I don't condone cheap CD players, I warned the person who I installed it for, it's been about a month, suddenly the player will not accept a cd. If you stick it in there, it's like the player sensor doesn't pick up that there's a cd being fed. so you gotta kinda shove it in there. but it won't play still. What you actually have to do to get the player to accept the cd, is hit the eject button, and kinda hold the cd to the point where the wheels are grazing the edge, then when the cycle is done, it'll suck the cd in and play fine. Any way I can just fix this for these people? I really don't like unsatisfied customers.
There should be a reset button on either the face of the player or under the faceplate if its removable (tiny black button). Otherwise to remove the cd disconnect the unit and then plug it in or remove the memory fuse or battery lead for 5 seconds.
Unplug the cd player and open the unit up by taking the top cover off..there will be screws holding it on on the underside. You should be able to retrieve the cd from inside. Your track is broken, you will need to replace it.

If your CD player isn't playing CDs anymore, its possible that the lens had reached its end of life. If your player is still kinda new, its possible that you need to have your lens cleaned. Get yourself a cheap cd lens cleaning kit and use it on your player.
Sounds like you may have shorted the ignition lead, normally red). Also some radio manufacturers use a cheap fuse holder on thier radio harness so check the fuse holder and the fuse. Then check the radio fuse in the fuse block of the car. Finally check the wire harness where it plugs into the radio (if applicable) a wire may have pulled out.
Make sure all connections you made are insulated.
I have had mine for 3yrs and it just smoked
last night(12/04-03/08). I had it in one of my demo cars to prove a
point. That a properly installed and maintained budget system is
possible and will outlast and out perform many Well Know brands. I have
3 show cars for my shop one budget(montero), mid level price
point(dodge stealth r/t) and a full blown w/ ppi amps, mb quart
speakers eclipse devices(bmw m3) The PPI amps have smoked several
times, to the point that I no longer carry PPI. My point being that no
matter what you buy there is a good chance it will breakdown w/o
routine cleaning and care.

First of all, you aren't going to like this solution because it's the truth. If you rate me poorly, it's because you don't understand the truth.
The optical pickup is bad and needs to be replaced. Anything made by Jensen/Durabrand is poorly built. Yes, you're lucky to have even gotten four months use out of it. I've seen some that only last for two months and they die. Fortunately, that's why you didn't pay that much for it. I would suggest getting a Pioneer in the future.
It sounds as if you've covered about as much as you can do without pulling it out and taking to the repair shop. Something you should definitely do if all this skipping is taking place whilst the car is stationary.
A lot of earlier car CD players wouldn't accept the burn it yourself type disks and perhaps the factory CD was damaged. Try a few more factory CDs before you do anything else. Just because a disk plays on the Computer or cd Player in the house doesn't mean it will behave itself in the car.
If you've has the unit for a while you could have the smear of grease they put on the worm drive gummed up with dust and this is stopping the disk carriage from moving freely. Or perhaps the heads are out of alignment due to constant vibration from rough roads. Either of these problems would mean a removal and either a clean or the repair shop.
