Re: Magnavox CD Player Clock Radio not working

This Clock/Radio/CD player has had component failure problems. The unit is probably not worth repairing. The reason is the parts and repair information is probably very limited. The cost of the repair with parts and labor will be expensive. This repair would probably cost you more than just buying a new Clock/Radio/CD player. I hope this information helps you with your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day!

How do you put a cd in

Kylie, if there is a CD tray press the eject button and put CD in tray, push tray in easy to load. If no CD tray insert CD into CD slot and push gently to load. Some have a lid on top that you simply open with your finger then load CD. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

CD player doesn't work on Timex Indiglo Radio Sounds CD player. No manual available. Can't use.

I never have seen this model but guess it's similar to any other CD-Radio model. You can download a manual from here

It should have a switch to select CD player.
Once you select CD player, open CD lid, insert a CD and play
If won't play, CD player is defective and if you don't know how to repair it you should take it to a repair service and evaluate if it's worth to reapir.

How do I set the alarm on my magnavox CD player clock radio model:mcr230sl/17?

There's a little switch on the either side of the top. Next to the repeat alarm button. Of you slide the switch to the middle for alarm one, it will be on set. Then using the forward or backwards button on the front you can set your alarm!

I need the owners manual for magnavox com dic & clock radio

I recently got the same cd/clock radio at an auction and needed a manual. I found I can read one at From their home page, search under Electronics for Magnavox CD Clock Radio MCR23017. It's the same one that you and I have. Scroll down to the Product Details and click on Product Manual. It didn't solve my problem with mine (low volume with the volume all the way up) but it told me how to work the buttons,etc. Good luck! Roberta

No sound

other than just double checking your switches settings there really isn't much you can do ,as there really isn't any easy to replace parts inside and that would be cost prohibitive anyhow , but do remember it is a clock radio , if its set t o use the alarm the radio will not work and not the cd either , ck all your switches for proper setting , one may have got bumped by you or cleaning staff
this is the reason I use a sound bar/phone dock as I use it to charge my phone and play music all day at my desk , they only cost about fifteen bucks to buy , and best thing is there's nothing for anyone to mess with when im not there as it wont work without my phone docked in it !!
