Get a paperclip and straighten it out. Look for a small pinhole on the door of your disc player. They all have one for emergency jams and such. Push the paperclip straight into the hole, about a half to an inch should do it. When it stops on something, push a tiny bit further until the door pops open.

Assuming this means the CD drive rather than the Hard Drive (which doesn't normally have a link to the outside world).......
Unless something from outside is very obviously fouling the door, the problem is probably internal to the drive. With the price of replacement drives these days (shockingly low), I wouldn't even bother opening the drive to investigate what's wrong - I'd just put a new (probably higher spec) one in.
They're all a standard size and fitting and fitting a replacement is a "no surprises" job.
There may be a hole but it will be under the lip of the door, kind of impossible to get to. You may have to remove the drive from the emachine and unscrew it and open it manually with a small screwdriver. I regularly buy and repair or use parts from used samsung drives which is what emachines uses almost exclusively. The only upside to this is that once open, you can swap the faceplates and doors onto newer drives. If the led light is not in the middle then you can swap out the little plug in circuit too.
