Q: Alpine 5 Disk CD Player Stopped Working on 2002 Lincoln LS

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I own a 2002 Lincoln LS that still has the manufacture's cd player in it (5 disk). About 6 months ago it started telling me there was an "error" whenever I would eject a cd to put in a new one in but it would stay accept the cd after a few attempts. It only did this off and on, now it just stopped working completely and only the radio works. Does anyone else have this problem? And is it worth it having it fixed\checked out or should I just install another player in it?

At the Dealership, we just remove and replace the whole unit and send the defective one to the factory for an overhaul. That is what seems to work.
I would compare prices to a rebuilt factory unit and a new aftermarket unit. You could most likely use the same speakers etc.
