Lots of options- listen to it- see if the disc is being spun. If so, either the laser died, the lens is dirty (not too likely if suddenly happened) or some bump or kick has shot the allignment. most of these are a biggish prob, except if you are a handy person, you could get inside and clean the dust off the laser lens with a cotton bud. The hard part is cleaning the mirror and the back side of the lens! BE CAREFUL not to mix up the allignment- this is a very critical mechanism of the player!

Buy a CD Lens Cleaning Disc from Walmart. Run that a couple of times. If that doesn't fix it send it back.
Oh, it a portable Sony Disc Player clone. That means it has to be 15 years old or more. Actually, I found the date '18/6/2007'. It's a new 14 year old device that has been in storage. Emerson are a bargain basement brand and generally lack quality..
My experience with CD/DVD players has been, unfortunately, that when the trays stop opening and/or closing, or when error messages start regularly, it's history. Hope yours turns out differently, but I wouldn't count on it. It will cost you as much or more to fix it than to replace it. if you live near a large junkyard you might try to retrieve one there, but the fact that your car is 13 yrs. old will make that tougher.
Your cd player is fubar and in definite need of replacement.
Tape unit seems to have a mind of its won. Try to reset the electronics to factory defaults. If that has no remedy, since it is a sony< best advise is to trash it. Repair cost is prohibitively expensive.
have you tried using cd + or - r's and some units dont recognise all,also cd player may only read mp3 format dics, not itunes, you can reformat using software from web site....... swift sound file converter
Clean the lens. Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully. If that seems intact, (and you feel comfortable doing it) check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along
and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play,
frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot,
the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't
work. Dust and lint may be interrupting its function.
If that doesn't work then have the laser-head assembly checked by a repair person if the traverse
assembly seems intact and free of debris.
