So I did a search and couldn't find anything, My xbox won't stop turning on, After I try to turn it off it turns on again,

Right before that it started to eject the dvd, and then suck it back in, continously. Then I turned it off and it powered right back on,

There isn't a mod chip in it.
Tried changing the power supply, to no avail.
Changed the dvd cable in it

I don't really know what else to try, anyone else have a problem like this? And were you able to fix it?

It's not the power eject, but it does look like there is something between some of the video encoder chips legs, Hopefully cleaning that up will wrk

Sometimes when you take it apart and put it back together the solder points sticking out of the power/eject switch touch the metal shielding, try taking the front off and put a couple strips of electrical tape across the connections, and try to power it up with the face pulled foward.
