Easy Way to Fix a Xbox 360 Stuck Disc Tray.

Introduction: Easy Way to Fix a Xbox 360 Stuck Disc Tray.

Hi guys, This will show you how to fix your stuck Xbox 360 Disc tray, feel free to comment, send any suggestions and questions.

Step 1: Credit Card (Best Way)

This way is the best and healthiest way to open a stuck disc tray! It's simple, when you hear the Xbox 360 disc tray trying to open simple put your credit card or any flexible card on the right side of the disc tray then flick the card towards you. Then it should just open!

Step 2: Hands (okay Way)

It's very similar to the card way (above). When you hear the disc tray trying to open just use your hand to pull the tray towards you.

Step 3: Bash the Side! (Worst Way)

This way is in my opinion the most unhealthy way for your Xbox 360, it's simple when you hear the disc tray trying to open just simply hit the Xbox on the right side then it will open!

    This works BUT these techniques are of limited use as they don't solve the problem, only get in once. I followed this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWXBDGPL8GE , cleaning up the two cogs and belt with surgical spirit and now my xbox 360 ejects fine. The only thing I did differenty to them was to use some reusable cable ties 1. to go through the centre of the tray and stop it accidently shutting (that would be very annoying) and 2. to go through the centre of the belt and stop it pinging off into the drive and never coming back. Fair warning this is a real fiddle, but it works.
