When i turn it on the middle light starts blinking like the trays opening, then goes straight to the dashboard (when the startup is normal it wont do this). then if i try and open the tray it wont open, and the xbox says the trays open. i dont know whats going on but its not looking too good... ill try and get a video up soon.

This usually can happen when it updates dashboard and your xbox gets a bad one. You could try to un-install that and redo it, or let it happen naturally by microsoft, Some say that microsoft in the new dashboard update has anti piracy software that goes wrong, and affects the xbox, but we don't know that to be true, the update could be the issue, and usually is, But there can be other issues too, if you still get all green lights on the xbox then the firmware or updates could be the cause and i would check that first.
sounds like the start of the blinking green light and the tray wont eject, if you decided to get into it try pulling out both leads to the disc drive check them for damage make them nice an straight blow sockets where they sit and replace them true.if they are damaged replace them, NOTE opening your 360 voids the warranty
it sounds like your dvd drive is dead if its still under warranty you should just send it back to microsoft the only other thing you could do is buy a replacement dvd drive and put it in yourself but only do that if microsoft wont take it or you'll void your warranty
You may need a new drive, but I doubt it. After you get the Xbox open, peel off the silver tape thats on the bottom front of the DVD player, unplug the 2 connections, and lift it out. Turn the player upside down and remove the 4 screws, flip it back over and make sure that the try is lined up correctly with the mechinism.
Getting to the dashboard screen is a good thing but still cannot rule out a bad circuit board or power supply.
All the symptoms point to a bad DVD drive but the opening/closing by itself do indicate a problem with the microprocessor.
Can you turn the power on and off with the small button?? If not, would definitely suspect bad board.
