You can try cleaning the laser lens. You can do this using qtips and rubbing alcohol. Be sure you are very gentle though or you could risk scratching the lens which would completely ruin the laser assembly.
sounds like you connected the amp turn on lead to the power antenna wire coming from the deck, so the amp turns on when you have the radio on, but turns off when playing cds. you need to connect the amp turn on lead to the amp remote wire.
The remote control missing shouldn't be a factor - Pioneers will usually select the same sources with the "source" button as they will with the remote.
I would suggest 2 things - first, try different CDs. If it's accepting and ejecting just fine it may be a problem with reading your CD (I'm assuming you haven't tried this already). Ideally use a regular audio CD (not an MP3/WMA disc) that is relatively scratch free.
If that doesn't work, check to see if the initial settings can be adjusted to enable CD play.
To get to the initial settings menu you need to hold the "source" button until the unit powers off (the car's key will still need to be on at this point). Push and hold the "function" button and it should go into a menu with various adjustments, such as clock, aux enable, etc...
There may be a setting in there to enable CD play. I realize that the display may also be in Japanese but I'm hoping it will be somewhat intuitive for you - you seem to have a decent technical grasp on things already.
Mabye. I would suggest either opening the unit up and cleaning thr "laser" (optical pickup) with a q-tip. Or try using one of those cleaning cds that have the little cleaner fabric on the inderside...
if that doesent work something is most like wrong with the cd machanism wether its not spinning the cd or just not reading it due to a defective laser..
