Will not read CD's

My stereo will not read a CD. The owner's manual does not list this problem in the 'troubleshooting' section. HELP!!!

    The unit is only 2 years old, and all I ever put in it are factory recorded CD's- no homemade ones. It has 5 CD's that 'stack' one on top of another. I bought a CD cleaner and it won't read that either! I am sure that the lens probably just has dust on it, but I don't know how to clean it.

    Also, the day it quit working, I opened the door to change CD's, and when I pressed the 'close' button, it wouldn't close. I had to press the button a few times so it would finally close, and it hasn't worked since. So I thought that it might be a mechanical problem.

    I bought this stereo at Walmart in Dec, 2005.

    Hope this helps.

    It won't any type of CD? Even factory recorded ones? Have you tried using a CD cleaner? Sometimes the lens/prism becomes dirty & occasionally needs to be cleaned. You can find the cleaners @ electronics stores like Best Buy, Circuit City & retailers like Wal-mart, Target & the like. By the way how old is this unit?

It should be listed in a similar section in your Toyota Camry Solara's Owner's Manual.
