DVDs presumed stuck and the player won't eject

After receiving this version from my 5 year old son, it appears that there are two DVDs stuck in my Onkyo DV-CP702 changer. The changer will not eject, and it comes up with the message "mech err" on the visual diaplay. Can anyone let me know ifthis problem is fixable and if so what the next step is. thanks.

    Had the exact same problem. Did have some discs stuck in there and got them out by shaking the machine upside down. However, after I got them out and plugged it back in I still had the same "Mecha Err" problem.

    I decided to unscrew the top and take a peak under there and lo-and-behold there was still another disc in there that had gotten wedged under a metal tab.

    Put the machine back together and it worked. Never hurts to "look under the hood."

Just encountered same issue (Mech Err) and same solution worked. Turning on side released four cds. Had to remove top cover to remove the remaining two. Put it back together, plugged it in and it works!

Hi, If you feel comfortable opening the unit, then you may remove the top cover normally held by 2 - 4 screws. The tray should be visible and most units have a locking bar right at the center to hold the discs down. Removing this (2 screws normally, 1 at each end of the bar) would expose fully the tray with the 2 discs on top. Remove the discs and put the locking bar back with the screws. You can test the unit without the top cover. Please be reminded about safety precaution when working with active/live units and laser equipment. Power it up and check if the "mech err" still shows. If not you're set to cover it up, otherwise, your probably better off seeking the services of a qualified technician. This is a generic method which normally should apply to most CD/DVD units. Good luck and kind regards.

I have a NV-DX110B about 11 years old. I'm getting

Your camera appears slightly older than mine so I will do my best for you. Have you tried ejecting the tape with the power off? If I have problems I slide the eject button when the camera is off but plugged in and the tape can be ejected. I suspect the tape mechanism is in trouble. When a tape stuck in mine I had to literally force the cover open. But this is a last resort.

Give my suggestion a try and apologies if you have already tried that...

DVD won!t EJect at all

The DVD might be stuck in the disc tray for whatever reason. To get it out, you could remove all the screws on the back and bottom. Slide out the cover to retrieve the DVD. Plug it in to see if it still works. If it still appears to be working, put it back together and hope that future DVDs won't get stuck.

My dvd drive is stuck I think my son put too many dvds in there ad not it wont open model number is APEX DVD combo GT2015DV

If it has been overloaded with too many dvd's, then you won't be able to eject them. You'll have to disassemble and remove the discs manually, if you are not comfortable doing this, call an electronics shop, most large ones (FutureShop, BestBuy) will preform repairs. Cheers!

My 3 year olded put 2 dvds in the player and it s jamed, wont eject. Any suggestions?

Either try and tease it out through the slot using an old CD with a piece of double sided tape stuck to the edge.

If that does not work , then the player will have to be removed from the dashboard and the cover taken off to gain access to the jammed CDs inside

IMPORTANT : Make sure you have the security code BEFORE removing it (assuming that you radio requires a Security Code)

Here is a useful website showing how to remove different radios + CD players.

My onkyo dvd player is reading mechna err

This is usually caused by a broken tooth on one of the cam gears. While relatively inexpensive for the parts, the unit must be rebuilt in the correct order and alignment. This is not a DIY repair. It is possible that the unit is just confused and out of timing. Try unplugging it for 5-10 minutes. Plug it back in and see if it resets. While I doubt it will, it is worth a try. If not, then the unit should be serviced. Figure on $60-$75 for the repair.
