Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the radio does otherwise work normally then you know it's power and ground feeds are present and the problem has to be an internal failure. If the radio didn't work at all then a loss of power or ground could be the cause, but lack of the CD changer only could only be an internal failure. If a battery disconnect didn't help then the unit will either need to be replaced or sent out to somewhere such as United Radio for repair.
