Re: DX-C390 turn on

Use a surge protection power strip (such as the Power Protect AV 600 by Monster Power).

This will elliminate erratic behaviour of the unit, since even minute fluctuations in the power source from unbridled house current will affect the sensitive internal components of the Onkyo DX-C390 6-Disc CD Changer.

No laser, means no laser. Typical symptom of laser failure. Most CD players can have the laser replaced fairly easily and cheaply.
Contact your local technician, and he should be able to replace it quickly.

The display will not light up

When CD exchanger is turned on, it states searching for disc,
then defaults to an error message. Door also not opening all they way since this problem started.

Cd player stopped working

The problem is in the power supply sector of the board, usually caused by a bulging capacitor that needs to be replaced.

Error message (protect) cd plays then goes silent then plays again. have cleaned laser several times with cd cleaner disk.

Dirty lasers don't cause "protection" problems. Are you sure thay message is displayed on the CD player? That word is nowhere in its manual.

I put 2 cd's on top of eachother. now the cd player wont open but it will turn on. when i turn it on it says mechanical error.

You could try gently sliding a thin blade in the top of the tray slot to hold the CDs down whilst, equally gently prising the underside of the tray with a small screwdriver (it may help to press teh open/eject button at the same time).
