I've owned two of these players, one currently, and both exhibit this behavior. Although frustrating, it seems to be inherent in the vertical loading mechanism. Every finicky CD I pull out of the PD-F27 plays perfectly in my single-loading tray player, including CD-Rs. One would expect more of an "Elite" product, but there you are.

Thank you, Mark Z! My Pioneer PD-M551 would just stop reading the CD, usually near the end of the 4th or 5th disk, and then sometimes it wouldn't read any disks or maybe only the first one or two. I observed that the white ribbon cable was most contorted near near the end of the 4th through 6th disk (also discovered the disks are read proceeding from the center outward, unlike vinyl records). I unfolded the ribbon, massaged it and left it loose and unfolded and that fixed it (at least, temporarily). The PNP-1343 ribbon cable from Pioneer costs $11 but with shipping and handling it is over $30 so I haven't bought it yet.
the problem is not the laser, but the cable that connects the laser to cd board, it is cracked..and will break connection when moved out from its home position, i have replaced a lot of cabes for this model..i know it well
I'm not sure about your model, but most CD changers have to have a
"head" unit (reciever) that mounts in the dash and does all the
controlling through a very long cable about as big around as your
little finger that plugs into the head unit on one end and the changer
at the other end. Usually there is more than one model of head
unit that will fill the bill. You might go online at the Pioneer
web site and download the user manual for your unit and see what head
units will work with it. Good luck.
