This is straightforward. You have to ensure that the disk is stopped by pressing the square symbolled button then press disk skip once or twice and open the tray. Presto (if it is working correctly)

SOURCE: Technics SL-PD888: Output signal is distorted/overdriven.

I can't find a manual. If it has both analog and digital outputs, compare both for sound quality and report the results. Also try them on different INputs of your electronics to eliminate that as a problem.

Let's examine THAT side, too. What are the components involved and how are they connected?

SOURCE: I have a Technics SL-PG480A

This player will not play either MP3 or MP4 encoded CdRs. It is a good 18 years old now and such things were unforeseen back in the day. The newer sony may well be MP3 compatible. You could convert MP4 to standard audio types on your pc via any number of software applications.

SL-PD888 rotates disk tray continuously after turn on


The tray is usually detected by an opto interrupter device. When they or the interconnecting circuits fail this is the symptom you will have. It can also be due to the alignment of the tray. This is why all of my CD players are not changers.

Discs not playing


Don't know this issue with this particular player, but have had other Technics (Matsushita, Panasonic...) CD players doing something similar to this. In most cases, those were carousel players instead of single disc players like yours. These units had optical sensors that determined the presence of CDs in each tray slot by determining whether light was blocked from its LED to its sensor when a disc was present... no light at sensor meant that there was a CD in the slot. The sensors interpreted a shadow as an indication of a disc in the tray. I've had these sensors fail and not be able to determine that a disc was blocking its light signal... the players didn't "see" discs so they wouldn't play them. Solutions varied, but cheapest, easiest solution was often to open the player and blind the sensor completely with a piece of black electrical tape. Most of these sensors I have encountered got too sensitive, so that any light at all inside the player was seen as an empty slot. Blinding the sensors "fixed" most of these players, but disabled the ability to really tell that any given tray slot was empty.
Or, since it is an old player, there is also the possibility that it has simply run its course and the laser assembly has failed.

Good Luck.

What CD types does the PD887 play (CD-R, CD+R, MP3 format)?


You will have to experiment on this unit. I have looked at the owners manual and it does not refer to ANY type of recordable media. Your unit may not be able to play any recorded media. That is why I suggest that you try -R first, then you may want to try a Audio CD, specifically made for audio.

Here is a link to your owners manual if you need it.

I hope that this helps you.

Won't stop playing.


In the Carousel on the far left there is a slot marked single. Place your favourite CD in that slot and when it's bed time press the single button to the left of the Direct & Program buttons on the front of the unit. Then press play, only the CD in the single slot will be played. Enjoy. Always, Alvin T.
