My Denon CD player (DCD-1420) has started to skip badly when playing some tracks on some CDs. The problem is random and often will play perfectly the same track when played later. Does the laser wear over time or maybe an alignment problem.

It's having trouble reading the CDs. The thing that reads it could be dirty. But try a different cd. The CD player is getting old and if there is even a small scratch it will be hard to read it. A new CD player would be the way to go
it could be lots of things, how many hours of use your player has? (laser opticals have a life time) are you using cheap recorded CD's? ar the speakers too close to the player (loud base could make it skip) the laser optical could be dirty try a cleaning disk.
replace the spindle motor. the motor's speed varies while playing cds and a worn motor will not keep to the correct speed for playback of certain tracks on various points of the disc and will cause skipping and even stop altogether.
It is clear symptoms of bad optical laser or dirty optical lens. Please put lens cleaning CD in player, play that CD to clean dust on optical lens surface. If that helps, fine or replace optical laser block in player. I can provide you optical lens part number, please confirm is it Sony CDP-CX153 cd player or any other model. Thanks.
I have a Denon DCM-460 purchased from Goodwill a couple days ago and had problem with one CD-R skipping and stuttering toward the end.
Cleaned the CD which helped a little but still started skipping and stuttering.
Noticed a scratch toward the outer end which I suspect is where the problems occurred.
Anyway, last night I cleaned laser, rails, lubed spindles and moving parts. I used 99.9% alcohol to clean. I used a light teflon oil (Tri-Flow) to lube spindles and rails. And white electronic grease where you see remnants of white grease.
Today, I now played through the problem CD-R with no problems.
Assuming placement is level and stable, certainly worth a try and the effort.
