    stuck tray devolves into unending spiral of sadness


    so the disc tray on my Xbox 360s was jammed and I did what any reasonable person would do. I took off the face plate and stuck a paper clip into various holes (per Microsoft's instructions) and got the tray working again. huzzah! I plug in and turn on my
    Xbox and it asks for an update. "why sure, xbox, anything for you!" except then it tells me I don't have enough space for the update and bumps me to the sign in screen where there are no profiles. upon further inspection I have what seems to be a brand new
    Xbox with no memory. is there anything I can do?

    tl;dr i must have jacked up my memory when manually opening my tray. help.

    :)

  2. Starting to second guess if getting an XBOX One was worth it?

    And the best part? You STILL HAVE THE HARDWARE THAT WORKS! WHY LOSE PROGRESS AND DLC AND ONLINE TO PUT IT IN A DIFFERENT DISC TRAY? First World Problems, Wow, Many Cry, Such Sadness etc.

  3. Good Game Microsoft Good Game ... making me think my old console was a lost cause

    Must admit, that was one advantage on the original xbox console. There was a small hole by the side of the disc tray into which you could insert a straightened out paper clip to manually open the tray if ever it stuck.

    If you had a model with harddrive, maybe its loose, take out power cord and try reseating the harddrive in the slot.

    Yeah...Idk what taking the faceplate off would have done to your memory. And as far as the "no memory" Located's advice is sound. If that don't work then either the external HDD is dead or in the internal HDD is.

  6. Since you state that it is a 360S then there is no external HDD, it`s an internal (but removable) HDD.

    As suggested, remove the end cover and just check that the HDD has not become dislodged while you were messing around. As if the HDD had gone faulty then the power button would have a red light and the TV screen would show fault code E96.

    Handy tip for all 360 owners, all models of console

    Every stuck disc tray from every Xbox was fixed after I walked in the room lol

    To prevent the stuck disc tray, leave a disc in it.

    I won´t happen with a disc inside.
