Earlier today my xbox was working fine and now it wont stay shut. Every time i put in a game or movie or just try shutting it with no disk, it closes but opens right back up... When i turn off my xbox it just closes, shuts down, and then opens back up even when the powers off. Can anyone help me?
Whenever I close my disk tray the tray closes and just shuts off, then turns right back on. Also When I turn my Xbox on the power button light is constantly flashing, saying that the tray is closing or opening, does this mean the tray is broken? Any suggestions. I have just a regular Xbox 360.

I have this problem after searching this fault on the net I found it to be the Lens sticking on the rails if the Xbox isn't shut down properly the lens assembly stays at the far end of it's track out of reach of DVDs & Games. I don't recommend this if your not handy with electronic devices or it's under warrenty but search the net for the fix & pull it apart, eventualy you'll get to the drive open it & thers the problem. just push it back into place put it all back togeather try it & shut it down properly each time & it should work mine still does
A lot of people have this problem. Before you post, look around.
Anyway, I was able to call xbox 360 customer support. We did the troubleshooting but it still would not work, so they took my xbox 360 in for repairs. I would not try to fix it on your own because it might negate the warranty.
I just solved this problem, very simple actually. Possibly can happen when the drive WILL close, but then loud noise as it tries to spin the disc up. Open the drive up (4 little screws on the bottom) and lift the lid up. If you look on the top white magnet spinner, the bottom side of the magnet system broke off of the disc motor. It will look like a little metal ring stuck to the white spinner thing whatever it's called. I popped that off and examined it, then used some krazy glue to stick it back on the motor spindle and it's away and going now. The reason the drive will not close, is because when the little magnet first breaks off it can get misaligned then when it tries to shut it gets in the way. The MAY be the cause to the problem. I fixed this issue today with mine, hitachi drive.
