HALP! My Xbox wont stop blinking the disk drive light!

Postby galaxyfox » Tue Jan 23, 2018 2:10 am

So, you know when you press the eject button on the xbox and it blinks to indicate its opening/closing? Or even when its reading a disk? Well, mine wont stop doing that, here's the info-

There's no disk inserted at all

I've tried swapping out 3 different xbox DVD drives, still does it.

Tired replacing the power button board, still blinks

Tired checking to see if there's split traces, but there isn't

Every time i want to play a game, i have to shut it off, turn it back on, insert the game, shut it off, and turn it back on :/

It thinks the disk drive is open but its closed. (the xbox is softmodded, so at the top right corner is says that its open, but its clearly closed.)



So what do it do? Is there a way to fix it? :/

your drive or hdd could be dying. recently i was fixing one for my neice and for some reason it was in and out of error code 6 and xbmc, whenever i powered it up, and it did the same thing with the light and the eject button as yours is. eventually the hdd just started making clicking noises. now its a permanent error code 06. your disk drive or hdd could be waiting for the reaper to come collect.

PS: it might not be that critical for you. check your ide wire make sure its connect ok. sometimes its as little as that.

Really? wow, ill try some new IDE cables, the disk dive is not the issue, but i could definitely see that it could be the HDD though, that xbox has been dropped a lot in its years :/ but it just recently started doing this.

What if it isnt the HDD or the IDE cables? Am i just SOL?

Oh and another thing i forgot to mention, every time i shut it off, it takes about 5 seconds before it actually powers off.

Most times when I had this. I took the DVD drive apart. Cleaned it out of dust and dirt, cleaned the laser off. Replaced the drive cable and that fixed it.
