CD skips while playing

Hi There:
My problem consists of a DUAL CD Player (like the kind in Clubs).
Player #1 plays EVERYTHING without incident--however Player #2 skips
while playing. The Dual CD player was "angled" in a "Rack"--have since
relocated the Disc drives to a flat service--which SEEMS to help
Player #2. I went so far as to remove the cover from the Disc drives
to see if I could draw some sort of "correlation" between Players 1 &
2--nothing--and before you ask, YES I have run the CD "Lens-Cleaner"
on Player #2. As I said, locating the Disc Drives for Players 1 & 2
on a flat surface (as opposed to angling in a rack SEEMED to have
help)--any ideas as to WHY ONE of the Disc Drives would all of a
sudden be "sensitive" to an "angled rack" after over 2 years? All
thoughts welcome.

Brand and model number would help. Generic advice:

A PROPER cleaning, not a cleaning disc, is the first thing one should try in
this situation.

Have two cotton swabs ready -- one moistened but not dripping with Windex or
similar window cleaner, the other dry. Some prefer alcohol (91% isopropyl
or ethanol, NOT rubbing alcohol). GENTLY clean the lens in a circular
motion, rolling the swab as you go. Follow with the dry one to get any
residue. DO NOT adjust anything. You'd only make things worse, maybe to the
point of not playing at all.

Thanks for the reply, Mark. The "Dual-Deck" is "American DJ" model
DCD-Pro400, although since I've "Re-positioned" the Dual Drives onto a FLAT
surface instead of an "Angle Mount", Drive #2, which had the "skip" problem
is working just fine--any ideas as to WHY an "Angle-Rack mount" would affect
just one drive not BOTH?

I've not seen this model, but I have seen Denons on which a disc would sort
of "barely" scrape the disc tray while playing, due to the suspension
sagging just a bit. Your problem could be similar in nature.

Just a thought....
