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.

A friend who blind has purchase this item some time ago 2007 I believe. We have a number problems with it. 1/ There is a hum of 50 c/s from the deck (I assume from Mains Transformer) when switched on and...


initially it sounds like a ground hum Something is touching ground inside. have you had it open? Look at the out put SSR's and follow them to the out put jacks. can you replace the jacks if need be? have you tried different cables? Does it do it if you use another deck other than the Onkyo. If all looks good and you think the Onkyo is the issue you may have bad IC SSR(s). Do you have the Tech ability to replace the outputs {solid state relays}?
Let us know what conclusions you have come up with. Other wise the sad part is a $110 dollar repair bill or $189 new amp/deck.

I have just been given a Hitachi ax-m68 amplifier.. can it only be used with the other seperates it comes with such as the cd and tuner, or can i use it for decks and a mixer somehow? I dont have the cd...


to use it with either decks or a mixer check to see if it has record out and play in ("REC OUT"/"PLAY IN") for tape 1 or tape 2 if so you can use a mixer connected there. If no tape inputs or record out you could only use the CD ("tuner" is a internal selection not an input selection) as play back connections.
Post back if you have more questions

Mechanical Error on 5 Disc Onkyo Exchanger


hello there,

If the unit says mechanical error on the display, unfortunately, there really isn't much that you can do on your end. it is more on the hardware part of the unit and this would have to go to a repair center of Onkyo so they can service it (under warranty if you have your receipt).

I have a Sharp CD-BA2650 3 cd, two tape deck, and radio combo. The Cd turntable sticks when one cd ends and changes to the next. The rotation stops as the motor makes a humming noise, then the lcd says...


There is a belt inside the cd changer that needs to be replaced. Once yo utake the top off the unit you will need to turn the unit on again and open the try. Once it is open look at the back area where the motor is located and you will find it under a circuit board. You need to lift the motor up by pushing the plastic clips that hold the board in place and pull it up a little and you will see how the belt is on the pully. It is very hard to describe how to do this in a forum like this, but if you are careful you should be able to do this.

The part number for the belt is:

92LBE231616

You can get the belt here:

I hope this helps, if so a FixYa! rating would be appreciated. After all, it is the only reward we get for offering people like yourself this free help.

Let me know if I can be of any more help.
