You can try a DVD lens cleaner disc and see if it helps, if you post me the brand and model I will check on the software / firmware upgrade.

I have a Pioneer DVR-57H and I was playing a CD. While playing the CD I physically hit the eject button on the face of the unit and nothing happened. Now I can not either eject the disk or even play that...

Did you try unplugging the power to the unit, then holding the eject button while you plug in and power it back up? Sometimes this releaves the "Logic Lock" caused by a frozen process on DVR and DVD units.

Ice not friezing completly and then water forms ice on icemaker ejection blades causeing them to get stuck and will not turn to eject ice ?

could be the auto defrost timer is running too long you can not adjust it but before you start troble shooting it check the door seals carefully they are typicaly magnetic and some times get deformed some place you might not notice tell tale indicator is tiny ice crystals around the edge near the seal...a little hot water poured on the ice maker will typicaly dislodge that frozen block.. good luck... nothing worse than no ice after a long day at work :-)

W200 will not play any type disk say "disk error"

The only fix i've found for this (without replacing parts) is to turn the unit off and back on and it will read the cd.

Tape stuck in VCR, won't eject.

you posted 2 different problems here...
to answer this one ". The tape is stuck, won't eject and I'd like to get it out without damaging the VCR unit." unit, find motor that moves tape ejector and spin that motor by hand (power off)

the other problem, "the VCR will not insert a tape. It keeps rejecting it." unit and fully turn ejection motor until home position is reached...this is a home sensor switch not being activated.
