OPTION 1
Not 100% clear on the question, but I recently started using my original Xbox again. The tray would not open. I was not willing to buy a new one or even take it in for repairs, being such an old system. So, knowing the risk, I used a butter knife to gently pry on the upper part of the tray. GENTLY. With some prying, and pressing the eject button a few times, I eventually got it to open. (took about ten minutes). Then I gently used my hands to pull the tray to open all the way, every time it re-opened partially. Now, it opens completely fine, with no need of any prying or pulling. My guess is MS just sucks at making hardware, and I do not recommend leaving a disc in. I suspect (at least for me) it's a time thing. Use the system often, it keeps the gears working properly. Stop use for a few months, it may need a reminder sort of speak.

OPTION 2
Take a paperclip, open it up, and slowly jam it in the little hole located a fraction of an inch below the disc tray, right where the design kinks inwards. It'll force it open in the even of a jam or broken eject button.

OPTION 3
Ha i had this same exact prolem. After hours of extended youtubing(heh),i found a way to unjam the drive with no tools or threat of damaging the inside of your system. Although people will say tapping on the top of your system works i have learned...it doesnt. This method is simple. So simple a toddler could do it. 1.) Press Eject. 2.) While system is trying to eject use your fingernails (DO NOT USE A TOOL IT COULD RUIN THE SYSTEM) and pull up on the tray. About as hard as you would if your window was stuck. 3.)it should open if you hold it long enough. 4.)repeat as needed.

HOPE THIS HELPED!
