The CD player has a sensor-switch, that the cpu isn't getting a signal from. The switch could be dirty, worn, or broken. The switch will have to be inspected. You might try blowing some compressed air into the switch. If that doesn't help, the switch will have to be checked out first, then the unit will have to troubleshot further, in case the switch proves to be good. Hope it's just some dust in your switch. otherwise the unit will have to be serviced. Get an estimate before having it serviced, since the labor can run a bit of money.

Onkyo six CD changer stuck closed, reads "Mechanical Error" in window...Also, new Onkyo tape deck TA-RW255 tape stuck, won't open and won't turn off.


The Onkyo CD changer has an internal mechanical problem that could be anything from a disc being jammed in the mech, to a bad belt, or a bad IC or supply voltage that goes to the servo circuit. No way to be certain without troubleshooting it. You can open it up and see if a disc is stuck, but unless you have some experience in this sort of thing it is better left to a professional, You can cause more damage than you started with by trying to fix something you don't know that much about.

The tape deck could have any number of problems as well. A bad belt or gear, a defective servo circuit, and the list could go on, but they are all things that also should be checked by a professional.
Most of the time a tape won't eject is form the tape head being engaged and not letting loose of the tape. But since it won't turn off, you have some more serious problems. That is an indication of something not communicating with the microprocessor. It could be a digital transistor, a shorted capacitor, and like before, many other things. Whatever you do, don't force the tape deck open. It will destroy the head assembly and it may even void your warranty (you did say it was new).
You need to find an authorized Onkyo service center near you. Contact Onkyo if you can not find one yourself.
This really is the best action you could take. Onkyo is a very good brand, and in most cases is worth getting repaired. If it were some type of cheap-o brand it wouldn't matter what you did to it because replacing it would always be cheaper than paying for a repair. That is not the case with your equipment.

If I can be of further help, just ask me.

VCR


you have probably bent the tab that holds the tape end sensor or its light. The tapes have a clear section at the end of the tape and the light shines through to the sensor to tell the unit that the tape is finished. The light should not pass through the recordable part of the tapes. If anything is bent the light may shine on the sensor and tell the unit you're at the end of the tape and to shut off. Some units have a tape tension sensor also that tells the unit that the tape is broken and to shut off. Only way to know is to remove power and take it apart and look for anything that may be bent. Stay away from the rotating head assembly and the posts that the tap travels on. Do not apply power with the unit open. Do not load a tape and remove power as some units freeze in the loaded position and will not load new tapes unless manually placed back in the unloaded position.

Insert the tape


There are a variety of things that can go wrong. The process of elimination starts by taking the 2 screws out of the cover and removing. While the compartment is open, push the eject button and observe if there is any motion with gears or not. The main cam gear should rotate a few degrees in one direction and then back. If you see no motion at all then you have problems that are going to require real work. Most often when this is the situation, this main gear, which doubles as the mode switch, is broken and this is a sophisticated repair to replace.
