C320 - CD Player - "Magazine Empty"

I recently purchased a 2001 C320 sedan and when I go to try and play a CD, it reads "Magazine Empty". I have read several forums saying to blow in the CD player/magazine, take it out and be sure the wires are connected, and insert the magazine [empty] several times, THEN put in a CD and none of these have worked! It is mounted in the glove box and everything else works fine. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

I am pretty sure that it is not "broke" as it seems many people have problems with these so I would much rather try everything before I go into the dealer and they want to replace it.

Thanks for the advice!

Thanks for searching but you might not have read enough threads on this. If the connections are good and it is clean and lubricated, that's about all you can do. All of these seem to be problematic so you might need a new one. You don't have to buy it from a dealer, check the forum sponsors, dealers with online discount/wholesale divisions or ebay as a last resort.
