radio issues

Hey guys, just registered on the site, so yea, i'm a newbie. I'm some what of a well read newbie, as I usually snoop around the site as a guest, admiring the ability of members to address common problems.

With that said, I have a problem. I've done a search to see if it has been talked about previously, but couldn't find anything, so my apologies if this has been previously discussed.

Today out of no where my nav radio decided to stop responding to my selections. The display button (the one that lights orange next to the left knob) no longer lights up. When I push the mode button to alternate btwn radio, cd changer, or tape, nothing happens. I can still here the radio, by the screen shot on my nav unit doesnt show the radio stations anymore. It simply stays at the main menu screen, so I have to guess which radio station i'm listening to. The radio is the only thing I can listen to. I use the tape deck to play my ipod, and that now has no sound, along with the cd changer.

I checked the cd changer in the trunk to make sure no cables came loose, that didn't work. I didn't know what else to check, so I unplugged and replugged the cables going to what I believed to be was the radio tuner to no avail.

If anyone can help me, i'd HIGHLY appreciate it, as I was planning to by the Intravee II soon, but since I can't select any other music source, it would be useless to me.

Specs: 1997 528i with factory 4:3 nav and a MkII comp.
