I have stripped the radio down and think I have found the problem. The six "trays" were not moving properly, as some of the little nodules that held the trays components onto the large white plastic screws that rotate to determine which disc to play/load had gone. Hence the trays became out of alignment and jammed the unit.
Of course I doubt that I would be able to get a new tray component on its own. Buying a new unit £600 simply to resolve an issue with a small piece of plastic does seem a little excessive!
I know what you mean about the twisted fascia at the rear, but if you press the little plastic switch on the fascia itself then the little plastic doors do still open (on mine anyway) so that may not be the problem (in my case).
