If the disc is actually loading but won't read, try cleaning the laser lens with a cotton swab. Unplug the unit and remove the cover to access the laser. Spray a small amount of glass cleaner on the swab and gently wipe the lens of the laser assembly. Use the other end to dry it and remove excess dust. The only way you can tell if the disc is loading is to remove the top cover and observe if the disc at least loads and spins. If it does, try that procedure.
If the disc doesn't come up to the loaded position and spin (spin the disc by hand to confirm this), your gears may be out of alignment. Take the disc out, and use a screwdriver to manually turn the gear from the bottom of the unit. The gear should be visible through a small hole in the bottom toward the front of the unit. Take a slotted screwdriver and turn it until you see the laser assembly come up to the clamp that holds the disc in place. You may have to force it slightly if the gear has skipped a notch, it might "pop" as it goes past the tooth. Make sure you are turning it in the same direction as it moves when loading a disc! Once you do that, the laser should come up completely and be able to clamp the disc and read it.

There are 6 or 7 phillips head screws that keep the top on; remove them and pop the top. This will give you access to all CD's. Remove them all, then plug the unit back in and press the open close button and check for normal operation. If it still wont open, it's broken a gear and needs to be serviced. You may consider replacement of the unit if inoperative, the replacement model is priced at $129.00 and a repair would probably cost the same if not more. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you further.

im probbaly guessing that the motor that drives the draw has given up and died what you could do is open it up and remove the motor from the draw but still have it plugged into the board turn on the cd changed and press the eject button and see if it spins without a load on it hopefully there is a model number on the motor it that you might be able to replace it with

Pretty much the only thing you can try at home is cleaning the laser lens, if the cleaner works then remember to use it now and again.
If the CD lens cleaner does not work the take it to the nearest sony tech/dealer for repair. Multi CD systems are very complicated and need specialist attention.
Hope this helps
Thanks for using FixYa
