This does happen with CD trays, it's quite common. I can't remember the exact mot common cause, but it's some worn out part, such as a small (plastic) cog wheel. Search on "cd tray won't open" on the internet to find a multitude of reasons, most to do with computer CD trays, but I guess the mechanism is essentially the same. These may also describe ways round the problem.
Some CD players have a small hole on the front near the tray into which poking a straightened out paperclip should enable you to open the tray by a few mm, enough to be able to pull it open in an emergency - but it's awkward to do on a frequent basis.

Remove the cover lid and look inside for anything jamming disk tray, problem may be very simple once you look at this. change out some of the cds.

Take the cover off and inspect for a jammed disc.

If there are no jammed discs you either have a broken belt or stripped gear.

You will have to take the unit apart and inspect, belts are commercially available from electronic stores and are a cheap easy fix!

Let me know if you need more details or guidance.

HI. the main board is ok. this is the actions of a malfunctioning optical lens assembly. the lens is unable to read, due to the damage to its structure or, the laser has burned out.

The main board is programed to issue the (no disk) alert if the lens doesn't relay audio data. simply replacing the failed optical lens assembly will fix this issue.

Try to hear a sound of of a running motor inside the unit. If you can hear it, the there's a broken or misplaced rubber belt. The belt drives the drawer open.
