Purchased a brand new xbox slim from gametop with built-in hard drive. the disc tray has already broken within a few months. it just keeps blinking forever and believes the disc tray is always opening. i have had too many xbox 360s break to count. I believe i know the solution to the millions of people who have had broken xbox360s and the infamous red ring of death. = don’t store/play vertically The xbox should not be vertical! gravity causes the components to lose their alignment over time!–especially the laser or lens used to read the disc and see that it is indeed in place. you should never store it vertically even though it saves room. i realized all my friends who store it on its side have never had any problems. but like most of m’s products, they ultimately fail and break.
