(New) Xbox won’t accept discs

Hello, any ideas before I throw the console out the window? (My ds would probably jump after it)
Got an Xbox one S at Christmas, it has been fine except a disc got stuck in it and I had to follow the advice online (push paper clip into yellow circle at side to remove disc) - which worked.
Now I can’t put a disc in at all, well I could shove it in but it’s supposed to be drawn in by the Xbox.
I have tried unplugging it, and half inserting the disc while pressing the eject button the only suggestions I could see on line. No joy.
I bought it online and no idea how I would get help with it if it’s a fault.
So turning to mumsnet (no change there!)

Did you buy it new? Email Microsoft if so.

Hello, yes it was from amazon and I’ve just checked I can still return it to them - obviously worried they’ll say it was our fault but we’ve had other consoles for years without breaking them so I don’t think I’ve done anything stupid to it! Thanks for replying.

Lots of info and potential solutions here

Thanks Pork. Have gone through that and their answer is that it needs repair - most of the fixable things seem to involve it being unable to read the disc, rather than that it won’t accept it. Now I need to work out how to post an Xbox to Germany without it costing the earth!

If you email amazon they may arrange to collect? Their customer service has always been really good.

Best of luck!

Send it back for sure.

Thanks guys. Have just realised we threw the box out in a fit of new year tidying. If I accept a repair amazon will send a free postage label, if I ask for a replacement (as it’s still so new) I have to pay postage - to Germany! That Black Friday bargain isn’t seeming so good now Confused
