Most of the time there'll be a small hole just under the tray. Straighten out a paperclip or something similar and push it in the hole. This should manually force the tray out.

I find a paper clip is not strong enough, as one has to push quite hard.

Better to use the largest needle that will go in the hole.

On a laptop, the small hole may be on the front of the tray itself

Advise if successful.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
