How to Fix the 360 Open Tray Error


Did you recently become the victim of the Xbox 360 open tray error? If so, you're going to find it fairly frustrating to get it working again. Rather than send it off to Microsoft for 8 weeks, I'll give you some pointers on how to fix it.

Things You'll Need

  • Screwdriver (optional)
  • The first thing that you want to do is restart your console. If you can't restart, simply unplug your console, and plug it back in.

  • The next thing you want to do is check all the cables on the back of your Xbox. If you have to, pull out each one, and put them back in place.

  • The next step you'll want to try is by removing the hard drive, and putting it back in. If you have another one laying around, try placing that one instead to see if that works.

  • If you've been trying the open disk error with the same game, try putting in a newer game. It may be the game's problem.

  • The last thing that you want to try BUT keep in mind that it's going to void your warranty, so do it at your own risk! You'll want to open up your Xbox, clean out the dust on the inside, and clean the DVD lenses with a Q TIP, or a cotton bud.

Tips & Warnings
