The disc comes out to the two spring switches that slide apart when iserting or ejecting a disc and sticks there. after a few moments, the screen will say mechanism error. I am able to get the disc out if I use something to slide the spring switches appart. Any help would be appreciated.
It seems you have opened the top cover of your unit. Now take a dry cotton bud clean the roller which you can find right in front. Please do not use any liquid to clean the same.

Whenever you work on a VCR, or the mechanism goes faulty, the mode switch - which tells the electronics what mode the mechanism is in - has to be set up correctly. This is a very complex procedure and unless you have done it before you will need a service manual. Mostly because the mechanism is rarely ever set up in eject mode. At the moment you VCR is trying to work out what mode the mechanism is and is trying to eject a tape, when the mechanism has already done so!
1. First shut down the system by flipping the power switch in the back off.
2. Hold down the eject disc button.
3. While still holding down the eject button, flip the power switch to turn back on your PS3.
4. When the green light comes on, wait a few seconds then tap the eject button a couple times. The fan will run on full power and the disc will eject.
This wil show you how to take it apart if that becomes necessary. But try this instead. First hold the eject button down for 5 seconds. I that fails look for a tiny hole near the disc slot. Use a straightened paper clip and push it in the hole firmly. This should eject the disc. Another option is to use firmware to eject the disc. Follow these directions:
To eject a disc with Open Firmware commands, follow these steps:
Restart the computer.
Immediately after the startup sound, press and hold the key combination Command-Option-O-F. Note: The Command key has the Apple and () icons on it.
Release the keys when you see a white screen that says "Welcome to Open Firmware."
At the prompt, type: eject cd
Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject any disc that is present, and "ok" appears behind your command when the action is complete.
Try tilting the wii at several angles. The disc may come out. If not try hitting the eject button at several angles.
If all the above fails, this(although risky) may work.
1. find another disk.
2. slide into slot, just enough to get under the cd(NOT ALL THE WAY IN)
3. lift or puch down on the disk depending on the side the new disk is on
4. hit eject while lifting or puching.
5. If this does not work the system may need to be sent out
Just took one apart tonight. Same problem, put in cd-played fine-push eject then click click click. 2004 nissan sentra 140 watt single cd player/radio. This dash comes apart by pulling the top of dash (with the tray) straight out the clips should release. the bottom part had to be pried a little, then remove four screws and slide out the radio still attached to the mount and dash etc. One screw holds on the top of the stereo. After removing the screw you must pry the top off. Now it gets a little tricky, you must remove the cd player portion, however there are 5 tiny springs holding it down to some pads. The two springs in the rear are under a piece of the stereos frame held on by two screws, I had to use various sizes of tweezers to get the springs off. Lift the player out of the radio about an inch, you will see one 1/2" ribbon in a connector, the top of the connector slides out along the ribbon to release. The other ribbon about the same size plugs into a small daughter board in the radio, it just pulls out and pushes in (you can feel it is reinforced). once out turn it over and you will see what would be considered a gearbox, (small white gears in a see through case) one of the corners of this case has a screw through it. This corner has broken away from the board letting the gears come apart when trying to eject (this is the clicking). I took a soldering iron and melted the plastic back together and put a small amount of 5-min epoxy on for good measure. When putting back into case you can hook up the ribbon cables before all the spring grief and test it out. Mine worked perfectly again. Be care full when putting back together, there are a lot of little micro switches that must be in the correct position) Example, if the cd is ejected the white arm on the right side must be in the correct position. the read head (laser) must be away from the center of the cd. I believe it was easier to put together with it in the cd-in position (without a cd in it) so the laser must be toward the center of the cd. Don't force the laser, use the worm gear to move it in or out. I couldn't put one of the springs back on but it still works fine Good luck, it's not as hard as it sounds
Unfortunately their is no step by step or guaranteed method to fix this. Here are a few things you could try: turning it off and on, press/hold the eject button, resetting while holding the eject button, shaking or tapping it a little while trying to eject it, holding it different ways ex. face disc opening down towards floor while gently tapping and pressing the eject button. Essentially do whatever you can to get the disc to jar loose, >but whatever you do, don't for any reason stick anything in the slot or try to open the case <Doing this will void the warranty for sure! If none of these work your last resort would be to return it for a new one (providing you still have your receipt and it's less than a year old) or take it to a costly repair guy.
i suggest a try with new disc,problem still remain, i think there is a mechanical problem with disc holder. I suppose you have the facility to use memory stick so why you use the disc just use the memory stick. It is better for you.
to fix the problem you have to go to sony shop..
