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.

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; to which you want set-up codes; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts. ..

When playing commercial DVD's, my DR-MV150B starts to stall. It stops with the picture on the televsion screen, but can't see the rest of the movie. Any thoughts? The disc does eject.

My factory DVD player will except disc the ejects it


If I understand your rather cryptic post correctly...

This very well could be a Blue-Ray disk loaded into a
non-Blue-Ray capable DVD player. Your car player's capabilities MUST match the disc, otherwise, the disc won't play.

I've run into this very same problem with my home DVD players. Which both are non-Blue-Ray capable, but I was able to verify the Blue-Ray discs on my PC.

Veon tv manual


The eject button on the remote appears as an upward-pointing arrow with an underline - see below image. The eject button on the TV has a similar symbol.

However, I suspect that in your case, you might not be having a Remote.

This link says that your TV doesn't come with a Remote and DVD cannot be ejected without the remote :

DVD player wont eject dicks or play just say's disc error


You need to insert dicks into the DVD player, also, once it ejects the dicks, you should wait 20 minutes or so before attempting to eject more dicks.
