Lots of options- listen to it- see if the disc is being spun. If so, either the laser died, the lens is dirty (not too likely if suddenly happened) or some bump or kick has shot the allignment. most of these are a biggish prob, except if you are a handy person, you could get inside and clean the dust off the laser lens with a cotton bud. The hard part is cleaning the mirror and the back side of the lens! BE CAREFUL not to mix up the allignment- this is a very critical mechanism of the player!

There are two ways either the 90* or the 180*. If your having problems like skipping I'd suggest finding a place at the center of the car where there is less shock for the unit, like under your seat. I know changers have this 6 seconds or more memory so in case it skips, the first 6 sec ahead of the song is stored and play it to avoid the skip.
sounds like the lens is dirty -try this out you kow them cans of stuff they use to clean keyboards with its like filtered air or something -try to blow out the guts of the cd changer with one of them cans and maybe it will help with functionality do the same with the cartridge emtied out and then run a cd lens cleaner disc and see if that does the trick-
cds skip irrespective of their positions as the reading lens is the same for all.
you can do the following
1)this seems to be a SERVICING problem with dust playing the spoilsport.
2)buy a new disc (scratchless) , play it in all positions and com pare.
if it skips in all positions, call an electronic engineer who will replace /repair the delay circuit.
Clean the lens. Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully. If that seems intact, (and you feel comfortable doing it) check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along
and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play,
frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot,
the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't
work. Dust and lint may be interrupting its function.
If that doesn't work then have the laser-head assembly checked by a repair person if the traverse
assembly seems intact and free of debris.
