There is a recall that Nissan issued on March of 2010 for this issue. It impacted 340,000 vehicles. Here is the link to the recall information. I would recommend subscribing to the nissanforum as well. There is a lot of useful information from other Nissan Armada owners, problems, fixes, etc...... http://www.autorecalls.us/aut-04/recalls/2005/nissan/armada/13695.html
Had same problem wit my 4 disk. A CD was jammed. Remove and open the unit up and remove the CD. The mechinizem might be jammed also. Try this before replacing. Seems like a common issue with these units. The newer 300Ms came with 6 disk changers.. not sure if these will work with the existing radio.
You need some special tools which slot in to the holes at the sides of the stereo, they release some clips and the unit slides out. Then you can take the cover off the unit and remove the jammed CD. These units are notorious for failure, especially the six disc stackers, and are probably not worth repairing, can be more expensive to repair than fitting a decent aftermarket cd player. Most audio installers or your local Ford dealer will have the tools to remove the unit, and if you just want the radio, you could remove the jammed cd and refit the stereo and just not use the cd player. You'll need to get the radio code from a Ford dealer to get the stereo going again if you disconnect and reconnect it. They may need the serial number off the unit to give that to you, and you may need to prove ownership of the vehicle.
