Bought this car used with 36,000; never tried the changer until today; loaded the CD's but receive cdc error message, green button won't work and the cartridge won't eject. Just spent 45 minutes getting the cartridge out to rescue 6 cd's!

CD 3 appears to be stuck in the play position (tray is shifted to right). Display says "NO CD CHANGER" and the eject button isn't ejecting the magazine. I have tried to mechanically move the tray for CD 3 back into place, with no luck. I've also tried the credit card trick under the magazine, again no luck. I am going to attempt to remove it carefully, put all the trays back into position, and see what happens.
Unit stopped workin w/o warning.

I had the same problem. The radio wasn't recognizing the signal from the CD changer. There's a technical service bulletin out from MB. The solution suggests checking the 2 spring tension settings on the sides of the changer. The springs should be set on H for horizontal.

The changer locked up and would not play, the cartridge would not eject, for a while. and then it did, I then retrieved the cartridge and parked it in the dresser drawer. I never used it again and then I totaled the car a couple of months later
