Eject Button Not Working At All
Posted 14 July 2012 - 03:28 AM
It won't power on the Xbox when I press it and it certainly won't eject the disc.
The manual disc eject button hidden below the drive also seems to not have any effect and doesn't eject anything.
I'm not sure what could be wrong. I've checked for shorts and any bad traces or solder splashing and I see nothing that could be causing this ANYWHERE.

but like i said in your other thread... the front pannel PCB is probably just lose, try pressing against it as you push you the button.

There's no eject button apart from the one with the LEDs. There is a manual eject facility which involves poking something long, thin but stiff (like a ballpoint pen ink cartridge) down the hole adajcent to the disc drive drawer on the front of the Xbox.
It sometimes requires a fairly firm push and may help if the back of the Xbox is propped up so that the front is point down at an angle. You should feel resistance when you poke the tool down the hole but press against it and the tray drawer will be pushed out a little way, enough to pull it open.
I'd suspect shambles1980 is right about it either being a trace or front panel PCB problem of some sort but I was also wondering if you have you checked the cable connections to the disc drive are all press fully home?
Edit: I posted this before I read your news about it now working but still might be useful so I won't delete it.
