CD-ROM door stuck

My CD-ROM door won't open. I hit the tray one day while it was open, but then I shut it. The next time I pushed the button to open it, the light started blinking and I heard three clicking noises. Everytime I've tried to open it since then, the same has happened. I've restarted my computer and everything. It has been several weeks. Does anyone know the solution besides ripping my computer apart?
Thanks!

1. Straighten a paper clip.
2. Insert end of clip into small hole under tray and press lever while pressing "open" button.
3. Presto!

This is only a temporary fix, and the drive should be replaced if it persists in sticking.
