I need wire color help CD player not working

i am putting in a new stereo because the cd player wasn't working in old one but it isn't working in the new one either so i think it must be wired wrong.

the radio works and everything but not the cd player.

i dont have a harness on it at all, i have to wire everything to the radio.

I used the colors from my other thread but there are few other wires

there is the orange one left over which is the dimmer

and another wire i think is yellow and purple?

the only wire left on the new sony stereo is the amp wire that's all.

WHY IS THE CD PLAYER NOT WORKING?

The radio is powered and you can listen to AM/FM stations bit the CD player doesn't work? Sounds like a bad unit.

Yup, if it works at ALL, then it should ALL work. You have a bad head unit. Or maybe bad CDs... or maybe the cd's are being put in upside down?

There's not more than one power, Like CDMCUL says, if part works, it should all work. what CDs are you using? Are they burned?

the 2nd new one doesn't work either, it must be something else. there are no other wires on the stereo itself but the car has an orange wire left and a yellow/purple one left.

there must be something wrong, maybe i need the factory harness or something

The silver side of the CD points down. if AM/FM radio works then it is NOT the wiring
