sounds like the ribbon cable is messed up which in return will somehow mess with the power traces on the ribbon cable or the connection that the cable goes into. its been a minute since I last messed with a slim but I am pretty sure you can take the ribbon cable off and try the disc drive then by the on-screen eject button and see if that fixes it. but send me a video so i can see what it's doing.

yeah that does seem strange and i have never seen that happen before but could either be the ribbon cable needs to be cleaned or the disk drive connections are somehow messed up. you can take apart the cover and get to the ribbon cable with just a flat head screwdriver but to get to the actual motherboard requires a Torx set

without taking it apart just run the console with the power cord unplug any USB drives and HDMI cord then insert the disc. but if the power brick has never been cleaned before same goes for the Xbox then yeah i would take it apart and get all the dust out.

check the HDMI port and look for bent pins or just blow in the port. worst comes to worst it would be something on the board that has failed.

it could cause a short circuit between the other pins in return the Xbox shuts off to protect its self you could try and bend it back in place and try again otherwise yeah a new HDMI cable. if there is a bent pin on the port on the Xbox you will have to bend it back or worst case is solder a new HDMI on the board.

where in the xbox is ribbon cable?
it's on the front panel of the console so when you take the shell off the front panel will be attached to a connector just carefully lift up the ribbon cable flap and pull it out. a youtube video will help you out.
