Take a paper clip. In every cd/dvd rom there is a very small hole on the front plate. You would probably never notice it. Stick the paper clip into the hole and the tray will open. Maybe you have a stuck cd in there. Hopefully it will work after that on it's own again.
Is the light on it working?
You didn't say if you have a pc tower or a lap top as further trouble shooting will require knowing this.

Dell cd drive door won't open


CD/DVD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

Cd drive won't open


Sometimes a bad disc can cause this. You can stick a paper clip in the hole by the eject button to open it. If it isn't opening with the button though I'd replace the drive.

Disc drive won't open


CD/DVD drive?

Some have a tiny hole, right under the tray that comes out. Use a paperclip in the hole to manually open the tray.

(Some desktop computer towers have a door in front, that needs to be eased open first, then access to the actual CD/DVD drive unit can be obtained)

What's your problem? cd drive won't open


if you have warranty - contact the repair center, if not, open the case and check if the power plug of the Cd/DVD drive is all the way in. unplug it an then plug it back in again.
If that doesn't help - buy a new drive. they are like 30$ nowdays and install it the same way in like the one that doesn't work was installed.
