Default HELP!Problem with my Pioneer HU(DEH-740MP)

Hi ppl I bought this HU less then two years back for 5000rs, Seemed to be a nice one as it looked clean this HU has OEL. and plays mp3. So i bought it. It worked fine for more than one year. Problem started few months back when suddenly the cd that was playing started skipping which kept on increasing every other day. So someone suggested that i should use lens cleaner. I used it(philips one) and then no cd never rotated in it. Now it has been like 4 months i have given it for repair to a local repair shop and this guy says that he would need to replace some card in it with another. And the only way he can get a new card is from some same model...so its like lying there...Is there anything i can do???

I thought of buying a new IPOD and connecting it with this player through aux. But the Ipod i like will come at the same cost for which i can buy a new player..
Any suggestions???

SSM, you must have bought this HU used. Cuz as a 7 series HU it never sold for 5k. Also, I have one in my dads car since 2002 and being a 01/02 model if you bought it 2 years back it must have been used.

My take is that for a 5 year old HU, its seen its share of action and you should buy a new HU now.

the new range is pretty good. the 4950 should be around 5-6K. even that has 3 pre outs.

might be the lens issue and not really a card issue, very honestly dump it and get a new PIO HU if you can afford 4-5k or buy a IPOD and plug in so u have music in car and while out also
