Question about Memorex MX4100 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

CD won't work, says "Test"

Daughter's C/D Player won't work and says "test" in the display for about 10 sec and shuts off main power automatically. If you put the disk in ten or twenty times, it might work once. Not the disk, they all do it...

Activation of Ice Maker Service Diagnostic Mode
automatically turns off all Ice Maker Control PCBA
outputs. The compressor runs at fixed speed of 4500
rpm and the condenser fan turns on until Service Mode
is deactivated. The damper is closed and the fresh food

previous ice maker sequential test, press fresh food (?)
or '-' on the LCD screen. The selected test number will
be displayed on the fresh food display.
After pushing 'power on-off' to start automatic test
or turn on the load, the ice maker control will display
the test result on the freezer two digit display. When
waiting for the test to be automatically performed and
the result displayed, the test number (test ID) will flash
on/off. After the automatic test is completed the test
result will be displayed as "P" - pass, or "F" - Fail.
For an interactive test, the technician manually activates
the load using 'power on-off' and physically verifies the
system response. Pressing 'power on-off' again turns
the load off. The freezer display shows the current or
expected state of the load. During the load transition
the fresh food display flashes the test ID. After the last
test step in the ice maker test sequence is completed,

Once you have the diagnostic codes, check this post for the meaning of the codes:

No display on screen.

Hold the power switch up . . it will eventually shut down. 10 secs. works for minor hiccups, but some problems take up to 30-40 secs. to clear.

Water is not pumped away, or stops in the middle of a cycle and displays one of a several error messages

Press and hold the button for 3 seconds>Release the button for 3 seconds>Press and hold the button for 3 seconds>Release the button for 3 seconds>Press and hold the button for 3 seconds

All of the indicators on the console will light up for 5 seconds while 88 is displayed on the Estimated Time Remaining display. If not, repeat the step. Let us know if it cannot be activated.

The program then checks for any saved error codes after 5 seconds. List down the codes and post it back here. The console indicators will turn off then on with the 88 displayed if no error codes are recalled. After 5 seconds, the automatic test begins. The program performs a four-minute automatic test to check major washer functions. Press the same selected button in activating the automatic test above to advance through the automatic test steps.

5 disc cd player does not work

Is the unit getting power? If not, remove cover and check to see if the glass bus fuse is still good. If it is good, check power from the power supply to where it connects at the main board. If no power, then the supply is bad, if there is a sufficient amount of power, then the main board or capacitor or chipset could be faulty. You can test these components with an ohmmeter
