It sounds like your problem isn't the dvd is stuck, since it seems to be spinning up, it sounds more like your ejection system has stopped working for some reason.
To fix either you are going to have to remove the outside case of the dvd player and expose the internal chassis. There are anywhere from 4 to 8 screws holding it on on the bottom and back of the unit, Make sure the dvd player is unplugged before you remove the cover.
Once you have the cover off, if the dvd is simply stuck, you should be able to see what the issue is; is it misaligned in the housing was it inserted incorrectly, are there in fact 2 dvds in the player, etc, etc. Gently remove the dvd and replace the case and enjoy.
If you can't see any reason for it to be stuck it may be the ejection system. The eject system will have a belt and sprocket system to move the tray or push out the dvd depending on the player. Make sure the belt is on the wheels correctly and that the sprockets mesh properly. If you can't see anything wrong try testing the ejection system with the case off.
Make sure you don't have any objects in or touching the dvd player, you don't want to short out any of the components if a screw fell into the dvd player onto the mother board, etc. Plug the dvd player back in, make sure you don't touch the inside and try to eject the dvd. Watch the ejection system and you should be able to figure out what is going wrong. Once you have figured it out unplug the unit and put the items back together. If you can see that something is broken then you will have to determine if you can have it fixed or if it wouldn't be cheaper to simply ditch that unit and purchase a new one.
Hope this helps.
Most DVD players have a tiny hole on the front to mechanically push the internals to eject stuck DVDs. If the player does light up, sometime a thump with your fist is enough to jolt the mechanism. Failing that, you have to remove the player to get the DVD out.
Power up and press open button as soon as it starts to spin, some dvds lock with read errors, some spit the disc out..
If the belt is worn open unit, remove tray and replace rubber belt, if you dont have one use a thick rubber band.
if you cant access rubber belt, most dvd's have a slide underneath. use a small screwdriver and manually slide it open.
Read errors are not always the laser...so dont go and waste money.
If your dvd is not hq using dc brushless motors, remove loader, give the spindle and sled motor a good lube with wd40, spin the spindle moto up with 5-7 volts to clean the commutator.
Carbon builds up and the motors dont spin at correct speed.
Sled remove drive gear, usually pops out and burn it clean as above.
I have had good results with above since 2004, repaired 1000's of dvd's over my 14 years as senior engineer for wholesale importer in cape town.

Hi, For some reason the disk will not play. You push the eject button over and over again, but the disk slot will not open. Here's one solution... * 1 Turn off the DVD player. Wait a few minutes, turn the DVD player back on, and then press the "eject" button. If this does not work, turn it off and unplug the DVD player...while you keep pushing EJECT button plug the DVD and turn it on (your hand still on the eject..) is should come out.. * 2 ..if it does not eject , unplug the DVD player again, Remove the screws off DVD on the sides and take off the DVD casing. * 3 Look for the DVD holder inside the DVD player. This device holds the DVD in place while the DVD player reads the disk. * 4 Push the stuck DVD disk toward the front of the DVD player until the DVD ejects. Remember the DVD player is not on and some force ( gentle ! ) must be applied. * 5 While it is open,plug it on and place a DVD disc just to see if mechanism works properly.. * 6 Replace the casing and the screws. Plug the player in and turn it on. Put another DVD in to test whether the player is finally working .. Hope this helps!..

Page 4-62 of the Owners Manual for my 2006 Quest has this procedure for a stuck DVD:
1. Record the radio presets 2. Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery for five minutes 3. Reconnect the negative battery terminal 4. Check to see if the jammed DVD has been ejected. If it has not, try to eject the DVD by pushing the eject button. 5. If the disc cannot be ejected see your Nissan dealer for further assistance 6. Re-program the radio presets
I have used this procedure on two occasions, and it works.
The Owners Manual also says that playing DVD-R and -RW disk might cause the player to player to malfunction.
answer - had the same issue turned out to be 3 dvds in it, Remove the 4 screws holding the dvd player to the roof. wire harness will hold it up. There is an fm transmitter on top held on by three screws. remove the little screws and push the transmitter to the side. you winn now see the stuck dvds. push the extras out with a small screw driver. once they are out the eject button will eject the last dvd.
just worked for me hope this helps.
