I've had it for awhile and haven't had any problems. But I accidentally left a cd in it for a week (I was out of town) and now I can't get it to power on to get my cd back out. Nothing comes on, no tuner...zip. Also, I can't find the manual and am not sure I still have it. Help!?

You will need an expert technician to open the unit, they are small bulbs with covered color lenses, usually small plastic caps. the simplies is to remove this caps and mark it with colored felt tips marker
If song tracks jump or skip then it is problem of cd player like optical laser is dirty / clogged, and if track doesn't jump or restarts in middle of playing back then cd player is just fine, Please check cd creator software settings.
You are correct, the unit powers entirely from the red and yellow leads. Your symptoms sound like a unit that isn't getting power on the red (switched) lead. The most likely cause is a blown fuse in your vehicle's fuse box.
Sony say in the manual that if you record high bit-rate mp3's the sound may be intermittent.
I feel this is due to the decoder having to move ALOT of bits around to play, try some makeing a disk with mixed rate mp3's on.
e.g.) some 64Kbps, some 128, some 192, and some as high as you can get and see if there is any differ
