Try gently swabbing the lens with rubbing alcohol and then immediately drying it with canned air. If this doesnt work the laser will need replacing (est $75-100 at most shops).

I have an AKAI radio/cd/tape player combo. For about a year I had to toggle the switch around a few times just to get the radio to come on, now I cannot get any sound at all with the cd or radio

Akai used to produce quality gear. Today in common with lots of premium manufacturers the gear is less repairable and a whole lot more disposable. This is because it is less "engineered" and more designed for cost-effective assembly.
Mechanical switches and potentiometers for instance, add weight and expense to the manufacture and shipping and they wear out or get dirty and don't work - but they can be replaced or cleaned relatively easily. Soft touch controls and electronic switching is cheaper to produce and more pleasing to some buyers but when they go wrong cleaning rarely works and repairs are beyond the usual scope of the hi-fi enthusiast, meaning expensive repair-shop costs. It is worth attempting to clean the switches if there is access and you feel adventurous.

It sounds as though you have nothing to lose. There is a wide selection of switch and electrical cleaners available, some with an added lubricant for mechanical switchgear and potentiometers though for some things a cotton bud or a slip of paper dipped in methylated spirit works well.

Good luck!

Some Panasonic stereo's don't like non shop bought, home burnt discs (they are recorded at a different level) so try new discs plus run a CD laser cleaner through your system.

When i want to change from radio to cd function on my head unit nothing happens, the radio works i think it happened when my battery was flat and had to get aa out to restart me, cant be the code as radio...

try pressing the reset switch or disconnecting power to the radio for a few minutes. sometimes jumping the battery sends a voltage spike to the radio and locks up the microprocessor.

CD player stopped working on Sony ICF-CD831 PSYC Clock Radio/CD P

I've been able to prolong the life on mine by doing this:

Insert the disc, then spin it by hand and quickly close the door and hit play.

It's always worth using a laser cleaner first, as it may just be dirty and stops spinning because it cannot read the disc.

Its a good possibility that the turntable that the cd sits on is pushed down or up from where its suppose to be as if the laser cant focus on the disc the motor wont spin.There could also be a bad spindle motor as these do go bad or the motor driver ic is defective. see if you can somehow see the lens when the disc is inserted if you can see the lens moving up and down it is one of thoses problems I described are the cause, or worse case is a defective laser Pick-up assy. Good luck. good luck
