Durabrand CD Home Music System - Volume default

The volume on a new Durabrand CD Home Music System (HM3817DT) defaults to a really loud volume every time the stereo is turned on. The volume is too loud for me as it is, but the stereo was purchased for my newborn's room for lullabye's and it is totally unacceptable. Is there any way to override or change the default volume level so we don't get blasted by very loud music every time the stereo is turned on? Thanks for any help you can provide!

    Same thing... Volume jumps to 17 when the player is turned on. Totally unacceptable.

    The default volume setting is much too high. Why doesn't it remain at the setting last used before the unit is turned off?

HM3817DTBLK:Default volume

I sent a note to the manufacturer. Communication attached below.

Dear Customer,
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.
Best Regards,

The default volume is set way too high on this radio. It is at 17 and we would like to reset it to a much lower level. How do I do this?

Volume is too loud

change the function to cd or aux before you turn it off and then change the volume before going to your preferred function. It is the only way around it.

Default volume for durabrand hm3817dt

It appears there is no "good solution."

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).

Try a laser eye cleaner. It possibly may need to be dusted on the inside. Overheating can cause strange things to happen to electronics.

Turn off alarm

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
