Free60, you are most likely looking at a laser fault which is the most common cause of the “open tray” error and can sometimes also display the “unrecognized disk” error.

This is not definitive though, either flash it back to stock and test original games on it (this should isolate the problem to either a laser problem or a firmware/burn problem) or attempt the laser replacement yourself (or get a repair place to do it). One thing though, you don’t wanna go the cheap route when getting a new laser or you will be finding that it will not last long and is most likely a second hand one. I suggest a shop that specializes in console parts like http://www.modsupplier.com or something of the sort based in your country.

Good luck!
