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.

Technics 110 Disk compact disc player constantly shows reading disks???


1, It thinks a disc is in the unit, 2 it may have a dirty laser lens if a disc is in the unit. It need a service call to fix the unit. It could be a Pickup is burned out but that needs to be determined.

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.

I burned a CD on my PC to keep in my car and it plays OK in the car and on my PC, but does not play on my Technics SL-PD687 5 disc cd player. It's recorded in *.cda format and it's on a CD-RW. Any...


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.

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?
