Sony CD CX355 Mega Storage 300 doesn't recognize chucked CD

CD is chucked
CD spins up
No audio signal
No movement on sled motor or pickup
No visible light emitted from pickup
Unchuck initiated before CD spins down
Replaced optical pickup (KSS-213B), issue persists
Suspect optical pickup circuit board malfunction

Any advice welcome

Apologies if you have tried this.
If you scroll down to where it says similar threads I believe there are two that may help you out but I haven't checked them. Also.
Here's a little synopsis from the site.. IMPORTANT: CDR or CDRW discs recorded with a High-Speed Recording feature may not playback due to conditions that may have occurred during the burning process. The playback of discs created with a CD burner cannot be guaranteed. If CDR or CDRW discs are being used, attempt to playback a commercially recorded CD.
If you have already done this then try to get a service repair manual. You might get lucky. Just trying to help.

Thanks DP, the CD i attempted to play was commercially produced.

The table/carousel is functioning without issue.

The other posts in the ‘similar issues’ list do not address the issue i am seeing.
