Re: Changer won't acknowledge discs
Hi make sure that you cart is inserted all the way in, push the eject button why hitting the mag with the handle of ascrew driver. this may dislodge the jammed arm/lever. otherwise its down to your repair agent.

A couple of different possibilities here but this is a typical problem when it comes to the MB cd changers. Before ruling the cd changer bad, check the spring settings on the sides of the changer. Make sure they are in the 'H' position since it sits in the glovebox. The Mercedes cd changers don't have a reset button. 95% of the time its the cd changer that is bad when this scenario happens. Its caused by a linkage that gets knocked out of place internally of the cd changer. Also try not to use burned or homemade cd's as they can also cause the cd changer not to read the discs anymore.If your cd changer is brand new or a factory rebuild then the dealer should change it out no problem since MB cd changers are known for this problem. Also the version coding needs to done to configure the D2B fiber optic ring properly.
sounds like the tray inside was misaligned when the cd went in. and it probally sent the disc into a occupied slot. you will have to remove radio and disassemble to repair. also try just unpluging radio and plug back in. sometimes it resets the radio and will start ejecting the cds
It's not a fuse. More than likely it tried to load 2 discs into the same slot and jammed. That's one of the most common problems with shangers. If you pull the unit out of the vehicle and open the top you will see how it's jammed. Lightly move the CD towards the tray side, not into the cartridge, then plug the unit back in. It will reset itself and then you can eject the cartridge. Then inspect the cartridge for warps or cracks. You may want to replace the cartridge, they do wear out. Also, a good habit is to run a Laser lens cleaner thru the unit itself 3 or 4 times a year to keep the lens clean. It's really the only maintanance you can do. Hope this helps
Clean the unit if possible. does the cartridge eject? if so, load it with a cd player cleaner, preferrably one that uses a cleaning solution. put it in tray slot 1. load and wait. try this a few times then try a good disc, one that is not scratched up. changers are hard on cd's. If it's still not working, below the cartridge slot there should be an inverted dimple that you can press with a ball point pen. This is a reset. It should have this button, I just can't remember the exact location if it's not right there. Hope this helps. If you have a spare cartridge try that as well, as they warp.
