Hi breezyhill19,
I'm assuming that the disc is good.
No Disk error was displayed in the screen when there's no disc loaded in the tray upon playing the CD player. But if there was a disc in it and still same displayed at the screen, this is an indication of lens assembly malfunction. First you may do the basic steps that may help to cure the symptom.
You must open the back cover (if the unit is not in warranty) then look for the optical lens. Most cases solved by cleaning the lens alone. Because of dust/fine foreign objects build up at the top of the lens, it can't read any disc. Using the smooth cotton buds, clean the lens very gently. I will not advice you to used alcohol.
Try loading again the disc and observe if the symptom is still there...
If Yes, your lens assembly was already faulty. You may contact your local Sony service center for parts replacement or if you can't troubleshoot the unit yourself, I would advice you to send it to them.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

It could be 3 things.

2. your cd spinning motor has gone and needs to be replaced,

Check its sled motor. It is the motor that helps to spin the disc inside. If disc do not spin inside, check the voltage at the terminals of this motor. If it is alright, and comes near to 5VDC, the sled motor is damaged and have to be replaced. OK.

System doesn't read CD

You can try cleaning the laser lens with rubbing alcohol and cotton swab. If cleaning does not work, the laser lens unit will have to be replaced.

Won't power on.

First, before you grab the screwdriver, check the voltage switch on the back. It should say 110v, not 220v. If it says 220v, just flip it the other way. If that doesn't fix your problem (and you don;t feel like taking it back to the store to be exchanged) then there should be a small fuse inside close to the power transformer inside. Check the fuse. If it's blown, you have your rusty gear. If it's not blown, close everything up all nice and proper and resort to exchanging.
