Is anything stuck? The spring may have just become loose. You can take your trim off and try to play around with it. I have never had this problem but my rear seat ashtray didn't pop out anymore and I just had to reseat the spring. Same thing for one of the cup holders. They had very similar mechanisms.

Stuck penny in there. Search "stuck penny" there is a thread on how to pull the center console out and turn the ashtray upside down to get the coin out. I just did it last week its not hard at all, took me about 10 minutes.
