Question about Toshiba SD-4205 DVD Player

Open Question

Toshiba sd-4205 5-dvd carousel changer declares mecha error during startup, will not eject tray. Same problem. The only solution seems to be to take the player to a repair shop. My local Toshiba authorized repair service charges $85 an hour plus parts. The $30 estimate is applied to the total cost which would probably be over $100. Sadly, I don't think it's worth fixing given the prices on new non-Blu--ray DVD players.

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: Toshiba SD-5000 DVD Player - disc tray stuck

Try first turning off the player and turn it back on and eject it using the eject button on the unit and also try to eject it using the remote.. IF still wont eject this can be a mechanical function on the ejecting part of the unit that you may need to open the unit and check for that..

Hope that helps.........

I found that the ribbon cable from the DVD tray to circuit board located in the middle of the chassis was loose. It only seems to be wedged into place. I inserted the cable back in and made sure it was wedged into place securely. I have had to do this twice now.

The motor that spins the disk rests on rubber shocks. The rear shocks wear out over time allowing the disk to set uneven and rub eventually stopping the disk and giving a disk error. To fix simply put one small flat washer under each of the rear shocks this will level the motor and stop it from rubbing.

WANT EJECT


remove the top: inside under the disk carousel you will find a small locking pawl remove the disk carousel and you will see it pull gently on the carousel to locate it release the pawl and, the tray will slide right out (be sure to turn the carousel to the #1 position closest to the front before reassembling)

Adding A DVD Player to an existing Digital TV box


You should connect the changer to the tv, not the digital box. It will still get the signal.

CD changer eject button does not work. Three discs are inside. Changer works. Good sound is produced. But unable to eject disc changer to change discs.


Inspect the tray or door to see if there is a very small hole in it. If so, this is an 'emergency' ejection hole and a standard paper clip, unfolded, can be inserted there to manually eject the tray. This is a real common problem caused by the slippage of a clutch mechanism that is supposed to protect the tray mechanics from being damaged if the tray is somehow impeded during its travel.  It must be tougher than rocket science to properly design this feature -

Toshiba sd-4205 5-dvd carousel changer declares mecha error during startup, will not eject tray.


This may not work for everyone, but.....
I had the same problem with the Toshiba SD-3205. After unplugging, trying button combos, etc, nothing worked. I could here a slight whine inside the machine, and then again...."MECHA ERROR".
I turned the unit on its side to see if there was a manual tray button on the bottom. Nothing. Then just to try it, I turned the machine off and on again while on its side.
It started up, I heard a clatter, and then the display changed to "INSERT DISC". I placed it the right way up again and pressed "OPEN TRAY" and it worked!
My theroy: There was one DVD in the carousel, and I think last time the tray shut, it got wedged somehow and prevented the carousel from rotating. Turning the machine on its side and pressing "OPEN" is what dislodged the disk.

Mecha error


I had the same problem. My unit would not eject CDs. I was able to fix it by hitting the reset button. That restarted the whole unit and reset all the settings as well, but now I'm not having any issues with ejecting CDs.

Mecha error is a Mechanical Error. This means that this is an actual physical malfunction of the unit. Sometimes pressing the reset button can realign some of the mechanics but most often this is a problem that requires to be serviced.
