Tray opening and closing on it's own

I have this strange problem with my xbox360.

The disc tray is opening and closing all by itself. This happens randomly during the evening. The console turns on, opens the tray, closes it again, opens, closes, and it just keeps going. When I turn it of it stays off for some time before starting up again and the opening and closing continues. I have absolutely no clue as how this happens. However it is really annoying when I am trying to watch a movie or something.

Recently it even starts to open when i am playing a game, this is even more annoying as I loose all info from the game i was trying to play.

I asked my local xbox expert and he has never heard of such an issue.

Does anyone have a clue in this matter. Should I send in the xbox for repair?

Your help is very much appreciated.

Hi Leon, I have read this on the forum from a support member. They say to unplug the power to the console. Then tap on the disc eject button and the power button. Then take a soft cloth and wipe the eject and power buttons to clean any finger oils that can accumulate over time. Then plug the power back in and see what happens. Hope that helps bro.
