If it's a single disc, there should still be a hole you can put a straightened paper clip in to manually trip the eject...
If it's a changer, or my memory has failed me and there's no hole, I have no clue... maybe disconnecting the head unit from standby power and reconnecting?

I had this issue before and here is the response I got from the DCX tech. Note that when I arrived at the dealership, he hit the eject button and it had magically begun working again.
He said that there are sensors in the head unit used to determine if there is the possibility of condensation on a disc, and the unit won't eject the disc if it believes those conditions are true. This keeps the unit from damaging your CD's. Could be a faulty sensor. Try ejecting your disc at a later time and see if it works.
well last night it wouldnt eject or play it...this morning it would play it but still not eject it....maybe when I go out after work it will eject it....Where is this hole for the paper clip...its not on the front of the head unit is it?
Mine did the same thing - ate it and kept it in its jaws for 3 days. I read this posting and went out to try a couple of the ideas but pressed the eject button first anyway and it spit it out at me like it tasted bad or was poisonous or something. I can't help but think the "sensing of moisture on the disc" is a load of crap. Most of the time it's dust and dirt that gets in these things and make them act up. I worked on the deck in a Chev cavalier once that did everything fine except eject the disc and it was because the flat cable inside the deck came disconnected on it's own but was touching just good enough to do all the other operations. Either way it's out now and I wil attempt to clean the head unit somehow before slipping another one into it - anyone have luck cleaning one of these a certain way or is there something I can go get that will clean it?????
