Factory CD player will not pull in CD

Hey guys... my low-mileage '93 Fleetwood has the factory stereo in it and it has the optional CD player, but it will not pull the CDs in. I guess its possible a CD is stuck in there, not sure. Can I basically write off this ever working again? The radio works fine, as does the cassette player. I suppose I could do like I do in my 95 Lincoln Town Car (that does not have the CD option) and just buy a portable CD player and play though the cassette player.

I would love to have the original CD player working though. Is there anyone that works on these?

*Also, what does one recommend to "oil" the power antenna with? I think someone once told me mineral oil?

Thanks for any advice!

Im sure Fred will have a stock CD player for sale, but to answer your question, i would say yes its done.

You can do a last ditch effort and disconnect/reconnect your battery and see if that helps the cd unit in resetting. A real swing and miss deal on that one.
