x box dvd drive opens/closes without stopping

My 4 y.o. xbox dvd stuck. I followed instructions on releasing the drive, now it  opens/closes/opens/closes..... incessantly. So, can't use the xbox now. Any suggestions beyond replacing the drive (Or getting a new xbox) ?

Unplugging the drive, and thus cutting the power to it will stop it from doing anything. If its a standard DVD unit its pretty cheap to replace now. Probably its a pretty easy procedure all that stuff is modular meaning its components that you just unplug and replace.
