I have a Memorex MVD4540. There is a small plastic wheel inside that has a broken tooth that prevents proper operation of DVD player. All I am trying to do is find out where I can order or pick up this part. I'm in Ontario Canada near Michigan border. I'm not sure where the manual is so don't know where to phone. Web search is producing all kinds of sites except what I'm looking for.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I tried to get one for my machine but to no avail. So I fixed my gear myself. Go to your local hardware and buy a "Devcon" plastic welder. Not inexpensive.
You have a broken tooth on the plastic gear. Use a very small
drill bit the size of a big paper clip. drill three holes where the tooth broke off ( if part of the gear tooth is still there, file it down smooth.) Cut three pieces off a paper clip and insert them into the holes. Make them extend to below the gear and not to extend above the original tooth. Now you will make a tooth with the plastic
weld. Fill where the broken tooth was and let it set. Also fill where the paper clip extends below the tooth. This will give it more strength. Let it dry and harden. Now with a small file, file it to make it fit to the next tooth so it doesn't make a bump. " if you can before the mix dries, replace the gear and turn by hand the steel gears to make a smooth fit. Wipe any excess mix away. Good luck....
PS. mine is still working after three years....Hint do not try to shred
to many papers at one time. And once in a while put some 3 in one oil on a piece of paper in a sig sag motion and run it thru the machine. This will help to quiet the noise and oil the cutting blade.
I just had this problem too. What has probably happened is that the belt/wheel assembly within the upper lid has broken loose from its plastic housing. It is normally retained in place by two weak plastic posts, each having a plastic extrusion that holds the metal housing for the wheel in place. Just minor stress can apparently snap off the plastic extrusions. (Nice quality workmanship, Epson.)
Unplug the upper lid and remove it. Unscrew the 5 retaining screws and then use a small flathead screwdriver to carefully pry the bottom of the unit away from the rest of the housing. Stabilize the wheel mechanism so that you can rotate the whole unit around in order to grab the broken plastic pieces and small spring without allowing the wheel mechanism to crash into things. Superglue the two broken plastic pieces to their proper mated location on the lid, and wait about half a day for a solid bond. Then fit the wheel housing over the two plastic pieces so that the thin silver bar is pointed toward the back of the lid. (Do NOT place the spring over the thin silver bar yet.) Fit the orange belt properly around the wheel. NOW, push the wheel housing carefully toward the front of the lid until there is slight tension in the belt. Squeeze one end of the spring over the thin silver bar and push the spring completely into its recessed plastic trough while compressing it. Reassemble, and you're done.
FOr the MVDP1102 Memorex 10.2 portable DVD Player:
I had the same problem. If you open the disc door there is suppose to be a plastic arm underneath the right side of the lid which when you close the lid, with the movie disc in, this arm will press through to a switch inside the machine and that will set the player in load/play mode. Memorex did not have parts for this player, so I unscrewed the bottom and one black screw inside where the lazer light is. This will allow you to handle the bottom back side and see underneath where the screen is you will find the switch. I rigged up a pin wire and did some small drilling. I was successful, but it wasn't easy. Most times I just fail and toss. I thing my son just open the disc door too much and that's how the piece was broken.
