CD changer was playing CD then suddenly reported on screen "No CD Magazine" now magazine will no eject and all CDs are stuck.
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.
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
After playing music for about 30 minutes the CD changer stopped working and the screen at the console reads "No CD Magazine."
my cd changer sometimes works sometimes it doesnt. sometimes it doesnt recognize the cd installed in one of the compartments, its random.
