i just fixed a rrod and now whenever i push the eject button the light blinks once and then doesnt do anything... when i look at the dashboard the screen says "Reading" and there is nothing even in the tray.. i cannot eject from the dashboard either.

Either it was already like that, or you possibly put the cable in upside-down, it's loose, or it's just a bad cable. Is it a Toshiba-Samsung drive? If so, you can try pressing eject, then tap on the front of the bezel and it should open.

i know it has something to do with the xbox.. wiether it was before or after i don't know...

i do know

it is a hitachi drive(non hdmi xbox)
the xbox works fine(no rrod)
it will not show " (x) to eject" on the dashboard
it constantly switches between - "Reading" and " Closing Tray" every 10secs or so
i have put the dvd drive in another xbox and it works...
I have put new cables and new dvd drive and still no eject
i have tried to reflow the southbridge twice with a 1200w hot air gun

when i push the eject button the light blinks once and then stays solid and i hear no motion coming from the drive
i know the dvd drive still get power because i can use this bad xbox to power it and connect to jungleflasher and gain(modeB) but JF won't dump or flash

Have you tried putting a different drive in that Xbox to see if it will eject/read DVDs?

update: i tried reflowing the southbridge one more time.. this time i let the gun go for a longer period of time and still no results..

also the laser does not move nor does the motor spin or anything either....
the drive gets power but does absolutely nothing.(the drive is still godd when i put it in a different xbox)

Here's the problem - you're using a heat gun. Also, it may not be the southbridge, it could be a blown/broken cap near the SATA pinout, a cut trace, etc, though I would place my money on the southbridge too. What was the error code before you fixed the RROD?

i found my problem

problem solved... the dude before me had scratched the mobo when he took off the x-clamps... good thing all he broke was a resistor and not a capacitor.. so i just bridged the spot with solder and it works now.

it was "R2N15" underneath the southbridge

here is a pic so anyone else with the same problem
