In your Utilities folder, find Terminal and open it.
In the Terminal window, type
and press the Return key. This will force the eject mechanism to cycle whether it detects a disc in the drive or not.
If the disc is jammed in the drive it may remain jammed, but at least this will force the eject mechanism to operate.
I tried and it that cycled the eject. I think its physically jammed. I think I'm stuck bringing it in to have a tech remove the jammed cd/dvd as rkaufmann87 recommended. Thanks to both for advice.
**I tried one last time using a Youtube video as guide and the terminal command and was able to pry it out using both. Thanks.
