Question about Sony DHC-ZX50MD Shelf System

2 Answers


The CD Changer will not eject any CDs. It gives an error message "MEC Error". The result is the same for both local and remote. I have also cycled the power to no effect. It does whirr for some time like the internal changing mechanism is doing its thing, but then it stops with the Error Message and no CD ejected or played.

Re: CD Changer MEC ERROR

You need to make sure that your cd mech is aligned correctly. if it is not alligned correctly, it will power up from standby, try to load the cd trays and you will get mech error message on the display. good luck with allignment.

I have a Bose Wave Music System with add-on 4 cd changer attached. The top portion (radio & 1-cd function) is working fine. The 4 cd changer is not working, I keep getting an error message and none of...

Bose does not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively making themselves the only repair center for their products. Your only safe repair method is to contact the service/repair center at They will likely offer you a flat rate repair or credit towards the purchase of a new unit.

Hello, j'ai eu le meme probleme!!!
Il s'agit d'un branchement électronique à l'intérieur qui est à moitié enlevé..

A disc is in the Bose Wave system and will not play or eject

Unplug the system. Turn the entire unit upside down. The CDs will eject. After I tried this (found it online somewhere), it worked fine for about 2 months. Now it suddenly turns on by itself and ejects CDs (creepy). But at least the original problem was solved.

Shelf cds is blocked SONY CMT-HP7

To get the cds to play, and 5 to eject, you can try taking off the sides of the consul and using compressed air. As for the shelf problem, I'm not really sure.

CD changer major problem

You probably have a small plastic gear stripped out or a belt slipping and it will need to be replaced. I wouldn't recomend a do it your self repair. This is most likely a job for a professional.
