Hideaway brain unit on my kenwood KVT-617 doesn't work

My KVT-617 display unit was stolen out of my dash, but they neglected to snag the items under the rear seat: the "brain" hideaway unit, the HD radio receiver, the 10 disc CD changer, the navigation unit, and the powered subwoofer.
Everything was replaced via the insurance except the sub because the new system was not compatible with the old components. Make me an offer on the items you want!

My screen displays mecha error

This is an internal problem with the CD/DVD mechanism that can not be repaired without professional service. You can always try running a cleaning disc thru it, but that is unlikely to help.

This is a very exspensive system and should only be service by qualified service technicians.

There are no tricks to getting it to work.
