The trouble lies in the laser pickup assembly, the only option you can try is buy CD cleaning kit and follow the instructions, the kit will remove any dirt that might have collected on the laser lens, If it works you will get more usable time out of the machine. The fact that you got 10 years is much better than the average, overtime the laser gets weaker until it can not track properly, so! if the cleaning fails it is far cheaper to replace than to repair.
Your cd player is fubar and in definite need of replacement.
Tape unit seems to have a mind of its won. Try to reset the electronics to factory defaults. If that has no remedy, since it is a sony< best advise is to trash it. Repair cost is prohibitively expensive.
same thing is happening with mine, its old asf and won't play a CD without skipping the entire way through, I recommend you just reset it by unplugging it for a day with the power button on, that might help reduce any static buildup in the ribbon cables. Anything from over 20 years ago will have many ribbon cables, which build up static causing electrical errors in the unit. I usually just turn it off for a few hours and then it works fine. But if that doesn't work, it's probably the spinning mechanism, since it's so old, the motor probably needs lubricating, if it's rusted or bent, then it is unfix able. I only recommend this if you didn't plan on taking it to a professional AV repair store. I hope you get to read this as I realize your post is from 7 years ago. good luck.
hi i've had the same problem i though it was the laser or the laser rail until i opened it!! Then i checked the laser, the rail and all the other mechanical it worked fine, until i got to the laser it had a hair right in the middle, don't bother trying the cd cleaner it doesn't work! all i di is take out the laser cleaned it with a cotton suabe and alochol for a bout a minute and now it works beautifaully! also clean the circle thingy that spins and holds the cd! any little particle will make that laser not read the cd right! while ur there tryin cleaning the unit from dust! it's the worst ememy! well hope this helps!
try to play a song from original cds.
maybe you brunt it in mp3 file, or its a different format. try to burn your song to cd-r.
if still, try to use nero to burner..
if it wont play your original cds and burnt cds,then the optical lens or the board is broken.
hope I helped you.
