Question about Emerson MS9700 CD Shelf System

Does not turn on

After unplugging and plugging into another outlet, the player does not come on at all. It's as thought there is no power to the player. Tried another outlet,still nothing. When we bought the same model player for Christmas, we had the same problem. We took it back to store and traded for this one, plugged it in and it worked fine. Now this one is doing it. Is there maybe a reset swithc we can't see?

Re: Does not turn on

How long did it sit unplugged before you moved it to a different outlet? I had a CDrom that had a weird problem where if i unhooked the drive for a short period it would flip out and the tray would go in and out non stop. If i unhooked it for a day or so it would work fine. It had somthing to do with a cap inside started to dishcharge or somthing and it lowered voltage to a chip inside then when power came back it was at a low voltage that caused a weird problem. When it sits with no power for a longer period it would go completly dead then when it was hooked up it was fin like it was new. Maybe you didnt have the unit unhooked from power long enough for the power to completly drain from the unit? let it sit over night or a few days and see what it does.

No reset switch but I would bring this up to the store manager where you bought the unit and if he dosent do anything for ya then insist he give ya emersons factory repirs or locate the addy and phone # on the paper work that came with the unit .. if there not totals dreebs the store should exchagange it or have it repaired under warrantee

My teac mc-dx50i subwoffer wont turn on and its even plugged in

About all you can do is to make sure it has power and input from the main system. Past that, the amplifier in the subwoofer is most likely damaged. For more information, please visit my website at Thank you.

I bought a Bose power supply. I can plug it into the system but not into mains. It is missing a cable like a figure 8 on its side?

This is a relatively standard 120V cord that you are missing.
Commonly found plugged into DVD players and VCRs. If you have an old DVD player or VCR, see if you can't snag the power cord from it, and use it to connect the Inverter to the outlet.
Or buy one.

How do i turn off the demo mode?

The "DEMO" mode initializes when power is initiated in the unit for the first time.You cancel it by turning turning the power on by using the button the unit or the remote.If you unplug the unit from the power outlet between uses, and plug it in will go back to the demo mode.this can be avoided by leaving the unit plugged in between uses and/or install 3 AA batteries in the battery compartment in the lower rear behind the main battery compartment .these batteries are memory is not necessary to instal the 9 size D batteries for portable use unless you use it as a portable...I hope this was helpful...

Can't get video to work so bose works with tv sound

We fixed it. We had everything hooked up right, but - stupid us - we didn't turn the sound off on the TV. Once I turned the TV's sound setting to off, I flipped the speaker switch a few times on the Bose remote, then turned up the volume on the Bose and it worked.
