There should be a little hole on the DVD tray bezel or possibly around the edge. If you put the paper clip into the hole and poke around, it will partially release the tray and you should be able to gently pull the tray open.

First of all if it's just the fact that your DVD players tray won't open on your tv then you'll have to manually open it. Before you even attempt to try and pry the player open you would (the next time you can) find out where the tray gear is that opens and closes it. It would be the big black gear I assume. Once, you find that then you'd have to use a flat ridged object (like say a plastic knife) and slide it in and push on the gear until it opens. But, if you're having problems with playing the disc that's a whole different story. Other than that you could just buy a different TV. This time with a seperate dvd player. Those are easier to fix.

After working with my technolocically challenged mother on the phone for about an hour we found out that pushing the power button on the remote control and the stop button on the DVD player at the same time will unlock the DVD player. Hope this helps.
