    same here-- don't have any idea what's wrong-- The sound is great, when I turn it on there is a very quick flash of the blue Mintek screen but then it goes completely blank. The last time I used it was through and LCD- I have tried to change the "source" but that doesnt work either.

    I have the exact same problem. I hope there is an easy fis, because it appears that the screen is not completly out because the screen flashes MINTEK when you first turn it on perfectly.

    The DVD plays and the sound is good. The screen is black unless I push and release the little peg that pauses the play when the lid is closed. If I continue to bob it up and down the screen flicks on and off instantaneously. Do you think it is something with the closure switch and can it be replaced and where can I get the part?

    my player keeps turning off suddenly, like the power will be on, but no audio or sound is happening. I thought it might be overheating, but it keeps doing it.

I think it's because the screen on/off switch is broken. I took it apart, and think that I need to buy a new switch.

DVD will not play just get a blue plus sign coming down the display after th DVD sign graphic. TV screen shows digital and no disc. Any ideas lease?


is it a burned disk? if so your dvd player might not be able to play that type of dvd... i know sometimes also scratched ones won't play at all as well... of course also make sure everything is plugged in correctly and if it does this with more different dvds then there's something wrong with the player itself... which i hope is not the case as those are very difficult to fix yourself

On the front of your unit you have a small pin hole (front right hand side) you will need something small to push this in & it will reset the unit . Once the unit is reset you will need to get into your audio settings and set them back up so that everything sounds correctly.

Prima HDTV has a black screen on TV, but works fine while Playing DVD


try turning the channel up or down with the tv remote to input 1 or 2 depending on which one is being used for the dvd player. tv should use input 1. dvd should be on input 2.
when turning the channel set it to show the dvd screen, then go up 1. if it doesn't show, return and go down 1.

DVD plays only in black and white


Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and white. The connections go as follows:

HDTV:
Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one, then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding cords go to the correct component slots.

DVD:
Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots. The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr. Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.

DVD movies do not play


A blue screen means the TV is not receiving a video signal. Check all connections, then try another player, cable, etc. Also, check DVD and TV AV settings.
