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.

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:

I've had this happen before with car stereo's uh i just normally unscrew the screws out of the top of the player to where you can get to the tray or slot for the cds and force the cd tray or the cd itself out but be careful and not break the cd this might work it usually does for me

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.

CD changer eject button does not work. Three discs are inside. Changer works. Good sound is produced. But unable to eject disc changer to change discs.


Inspect the tray or door to see if there is a very small hole in it. If so, this is an 'emergency' ejection hole and a standard paper clip, unfolded, can be inserted there to manually eject the tray. This is a real common problem caused by the slippage of a clutch mechanism that is supposed to protect the tray mechanics from being damaged if the tray is somehow impeded during its travel.  It must be tougher than rocket science to properly design this feature -

Mecha error


I had the same problem. My unit would not eject CDs. I was able to fix it by hitting the reset button. That restarted the whole unit and reset all the settings as well, but now I'm not having any issues with ejecting CDs.

Mecha error


Mecha error is a Mechanical Error. This means that this is an actual physical malfunction of the unit. Sometimes pressing the reset button can realign some of the mechanics but most often this is a problem that requires to be serviced.
