Question about Microsoft Xbox Console
Alright, I turn my xbox on, the disc tray opens, closes, then opens again.(by the way it opens very slow.) the light is always blinking and never stops. When i get my disc in the tray and it closes, it goes to the xbox dashboard screen and stays there, with the light still blinking over and over. My xbox also doesnt let me close the disc tray by pushing it closed with my hand either. I have never mistreated my xbox and i have alwyas pressed the button to close and open the disc tray. can you please help me!!

Getting to the dashboard screen is a good thing but still cannot rule out a bad circuit board or power supply. All the symptoms point to a bad DVD drive but the opening/closing by itself do indicate a problem with the microprocessor. Can you turn the power on and off with the small button?? If not, would definitely suspect bad board.

Tips for a great answer:
Inspect and clean your disc Take a close look at the
bottom side of your game, movie, or music disc (the side without a label or
image). Are there scratches? Excessive scratches or smudges can prevent your
console from reading the disc. Clean your disc Hold the disc by
the edges without touching the top or bottom surfaces. Using a soft,
clean, slightly damp cloth, lightly wipe from the center of the disc outward.
· Note Use ONLY water to
clean the disc.
Once the disc is clean, load the disc into your
console and see if the disc plays.

I have the same problem. Its got something to do with the laser I think, after a certain period of constant use it just packs up.
