The cheapest solution would be to use another free input if I understand correctly that the CD input is faulty.

Hi lukecon,
That sounds like broken ground connections. Have a look on the bottom of the PCB where the input jacks are soldered. Alternatively, measure the resistance from RCA ground to chassis. The signal lead may be cracked ion the CD input.
