If it's not in vendor mode, and then looks like u shorted the tray status, you can check this with a multimeter on the pins and seeing read out between closed and open. If it is the later, then a replacement pcb will do yhe trick.

Worst case scenario is the short in the motherboard and connecting two points on the motherboard might do the trick.

Try the tray status first then report back.

If you're a noob at soldering please don't attempt this fix as you will probably end up making it worse than it already is. I can almost guarantee that the suggested fix will work as I have had a console with these symptoms, u only have 1 shot at it. If u tried flashing your drive and powering it with the Xbox, this is what could happen, I know coz I've done it in my noob days
