All this cd systems have the same problem. If you're using burned cd's sometimes they don't work so you need to close the session after burning in your burning program. If you're using original cd's it means that the device needs to be cleaned up (especially the lens) because the structure of a 5 cd combo device gets very dusty after a while. Also from my experience after cleaning it put a cd in each deck (even if it's off) so they could prevent it getting dustier again. Hope it helps, good luck!!

SOURCE: system keeps sayin protect

The word PROTECT appears because there is a short. It can be in your speakers, try running it without the speakers plugged, or look if the wires arent shorting. If it stil ldoes that, its cause there is a short in it, from the output section. The system does that to prevent from damaging the electronic components inside.

SOURCE: CD Player Problems

Manually cleaning the lens
To locate the laser lens, look around the door or drawer of the DVD player and you will see a small circular disc, which is often called the turntable or disc platter. Right off the edge of the platter you should see a small clear lens. There are some manufacturers that have had problems with the lens, depending on the age of the unit. In these problem players, moving the unit to a different location, turning the unit upside down, or sometimes even without moving the unit, the lens can become detached from the laser assembly and floats around inside the unit. You can re-glue it back with a little crazy glue, BUT it must be perfectly centered, and without getting any glue on it. So, if you don’t see the plastic lens, but instead see the laser pick-up assembly, look around for the lens inside the unit and glue it back on.
To clean the lens you must use very little pressure. Take a cotton swab and barely moisten it with plain, non-scented, or oily type alcohol. In a swirling motion, very gently rub the lens until you’ve covered it entirely. Then repeat using the dry end.
If the cleaning didn’t help, don’t despair just yet. You can see if there’s a problem elsewhere in the unit by using a few simple tricks and tips.
First thing you want to see if the unit’s laser is in good working order. This method isn’t foolproof, but most of the time works admirably. When you insert a disc, see if you can look up underneath where the disc sits on the turntable. Observe the laser lens going up and down. If the lens is trying to focus, that’s good! After a few seconds of the lens trying to focus, the platter should start to spin. On almost every CD/DVD unit I've encountered, the unit won't spin unless the laser has properly focused on the surface of the disc. If the unit spins up and and then shuts down, you should check and make sure the laser pick-up assembly slider mechanism is working without any obstructions and that the small chrome rail that it slides on is slightly greased. Don’t go overboard with the grease though, as too much can cause all sorts of problems.
The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and the manufacturer, consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn’t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There’s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also.
If the disc starts to spin slowly and doesn’t come up to speed, the spindle motor that’s attached to the turntable platter is a common problem. There could also be a problem with the spindle motor driver controller IC or the power supply regulator that supplies voltage to the driver IC. If the disc starts to spin and then spins really fast, or stops and starts to spin backwards, your problem is the laser pick-up assembly or the servo control circuit. If you continue to have problems after cleaning and checking the other things listed above, you may have a problem with the player's alignment. Of course, one of the problems you'll face checking alignments on a DVD/CD player is that you’re going to need to use an oscilloscope on most of them. If you have the proper tools and equipment, the first thing to look at is the RF pattern of the unit while its playing. It should be a sharp and clear pattern. If it's dull and smeared, then the laser could be weak.
Also, in these units are very critical alignments called the focus/tracking gains and offsets. When these alignments are off, it can often cause intermittent troubles. As the unit ages and parts change value, so do these alignments, and will need to be checked. In my time as service technician repairing DVD/CD players, 65% of the laser pick-up assembles I have tested were good and only needed a small adjustment. Today's technology makes it unfeasible for a shop to hook up a DVD/CD player, and even some recorders, to their equipment and make these adjustments because of the cost involved.

Hope this may help;

I was given a Memorex CD Micro System (21 Channel) as a present. They no longer have their receipt. I have the box that it was purchased in, but there was no remote control enclosed. Everything works...


In regards to your issue, you can actually increase ordecrease the volume with the volume +/- buttons located on top-right section ofthe unit. If you really want to get a remote you can contact Fox Internationalwhich is the company that handles parts and accessories for Memorex Electronic products. In case they do not have the remoteavailable, there is another company that sells remotes for different products;their web site is www.remotes.com. I hopethis information was helpful.

I have tried to record from Tape to CD with No result. I have followed the instructions for this task, to the letter and still nothing on CD.


Hi,
First make sure yoou are using correct cds. You need CDR Audio discs not blank pc media type (Yes they are different). Once you have the disc type right, make sure you are finalizing the disc as they will not play in other machines until u do this

No sound on Memorex DVD player


This could be caused by loose tape connector or faulty volume adjuster. First try playing a standard cd, then dvd, and finally a bootleg dvd because they create a lot problems for these smaller units. It would seem that you may need to open the unit inorder to find out what the problem is. If you do please becareful and take notes because you will have to put it back together.

Hi! My DXZ545MP CD Player had some buttons pushed by my dog in the car and now the volume no longer works. There is no sound at all regardless of the volume levels and it simply stopped playing music once...


first kelly... if you don't already have it .. here's the manual...

http://www.clarion.com/ca/en/MungoBlobs/754/615/DXZ545MP(Manual),1.pdf

you can reset that by unhooking the battery for about 10 minutes and hooking it back up... if that is an anti-theft type radio make sure you know the code and how to enter it. you'll have to set the pre-set stations again too.

Robert

Please take a moment to rate this solution thanks.

p.s. just noticed how long ago you posted this. you probably have it fixed by now... but the manual may come in handy to you

Bass sounds only


That is tricky one. Did you try adjusting the EQ on both the stereo and the amp? Is the Mute turned on because it will act like that? Is both rca jacks plugged in on stereo and amp?
