So I've started to have the issue stated within the subject matter line:
My xbox 360 will constantly turn itself on when the power is connected and will rapidly open and close the disc tray at random intervals. On top of this the Disc tray open/close button on the console and the power button are both completely unresponsive. While the system is on, there is also no controller connected (a.k.a. no light indicating a connected controller)
I have researched this issue both within the xbox official forums I now am submitting a post on and in outside forums to try and find some kind of solution. While others have had similar issues, the answers given were either ridiculous or did not apply to my situation.
here are a few more facts:
1 - I've disconnected the power from the console and have waited several hours before connecting power again. Same issue occurred after power was connected.
2 - I do have wireless controllers, however all batteries are dead and I use them as wired controllers. On top of this, as mentioned, when the system is on, there is no indication of a controller connected either.
3 - I have a guitar hero guitar, however it is the wired version from Guitar hero 2.
4 - I have had this system for several years so far without any single incident like this.
5 - the system is as clean as it can be so there is no obstruction/dust touching the buttons.
6 - No pets or humans (unless specifically turning it on for a game) go near the system, so "accidentally" bumping the button is out of the question, especially since this problem persists when I am standing alone in front of the system.
7 - I have the latest updates as far as I'm concerned.
8 - There is nothing connected to it that may trigger it to remain/turn on
9 - I do not have background downloads active (since the problem only started today and not when I last changed settings)
The only thing that has transpired today that is out of the ordinary is the installation of Bell FibeTV in the house as well as the upgrade to their latest modem/wireless router.
I have read online that perhaps there is wireless interference happening, but where? and how could I fix it if there were?
Any help would be appreciated as this is quite a frustrating issue, especially since there is no concrete answer for this other than "send back to manufacturer"
