First try to clean the laser lens. There are disc's you can buy for that purpose. They a tiny little area on the disc that has some very fine brushes that will clean the lens somewhat. It is not as good as having a technician clean it, but it can help.
Sounds like you may have a bad laser pick up or spindle motor, sometimes it can even be something in the servo circuit for the laser or the dsp ic.
since it loads everything good, the only thing you can do to ensure it is not something simple is to make sure the disc's are not loaded the wrong way and they are clean and scratch free as possible. Sometimes a fingerprint or scratch on a disc on the inner most part of a disc will keep it from being able to be played. That is the area the TOC (table of content) is located. If the laser can't read that area, it can't read any of the disc.
Hope this was helpful, I have repaired lots of cd changers and players over the last 15 years and if it is not something simple, then it will need to be serviced.

If it ain't turn on at all check your fuse box. It could he a fuse under hood in car under dash. If the fuse is good then pull the radio out. Do a smell test on it. If you don't smell anything suspicous then check your red yellow and ground wire. Yellow being your switched 12v which turns off and on with ignition. Check red wire also. Also ground wire is very important.if none of those work it will need to be replaced. Check fuses carefully. A blown fuse can sometimes be easily missed
