Could be some dust or debris in the unit. Also be careful that you are not putting fingermarks near the hole section of each CD you put in, as the CD plays from the centre out.

You have to remove the cabinet to expose the inner workings. Once inside, you should be able to see the stuck CD. Be careful to avoid damaging any parts of the player mechanism as you work the CD back into the carriage. You may find that once the CD is back in place normal operation resumes.

These models often get broken loading parts in front of the pickup assembly. If you could take a good picture of the front of the mech, I may be able to identify what is broken.

Maybe the opto sensors around the carousel are dirty or not working, the machine needs to know what position it's at for selecting the right number

The belts last about 15 years, less depending on usage. Sounds like it's time for a belt replacement. Check out softduds on eBay, he can replace belts and adjust these players, he has lots of experience.

The belt in the back of the player under the hood is either broke or has came off the rollers. You will need to take the top off and replace the belt a rubber band will work as a temporary fix till you can order a new belt.

Not easily. You basically have to take out the turntable and everything above it. Then you have to make sure the gears are aligned properly as you do it. Not a job for the faint-hearted. I would strongly recommend having a pro do it. There's a guy on eBay, softduds, who does this very well and I would recommend him highly. He really knows these units and can calibrate to factory specs, in the process replacing all the belts.

Sensors on side of carosel not working or a fault on one of the boards

There is definitely something either spring or belt related going on in there. You wont hear anything if a belt broke. I would take it apart and run it while it is open to see what is happening. Should be a relatively easy fix

You probably already figured this out, but you do need to pull firmly back on the cover.

On your remote control, disengage the "repeat" play button. Normally its under the "play" button control, but make sure the "display window" of the player does indicate change settings.

The spindle height is probably off and the PU lens needs cleaning.
This is why I do not have any changers at my facilities.

Something must be jammed so a trip to a Technician will resolve that. This is one of the reason I never buy changers of any kind because over the years I have had to fix so many cartridge, platter and other changers that are all designed poorly enough to make the 90 day period but not last too much longer. The Sony ES models are the best but they were big money back then- I have a broken one in my shop now.
