Return it. That's not a normal problem. Yamaha is usually pretty solid gear

I picked up a used(but minty) one about a month ago and it has been nothing short of stellar. Great sound(CD, SACD), impeccable build quality, and operationally perfect. Give your player a little more time and if the problem continues, return and have them send another one. IMO, these Yamahas are keepers and mine will definitely be here as long as I still have the matching A-S1000 integrated.
"Iam really considering returning it, Jafant this unit sounds unbelievable even on redbook it has huge soundstage,very powerful and smooth."
The more I think about it, the more I have to agree with most. You lose nothing by returning it except for the time waiting for a replacement. You could have received a sample that had the lazer move out of alignment oh so slightly which the result was the intermittent skipping. As I mentioned, I am way more than pleased with every aspect of the CD-S1000 and think that it is a unit worth another go around with one new in box.
