    I have a 4 or 5 year old Alpine CD player in my Blazer and it's starting to skip. My question is how do I clean the inside of the deck? I posted this in the audio section but it got no comments

    They make a doo-dad that looks just like a CD but has a bunch of little brushes on it. Put it in, push play, and the brushes clean of the laser for ya.

    Try a can of that air stuff. You know that you see at electronics stores. It has a straw on it like WD-40 but is air that comes out under low pressure and will blow out dust. I use it on my CD writer on my computer and it works awesome. I bet it'd work that same on your player? In fact do you have an air compressor? Might try a few sprays of that to blow the dust free? Just don't spray it in there too hard you might break something! :-)

    I've had my Kenwood CD player for about 3 years and my CD's stopped playing. I bought one of those cleaners, but it didn't help. My brother has an Eclipse CD player in his truck, which cost about $500, and his "reader" or whatever they call it went bad. His was replaced under warranty, but I bet that's whats wrong with mine and possibly yours. It's not a big item to replace, but the hassle is getting it out of your dash and then having to hook all the wires back up again. I just don't play CD's right now.
