Stereo on Its Way Out?

so i have been having some issues lately with my stock stereo, and the problems are getting worse i was wondering if there are any recommendations?



this has been on my display for close to a year now, it used to display the song title and band, now this is all it displays.

it also has a problem reading CD's, ill put in a CD and it will say reading and then it stops reading and says NO CD. it also doesnt like to spit them out, when i hit the eject button, it acts like its going to but then it doesnt and says CHECK DISC.



it also likes to do this randomly, it doesnt do it all the time but periodically it will stay like this for a day or 2 and then it goes back to being fine.

Yep, this.

I want to get a Pioneer touch screen soon, my factory radio has some issues too lol. Sometimes it just decides it doesn't want to be a stereo anymore and shuts off mo power.
