Yes, it certainly could be a bad sylus.  I had this happen once when I
one of my players without the lockdown pins in place.  The next I used
it, the 
disc would play OK at the beginning, but get snowy at the end.  Even the
indicator quite incrementing.  A new stylus fixed the problem right

We discovered CED's in July of this year when we picked up a Toshiba
stereo player with 19 CED's for the bargain price of $10.00 (for all) at
a local garage sale.  Everything works great (but no instruction book
for the player).  We have been hooked ever since!  We discovered that
the  best place to find more discs was on the web, specifically e-bay.
Some discs have skipped a little but most of them play just fine.  We
now have about 30 CED's and just recently acquired another player that
we found at a thrift store for $8.00.  The store owner had no idea what
the machine was and it had a disc stuck inside.  We managed to locate a
CED in the back of the store and removed the disc that was stuck and
tried the player.  It worked, we bought it and now have a player in 2
rooms in the house.  And amazingly enough, the thrift store machine
plays better than the other one.  We left our name at the thrift storein
case they came across any other discs or players.  Received a letter a
couple of weeks later saying they had about 15 CED's and were we
interested.  We drove out the following weekend and managed to pick up 6
more discs for $3.00 each.  
   Keep your eyes peeled at garage sales and look at thrift stores.  You
just never know what you might find.

    Dear Enthusiasts:  As always I try to keep you informed on my  corporate and
    hobbyiest CED plans. Well I would like to thank Dr. John  Trasco for his
    donation of many discs to my project. He may now loan any  disc (now just
    discs he has loaned) from the library.  In time for theholiday season, any
    person who  has made a donation may extend their loaning period up to 5 weeks
    so that may  not have to worry about returning discs during the season.
    Thanks Daniel P. Cayea
