My 360 does the same, I notice that if you place it horizontal the tray doesn't get stuck.

How to fix open tray error on xbox 360

The laser is setting in the wrong position and the disc is not being read. Try tapping on the xbox when you put a disc in it. If it's still under warranty, call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and send it back for repair.

When i put a game in my xbox 360 it says reading then open tray

I found a solution that works for me after a long period of time with this problem.

Get an air spray canister (just compressed air), open your Xbox's game tray, take the disc out, then spray the air along the tray, moving side to side inside the Xbox. You may want to spray into the vents, too, just to be sure.

This worked for me, and it was the only thing that worked for me. I had already tried hitting the console with the controller (gently), and doing the stuff Microsoft recommends etc.

If that doesn't work, you could try gently knocking the top of the Xbox with your conroller, when you put the disc in, as I've heard that works for some people.

Another thing that works for some people is taking the disc out, closing the tray, then when it goes to Open Tray, open the tray, put the disc back in and then closing the tray again.
