Question about Memorex AM/FM Clock Radio with CD Player

Memorex CD Clock Radio # 2863. Broken latch .. will not hold down top cover

The latch that holds down the top cover (CD access area) will not engage when the top is pushed down (top stays open all the time). The part is a small black latch and fits in a cut out in the housing of the unit. It is a stand alone piece and it appears to be easy to replace. Can yout tell me how to obtain the part?

Please email me at

Thanks in advance for your help.

    I have the same exact problem and found on the Memorex website that they use Fox Electronics for their parts (1-800-321-6993). They have the part for $8 plus $12 in shipping. A new cd clock radio will cost more so I will probably drop the $20 on that little part. I have not been able to find anyone else that supplies the same part.

    I have the same proplem Memorex should look at this as Difict in there product.

    WE own two of these CD clock radios and both, within a few months, had the same issue whereby the female end of the latch to close the lid to active the CD player broke at the main stress point, causing non-functionality of the CD player and remains open, collecting dust and other airborne debris.

    I contacted Memorex's Customer service and was highly disappointed to learn about the Fox International cost/solution. I have come to two conclusions....

    It is NOT worth the cost and Memorex is NOT worth my business in the future. The issue is clearly a product defect as they selected a polymer blend that cannot endure the less-than regular usage over the anticipated lifetime of the product. Vote with your wallet! Memorex is out; too cheap for me.

    I have the same problem. Black latch will not keep cover shut, but does not appear broken. There was no predictive indication of this failure, it just happened. I removed the lid spring, but this did not completely solve the problem - lid stays shut, but not enough for the CD player to work without manual intervention.

    The lid stays open. It seems that the part of the latch on the unit was not strong enough to hold the latch on the lid and split.
    I tried using super glue to glue the split sides back - without any success. I tried to use small rubber band - it keeps that lid closed for a while, but the rubber band is not strong enough.
    This was a gift to my 6yo son. I'm VERY disappointed.

Also have the same problem, clock sat on the night stand for a couple of years. Wife took into work to play CD's at the Christmas Party and the latch failed.

Think we may have used it once or twice as a CD player.

The black latch was easy to remove, justed open up the radio and pushed in the ears on the latch and it slipped back up into the CD compartment.

Will see if I can find something to repair it. Looked like the side cracked and a housing lost some of its side.

How do I set the time

To set the time on a Memorex Mi4604PBLK Clock Radio, hold down the 'set time' button first and then the 'source' button, at the same time. But you must push the buttons in that order, 'set time' and then 'source'. The time display on the front will flash between dim and bright. Use the volume dial to change the time. Time is set, and the flashing display will stop after a few seconds.

MC7101 wont turn off no matter how much I hit the off button

Even though the button moves, it may not be making contact internally. It may be necessary to disassemble the radio sufficiently to gain access to the button area for repair.

Leave the slider in the"OFF" position. Press and HOLD the "Clock Adjust" button.

The light on the front of the radio should be blinking while you hold the button down.

While holding the button down......
To adjust hours: Press the ">>" button on the front of the radio
To adjust the minutes: Press the "<<" button on the front of the radio.

That is all there is too it.

Top popped off.

I just removed the cover from my wave radio. There are 3 screws that hold the top cover on. Two are exposed and in the rear of the unit and the other is under the CD player lid.

To replace the cover find the two tabs in the front on the bottom cover. Slide the top on and using a screwdriver carefully pry back the front of the top cover so that the two tabs slip by and move into place. Then open up the CD player cover and make sure the spindle fits through the hole in the top cover. Push down and replace the screws.

I didnt remove the ribbon cable so you will have to check on how to refit the connector.
