CDs keeps skipping or don't play at all

I bought my first Soundwave in 2016. After about 6 months, my CDs started skipping or they wouldn't play at all (the "READING DISC" message kept flashing, but the CD just kept spinning and never started). I returned it to the Bose store where I bought it. This has happened again and again and again. I'm now on my FOURTH Soundwave and it's been skipping too. What can be done permanently to fix this problem? I'm about to trash it and buy a new CD player from a different company. I don't think it's anything I'm doing because I've lived in 3 different places during this timeframe (2016–2021).
