same thing is happening with mine, its old asf and won't play a CD without skipping the entire way through, I recommend you just reset it by unplugging it for a day with the power button on, that might help reduce any static buildup in the ribbon cables. Anything from over 20 years ago will have many ribbon cables, which build up static causing electrical errors in the unit. I usually just turn it off for a few hours and then it works fine. But if that doesn't work, it's probably the spinning mechanism, since it's so old, the motor probably needs lubricating, if it's rusted or bent, then it is unfix able. I only recommend this if you didn't plan on taking it to a professional AV repair store. I hope you get to read this as I realize your post is from 7 years ago. good luck.
