My new xbox 360 with kinect, the cd tray keeps opening and closing over and over by itself please help

If it is new, Microsoft will fix it under warrenty.

But.. sounds like the CD open button is stuck in.
The button on the case is a springy plastic lever extended to reach the button on the drive itself, inside the case.

If you plan on opening it (the case), you will need a special tool to avoid damage to the case, and you will void the warrenty.

Without a cd in it, try tapping the case on sides with finger tips or knuckles, and on the front of case next to button. Hopefully to allow button to pop out to normal position.

My 360 is not reading any discs

If your Xbox 360 is not reading discs this is because the sensors on the back of the drive have overheated, to fix it you need to send it in to Microsoft or you can fix it yourself with a good Xbox 360 Repair guide
