Question about Memorex MVD2042 DVD Player
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.

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.

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.
