Open up the console, and clean the DVD Drive lens with some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. Then put the console back together. If you're uncomfortable with doing that, then either get a friend to do it for you or send the console in to Microsoft for repair.

My 360 is/was having a similar 360 would say "reading disc" then "open tray". Well since my system is only about 8 months old...I opted to send it in for repair. Its under warranty. My system is in route to be fixed as we speak. I would advise you to get yours registered too.
