Optical Drive Problem

iBook G3 12" 900/256 combodrive.
Yesterday I stuck a CD in my combo drive.
I heard a rattling sort of noise. I checked and the CD seemed to be properly seated. Afterwards the eject wouldn't work and I used a paperclip.
On asking a friend he suggested there's a sort of feedback thing happening and it's making the lens holding thingy turn on and off quickly. I put a lens cleaning CD in but it wouldn't wind up. Today I just tried cleaning the lens with a dry Qtip, put a DVD in and closed the tray. Nothing happened except the screen froze, ie i couldn't move the cursor and even Force quit wouldn't work. I Force Power Offed and rebooted to send you this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated....thankyou
