Took 6 attempts to open my disc drive today!

So I turned my 360 on & hit the "open tray" tile. The 360 makes noises like it's trying to eject the tray but it never pops open, then it goes into trying to read a disc like it was open & closed, after it goes through this process the "open tray" tile pops back up. This has happened to me before but never took more than 2 attempts to open & doesn't do this when a disc is in the drive. Today it took me 6 attempts (3 through the dashboard & 3 by pressing the button on the console), should I start looking into getting a new 360 or is this a problem that can be fixed?

Would you happen to be using an old xbox or are you using a slim?

I'm still on the original model and the best thing to do is remove the faceplate and try to re-center your tray. That normally opens it up for me. If not, there is a tiny button that you can stick with a pin and that would pop out the tray a bit for you.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
