I close my tray with a game in it my xbox would read any game my xbox said open tray

I had the same problem with one of my games. It's probably just not reading the disk because of scratches or other damage. If it happens with every game you try then it's a problem with the sensor in the disk tray.

My x box 360 keeps saying open tray when a game is in there i open it and it says reading then i keep doing it and it does the same thing

I'll assume you're using xbox 360 games.
The disk is probably scratched.
Go clean it.
PS: Don't rub toothpaste into the scratches, someone did that to one of my games when he went to clean it. Only made it worse.

XBOX 360 "Open Tray " message

Your CD/DVD drive has failed mechanically. Usually this is a physical problem where the disc is simply no longer in alignment with the laser. It does not necessarily mean something will make noise, and can be just one small part slightly bent or broken so the disk now moves freely top to bottom.

If you can do a warranty repair, you're set. But if you are no longer under warranty, you only have two options. you can try and replace the drive, which although odd shaped; I think is just a standard IDE drive, or you can shift the XBOX 90 degrees to Re-orient the box. In some cases this may let gravity hold in place what the internal mechanisms no longer are.

System will not read disk. keep getting open tray

Your system can possibly be dusty inside or the disk may be scratched real bad. Buy a keyboard airbrush can and spray the air inside to see if you can clean it.

Turns off disk

First of all, get some toothpaste and a soft rag, try cleaning the disk thouroughly, sometimes the scratches on the disk can be so small that they aren't too visible, with this cleaning, you can fill these tiny scratches and allow the disk to work perfectly. If this does not fix your problem, take a Q-tip and run it along the inside of the disk tray while open, if you brush the bottom very gently you can successfully clean the eye that reads your disks of any dust and or obstructions.

Hope this helps :)

My disks dont read. my xbox 360 read the disks fr a few secs then it says open tray

Look carefully at the disc check to see if there are any "fatal" scratches. Some scratches to close to the center of the disc preventing the system form reading the volume information.
