This is a fairly common problem with discs changers. The laser has failed or is too dirty to read the discs. You can try a laser cleaner such as:
But otherwise you will just need to replace the unit.
On rare occasions blowing canned air inside the unit towards where the discs are when they spin could free it up, but it is far better to use an actual laser cleaner. They almost always take care of the issue.

It may be a dirty laser lens, or the laser is worn enough that is can't read the discs any more. There are cleaning CDs available, but I haven't found them to work very well most of the time. The most effective way is to clean the lens with a cotton swab moistened with optical cleaning liquid. That means opening the unit to get to the lens, of course, and some Sonys are harder than others. It's not an impossible task, though.
If the player still doesn't read discs after cleaning the lens, the pickup probably is bad. There are other possible causes, but the pickup is the most common. Thanks for asking on Fixya!
