business radio broken... any solutions?

Soooo, I've had a cd stuck in my business radio for a few months now and I sort of just left it because I did not want to mess with the stereo....
Well, yesterday after reading and reading about how to DIY... I tried.. and I removed it after popping the trim off.. easy.

Well, as I was pulling the cd out, which was a pain in the ass because of the two metal clips... The 'face' of the stereo came off... and that little 'tag' thing that looks really important came out...
and now....... after putting everyhing back it will not work,or turn on nothing....

Am i totally screwed and need to replace the radio or is there a solution to this...

If you have to replace it, I got mine from Christy BMW nearly 4 years ago and it's still working. They sell a lot on fleabay.
