Question about Car Audio & Video
When I went to eject the 3 cd's it ejected 1 but now it won't eject the other two. It gives me an error message "mechanism err".
I have a similar problem. My player just doesnt play anything anymore. I was not even able to eject or load any CDs. I brought it to a radio shop, and the guy was not able to fix it. He removed all the CD's and suggested me to buy a new one. I found on internet repair service Automotive Radio and Changers Repair Services :: 6 CD Changer Error Fixing and they fixed it for 199+shipping... Don't even try to repair it youself.

In both of these cases, the in-dash CD changer will probably need to be repaired or replaced due to internal mechanical damage.
Direct replacements can be purchased from the dealer - you could also replace with an aftermarket radio or a used radio from a junkyard, eBay, etc.(a reputable junkyard or eBay seller will give you a refund/replacement if the unit is DOA - look for them to advertise this fact).
If you want to have your radio repaired, there are repair shops who specialize in factory stereo equipment, such as http://www.sound-repair.com/, http://www.carradiorepairs.com/, and http://www.carstereohelp.com/, among others. I cannot vouch for any of those sites as I haven't personally dealt with them, but they look knowledgeable and professional in my opinion, and their advertised prices are much lower than a replacement from a dealer would be.
As far as radio removal - Pattyp54, if you give me year/make/model of your car I can give you instructions.
Guest with the 2004 Visteon changer - you'll need Ford radio removal tools (available at Wal-Mart and auto parts stores in the car stereo section, approximately $5). They are u-shaped with slight tapers on the ends. Insert these into the holes on the ends of the radio face (you'll want them angled as much as possible with the pin ends going outward towards the dash). Once they are inserted about 1/2-3/4" or so, pull the u-ends outward and pull the radio toward you - it may take some jiggling but should release.
