The only way to release the tray is to take out the complete dvd player from it's base,if you attempt to do this make sure you remove the tray facia as this would stop the unit from being dis-mantled,there maybe a couple of clips on the underside of the tray or they may not just gently lever it  upwards once you have done this you can continue to dismantle the unit observing where all the cables goes,these are normally flat flexi  ribbon cables but take great care when pulling them out and when re-inserting them back.Once the unit is in hand if you look under the tray unit you will see a cam with a small flat screwdriver begin to move the cam c/w or c/c/w untill you see the tray open up,now you can remove your DVD.

Hope this helps
