When I read your post, I thought I may have wrote it myself, and forgot!! This is almost EXACTLY what is happening to me. I bought my pioneer 4 years ago at Best Buy. Last week, my cd started fading in and out, almost sounding scratchy to some point. Then it just quit all together. Showing the track number, but no longer playing! The only difference in our problems, is that mine only makes it to about track 2. I've tried about a dozen cd's and it has happened to all of them. I went to the store and bought one of those cd's that is supposed to clean the lens. I ran it through, hoping this was the problem, put another audio cd in, and it did the same as it did before I cleaned it! I hate this!!! I can't live without my cd player in my car, and you would think Pioneer would last a heck of a lot longer than 4 years!!!
Does anyone have any other solutions?!
