Exclamation Has anyone had this xbox360 problem?

Out of the series of problems i've had with the 360 one stood out the most.
The disc tray would open and close automatically, even when the power was turned off. i had to unplug it from the wall to stop it. its was freaky because the system would spontaniously start up on its own or randomly open the disc tray. Me and my friend were luaghing at it when it went into some episode where it repeatedly opened and closed the disc tray in a violent "the excorcist" manor. LOL.

Anyone else have this problem?

360s are loud, break down easy, and scratch themselves?

Sounds kinda Emo to me.

Yeah they also complain alot.
I'm getting too hot.
I have the red ring of death.
I cant read the disc.

The system should just kill itself.
Too bad more of them sprout up everyday.

This is way too similair to the emos

Loud? Yeah, it gets pretty loud when you play a disc game. It's otherwise rather quiet, though. And they do tend to get the "RRoD" problem a lot, but Microsoft covers this problem for 3 years after you purchase it, so you don't have a lot to worry about there except for what you're going to do while you wait to get your 360 back. They also give you a free month of Xbox Live Gold when they send your console back.

But 360s do NOT scratch the game discs by simply playing them. It only happens if you move the console while it's trying to read a disc, and if you do that, it's your own fault, not Microsoft's. Why would you move the console once you've started playing anyway?

Ehem... I wasn't 360 bashing, just making a joke about Emos.

360's are loud

Yeah i have this problem with the disc tray! really, really annoying but i still enjoy my 360 and have never had the red rings! *touch wood* To the people above i dont understand why people always seem to bad mouth 360 and PS3. So what if one cant make a perfect noise and the other doesnt have as many good exclusives, they both do a hell of a good job at bringing out enjoyment. At least neither of them have resulted to a family friendly console like the wii lol
