Sony Xplod CDX-S2050 rejects all CDs

Hello, I bought a car with a recently installed Sony CDX-S2050 CD unit. It worked for a couple of weeks, then suddenly it rejected all CDs that I inserted into it. You put the disc in, the mechanism makes 2 attempts to read it, then the screen says "Error", and ejects the disc.  I have pulled the unit to pieces, but nothing has worked. Do I need to get to the "Laser", which hasn't yet been opened up? Are there any other simple fixes that could cure this fault? Thanks.

Does the disc spin at all? Or

Does the disc spin at all? Or does it simply go in, then pop out?

A lens cleaner CD might fix it, and if that doesn't work, it could be a bad optical pickup.

Hi, thanks for the response.

Hi, thanks for the response.
The disc always spins for a couple of seconds, stops, then does that again.
At that point it says disc error, and spits out the disc.
I put a lens cleaner CD in, full of cleaning fluid, but it spun even less, before again being rejected.
So if an optical pickup is faulty, how can I spot this, and can it be replaced, as an individual part? Would I just need to put lots of the cleaning fluid on the laser, or other parts? First I would need to dismantle the whole cradle.
Can it be done without expense? Thanks

Sometimes the optical pickup

Sometimes the optical pickup can be obtained seperate from the CD mech, other times you have to purchase the whole CD mech. 

 

Considering how new the unit is, isn't there some way to return it or get it sent into Sony for repair?
