The laser is eithr dirty or damaged.
Open the lid and look at the laser eye. Take a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and gently swab the lens, then IMMEDIATLY blow dry with some canned air. If this does not fix it, the laser needs replaced. It is probably a KSS-213 (you can usually peek in the hole that the lens slides along to see), which is widely available on the internet for around $15. Changing it is best left to a service shop.

when you reset it, it reset to the factory default tuning frequency, find it by pressing seek several times while a cd is playing until you hear your disc. save that station.
