Turn off the recorder unit at the wall.

Press and hold the EJECT button on the unit whilst connecting the wall power again.

Continue holding the eject button for a minute.

Let me know if that forces the disc tray to eject?

NO it is still won't open
Electronics Technician: Pete, Engineer replied 8 months ago

In that case the mechanism may have jammed or a disc may be stuck inside.

The only option is manually opening it by disassembling the recorder.
