This may not work for everyone, but.....
I had the same problem with the Toshiba SD-3205. After unplugging, trying button combos, etc, nothing worked. I could here a slight whine inside the machine, and then again...."MECHA ERROR".
I turned the unit on its side to see if there was a manual tray button on the bottom. Nothing. Then just to try it, I turned the machine off and on again while on its side.
It started up, I heard a clatter, and then the display changed to "INSERT DISC". I placed it the right way up again and pressed "OPEN TRAY" and it worked!
My theroy: There was one DVD in the carousel, and I think last time the tray shut, it got wedged somehow and prevented the carousel from rotating. Turning the machine on its side and pressing "OPEN" is what dislodged the disk.

Had same problem. Was no "extra disc" rattling around loose in machine though.

Got "mech error" message every time powered up.

Problem "went away" after I.

1. Took top off.
2. Pushed tray out manually.
3. Plugged in.
4. Hit "Power" button WHILE HOLDING TRAY OUT and preventing it from retracting immediately.
5. Let go of tray when carousel started to turn.
6. Machine subsequently returned to behaving normally.

NOTE: Before I held on to the tray I had hit the disc selection buttons a number of times during prior attempts to clear the "mech error" message. One of those "disc selection" commands may have still been in a memory queue somewhere when I held onto the tray.

Can i open the dvd player from the key board


Not that I'am aware of, on the front of the DVD tray there is a small hole. Get a small pin insert in the hole until you hear a click, the tray should pop open for you to retrieve the disc.

It sounds like the processor in the TV or the DVD player processor is locked up, and if you unplug both units from the wall for 40 MIN, that should reset the processors back to normal.

DVD won't eject from Toshiba DVD player. I have already taken cover off and can manually engage the tray. When I try to eject with the remote I just get a little ''lock'' icon on my TV screen.


Press setup subtitle 3 audio 0 to unlock ...worked for me. Thank a user on Videohelp.com for solution:

WANT EJECT


remove the top: inside under the disk carousel you will find a small locking pawl remove the disk carousel and you will see it pull gently on the carousel to locate it release the pawl and, the tray will slide right out (be sure to turn the carousel to the #1 position closest to the front before reassembling)

Adding A DVD Player to an existing Digital TV box


You should connect the changer to the tv, not the digital box. It will still get the signal.

Hey this is a great site!
I was having a similar problem with my Toshiba SD-K860. Bobbyj, thanks for the link to the SD-4900 service manual, it was extremely helpful even though it was a different model. I could not find an emergency eject pinhole, and leaving the unit unplugged for a while did not help (two suggestions found on other sites), so I simply took the whole thing apart, got the disc out, found the eject slider on the bottom of the tray, massaged the tray open and closed, and put everything back together again. The connections were solid and the belt was in tact so everything seemed to be fine. Once I reassembled and powered it back up it worked again!
I posted a more detailed solution on my problems to solve site, which is similar to this one:
