    My remote does not work and I cannot use the DVD. I installed new batteries and tried to take off the top.

    Same thing goes for me. I called Memorex. They won't replace the remote control under the terms of the limited liabilility. What a piece of junk.

    My remote control will not work with my memorex dvd player model#MVD2022. I can watch movie straight thru by plugging unit in wall only. This unit has no on/off switch on front of player. Have also tried new batteries without success.

I had this problem too and fixed it. It wasn't the remote control but the sensor on the actual unit itself. There was a wire blocking the senor. To fix it I moved the wire so it ran underneath the dvd tray instead of running along the front of the unit.

My remote won't work

Many remote controls freeze up and appear "Dead", but some can be instantly brought back to normal operation by following 4 simple steps.

Use these steps on OEM (original equipment) remote controls for TVs, DVDs, Audio Systems, Satellite and Home Theaters.
Note: If you follow these steps on a universal remote control, you will need your universal's owner's manual to reprogram it.

1) Remove all batteries from the remote
2) While the batteries are out of the remote, push and release every button on the remote control one at a time, until all buttons have been pressed and released at least once. This action drains the capacitors in the remote's circuits and causes the remote's brain to go back to factory defaults.
3) Re-install the batteries, taking care to insure each battery is installed correctly. Use new batteries if you are unsure about the batteries you removed.
4) If this Remote Re-Start procedure is going to work, your remote should now be back to normal. Try it.
If your remote works, Great. If not, you can shop for a new OEM remote control at 1 800 Remotes Factory original replacement remote controls

My remote control does not get the light on with batteries brand new...remote control does not work

Check the battery contacts in its battery comparment for any rust or dust accululated. Clean them well before insrting batteries. If all are OK, the fault should be with its internal circuit board. If so, you have to open the remote control to rectify it. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, check this link. Pull up older posts there, either by its left side bar, or see it in 'Timeslide' window. One among the posts have details about how to check and repair a remote control.

Remote control for vmb070 does not work

There should be a clear indication on your remote where the battery compartment is. Usually there is a slideoff cover that has to be removed. Some remotes have covers that are difficult to remove. Once you have the compartment open, you can remove the batteries. Check for signs of corrosion inside the compartment and clean it before installing new batteries. Be sure to observe proper polarity when installing new batteries

My remote control does not work suddenly

Try installing new batteries such as Duracell batteries. Make sure they are installed properly in the remote with positive to positive nodes and negative to negative node. If you own a digital camera, you can test the remote to see if it is working. Point remote at camera (powered on) and press a button on the remote. If you see a blue / purple light on the remote's led, then the remote is working. If not, then the remote is probably broken and you need to buy a new one.
