If you have access to the lased head, gently wipe the lens with a stick with cotton moistened with isopropyl alcohol, or regular sanitary alcohol. Use circular movement. Then, gently shine the lens with dry cotton. DO NOT PRESS THE LENS !!!! If the issue persists, it's more complicated. You need to have access to the tiny trimmer below or near the laser head. Using a plastic screwdriver, rotate the trimmer clockwise about 2-3 degrees. Test playing. If track doesn't skip, hit the CD player's case with the finger, to check if track skips because of shock. If skips, rotate trimmer again 1-2 degr. Check again. If it doesn't work, try rotating counterclockwise. You need patience. Hope it is useful.

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.

With what should you clean the lens? Are

I do not recommend any spray type cleaner. However, there is a CD lens cleaner in the form of a CD. You place the cleaner CD in the unit and follow the directions. I've included a link just to give you an idea of the product. They are relatively inexpensive, and can be purchased from just about any store that carries CDs, audio equipment, etc.
Hope this helps!

Try opening up the top and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, look at the back side of the optics and there should be a marking like KSS-xxx. This is the generic part designation. Any electronics supplier that supports Sony should have these.

Both previous suggestions are wrong. Your machine displays 'wrong disc' as you are trying to use a computer grade CDR, this machine needs a 'consumer audio' grade cdr that are more expensive. Google the manual, it explains further.

Lens Knocking Against The CD - All CDs skip or diginoise then fail.

Take the small back cover off and take some electrical grade contact cleaner and spray all around the lens area, that worked for me.
