Also check the disc magazine is properly inserted. If it’s not been used for a while it might need pushing in, then ejecting a couple of times.

I have the same combination exactly as you.
Just make sure your discs are in the right way round, the magazine clicks into place, and the door is closed on the changer.
Then on your unit you press the CC/CD button to activate the changer, then the square buttons along the bottom of the unit change the discs.
The wheel on the right of the unit goes between the tracks on the individual cd's.
Sorry if you know all this already!, just checking you have done everything you should, before going on to looking for a real fault.

If I get a long screwdriver and push the the little lever at front that fits the slot in the front of the cassette In the operating system the operating system tracks from front to back at each of what would be the 6 discs!but I can’t hear it doing that when I just push cassette in.probably a red herring! But thought I would mention it.

I know that they can be finicky, it could be it has just reached the end of its natural life span.
However lets not give up yet!
