    It's happened due to remastersys no longer making bootable live CD's on my system. There was no prompt just a black screen.
    How can I remove the CD without having to fight with the tray, or is force ejecting it the only way ?

    You can shut down the machine and on boot, eject it.
    I prefer that to using the pins.

    So hold down (press) eject button during boot-up ? Thanks.

    Yup, just once or twice.

    For example, some Linux live CDs do not eject CD when the live session ends.
    No worries, on next boot, I press the eject and the CD comes out. Simple and non-violent.
