The CD player can skip or stop playing tracks due to a number of reasons: I'll start by listing the most common problems.

The first thing you'll want to check is the CD itself. The player may skip tracks because the CD is scratched. Clean the CD gently with rubbing alcohol and a clean cloth. Just to make sure, put a different CD in the player and see if that one works before attempting to pull anything apart.

Also make sure that the CD is pressed fully down onto the o-ring in the cd player. If it's slightly crooked, this could be your problem.

If neither of these apply to you, try cleaning/dusting off the lens for the laser that reads the disk. This lens is located to the left of the o-ring in the CD-player, right underneath where the CD would go.

Still no luck? If you think something needs to be replaced, check out one of our replacement guides here on our Sony CFD-8 device page.
