You've checked for a CD stuck inside?
If you've checked all connections, and tried multiple CDs with no luck then there is a good chance it has died.
Easiest test is to swap one out with a friends or something and see if it works.
While they seem to die pretty quickly, on the bright side the replacement cost is dropping while the speed is increasing.
Good luck!
