2005 c-230 CD player not working
My cd player stopped working on my 2005 c230. There is a cd stuck in there. The radio works fine. The system does recognize a disc in there, as it says 'track 1' when i press play and 'ejecting' when i hit eject, but the 'motor' doesn't seem to run. (disc doesn't spin or move). it's like power isn't getting to it or something. Any clues? I've called the dealer and of course first answer is that I need a whole new unit at $1200. I guess this comes to my second question. I've seen 'used' radio/cd units on the internet (from scrap yards). Is it as simple as buying a used one and replacing it? Obviously the cost is WAY less. Or will I have trouble with radio codes and such? thanks!
