Question about Onkyo DV-C501 DVD Player
I have the same problem as the other user. My Onkyo DV-C501 says MECHA ERROR and it is no where in the manual. I have turned it off and on several times. I have unplugged it from the wall and the back of the unit. Still same error. Drawer won't open - nothing.
That is a great one! I got a good laugh and sure enough it worked like a charm!

I have actually had the same problem multiple number of times now and am going to suggest you a rather "crude sounding" solution!! First, atleast in my case the problem usually occurs when you turn the DVD player off while it still has DVD/CD inside and then turn it back on a little while later. This is how the "solution" works. I just disconnect the player and give it a good shake !! This somehow dislodges the "stuck" disc inside and voila, the player opens up after reconnecting and pressing the open/close button. Sometimes it takes more than one "good shake". Sounds rather severe but works everytime !!
