Re: xbox 360 starts up randomly, tray opens and closes...
I have the same Problem my X box came on spontaniously and the DVD tray opens and closes non stop till I get the RROD code. it will play games and DVDs only if it stays closed long enough to start then it opens up and starts the cycle all over. I opned up the DVD drive and can't see any thing blocking any thing I even used a Q tip to pit a little oil on the screw meckanisim that opens the drive and blue it out with compressed air. and it did not fix the problem I am going to have to buy a new drive my Drive is a Philips drive.

Hi, this is a pretty common problem for the xbox 360's. It is caused from the laser either becoming dirty or the laser is starting to burn out. The first thing I would try to do is open the disc tray and then unplug your 360. Then try taking some canned air or an air compressor and blow it into the DVD drive to clean off any debris from the laser. Plug it back in and try to load a disc. If you still get the open tray error, then your laser is starting to burn out and is in need of replacement. The xbox 360 uses the laser to determine whether the tray is open or closed, unlike the PS2 or PS3 which relies on switch. So, if it becomes dirty or burned out it can't read if the tray is open or closed.
well i had the same problem with my xbox is i opened the faceplate and pressed the button and if that doesnt work u will have to wiggle it around a little bit if it comes out what u need to do is take some WD-40 and spray some on a cloth or something to wipe the sides of the tray and the silver part of the tray and open and close it a couple of times if it opens and closes put the faceplate back on and it should open and close now
