I have made sure the xbox is grounded and it still opens randomly. I tried it in several other plugins and I get the same result. What other idea do you have? Any help would be great.

Sometimes greasy fingerprints/dirt etc can build up on the eject/power buttons if you have the slim console and cause the tray to open, try giving the buttons a good wipe over.

Only the 203w power bricks have grounded AC cabling. 175w and lower were switched to two prong polarized plugs.

 

There hasn't been a "ground" to check since late 2007 in the 360's primary market.

Ok Itried cleaning it and nothing. Still opens when it is shut down for the night. Almost like clock work. Every 2hrs it will open the tray wait 10 minutes or so and close the tray, Then shut down again.

Hey there Manly! Can you try removing the current storage device and using a different one, either a Hard Drive or USB device. Once that is updated and working, power down the console and see if you get the same issue. If not, it seems to be an issue with that storage device. Let us know what you find out, thanks!

You don't have a controller somewhere that is having the guide button constanly pressed? Guitar hero controller maybe with batteries that are running low?

No I have 4 remotes but I tried taking all there batteries out and it still does it. The only thing I have found that stops it is either keep it unplugged or leave it on all the time.

make sure ur xbox isnt near anything metal cuz metal things r known to mess with the xbox...if u dont get what im saying, than i let u know how it does mess with it, my buddy put his xbox on a glass table with metal bars under the glass, his controller would not connect, it would take 5 mins for it to connect, so i told him not to put it on that table, so he move it to a wood table, now his controller connect fast instead of waiting 5 mins.
