Let's get the CD out and see what it looks like. The unit may boot fine. If not let us know and we'll diagnose further.

If your CD is stuck and none of the other methods work, you might eventually try pulling out your optical drive and doing this: Optical Drive Disc Removal Technique

You could also try the

double sticky tape trick,

There's many reasons to fail POST however AFAIK a stuck CD is not one of them.
