This week my xbox started a weird behavior. The middle green light on the console constantly flashes whether there is a game in the tray or not. Today I powered it on (with game in the console) and the dashboard came up. Without signing into any profile, I tried accessing MyApps, Video Player and some of the other options and settings that don't require signing into a profile. Each time the screen would just hang. I tried accessing some of the to the other options and the same thing happened. I could press the B button to go back to Menus each time. I pressed the eject button and the tray opened but then immediately closed again. I pressed it again and took the disc out before it closed but the green light continued to flash. I then signed into my Xbox Live profile and I could access the Video Player and MyApps section but the middle green light continues to flash. I tried playing MW3 and it worked for about 15-20 minutes before exiting to the Dashboard. It did this a few times when I tried loading the game again each time exiting to the dashboard after a random amount of time. I've tried other games and get the same result. Sometimes the games will play for quite awhile without any issues but the green light still flashes.
I've seen some other postings with a similar issue but not many solutions. Wondering if anyone else has run into this? Could this be a firmware update issue? Hardware? I'm just not really sure where to start troubleshooting this. Any feedback would be appreciated.
