this sounds like a gpu fault, or a laser read fault.
i,d return it to M$ for a replacement again, or alternatively look for a good 360 repair specialist in your area. you need the rrod kit, or a relacement dvd drive. i,d think more on the line of dvd laser if your getting no red-rings. don,t waste your money on a laser replacement, 9 times out of 10 they don,t work. go for a new drive, and have the drives logic board swapped.
you can find out about this on xbox forums, and tutorials.

My disxs will not read i have had this problem for about a week now i dont know what to do but i cant put up with it anymore it just keeps saying open tray then when i close it it does not read

Is this for all of your game disks or just a few?

Try taking a can of air and use it to free some of the dust in side your machine.

I had this problem once before and it was an indication that my Xbox was about to RROD.

Try the aid and let me know how it worked.

Disk dont read?????

You need to clean the disk. If it is clean just try to put the game in a couple more times then it might work. If you still have the reciet you can go to the game store where you bought it and they will replace it.

RROD comes on but it doesnt even attempt ti boot up

Do the fans turn on? The screws may just be shorting against the motherboard or it needs to have the GPU resoldered.
