I got an "error" notation on the screen. Since then, I cannot even access the CD changer. It is an AM/FM/CD/XM unit. Have had no problems till now - dealer just wants to pull it out and sell me another one. It is out of warranty.
I don't have a solution, but the same thing happened to my car. I have a 2007 Honda Accord with a 6 disc cd player and it is reading "Mechanical Error" and it won't work and all my cds are stuck in there.
Can't say it's a fix, but a temporary solution I found allowed me to at least play the cd's that are stuck in mine. I found that if I get something thin enough to stick in the cd loading slot (I used a thick key card but seems like another cd could work too) I was able to push the cd that it was trying to eject back into the player. Once the cd is settled back in it's normal position, it will play and cycle through cd's normally. It now functions normally unless I try to eject or load cd's. Hope this helps.

Actualy, I don't have any idea why your 6 ddisk CD Changer is not loading but my best advice: dispose of your multiple disk palyer. It's a "better mousetrap". Just install an XM radio or an MP3 player. In my car, I listen a 4 Gb pendrive with about 800 music files Last time I was in the US I rented a car with XM and hadn't even needed to touch the radio from Miami to Jacksonville.
absolutely no idea ,do you have anything else plugged in that could cause the sound cut off although you say the radio works?or has a plug come loose in the back of the radio ,you could try one of them radio fitting centres as you never know some young lad comes out presses a button and it all works as you had the mute on or something but the radio works ,is it a built in cd player or a remote unit ? in my time a 8 track was the in thing these modern things are welll beyond your ancient dinasaur here .
Try pulling the fuse for the cd changer with the ignition on, and then plug it back in. If you are lucky you might reset the unit, otherwise the changer will likely need removed sent in for repair or replacement.
The fault is actually inside the CD changer, when one disc is selected the changer moves the gearing inside to slot from one CD to the other. While this operation is happening the selection arm jams !! Then giving an error at the radio display..
To fix the problem, disconnect the CD changer from the trunk of the car, take off the top plastic slide cover, with a small screwdriver slowly move the gearing so that the CD disc holder will move back to the load - unload position.
Pop out the CD holder.
Replace unit, reconnect the optic and power lead, switch on radio and the unit will work again,
