Memorex DVD player won't work

The power on light doesn't work. The standby light (red) is lighted. When I press open/close or standby on/off on the remote, nothing happens. I don't see a power switch on the dvd player itself. Can you help me?

SOURCE: Good morning, I have a sansui

You are having a loading tray sensor problem. It is a small leaf switch on the under side of the loading tray. It must be having a contact problem. How it works is when you close the tray at the end of the tray's travel this switch closes and shorts sending a signal to the microprocessor to shut down the loading motor, same happens when you press eject. Sounds simple but is little difficult to access for a first timer. One you get to it all you need is some switch cleaning spray ( even WD40 will work wonders ).
Take professional help it will just take 10 minutes and will cost you only labor charges. You can mess up the timing if you get it wrong and the loading tray may not work properly.

I work for Memorex tech support. Our phone number is 800-919-3647.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your DVD player needs to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. The problem is Memorex doesn't repair their DVD players, they simply replace them when a customer has a warranty claim. If your player is no longer in warranty (the warranty is 90 days from the date of purchase) please call the above number to see if your model qualifies for any out of warranty options. Getting the player repaired locally would cost far more than what you paid for it, and that's if someone could repair it without any replacement parts from Memorex.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

DVD player won't turn on. The red standby light is on. But the player does not work. I've tried unplugging it for 30 seconds but no change


If you didn't have any or have a good power strip the internal power supply could have gotten damaged, if it is under warranty get it replaced. And make sure you have a power strip for electronics at a mininum.

Stuck in Standby


FOr the MVDP1102 Memorex 10.2 portable DVD Player:
I had the same problem. If you open the disc door there is suppose to be a plastic arm underneath the right side of the lid which when you close the lid, with the movie disc in, this arm will press through to a switch inside the machine and that will set the player in load/play mode. Memorex did not have parts for this player, so I unscrewed the bottom and one black screw inside where the lazer light is. This will allow you to handle the bottom back side and see underneath where the screen is you will find the switch. I rigged up a pin wire and did some small drilling. I was successful, but it wasn't easy. Most times I just fail and toss. I thing my son just open the disc door too much and that's how the piece was broken.

My Memorex DVD player will not open or come on


I just fixed a Memorex 2042 DVD player. Before the fix, the standby light was lit, nothing else works (with remote or buttons on the player panel). Opened up the machine, saw a capacitor bulged (1000uf/10v). Did some soldering work and replaced it. All is fine now.

NOTHING WORKS ON DVD PLAYER


My daughters had the same problem, try replacing C411 (I think that was the number on the board), its a 10V 1000uf capacitor in what appears to be the 5V power supply section toward the right rear of the main board, that fixed it. On hers the capacitor was swelled up on the end. I checked it out of the circuit and the DVM I used only indicated it had about 500uf capacity.

Drive door will not open nor will it play


To open the drive door this is not a perfect fix, but it will allow to use it. After the unit is powered on: 1)Hit the "Open/Close" button 2)Wait a while (you will get the timing down) 3)Tap gently, yet briskly at the joint where the plastic faceplate connects with the metal top of the unitat the area situated around the middle of the dvd tray (area in the attached pic, that the red arrow points to)
