Question about Memorex Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

The used two year old travel trailer I recently purchased is equipped with a Memorex Model 4701 Under Cabinet CD Clock Radio With Remote. Unfortunately the trailer manufacturer is out of business and I have been unable to locate a local or out-of-town repair source for the radio. In an attempt to repair the unit myself, I have discovered that the antenna receptacle was cannabalized, which explains the poor reception I am experiencing, and that the red (red orange?) wire connected to the center of the 12V undercabinet light socket is broken off, which explains the inoperative light). My needs are fourfold: 1. I need an antenna receptacle that fits the chassis, 2. I need a wiring diagram to allow the proper reconnection of the light fixture wiring, 3. I need a source for the units remote, which is missing, and 4. I need an owners or operating manual. Alternatives would include a reputable repair source or a vendor who could provide a new replacement Model 4701 that is equipped with mating connections for the 12V power supply and external speakers. I'm sure I can rig some kind of an antenna connection, but cannot determine where the red light fixture wire is to be attached.

    I have the same clock radio which works but just. Mine also does not work worth a dam. the receiver in it is pure junk and never will get any stations you cannot see on the horizon worst piece of junk I have ever encountered. Another tech friend of mine and I tested the circuits and the were no better than a child's throw away toy You can partially tune the circuit but strong stations will blank out nearby ones and you can listen to a strong station almost the full Digital dial.
    solution I have bought a nice inexpensive car radio with CD Player and ports for other media and a small set of speakers to mount on the blank wall front of the cabinet where the stereo mounted before. good luck trying to fix it the light is easy but it is a inefficient appliance any hot 12 volt off the board will repair it

Without the wire diagram for the trailer and the radio you have few choices. Take it to a RV repair center and pay many dollars. Or you could spend $5-$10 on a tester and trace out the wires to figure it out yourself. There should be a wire designation on the back of the radio. If the manufacturer was consistent the orange/red wire should be the positive 12 volt wire(check to be sure) If there is a customer service number on the radio you may get some help but 2 years is out of warranty and likely obsolete. I've been in your shoes and it is not fun.

I was given a Memorex CD Micro System (21 Channel) as a present. They no longer have their receipt. I have the box that it was purchased in, but there was no remote control enclosed. Everything works...

In regards to your issue, you can actually increase ordecrease the volume with the volume +/- buttons located on top-right section ofthe unit. If you really want to get a remote you can contact Fox Internationalwhich is the company that handles parts and accessories for Memorex Electronic products. In case they do not have the remoteavailable, there is another company that sells remotes for different products;their web site is I hopethis information was helpful.

Sony radio/cd/clock under the cabinet. Lost

On the right side there is a push button switch labeled "Clock". It is springloaded so you have to push it in and hold it for a couple of seconds until the unit beeps and the hour position starts to blink. The volumn up and down buttons will control the changing of the numbers up and down and PM/AM. Pushing the clock button again will change the clock to the minutes position and you cann adjust the numbers up or down just like the hours. Push it one more time will lock-in the new time. Your done.
