Question about Denon D-M50S CD Shelf System
I have experienced the same problem which turned out to be very simple to resolve.
The player immediately after being turned on and following the usual 'Hello', would display 'mechanical error'. It was accompanied by a whirring noise rather than the usual disc shifting sound and noticeably there was no 'clump' as the selected disc fell to the turntable. It turned out to be the Clamping mechanism located to the rear of the carousel mech. not having moved through it's full drop and so not locating the disc properly. The cause was that the lubrication of the plastic lifting components had dried out and the clamping mechanism was not moving freely enough. I think this results in a 'Race' situation with other moving parts of the carousel causing a jam. By gently relocating the jammed trays and ensuring free movement of the clamping mechanism the problem was resolved. a point to note. The lubrication appears to be a specialist one used particularly for plastics. Other types I have tried will not work well especially when cold.
