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.

I was having the same problem and when it would try to eject the dvd I would just take another dvd and use it to push the dvd up, and it would come out. A few times of doing that made it stop doing that for some reason, and hasn't done it since. hope this helps!

This may sound stupid, but if you have a CD in the unit and when you try to eject it you get the MECHA error, what I do is...

Try...
1.With CD in unit, I press EJECT and then see if CD stays stuck, I then take another CD and us it to push the CD back into the unit. Then I press the eject button again until the CD in the unit pops out.

2. If #1 dosen't work, I then PUSH the eject BUTTON and then slightly add pressure to the opening where the CD comes out using my thumb.

I normally find this problem happening with certain CD. For some reason some CD seems THICKER than others. The CD's that seem thin pop out just fine.

Anyway, it not HIGH SCIENCE, but I hope it helps. It works for me. Good luck!

Our 2014 odyssey had mechanic error when inserting DVDs. We bought it used, unfortunately the second day it stopped working on us. It also kept saying eject repeatedly and we thought perhaps a second dvd was in there. Tried the old double sided tape on a gift card trick and wiggled around. The player then said no disc. We popped in a disc and it worked!

I searched on so many forums and nothing. Hope this helps someone else out. Maybe a mechanical piece was misaligned. We were going to take the player apart and search for coins next, glad we didn't have to

My DCFC Narrow Stairs disc does this every time I put it in my DNX890HD. I also use anything similar width to push in and under the front edge of the stuck disc and lift up when pushing eject. I finally took it out of the truck but the Kenwood displayed the 'Mecha Error' every time. That disc is a bit thicker imo and mine had a rough edge, I wanted to shave the edge down but never really bothered with it, I just bought an iPod with more storage on eBay instead!

Recently the CD player stopped working with a cd inside it says error 1/error 2 after it trys to load it also won't eject the cd at the same time this started the usb also stopped charging my devices

Try to put another cd in on top of the stuck one . don't force it , just push in a little ways then pull it out . Sometimes that will make player eject the stuck one. I would take it back to whoever installed the radio.

Mecha error

Otherwise known as a mechanical error. The CD will not eject/insert without assistance. I have found a workaround for this, but have yet to fix it. If you take another CD and hold it inside the CD slot just beneath the ejecting CD, it will help to guide the CD out of the track. I also have to use a similar method to push the disc into the track as well.

My screen displays mecha error

This is an internal problem with the CD/DVD mechanism that can not be repaired without professional service. You can always try running a cleaning disc thru it, but that is unlikely to help.

This is a very exspensive system and should only be service by qualified service technicians.

There are no tricks to getting it to work.

Shelf cds is blocked SONY CMT-HP7

To get the cds to play, and 5 to eject, you can try taking off the sides of the consul and using compressed air. As for the shelf problem, I'm not really sure.

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 Erro

The problem could be a belt if the unit uses one for the CD try, a bad motor or the motor drive servo circuit. There are no user replaceable parts inside this unit as it is solid state and unfortanatly, there is no quick fix for this, except, taking the unit out of the vehicle and bench testing it. Im afraid you will need to seek out the assistance of an authorized servicer. Good Luck PS please do not forget to rate this thread

DV-C501 MECHA ERROR

I have actually had the same problem multiple number of times now and am going to suggest you a rather "crude sounding" solution!! First, atleast in my case the problem usually occurs when you turn the DVD player off while it still has DVD/CD inside and then turn it back on a little while later. This is how the "solution" works. I just disconnect the player and give it a good shake !! This somehow dislodges the "stuck" disc inside and voila, the player opens up after reconnecting and pressing the open/close button. Sometimes it takes more than one "good shake". Sounds rather severe but works everytime !!
