Sony cfd-8 boombox randomly skips

I just inherited a good sounding Sony boombox from neighbor. It randomly skips. I have tried various CDs. I noticed it is kind of dusty inside the CD cavity. Is that why and what can I do to prevent skipping? Thanks for your time and response! Julie

    Since my post, I purchased a phillips disc cleaner and ran it. It skips less often, but does continue to skip. Again- thanks for helping here- Julie

    It was reccommended that I get a laser cleaner- (I had already tried one and it has not resolved the problem yet.) I was hoping to continue persuing an answer that will help.

Gently dust if out with a soft brush Then get a CD Lens cleaner disk and run it. Should do the job.

    You did not say but I assume the skipping is whilst the box it on a table top?
    But you of course should expect a little skipping if you are playing while you are er- skipping ;-)
    A laser clean is really I meant, although disc cleaner too.

An electrical surge fried my CFD-676 with CDs in the reader. How can I get the CDs out of the box?

There should be a small tiny round hole on the front. Get a paper clip and straighten it out then push it through the hole until you feel the door open.

The CD starts to play and then stops and it makes a static noise. It is also random at the point at which it stops playing. Have tried multiple CDs.

I would try a dust cleaner can and spray inside to clean; also get a cd cleaner hopefully you can get one with brushes on it and see if that does the trick. you can even go to sony website and get answers.

My CFD-Z501 won't play a disc. I get the message "no disc"

Try to use CD/DVD clening disk ($6 in Walmart). Or simply use cotton swab (Q-TIP) and 40 % ethyl alcohol (vodka) or 50-70% isopropyl alcohol (NO ACETONE), depending on your budget.
Also check if discs are inserted correctly and not damaged/durty etc. Also check your discs. Some CD-players dont accept burned CDs (copyed). I believe Sony is not the case, just a suggestion.
If cleaning wont help lens might be damaged.
Good Luck
