I had a similar problem

My wife bought me a router and I was unable to get the collet out of the shaft. I took the collet nut completely off and with a small flat blade screwdriver and hammer GENTLY tapped the side of the collet and it came out of the shaft. I put it all back together with a straight bit, routed a piece and when I tried to change the bit it was stuck again. Nothing I tried would get it out. Needless to say the router with bit still in it went back to Lowes and I bought a Porter Cable. Not sure if I can say what brand it was (starts with H) but the new Porter Cable has had no problems.
