Are you sure there isn't cd stuck in it? My old vehicle had this happen. I pushed eject and nothing happened. I had to take it out and take it apart to get it out. I think the cd had something sticky on it so it stuck to the spindle.

I'd check if there is anything stuck in there too. My dads gmc envoy has had a CD stuck in the radio for over a year Hit eject and it just makes a clicking noise and then says "check cd"

The aftermarket JVC unit in my Grand Am had an issue like that. A piece that road a worm gear was worn. I was able to fix with a little epoxy glue. Not a simple fix (ripping the unit apart was quite the puzzle).
