I was having this same problem and it seemed to always happen on cold days!! Happend about three months ago and the tv did not work for three days...just happend again this morning. All you have to do to fix it is to leave the tv turned on for about 15-20 minutes with just the sound working. Than turn the tv off and back on and it should work. You may also cover with blanket during process to speed it up. Do this whenever needed as it should only happen during colder months or if you have a/c in house turned on really high. I myself have a room in the basement where it stays cooler..add in the snowy weather we have been getting and it is no wonder the tv was too cold.

This problem does not just consume the memorex brand but just about all of the flat panel tvs.. Televisions with longer times between uses are more supceptible.

Hope this helps!!

Closed captioning will not turn off on Memorex MT 2025D. I have tried everything and it shows CC as "OFF" in the menu but it is STILL on. Any suggestions? This is driving me crazy!


This maybe a powerline glitch. Reset the TV may help. Disconnect TV from powerline for 5 minutes, then reconnect and power on?

Check the power supply module for bad DC filter caps first, then check the backlight inverter board for shorts.

Compaq 1701 monitor blank screen


If you plan to DIY repair, please read below and look at the pictures so you will know what to look for.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

I HAVE A MEMOREX (MMP8640A) AND IT WON'T COME ON.


reinstall the firmware, following the next steps:

Download the firmware from Memorex site (www.memorex.com) but use the firmware for MMP8620 NOT the one for MMP8640, otherwise you will finish with your player starting with a blank screen.

FIRMWARE UPDATE INSTRUCTIONS FOR MMP8640.
1. Make sure the unit is powered off.
2. Plug one end of the USB cable into the USB port on your PC.
3. Click on the start button on the lower left hand corner on you PC.
4. Highlight Programs, on the drop down page highlight Memorex Aptitude Digital Audio Player.
5. On the drop down window click on “Memorex Aptitude Firmware Download”.
6. Memorex Aptitude Firmware Download Window will open with a notice “PLEASE CONNECT
DEVICE”.
7. Press and hold down the MENU button on the MP3 player at the same time connect the other end of the
USB cable to the USB port on the player.
8. Firmware Download Window will begin initializing.
9. Keep holding down the MENU button on the player until the Firmware Download Window displays
“READY”.
10. Release your finger from the MENU button.
11. In the Firmware Download Window, put a check mark beside Format Data Area.
12. Click on the START button in the Memorex Aptitude Download window.
13. Wait until the screen says “firmware download complete”.
14. Click on the CLOSE button.
15. Disconnect the USB cable from the player. The player will turn on by itself. If the player doesn’t turn
on automatically, press the power button.
Please note if an ERROR message appears on the display of the player when the player powers on, you
need to repeat steps 1 - 15.
WARNING: DO NOT INTERUPT FIRMWARE DOWNLOAD PROCEDURE


Hope it helps, I solve the problem just like this.
