Ok i was opening my consoles disk tray and i had noticed that at times the tray would close by itself and when it did the green blinking light kept blinking until it shut. i just so happened to be putting in a disc when the tray closed itself and i prevented it from doing so, but now that i have done that i cannot open the tray manually (by pressing the open tray icon or eject button on the actual console) nor will my 360 read discs any more. what am i to do? my console on a side note is the elite, not sure if that helps at all.

Try slowly opening it with a flathead screwdriver. Get the tray open enough to put ur pinky in and try to remove any disk(s) that are in there. Plug it in and turn it on. If the tray closes ur system should be ok and try to open it with the button. If no good. Then try agian, but this time slowly open it all or most the way, then plug it in and let the drawer close and see if the button works to open and close it.
This is ussaly caused by a jam from either a incorrectly inserted disk and it jammed the tray. Or the gearing that is connected to the motors jamed up and the tray needed to be moved out to unlock the jam.
Closing the tray with ur hand and not pressing the button to close it also could of caused this problem
If you ever open the disk tray and then the power source is cut, the tray will try to ''autofix'' itself by making whatever state it was at the default position. This doesnt sound like whats going on for you, though.
If you can turn your 360 on and go to the main screen, try opening it with the ''open tray'' button on the bottom of the main screen.
If that fixes it, your problem is a faulty disk tray button.
If the tray still does that with the xbox main menu button, then its a mechanical thing with the tray.
Go to walmart and buy one of those air spray bottles (like an airsol can to clean dust out of PCs) and spray it into the 360 tray once it is opened. Aim the spray on the sides, what it sounds like is dust or something collected on the gears of the disc tray. If you have your 360 on carpet or a dusty surface this is probobly the problem.
Thats about the only thing you can do without opening the 360 up yourself (IF ITS STILL UNDER WARRANTY DONT OPEN IT) that will void the warranty. So if the airsol spray doesnt do it, then send it in to microsoft.
