    The drive should have an emergency hole to open it,the size if a paper clip.
    Proceed carefully.The disk is probably not lying flat.

    Is the CD drawer completely closed or is the drawer partially open?

    Tried what? Use a paperclip. Uncurl it. Insert it into the little hole. Push hard and when the tray begins to open, force it open carefully and retrieve the CD. This is not rocket science, just do it

    As Tmagic650 was saying, you have to use a bit of force since the CD might be jammed. Did you and still no success?

    The only other thing to do is to remove the 4 screws out of the bottom of the player and remove the case cover. You can access the CD from the top. This way, you may be able to realign the CD in it's caddy or tray, and then open the front properly
