Is the cd changer powering up and trying to operate at all?
Has anything been checked/tested or replaced trying to locate or repair this issue here at all?

O.k.,just to be sure as I show some options on this model here.Your vehicle has the separate cd changer separate from the radio am I correct?
O.k.,I just wanted to make sure as some of these had a separate cd changer external of the radio itself.
The fault you have here is due to an internal mechanical fault with the cd tray loading mechanism which is common.When the radio sees this issue when you are attempting to load or eject a cd the display goes blank.This is a common issue.
To correct this here unfortunately the radio either needs removed and sent in for repair through a dealer to their repair center or removed and replaced.The cost can vary as it all depends on dealer pricing.
You can try and find a used radio/head unit to replace it with.I use a place called http://www.car-part.com to locate used hard to find parts like this here.It can be cheaper and they usually ship to your door.Your local dealer would have to program it to work in your vehicle though and can charge around an hours labor for this.

No,the bezel comes free from the radio itself so it can stay with the vehicle as shown here.
