SOURCE: my dvd player stopped working and all i want to do at this point is remove my rented dvd.

If you just want to take out a DVD here's what to do:

1.Take off the top cover:
- remove five screws on the back (indicated by little arrows)
- remove two screws on each side (there are only two, this should be obvious)
- when looking at the back of the unit, slide it up and towards you.

You should now be able to see your DVD. However there is a piece covering it.

2. Take off the top of drive:
- remove two screws, (one on each side). They are very small (probably black) and on the top of the cover, on the far left and right. They might be hidden under small rubber squares. If so, just peel the squares off.
- The cover should come right off.
- lift out the disc

3. Reassemble

good luck,

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.

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.

Stuck on standby mode I have unpluged and it still is stuck on standby


It sounds like power supply problem, I have found that sometimes the main filter capacitor opens causing the machine to fail. It will take a professional to determine if that is the case or there is something else wrong.

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.
