Did you try banging on it? (Sounds stupid, but just try it first - the faceplate has a plugin connector to the rest of the radio and they have been known to get dirty).

Otherwise, there should be a number of used radios available on eBay. If you replace the entire radio, you'll need to get the anti-lock memory reprogrammed at a dealer, but you can try swapping the faceplate first - it's pretty easy to do.

If you're looking for a new one I just replaced mine with an aftermarket. Mine is an 08 6 CD from my Monsoon system. And as I write this I just realized I forgot to take out my CD's before I swapped the headunits. Damn. PM me if you're interested.
