I have a 2005 Escalade with a 6 cd changer that stopped

Customer Question

I have a 2005 Escalade with a 6 cd changer that stopped working with cd's inside. There is power to it but the light indicators on the 6 buttons don't light up, only the back lights when the headlights are on. The cd operation window on the navigation screen is stuck on disc 2, track 10. Pushing any button on the screen does nothing. I did all the self checks I could find online but nothing fixed it. I bought a used 6 cd changer on ebay but the cd window the nav screen only gives a message about no disc player connected" or something like that, and also a cdx error. I'm wondering about the nav and radio not being compatible to the used cd player. Can you help?
JA: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?
Customer: The fuses were part of the self tests I got from online. What bulbs are you referring to?
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes. I have pulled all related fuses, checked and reinstalled. I have removed the cd changer and replaced with a used one purchased on ebay. The used one basically does the same thing.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: No.
