When I put a CD in, it often spins it round, then tells me there's "no disc", and won't play it. Some CDs work fine; it seems to be newer ones that won't play. Sometimes I can get it to work by opening and closing the lid a few times.

I had a similar problem with my DVD player. Cleaning the laser eye helped fix my problem. You can clean it manually if you are not afraid to remove the cover of the unit or you can try a cleaning disc. The eye can collect dust and prevent it from reading the ID sector of the music CD.
I have two of these players now and i know what this is. It is because of the disc holder. It has been pressed down to the bottom and no longer lets the motor spin the disc. The fix is to carefully pry off the small disc holder that spins and find a place where it will spin freely then apply superglue to the center of it and very carefully sliding it back on making sure its not too far down as to not play. Let the glue dry for a long time and carefully put a disc on and see if it plays. This worked with mine but i kind of broke it in other ways and didnt let the glue dry fully so its still kind of scetchy so i bought another on on ebay for like $10.
I have two of these Tascam CD-A500 players, and one more than the other has this problem of not reading some CDs that will play fine in other players. I'm starting to loose faith in this Tascam product. Anyway, seems the consensus is to open it up and check for dirty laser optics. If that doesn't fix the problem, then send it in for repair or scrap it and buy a different brand. I've not had this problem with any other brand CD player, but very suspicious that the same problem happens on BOTH of my Tascam CD-A500 units.
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 think you need to press and hold the Play button (marked PLAY/PAUSE) to switch between CD playback and the USB port (you can store mp3 files on a USB stick and play them directly) on the front of the device.
Try inserting a disc, switching the unit to CD mode, press and hold Play until the display changes and the CD spins up...
try cleaning the lens first use a lint free swab and GENTLY clean the lens. don't use any liquid on this. if that doesn't work then load a disc and gently spin the disc when it lifts into load posistion. if begins to spin on it's own then replace the spindel motor. if it still does not spin, replace the optical pickup, the EF sensors inside the pickup no longer have the ability to read (see) the disc.
