Re: My Memorex DVD player will not open or come on

I just fixed a Memorex 2042 DVD player. Before the fix, the standby light was lit, nothing else works (with remote or buttons on the player panel). Opened up the machine, saw a capacitor bulged (1000uf/10v). Did some soldering work and replaced it. All is fine now.

Remote control codes

Harmony remotes do not use codes. You need to log into the software, click 'Add Device' and add your DVD player with the correct make and model number, then it will work.

If you do not have the Harmony software, you can get it at

Memorex mvd2040 showing wrong region

Try this hack - it may work for you.
Turn on the Player.
Press the Open/Close button.
Press the Clear button.
Press 1 3 6 9.
Press the Region you want or 0 for Region free.
Turn your player off then on again.

I understand if it is a model "B", it might not.

Put lens cleaner in my memorex mvd2016 and it still says "wrong disk"

Had the same thing. Tried opening and closing a number of times- powered on and off a few times- used a lens cleaner- nothing.

Unplugged the power cord from the wall, plugged it back in- BINGO- it works. For now.
