I couldn't find a "console tech support" section so I'm putting this here.
As of today my console (Xbox 360 slim) is acting very weird. Whenever I open the disc tray to swap games over and then close it again, it keeps saying "opening" on the disc drive section of the Xbox dashboard. Usually the game's picture would appear there and then I press it to play. Now this happens. Also, whilst this is happening the little green power light in the centre of the silver power button flashes constantly.
I have to open and then close the tray multiple times for it to properly detect my game and then I can play. I should stress that there is NO PROBLEM with the drive physically opening and closing.
There is also no problems (so far) in actually reading the games (they play fine) or installing them once it has finally decided to realise that the tray is closed.
Anyone know what this is and if I can solve it? I've decided to put my Xbox on it's side (it was vertical) and try it later after work. Hopefully that will help. I'm a bit angry tbh. I've gone through three old Xboxs thanks to the RROD (graphics chip soldering melting) and now I finally get this slim back in June and it too seems to be breaking...
