A scratched or damaged disc is often the culprit and not the player. Use a newer disc if possible to ensure the condition is pristine. If the problem persists with the new disc, remove all discs and run a power cycle to reset the player. Remove any batteries or unplug it to drain the power.

Simply take a cotton ball and dip it in some alcohol to clean the area near the scratch. Then apply Vaseline or Petroleum Jelly to the disc. The Vaseline will fill in the scratch, hopefully making it readable again.
Will a burned CD play in my car?
Unless your car stereo specifies that it will play an MP3, MP3 music files burned onto a CD won’t play in your car’s stereo. Buying a “Data” CD-R to burn MP3s can leave you with a CD that may only work in another computer. Burning music to a Data CD-RW will render the same effect.
What format do CD players read?
Audio compact discs carry sound information recorded as digital data. Most audio CD players use an uncompressed data format capable of producing high-quality sound. The majority of music CDs come in a format called WAV, which is also used for some sound files in personal computers.
