I have a Technics CD changer SL-PD867 it will not play re writable disc's any other disc ok


Not all CD players can or will play CD's burned in a PC. Sometimes the CD player is to old, so not compatible with these CDs. Sometimes the player just does not play these CD's, because of rights protection.
A CD burned in a PC is less reflective than an normal music CD. Normal CD's do have a metal coating and are highly reflective. Burned CD's have a dye, and where the laser burned the dye, it only changed colour. Making it less reflective.
All modern CD playes should be capable of playing CD r's. But the player that is really compatible, is labelled CDr and CDrw compatible.

My Technics SL-PD987 5-Disc, does not read CD any more. First did not read burned CD, after did not read original CD.


Power the unit off. Unplug it. Press the power button for 30 seconds. Plug it back in and try again.

If this doesn't resolve the problem, I recommend a CD cleaner. This is a CD that has a small brush attached. It will clean the dust from the laser reader.

If this doesn't work, I'd suggest a professional repair shop.

The problem with old CD Players are that they sometimes are a little fidgety when it comes to reading CDRs.

You could try burning a new CD on the lowest possible setting, say 2x or 4x.

Also try changing the CDR brand as some cheap CDRs are prone to not reading in old CD Drives.

Try using a regular CD-R (CD recordable - record only once) instead of a CD-RW (CD rewritable - rewrite multiple times). CD-RW use a different "ink" to write the data to the disc and can be re-recorded/erased a couple of times before it loses its ability to write effectively to it.

I have burnt a bunch of CD's for my Sony CD player. It holds approximately 400 CD's. It seems that last few songs on the burnt CD's are played with a lot of distortion. They have become progressiveley and...


I've had the same thing happen to me.

Minute variations from one machine (or disc) to the next would explain the different results. As the CD standard allows for error detection, correction and concealment as required, one machine may be exhausting its capabilites while the next is either correcting or concealing the problem inaudibly.

Try this: If your source material is not available for a new burn, COPY one 'bad' CD to a fresh disc CD-R (data disc) on your PC. The data copy process is not in real-time like music burning or listening is, so the PC may be able to retry and correct data errors in the source and write perfect data on the copy. If the PC can't read the data it will fail right away, but it will retry it a few times before giving up..

However, if the brand of media you're using is the problem you might just be making another copy that will degrade with time. No maker is immune to bad media. Sometimes one batch will have a problem while others won't.

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?

What the E-20 showing on my cd player


Hello! The "E20" error code loosely means that the CD player cannot focus, or read the disc properly. This could be from a number of reasons, dirty pickup lens, dirty/scratched disc, excessive humidity, or using a burned/copied CD that was burned at a speed that was too fast to provide a "deep" enough burn to the disc. And lastly, I know GM's Delco radios in the late 90's had issues reading CD-RW's; but read CD-R's fine (if burned slow enough)

My first suggestion would be to see if this happens on all CD's - originals and/or burned ones. If it only happens on burned/copied discs - I'd recommend slowing down the burn speed to no faster than 16x and retrying. If it does happen with both types of discs, then I'd purchase a CD lense cleaner and run that through a couple of cycles.


Hope this helps and good luck! Thanks for using FixYa!

CD doesn't work. LED readout says FRMTREAD, error 12. ;what's happening?


If this error appears on any music CD (burned or store-bought), it's likely the laser/lens assembly is having trouble focusing well enough to read the disc. You can try resetting the unit (use a paperclip or ballpoint pen to press the button in the small hole next to the eject button), but there's only a small chance this will help. You could also take it to an electronic repair shop to see how much a cleaning would cost (usually more than the player).

If it only happens on burned discs, try changing brands of CD-Rs or even burning the disc at a slower speed. If the songs are burned from iTunes, try burning other formats (i.e. MP3) via a different method.
