How mechanical are you? If you are not that mechanical, I have a couple working CD players that just need display bulbs replace, which I could do before selling them.
If you are mechanical, and have the right tools, you can remove the radio top plate and clean the CD laser lense off with a q-tip and alcohol. I've done that on several and it works great for fixing that issue.
If you do it and it doesn't work, let me know and I can get one around if you want a stock one.
I'll try and get pictures up this weekend when I am swapping bulbs out of the procedure.
