    Prior to this event, it did give me the RROD. When i got the rings I turned it off. Now every time I turn it on the light turns on (green) for a second and than turns right off. I cant power it up.

Xbox is fine but doesnt read the game disc

This is a common issue with the Xbox 360 console wherein it behaves as if no disc in the tray. This error is encountered due to a hardware failure in the system, probably the lens was not able to recognize the disc format since it was failing. You have to contact Microsoft Xbox support to have this fixed..
