C-81 error, disc won't eject

Hi, i've had this unit for 5 yrs now and this is first time i've encounter this c-81 error message. there's one dvd stuck inside, and i'm not sure how to get it out. is there a way to remove it without taking to a repair shop? if not, where can i find one in san francisco (does it have to be a sony specialist)?  thanks.

A lot of "aged" problems relate to the power supply with this type of unit. If you are a handy chap and know what capacitors are you will find that finding and replacing the "dry" caps in the power supply will fix most problems including streaky pix and crackly audio.

Navigation not working get disk reading error message upon starting car and every few minutes afterward


Check for a scratched or dirty Navi DVD disc. Clean or have the scratches polish out at your local game store. Video game stores usually have a disc repair machine that polishes out scratches.
Note: In some cases the Navi unit can cause rotational scratches on the DVD. If this is the case than the Navi unit will have to be replaced.

Mechanism error


If your unit is still making noise like it is trying to eject, then give it a little help by using a tweezer to pull the disc out after you pressed eject. Then clean the eject's mechanism rollers by using a couple of Q-tips and alcohol. Stick the slightly wet Q-tip into the center of the disc player slot until you reach the rollers after that slide it against the rollers from side to side, when you do that the sliding switches will trigger the eject mechanism and the rollers will start to roll. After afew times change the Q-tip and repeat. Allow 10-15 minutes for it to dry out completly. It should work after that. But if your unit is making clicking sounds or no sound at all right now and it display mechanical error message, then you have deep mechanical problems. There are services on Ebay for about $100, contact Rick for service. He own SAME DAY AUDIO SERVICES, he is very reliable. You can call me too:801-414-4566. Good luck.

Stuck dvd disc.


Hi there

Page 80 in the instruction manual tells you how to do this.

In case you don't have a manual, do the following:
While the unit is off, press and hold the stop key (shown on the unit as a button with a small black square on it) for about 5 seconds. It may take longer to eject depending on the disc.

Hope this helps

DVDs presumed stuck and the player won't eject


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.
