    Default Mechanism error on cd player?

    Has anyone had this error on their cd player? I rarely listen to cd's but I have a couple in there just in case I feel like listening to them. But now whenever I start the car it says mechanism error and the cd's won't load nor eject. My closest dealer is about an hour away so I thought I'd ask here first - and it sucks because I'm about to store my car for 2-3 years. Just wondering if its a common problem(I searched for mechanism error but didn't find anything...) or I just have bad luck lol

    This is a new one on me, sorry. Sounds like something for the dealer to take a look at, warranty FTW...

    You didn't put a CD in with one of those home made paper labels on it by any chance?

    Nope sure didn't - I have 3 cds in there, one is a cd-rw no label at all and the other 2 aren't burnt - even when I don't have it on cd player mode when I start up the car with xm on it still says the error. ugh. guess I will call the dealer just sucks because they are so far away, the chevy dealer close to me closed a few months ago ha. Hope they don't have to get a new cd player or something my car is going in storage friday.

    I would get that fixed before you store it and the warranty expires. Trust me you don't want to have to buy a new one from the dealer.

    My CD changer is giving the Mechanism Error message as well. It just started today. I unloaded a CD and that's when it started. It wouldn't get ready to load a new CD and wouldn't load any other CDs. I tried the wait 45 seconds after shutting off and removing the key/opening the door and hitting eject. It tried to eject all, but that didn't happen and it gave the error again. I tried restarting the car several times, then waiting a while before trying again. The sucky thing is that I just got it back from having a bad gas cap replaced THIRTY MINUTES EARLIER. It has impeccable timing.

    Update: It started working the next morning, which wasn't surprised based on what I've read. After backing up my new CDs, I put them in and they seem to work fine. I even ejected one of the CDs that was in there. Go figure.

    THIRD!!!

    I got the "Mechanism Error," tonight.

    Player won't eject or play.

    Perhaps, I'll get lucky, like the guys above, and it'll just start working, again.

    What's odd is that the CD was in the middle of playing the 5th track of 10, and it just stopped.

    This is my first problem with the car...

    Finally, got back to the car.

    Started it up, hit eject on the player, and it spits out both discs.

    I loaded one disc back into the player, played half a song, and shut 'er down.

    Should I expect this mechanism error to happen, again?

    Or, was this just a "fluke?"
