My tray was also sticking but I managed to solve the problem. I can also tell you why slapping the unit worked.
The reason that it sticks (at least in my case) is that the magnet which holds the reading head upwards becomes stronger with use. Thus the reading head will not go down to its place and the tray can't slide out. When you slap the unit the magnet lets the reading head fall down and the tray opens.
I solved my problem by taking the dvd recorder apart (taking note of how I dismantled it so as to reassemble afterwards). When disassembled I put some tape (electrical tape as it is a bit thicker) over the magnet. This weakened the strength of the magnet and allowed the tray to open normally. It makes some noise when reading the dvd, but the tray always opens and I can read and burn dvd's once again with no harm done.

You have 2 choices here, you can either submit the unit to an authorised service centre (or similar), obtain a quote on the likely cause(s) of the problem (which to me sounds like the digital control circuit has failed partially to the DVD deck and/or corrupt firmware which is not possible to upgrade), the potential costs involved, and so on, you can then make a decision based on the unit's age and overall condition as to whether it's economical to repair or not. The point is, the unit is repairable, but it could prove expensive.
The other option you have, is to keep the unit as a VCR (which is cheaper than repair to the DVD), and later on, buy a new DVD player/recorder (as required). The cost of the repairs to your existing unit vs. buying a new one could be significant. Up to you.
Personally, does the DVD deck play any shop-bought movies? If not, don't bother getting it repaired. Buy a new unit (but keep your existing unit as a VCR while it works).
