Exclamation NAV/radio/CD changer help needed

My 01 thru the years has a gremlin in it. For the past several years I would switch to CD and occasionally get an error. To resolve I would have to eject the 6 disk changer and put it back in sometimes it wouldn't eject but then weeks later it would. Last summer my 4:3 screen would just freeze in place. Recently I took apart my changer and manually moved a gear to eject my cartridge and my cd changer worked again for a few weeks. Sadly now it s broke again. While trying to troubleshoot the system I pulled the nav system and when I pull the cable I see the monitor turn on and off so if it freezes does that mean my NAV system is fried can I just EBAY one? Also should I just eBay a changer because now when I put in the cartridge it doesn't even cycle thru the disks anymore. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I can replace both for under 400 just don't want to throw money at something that might not be the issue........ I wish I knew someone with another BMW in my area(Austin) that I could swap the part on just to know what I needed to replace!

Exclamation

Additional info when staring at the back of the MKII nav unit I notice the fan never comes on. I took a can of computer air and blew out the back and holes that I could find, then plugged it back in and the screen didn't freeze for about a min, but the fan never came on in the back of the NAV unit then the screen froze. I am tempted to open up and blow out the unit but if the fan is bad that really won't help me.... Should the fan be coming on???
