I just inherited a good sounding Sony boombox from neighbor. It randomly skips. I have tried various CDs. I noticed it is kind of dusty inside the CD cavity. Is that why and what can I do to prevent skipping?

I would try a dust cleaner can and spray inside to clean; also get a cd cleaner hopefully you can get one with brushes on it and see if that does the trick. you can even go to sony website and get answers.
Try to use CD/DVD clening disk ($6 in Walmart). Or simply use cotton swab (Q-TIP) and 40 % ethyl alcohol (vodka) or 50-70% isopropyl alcohol (NO ACETONE), depending on your budget.
Also check if discs are inserted correctly and not damaged/durty etc. Also check your discs. Some CD-players dont accept burned CDs (copyed). I believe Sony is not the case, just a suggestion.
If cleaning wont help lens might be damaged.
