I noticed my CD player skipping a lot and poor sound quality several months ago. Eventually it quit playing all together. I put a CD in and it attempts to read; it displays 00:00:00: and shows track number 1. I hear some clicks then it displays "E02" and ejects the CD.
I tried to put a lense cleaner in last night, but it wouldn't read that either. It probably didn't spin enough (or at all) to clean the lense.
Radio works fine, and it played burnt and regular cd's all the time. Now it won't play either.

Hey Rachelle.. Sorry to say, but Road Gear is an off brand, and they don't hold up well at all. It sounds to me like the laser it's self has gone bad, and unfortunately not worth fixing.
If you want an inexpensive cd player that will last for a while I recomend Kenwood KDC138 they retail for arround $90, and do a decent job. Nothing fancy, but they do have a front input for MP3 player, or any aux source.
well you can really just hook a USB cord into any cd player it has to come with one built into it already and if its not playing your burned cds then its probly of low quality or old. or it doesnt recognize the format that you are burning the cds with especially if your using windows media player to durn the cds some cd players dont read WMA files (windows media assotiated) files
You may have Power antenna and amp remote turn on wires switched. Your system may be looking for turn on signal from radio and only gets it when am or fm is on because power antenna wire is hooked up instead of amp turn on signal.
If you go out and buy a cleaning disc it may help. You should really
clean a car cd player at least ounce or twice every 6 months to get the
best sound and play out of the unit. You can pick these disc up at any
walmart , kmart , or computer store. Hopefully this can help you out
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.
