Try getting s CD laser lens cleaner kit from Walmart or other source, very cheap to buy, follow cleaning instructions and see if that works, if not then the best thing to do is replace the CD/Clock Radio.

Can you wake up to a particular song, or does it always play the first song?


Unfortunately , in this CD player, you can't select the starting song for wake up feature, it will start from the fisrt song of the CD, what you could do is to record your own wake up disk, putting your sort of songs.

After a few months, the CD player stopped working. It doesn't spin, and it shows "no" in the clock display


Each CD Player has a potentiometer to adjust the laser assembly alignment. The T609t CD player has a tiny pot of 2000 Ohms (2K) about 1/8 x 1/8 of an inch on a tiny printed circuit board right under the laser assembly. I tried adjusting its value with no success. The wiper was not making contact with the carbon layer below it. I removed it and soldered in 2 wires of 6 inches to work out of the box. I attached at the end of the 2 wires a small printed circuit board of 1/2 x1/2 inch to solder a new pot of 1000 Ohms in series with 50 Ohms resistor. I started increasing the pot value until about 700 Ohms and immediately the Player showed 01 on the display and started to play IL DIVO songs. Obviously after each new setting of the pot I had to repeat the same routine: Power off, power on, hit Play, see No CD message on the display until I found the right initial value on the pot. I still had to tweek it up toward 750 Ohms because it was skipping a bit of song number 8. It is working fine now.
I taped my mod, tucked it in the box and closed the whole thing until the next time it will go out of alignment.
The pot I am using is bigger (3/8x3/8x1/4) it takes 44 turns of 180 deg to sweep it from 0 to 1000 Ohms. The old pot is swept from 0 to 2000 Ohms in one turn of 120 deg. The 50 Ohms resistor was for safety in case I hit 0 Ohms on the pot. I kept it in the mod in case I want to hook a scope.
Cheers

Cds dont load and tracks will skip during song play


It is clear symptoms of bad optical laser or dirty optical lens.
Please put lens cleaning CD in player, play that CD to clean dust on optical lens surface. If that helps, fine or replace optical laser block in player.
I can provide you optical lens part number, please confirm is it Sony CDP-CX153 cd player or any other model.
Thanks.

I have a Jensen flip out 7 inch screen and i have always used burnt cds in it and they have worked fine but i burned 2 disc off the other day and it will play songs like 1-10 good but then starts skipping...


sounds like a bad spot in your ribbon cable. it runs form the laser assembly to the circuit brd. you could have some dirt on the sled rails..either way the radio will have to be taken apart..if you can do this yourself the ribbon cable is not too expensive...labor is what gets you..
