Generic problem for all Memorex DVD Players

Hi I just installed a Memorex external drive to my HP desk top following the set up instructions. The instructions say to "Follow The On Screen Instructions to Complete the Installation". I never got any on screen instructions. I rebooted, and still no instructions. It does not work.
I need help!!!

If it is the usb external means check whether the USB ports are working properly or not ...

if you are connecting and trying from the front usb then once you try inserting in the backside port of the cpu ..

normally the external drives are only detected by the windows it is cannot be bootable at the startup before starting of the operating system ...

so you must be using minimum windows XP and if you are using it then connect it after booting into the windows ..

then it will detect a new hardware and you can start using the external drive ...

if there is any manufacture cd install the software if any ..

if you still persist the same problem then check it in other system ...

if you still persist the same problem then there may be some manufacture defect just take replacement as you will be having the warranty ....

Change the audo/video cord, next try a DVD cleaning kit and follow instructions, if no change! the laser pickup assembly will need to be replaced, not cost effective to repair.

I am getting a "no disc" error on my memorex dvd player and was wondering if there was a way to fix this

There are a few things that you will want to troubleshoot:
First, if you have other DVD's that are being read with no problem, then either your DVD is scratched or unreadable or is in a format your DVD player cannot read (some of the newer DVD's will not read in older players) or your rating level is set to block the DVD.
If your player is not reading ANY DVD's after working normally, check to see that the carriage is not damaged and that it opens and retracts cleanly and smoothly, Use a professional cleaning kit and follow the instructions. Still not detecting your DVD's MP3 Discs or Video CD's? The lens and laser apparatus can be damaged and can fail over time for many reasons from being struck or jostled, a power surge, and just normal wear and tear. It might be time for a new one.

I never set the parental control but somehow it is on and I need the password to remove it

Did you make your own password or is it the generic one? Try either 0 by count 1,2,3 etc or start with 1,2,3 on up to what amount of numbers you need to enter. Not sure if that will work but I had one that was set and was the generic code. Just count from 1 on up.

Teac digital set top box prompt every five seconds

I had the same problem - pretty easy fix. You'll need a usb flash drive with all other files removed. Go to following link:

Print out the instructions and make sure you have winzip installed on your computer. Instructions were pretty easy to follow and seemed to fix the problem. I haven't watched the TV for a long period of time, but it seemed to sort out the problem you described and system seemed to run better than previously eg. didn't hang - receception better.

Good luck
