To get the cds to play, and 5 to eject, you can try taking off the sides of the consul and using compressed air. As for the shelf problem, I'm not really sure.

SOURCE: I have a Sony MHC-GX470 stereo...it will not play

the mechanism is bad or in human terms the motor that excepts and moves the disc has gone out i reccomend taking it to a repair shop to get a estimate because it may jus be cheaper to replace it.

SOURCE: sony mhc-gx450 cd player is not reading.I used a cd cleaner and d

First unplug the unit and press the power button to make sure all the power is out of the unit. Try to take a cotton qtip and clean the lazer lense with alcohol. after wipe it clean with a new cotton qtip to remove the film the alcohol produces. Do not use a lot of alcohol and drip it all inside of the unit though.
Also if you tried a cd-r try a real copy instead. Make sure your cd's are ok.
Good luck.

Probably means there is something wrong with the DVD drive. Check that a disc is not inserted wrong. You could also try cleaning the DVD lens.

(Of course it was more difficult to reassemble and still doesn't quite fit properly.) But the problem persists. Looks like it over to the repairer. Sorry - No solution here

Cannot open cd tray. Cannot rotate cd's. Plays only one cd and intermittently. Get 'mecha error' message. Had similar problem last year without 'mecha error' message, which was...


In some cases this is due to the main spindle getting jammed or there are mechanical errors which as mentioned needs a reset.

Also in some cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board
