xbox error codes when eject button not working


Recommended Posts

I picked up a faulty Xbox off eBay to fix. The rrod problem was mentioned, but not the faulty eject button. When it got to me, it worked for a while and I was able to test the drive. It's fine. I could eject the drive from the control panel. It's just the button. However, now the rrod is flashing away I can't retrieve the error code. Is there a way of doing it when I can't use the eject button.




And it is the physical button that's knackered, not the plastic button on the front.

Possibly... I think there's a wire you can short in the drive's power cable that controls the disc tray. What're you talking about with retrieving an error code with the eject button, though?


I'm talking about this:



It just helps you identify the cause of a RROD. But I'll probably just try a reflow on the GPU.
