SOURCE: READING DISC OPEN TRAY!!!!
I took a small coffee straw and put some liquid silicone in it and stuck it through the front disc tray carefully to the small engine in the back. Hold your finger over the back of the straw so that the liquid stays in until you are over the engine top.Then I put in a disc cleaning disc for about 10 sec and then put in saints row 2 and it hasn't said "open tray" for about two weeks and counting.....

I have had this happen about 3 times. The first time was when i figured out how to fix it. The 2nd and 3rd were temporary.(Just needed to be turned off for a moment) You need to shut the console off for atleast 15 minutes 10 at the lowest with everthing unplugged. I mean the hard drive, memory unit, and all cables, and adapters. Then after 10-15 minutes plug everything in and DON'T PRESS the BUTTONS ON THE XBOX OR THE CONTROLLERS. Press the button to open the tray and take out the game or dvd and put in a different one. If this doesn't work do it all over again and then put in a different game or dvd not the previous ones and turn on the console the same but then a soon as you get the disc in and closed in shut it off then open the tray and wait till you are at the main menu go into any program so you can't see it is reading and close the tray. If that doesn't work contact the xbox support line. Really hope this works for you.

The switch that indicates the drawer position is stuck. Look for something in the path of the drawer. It should be totally clean.

I had this problem 4 months.I bought disk, lense cleaner. Did not work.
OPEN TRAY CAME UP WHEN PLAYING EVERYTHING!!! I MEAN EVERYTHING.
Was about to scrap my box COMPLETELY
Listen I took my XBOX apart. cleaned the lense with rubbing alcohol. USED AIR DUSTER TO CLEAN THE INNER WORKINGS COMPLETELY.
THIS WILL VOID THE WARRANTY ON YOUR X BOX.
I DID NOT CARE N DID IT + my system works as if I bought it yesterday.
