If you can dare servicing youself You can open bottom cover of and turn a little red wheel manually. try pressing the release button now and will start working. If you have this problem re-accuring, then get it checked wih professional.
Our friend photosubba is just right. I've got a friend who has a D60, and I just fixed the same problem. Only else thing to do is to put a little (LITTLE) quantity of oil on it - be careful for excess of oil not to eventually get inside the deeper parts of the camera and leak onto otics or electric circuits.
