Ok, then I would suggest that you unscrew the lid of the player and open it up. The doors/trays on these players are controlled by a series of nylon gears that can occasionally become out of sync or worse, strip the teeth.

While you have the lid off, take a look to see if any wires or ribbon cables have become loose or disconnected.

The lid will be held on by 6 or 8 screws. 2 on each side and a few on the back. You are going to have to undo thise screws and lift off the lid.
