One night i went over to put a new game in and after i put the disc in i pressed the eject/close button. Right after it closed, it ejected on its own. Every time i pressed close, from either the dashboard, or the console it will close and about a second later open on its own. No matter what i did it wouldn't stay shut. It closes, then opens and stays open. They only way it would stay shut is if the power cord was pulled right before it opened again. So pretty much i cant play any games now.
A lot of people have this problem. Before you post, look around.
Anyway, I was able to call xbox 360 customer support. We did the troubleshooting but it still would not work, so they took my xbox 360 in for repairs. I would not try to fix it on your own because it might negate the warranty.

Sometimes DVD player drawers get stuck closed because the disc inside isn't seated properly. At other times the player may have another problem. The first step in discovering if it is the disc or another issue is to remove the disc. Most DVD players have a secret eject button. It allows you to open the drawer when a disc gets stuck and cannot be ejected normally.
For this you'll need a standard size paperclip.
Unfold the paperclip and make it as straight as possible.
Look closely at your DVD player . Push the tip the paper clip into the small hole on the tray cover on the front of the Toshiba. The hole is on the right side of the cover.
Press inward gently with the paperclip until you feel a slight resistance, then continue pushing to engage the internal eject button. The tray should pop open partway.
Gently pull the drawer until it's fully retracted. Be careful not to pull too far.
Remove your disc from the drive.
Before you reinsert another disc, use the remote and/or buttons on the player to close the door, and reopen it. You can also press carefully with your fingers. If you cannot open/close the drawer normally at this point, do not put in a new disc until you have repaired the problem.
It looks like something is keeping the tray from closing all the way or the eject button is somehow being pressed when it closes. Open the tray and get a flash light to look inside to see if there is anything in there that shouldnt be (like maybe a disc that came loose from the tray and is still inside the xbox). If it looks all clear try holding down the eject button when putting the disc in. If that doesnt work try opening and closing it without a disc in. If it stays closed without a disc open and close it a couple times to be sure then try putting the disc in again. If that doesnt work try standing the xbox up on its side and putting the disc in.
The disc tray does not eject when the OPEN/CLOSE button is pressed.
Follow the steps below to troubleshoot this issue. IMPORTANT: The
disc tray will not open while a disc is loading; this is normal
operation. If this is the case, wait until the disc is finished loading
before pressing the OPEN/CLOSE button to open the disc tray.
Make sure the disc tray is not locked; if necessary,
Perform a power reset.
Press and hold the POWER button for 10 seconds until the BD player turns off.
After the BD player turns off, press the POWER button again to turn it back on.
Attempt to open the disc tray by pressing the OPEN/CLOSE button on the front of the BD player.
If the disc tray still does not open and a disc is stuck inside, follow the steps below to force the disc tray to eject:
Turn off the BD player.
Turn the BD player back on.
Immediately after POWER ON is displayed, press the STOP button on the front of the player. IMPORTANT: Only use the STOP button on the front of the BD player. The remote control cannot be used for this operation. NOTES:
The disc tray should eject and the BD player will turn off. If it does not eject, repeat steps A-C.
It may be necessary to press the STOP button in step C two or three times.
If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required

Try these tips.....usually holding down the touchpad buttton while tapping the eject button during bootup works.
Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. ) If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.
Ok, I assume you have hit the eject button on the keyboard. Try dragging the CD icon on the desktop to the trash can. If that doesn't work, Shut down the computer and start up while holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Another option is to open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder. Another option is to Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Lastly if your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button. One of these should work.
Found this which may help (and will void your warrenty):
When you take the top cover off of the PS2, you can see where the Reset/Eject ribbon cable plugs into the system itself. Right next to and slightly below here are three wires with three tiny color-coded plug-ins attached. They are just pressed into place and have a tendency to work themselves out over time. And depending on which one came undone, the disc tray will either always want to stay closed or always want to stay open. Either way, the operation of the disc tray will be erratic and problematic.
So it's a matter of using a pair of needle-nosed pliers to grasp and make sure that all three of these tiny plug-ins are fully inserted into the slots where they belong. Sometimes it's even necessary to very slightly lift the PS2 out of the bottom half of it's shell to gain better access to them. After they're all clearly in place, then it's a good idea to use the same needle-nosed pliers to make sure that the ribbon cable did not slightly pull out of place from where it is plugged in as well, or the Reset/Eject buttons will not work.
After all this, you can put the PS2 back together and voila...you should be good to go!
