Glove box located CD changer flashing lights

Hello- I have a 2000 528i Sport. 120k miles. The CD changer is located in the glove compartment. It flashes red/green lights all along the front, and does not accept CDs. To be honest, it hasn't work since I bought it a year ago. However, I'd like to get it working. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like an aftermarket equalizer/booster?

Those Nakamichi glove box changers didn't last long, and were known to be unreliable.
