping a disc in the drive?

    Previous people I know who have had the stuck tray problem have advised keeping a disc in the tray at all times.

    They do this and theirs opens first time, every time

    Repair the drive (hardware/fw updating flashing etc)?

    You could also try "not literally" oiling the runners and or the front panel might be ill fitting and its getting stuck on that.

    Repair drive through doing a drive replacement you would need to google the information as ive only done it once myself through swapping a section of the drive off with another, just google changing DVD drive xbox360 or something should produce you some hits.

    add 'PS3' in front of slim before you search

    added that and it came back " hacked much ".

    some right retards on this site, its for my mum if you cant read and she wants an xbox for kinect ( i know i need power adapter too ) why would she want a ps3 when she wouldnt use it? idiot

    I know this is not the right thing to do and probably goes against everything you should do but the same things happens to my sons xbox and he just whacks the top and it opens.
