CD Repair! notice

Hi all,
I have an older Sony HCD-MD5 home stereo system. It's an all-in-one CD/Cassette/mp3 system.
When I insert a cd a notice appears that says 'CD Repair!' (Exclamation point included).
The cd tray will not open. There was a cd in the unit but it has slid out via the small space at the top of the cd tray.
Everything on the unit works fine.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'd rather not have to take it in for repairs as the bench charge would be more than it's probably worth.
