NAV turning on and off affecting radio play

Hi E65/E66ers,

Recently I noticed that my NAV would flicker and then turn off and come back on. When it turns off, so does my radio. So i went to the back of the car and noticed the the unit actually never turns off and just keeps spinning the disk. And I can't eject the disk, it seems to be stuck. It's the older CD not DVD unit which I planned to upgrade it anyway but it's annoying that it's not working now...

This morning I disconnected the NAV unit and now my iDrive is not working and neither is the radio. Is this right? I did notice that there are some fiber optics connection that stayed on so I figured there's some kind of "check and balances" thing going on with the system. Since the NAV is not there maybe it shut everything down?

Can I bypass the NAV to get the radio and iDrive working again?

Thanks in advance for your help!
