Get a stronger paperclip, or go toy our local hardware store and get a steel rod.

Get a butter knife, jam it right under the tray. Press the eject button then when you hear the motor take the knife out. Tray should pop out.I have to do this if there's no disc in the tray. Keep in mind when sticking the knife if it should not go more than about 2-3 millimeters. Just the tip lol. Also forgot to add the Face plate should be off.

i usually try to aim for the center, may be off set a little closer to where it says xbox 360. Oh and for the knife size a normal standard butter knife should do the trick, dunno if they come in diffrent sizies or not. Usally there a little on the thick side.

I've heard of this problem. Is it exclusive to the old model 360s? Anyway, not sure if true but I've heard that leaving a disc in the tray at all times (even when XBOX is off) helps to prevent this issue.

I've always had a disc in the tray (in my ps3 and 360) whenever they're off.
