Try this: Hold in the StandBy/Power button do not un-press it this entire time. While pressing in StandBy/Power button then unplug the unit/DVD CD player from outlet and CONTINUE to press in StandBy/Power button. Holding StandBy/Power button for a full minute to minute and a half while unit is unplugged. After the full minute to minute and a half then let go of StandBy/Power button. After you have let the StandBy/Power button go (unpress) then plug the unit back into the outlet. It should now come out of the Stand By frozen mode and the drawer for DVD/CD should open when you press eject and the unit should work again. Worth a try.

I work for Memorex tech support. Our phone number is 800-919-3647.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your DVD player needs to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. The problem is Memorex doesn't repair their DVD players, they simply replace them when a customer has a warranty claim. If your player is no longer in warranty (the warranty is 90 days from the date of purchase) please call the above number to see if your model qualifies for any out of warranty options. Getting the player repaired locally would cost far more than what you paid for it, and that's if someone could repair it without any replacement parts from Memorex.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

SOURCE: No sound on Memorex DVD player

This could be caused by loose tape connector or faulty volume adjuster. First try playing a standard cd, then dvd, and finally a bootleg dvd because they create a lot problems for these smaller units. It would seem that you may need to open the unit inorder to find out what the problem is. If you do please becareful and take notes because you will have to put it back together.

SOURCE: memorex dvd player randomly turns off

power supply may be faulty do to bad capacitor. It may be best off getting another one, because it costs $60 minim to repair at shop. It is slightly possible it may be a firmware problem that would have to be sent in to the manufacture to have repaired which will not be cheap. You can purchase a capacitor tester to determine where the fault is.

SOURCE: memorex mvd2047 dvd player - no audio when playing dvd

Regarding the problem with the sound on your DVD player, I would suggest you to make sure the audio cables (red and white) are connected properly to the TV and player.

Also, try using a different set of cables since those ones might not be working and this is why you are not getting audio. On the Memorex remote you will find a mute button, make sure it is not activated.

My memorex DVD player's drawer won't open. It is plugged in properly and it can turn on. The only problem is that is just won't open.

Unplug it for a week or so. then plug it back in and it will reset. It must take awhile to discharge the capacitors in the machine to reboot the thing if you get a voltage spike or anything. Ours did that too once when the electricity went out suddenly. Then it wouldn't turn on.

I took it over to my house and left it set for a week and tried it again and it worked fine. So I took it back to my mothers house and used it. It's still working three years later.

My expensive JVC did the same thing to me.

Memorex dvd player randomly turns off

There is a progressive scan switch on the back of your player. Flip the switch to the opposite position you find it in. If the unit still turns itself off, or won't play a DVD, the unit needs to be replaced. Memorex doesn't repair their players under warranty anymore. They simply replace them. If you're outside of the 90 day warranty, please call 800-919-3647 to speak with Memorex customer service for other options.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

DVD player turns on; but apperently will NOT play the movie after we put it in... HELP!!!

I had the same issue and could have kicked myself in the ***! Make sure the AV slide switch is in the out position or it will not play at all. As soon as you switch from IN to OUT it will work properly.
