I've read here about people figuring this out and fixing the units.
Without remembering much of the details, it seems that they lubricated
something after they got the CD & cartridge out of the player.

If nothing else works, this web page gives information on how to locate
another CD Changer on eBay.  The critical, unobtainable, part is the
adapter box fastened to the underside of the CD changer.  The CD changer
itself is a Sony model that is the same as used in other applications 
and you can find them pretty cheap on eBay.
