If you have no lights or power to the unit, check on the back of the unit to see if there is a twist and pull type knob for a fuse. If so, unplug the unit/player and take the fuse out. If it is damaged/broken/wire element burned/cracked, it will need to be replaced. Take the old fuse with you to make certain of a correct match(volt/amp/slow or fast acting)Most Radio Shack/Walmarts/Ace Hardware stores stock these type of fuses. They are very inexpensive, usually less than a $1 or $2. They are on most home entertainment equipment/t.v.s etc. to prevent some degree of lightning or power spike damage the unit.
BUT! I didn't discover that this unit is not actually made by Durabrand. It's made by GPX and I've included a link to the user manual for this product (It's the same model, but the GPX version is black and sports the GPX logo).
Unfortunately you can't change it. There have been many other users here who have the same complaint, but it's the way the manufacturer made the thing. Don't know why it doesn't remember the last volume setting before it was turned off, but that's the way they did it. Perhaps the most unique solution someone suggested is to switch to the auxiliary input (assuming you don't have anything connected to it) instead of turning off the power. This will quiet it, then you just switch back to the other source when you want to listen again. Maybe a call or email to the manufacturer will get more information. Sometimes, when enough people have the same complaint, they offer some kind of remedy.
I sent a note to the manufacturer. Communication attached below.
We thank you for your interest in GPX and our products. We apologize, but the volume level on the unit is a factory setting that we are not able to override or alter.
Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

With the power off, push the alarm button twice and the clock symbol should go out. This means the alarm is off. Also when the alarm is on and the power is off, you can push the function button to select nothing (buzzer), cd or radio.
Hope it helps, I am trying to find out how to reset the default volume from 17 which is way too loud
