Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
If it won't open, turn off the console and remove the faceplate and try to eject the button. if it still won't open get a paper clip and straighten it out. you need to locate a small hole that exactly fits a straightened paper clip. it's located just below the silver lining of the disc tray about one and a half (1 1/2") inch from the left side of the disc tray. insert the paper clip into that hole and it should pop up the disc tray enough for you to be able to pull the disc tray all the way.
if it doesn't work there are still 2 more small holes that you can locate. the 2nd one is just beside the first hole and the 3rd one is just under the second X on the XBOX 360 text on the disc tray. try those two holes if the first hole doesn't work.

Unfortunately thats not covered by microsofts warranty but i have a solution because my xbox 360 does the same thing. its a hassle but when you want to open the disc tray you have to take the faceplate off and then when you hit the open disk tray button gently pull on it to help it open.

From what you have said it sounds like you have the DISK DRIVE READ ERROR
The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.
You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.
To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a GOOD REPAIR GUIDE, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.
I used Gamer Fix to get the best guides
The other solution would be to send the console off to its manufacturer, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $150
