I have a Memorex also. Try the VCR button, and enter 709 as the code. It worked for my DVD player, model MVD205. Hope it works for your.

I have a Memorex MVD 2023 DVD player. I misplaced the remote, bought a new one, and there is no code for memorex dvd players in the instruction manual. Does anybody have the remote code for this? Does it matter what type of remote control I have? My internet searches have gotten me nowhere.

I suggest getting a upgradeable remote like the One-For-All (OFA) urc8910, then call the phone # in the manual have them load the proper code into the remote over the phone. It might be DVD 0695, 0831, or 1270. Let them tell you, before asking for the above codes, which aren't preset into the urc8910 out of the box.

The 4 digit codes do not work with the Memorex 2042. I have the Comcast DVR 3 remote and a Memorex 2042 DVD player. Try this 5 digit code: 20831

thanks higgs so much! This worked for me. the code 20831 did it for me. I had lost my remote for my up converting memorex DVD player and this worked flawlessly. I registered here just to say thank you.

I have a URC-4041. and a URC-3021, from OneForAll.
I found code 0784. But the keys are all screwed up.

It's a start. Any clues on unscrambling the keys?

No guarentee, but here are the EFCs for a 8042. I'll assume that your OFAs can do keymoves.
Tap the device button that setup code 0784 is assigned to.  Then, repeatedly:
1) Press Setup until 2 blinks
2) Enter 994
3) Tap Setup
4) Enter an EFC from the below list (if the remote needs 5 digit EFCs, prepend 2 zeros)
5) Tap the button to assign the function to.
The remote should blink twice.

Ok I have tried using button mover.
The the DVD player does not respond to a 'moved' key. A 'scrambled' key, no matter what it is programmed to will now not function after a new EFC is assigned to it.

My remote Seems to use 3 digit EFC's for Assigning buttons. However, this specific code will allow a single EFC.
ie
FUNCTION ..... (tap) setup ..... EFC = A response from DVD player.
So DVD button .. Setup ... 0007 or 007 or 107 will power toggle the DVD player.
However. it seems to only have 10 EFC. they repeat after 0010. or 0020.

Quite Odd.
SO I tried using a 3 digit EFC with button mover using newly discovered workable EFC.s They too don't work when assigned to a button.

From this thread and another one , we know that the URC-4041 accepts 3 digit EFCs and it is programmable.  So it should work.

Read the second link.  It contains practical advice on how to clear out undesired EFCs, and also illustrates how one person struggled to make the keymoves work.

ok progress. I tried jumping around and I found that the EFC test of a code and button move of the same 3 digits yields unexpected results.

Yes this does accept EFCs for this Device code 0784
Using this page i found there are more common EFCs than others. This allowed an EFC to work. [Link: web.archive.org]

So This remote like others has a 256 turn around. where an EFC for Stop, would be EFC 297, but also 041 & 553. They are duplicates.

Starting with the chart of common EFCs I found a few .

The are only 256 unique EFCs, which are UEI's attempt to encode and obscure the actual function numbers. So it really only makes sense to search on the range 0-255. You can do the entire set in less than an hour.

I hoped that the digits you have found would lead us to the others, but the function numbers don't follow much of a trend.
1 ---7
2----3
3----15
6----77
7----6
8----2
9----14
It's tempting to think that 4 and 5 would be 65 and 69. If so, the EFCs would be 168 and 169.

I am thinking that since this is my first time finding EFCs that I could have been doing it wrong.
I did use a "hammer" technique, of using random codes till I found one that worked. Then I got clued into the "U-OFA-URC: Making Your Own Extended Function Code Tables" page.

I am finding A LOT of "Device Setup Menu" codes. they pepper the landscape. In fact most of the buttons launched DVD SETUP after programming DVD/VCR for 0784. I am finding and Blocks of non functioning codes. I have performed a few EFC +256 tests to prove to my self that they are the same. I must have been doing something wrong when tested the lower numbers,.
But I was doing Increments of ten and they were performing the same function.

I made a spreadsheet to sort out my work. Can we upload attachments?

All done! DVD code 0784- Memorex DVD Player (From target)
URC-4041-B01 For test. Fully 'button moved'.

Functions seem to work on URC-3021-B00. 9-9-4 Does not work on this remote.

I have formated this in excel I would like to upload for others to check before committing to "FILES" area. Lots of codes for SETUP. There is an 'odd' program function not on OEM remote, i called it 'other progm'

On my remote. I could not 'button move' the FAV button. Not sure why when other buttons could easily be overwritten.Only one button could not be identified. the player places a hand with a red X when the function is called.
It may be ANGLE.

Is this the MVD2016BLK model? I'd like to post these results at hifi-remote.com, but Memorex from target is not enough description to make it useful.

Fav buttons date from when people wanted to store a few channel numbers in the remote, and cycle through them. Too many channels are available now to make that a popular approach.
Anyway, the Fav button on older remotes is frequently a kind of multi-macro key. Each push or repeat of the button sends upto 5 IR signals to the component (usually a TV). So UEI set it up so that key can't be assigned an EFC.
