Panasonic vdr-m30 dvd camcorder door stuck shut ... now what?

Borrowed friends Panasonic vdr-m30 dvd camcorder to watch video but now can't eject dvd. I press eject button and hear whirring sound and eject flashes on screen but nothing happens. Oh, by the way, the disc never played and I got a "no disk" message on the screen so I think I may have inserted the disc wrong way. Is there a magic button to push or do I have remove the plate around the door? Need help before she finds out and kills me. Thanks.

You can try to disassemble

You can try to disassemble the camcorder, but be very careful. Camcorders have a ton of small parts, and are very sensitive. You do this at your own risk.

Before you start taking it apart, think about this: If the disc is stuck in the camcorder, it was an accident, and could even be the camcorder's fault. If you break it while dissecting the camcorder, it's undoubtedly YOUR fault. I would recommend explaining to her what happened, and ask her how she'd like to proceed. She may even let you take it apart, and if you break it then, it's HER fault.

Think about it...
