Hey whats up? Im a loyal Microsoft Xbox use and Im trying to figure this Status Code out. What does "Status Code 03 80 00" mean to the techies? I called 1 800 4 MY XBOX last night, talked to guy named "Rudy" which was obviously not his name. lol Back to topic at hand. My box has been having this issue for a month or so now. It seems as if it is getting worse.
I put a game or DVD in the drive, nothing. "Open Tray" or "Unrecognized Disc"; so I proceed to Open and Close the tray until it finally reads. Sometime it may take 3 tries sometimes it seems like im sitting there 15 minutes trying to get it to read.
I talked with "Rudy", we proceeded to clean the cache, turn off the system, unplug everything, plug everything back in, put a game in and viola the game reads first shot.
Im thinking "Awesome!" Then this morning the dreaded "Open Tray" msg reappears with a vengeance! I turned down Rudy's offer on a follow up call. To be honest, I'm a father and husband supporting my family on a single income. "Rudy" told me there is a repair process, ship it out, flat rate fix,.. yada yada... somewhere around 120ish dollars. If my xbox is out of warranty tell me whats wrong with it. I will then decide whether or not I have the know how to fix the device myself.
Thanks for the read, I look forward to hearing something back,... if xbox wishes to contact me thats cool too. Either call me (im sure you got my number,.. somewhere, somehow) or PM me via Xbox Live. I can still play arcade games without a hitch.
