You can try to force it in/out but will risk possibly damaging the unit.

Can you take a picture?

The battery release button is stuck in the open position will not move at all.  The back of the battery is flush with the computer, the side by the release button has a lip all alone the side. (about 1/32nd)  Should I try to insert something in the side with the lip and pry on it?  Stan

I had this happen once and used a thin knife blade to carefully pry the battery moving along the edge slowly and nudging the battery till it released. It will scar the plastic if you do not work slowly & carefully.
