I have an Xbox here that has a DVD drive issue. It won't open the tray of the xbox when you press the button. However, I can manually open the tray using a paperclip. When I insert a disc, it works fine. But it will not open.

Should I disassemble the dvd drive and check things out or should I trace the path of the button back to the drive? What would you all recommend?

Is there any place to buy replacement parts for the Xbox yet? I saw www.gameconsolerepair.com - but their website says they have no parts for xbox and to contact another site. This site refers to you them! Nice loop.

Hmmm.. someone else had this same problem, however I don't remember what ultimatly fixed it. Do a search and you should find something.

Off the top of my head, i would make sure that you plugged in the yellow cable fully (at both ends), and that your not acidently grounding something out.

If you havn't installed a modchip, then ya maybe it's defective and a warranty repair might be in order.
