Check for a "jammed" button. They use a little rubber membrane behind buttons and over time they do wear out. It is possible to push a button on the corner, make it shift enough to jam behind the faceplate & hard to see. Just push the button and see if it pops back like the rest of the buttons on the unit. If it still has a problem, post a comment and I will help you some more. Hope this helps
If you hold down the top and bottom buttons ( Think they are play / pause and the menu button down together ) for at least 5 seconds - obviously doing this when the lock slider switch is on the unlock position and it should do a hard reset and allow you to reset it.
If that does not help there are articles on the apple website which will walk you through how to reset it.
If you can do a hard reset via the menu and play / pause button ( holding them down for at least 5 to 10 seconds ) it should start to restart - when its restarting let go and it should request you to select a language and go from there.
the plastic push lock that holds the button is possibly broken, but hopefully the mechanism incorporated with the button has not been damaged because it was pushed too far.
to have this issue resolved, you may use something pointed to nudge the button from its place and free it from being stuck. Or you may remove the screws from the button, freeing the upper case from the lower case exposing the other side of the controls, so you can push the pause button out.

is there a tiny little hole you can insert a paperclip into around the front of the cd. if so use a large one if you have it , insert and press hard to eject. if not then you will need help. even if you get it out the eject motor belt is likely slipped or broken.
