E-mecha appears to be nothing more than an interlock. hitting reset clears the interlock, but if the problem has not been fixed, then the interlock will trip again, preventing operation. Determine why the radio goes into mechanical failure to begin with. Once fixed, the interlocks will be made and the radio will play. There are a number of events that all have to complete sucessfully including feedback from sensors to maintain the e-mecha interlock. One of your sensors is not being made, either by a sensor problem or by a mechanical issue that prevents the sensor from tripping. -Steve

My radio/ 6 disc CD player.

Both. Check the power line that is supposed to power the clock and memory circuits when you turn off the ignition.

And your player has lost the ability of the laser to focus on the disc - hence the error message.

Clarion VRX925VD gives me an error6 code when trying to play dvd's

Error 6.CD error message. Could not read data from disc because it is upside-down. it's mean the problem caused by the optical lens of your can try to clean first the surface of the lens..You can clean the lens with rubbing alcohol or one of the lens cleaner discs. If that doesn't work, I would guess the pickup is bad. At which point you would be better off just buying a new CD mech. But, if I remember correctly, most of Clarion's CD mech's are really expensive; 70-160$

It's up to you to decide if you want to replace it or not. Hopefully help

My CD player has a disc stuck in it. It keep making a sound like its trying to eject it but finally displays a message "Mech Error." Does anyone know how to dislodge the CD?

This happens to just about everyone and the only way to get it out is with tweezers or a tool of that nature that can pull the cd out without damaging the cd player

I have a pioneer 6 disc in dash changer in my car (model 1805), and when I try to switch between cd's it usually stops playing and flashes error 4. the only way I can get it to play again is to turn my car...

These changers have a problem with some switches that are on top of the cd mech. They must be cleaned with the proper chemical and not too much being used. You can easily spill it into the cd mech where the laser is at and cause a lot of damage to the laser.
There are micro switches that detect the position of the disc tray going into and out of the magazine and when the cd mech actually loads the cd into position to play it.

When you turn your car off and back on again, it reset the micro enough to where it can start over again.

This is not a job for anybody who is not experienced with this type of work, you could try, but then it is very likely you could cause more damage to the changer than when you started.

I can offer you more help if you like, let me know.
