Question about Mintek DTV-263 26 in. TV/DVD Combo

Remote doesn't work

The remote only functions for the on/off mode. Cannot access menu, change channels, adjust volume, etc. Cannot manually utilize these features either on the TV itself. It is "stuck" on one channel and at one volume level.

    We bought one of these tv's last year for the holidays for the in-laws and a few months after they had it a DVD got stuck and won't come out of the dvd part. Now, last week my father-in law called to tell us the tv is stuck on channel three and the remote doesn't do anything. I cannot believe this company when out of business. We bought this tv for Christmas last year as is, since it was not for us personally we did no buy a extended warranty or do the paper work for the warranty. Nnow what should we do. I feel just terrible.

    remote control only works "on/off" - unit stays on one channel. Control buttons on TV unit side do not function, only on/off button on set functions.

    My TV/DVD combo is stuck in the DVD mode. I can not get any of the buttons on the TV to work or to switch over to watch the TV. I was able to get the DVD out off the drive and it will go to the screen saver. I have unppluged the DVD IDE cable and also tried reseating/ unpluged the IDE cable from the DVD player and its still stuck in the DVD mode. Form what I have rescreached so far it looks like the TV powers on and the looks at the DVD player to (boot) load from and then looks for the next input signal. The DVD play must respond in order for it to look at the other imput ports thus causeing the issue.

According to Mintek support you should unplug your set for 30 minutes which is a reset/rebooting process. Then plug it in and hold the DVD eject button for 5 seconds [at least]. The DVD should eject unless there is another problem. If it doesn't eject then call Mintek support at 877-646-8358 for help. They told me you have to send the TV to them and they'll send a new one. If you have to do that then make sure you tell them you want your DVD returned when they get it out. Good luck.

Panasonic CT 27 SL - 13 GL how to connect external speakers


This TV is set up to connect to an external amplifier which that controls the speakers. It has an analog audio output which means you need an RCA audio cable (2 RCA plugs (red and white) on each end. You can't directly connect a set of speakers. The audio output jacks at between the antenna in and the video inputs. Then you need to enter the menu and enter the Audio submenu. Go to the Speakers item. Turn the TV speakers to off and fixed audio out.(The amplifier will adjust the volume.) Use the Up/Down arrows to navigate through the menu options, press enter to enter a sub-menu and the volume up button to change a setting.

There is also a headphone jack which may be compatible with computer speakers. That has a 3.5 mm jack. To use headphones, set the Speakers Audio item to TV speakers Off and variable audio out. (The TV controls will adjust the volume.)


To use a Universal remote to set the audio or modify the channel list, you need one that matches the Menu function of the original remote. You may need to try multiple codes for Panasonic TVs to get the button to work. Some low-end universal remotes may not have the menu button; get a different remote or use the menu button on the front panel of the TV.

To set the channel list, press Menu and select Setup. Go to the Prog Chan option. Then set your Mode in the first option (Cable or Air). Then choose Auto Program to scan all channels or Manual Program to edit the channel list.

The manual for the TV is available at retrevo: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Panasonic-CT-27SL13-TVs-manual/id/275ag210/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to access the manual. See page 5 of the manual for the input connections (page 7 of the PDF).

We purchased a tv from a school channels only goes up to 02-13 cannot go any farther. We are using a universal remote that when we go to menu to channels it doesn't allow you to either enter or delete...


U can't do much on a universal tv remote.Only the basic mostly,like power on/off,channels up/down and volume up/down that about it.If u wanted more functions and controls and adjustments inside of the tv Menu for options like changing and adding functions.U must have the tv original remote to be able to do it.Try website like Remotes.com to buy the tv orignal remote.

I bought a Toshiba TV with remote CT90326 from a friend who had a different service (satellite) and I have cable and the remote works to turn on the TV , punch in specific channels, and to change volume,...


Any television remote will give full access to the television functions. The remote must be specific to that television. Google
make model replacement remote
There are original ones on ebay, plus companies that sell remotes that are an exact copy. The CT90326 may be for another Toshiba model, or of course it may be faulty.

Then we have the remote on the cable or satellite unit. That gives full command of the unit functions, but BASIC control of the television, normally On, Off, Channel Up and down to allow access to DVD or similar and Volume Up and Down. Everything else is done from the TV Remote.

To get the cable remote to make that happen, you Google
Toshiba Remote Codes
and run through them all until a selected code allows you to switch the television on and off.

Cannot access channel 73 on TV2


If you are unable to access the TV menu using the buttons on the TV itself it is possible you can with the TV2 remote if it still controls the volume etc. for this TV. If it doe not you will need to find a code for your set in the manual for the receiver or you can go to the following link to find that info as well.http://tech.dishnetwork.com/departmental_content/TechPortal/content/tech/receiver/625.shtml
Assuming you have control of the volume still press the small TV button on the top left of the remote. Now press the menu button and you may be able to access the TV's menu. If so you need to run a channel scan/auto program the TV. You may need to use the buttons on the TV still to maneuver through the menu.
If you are still unable to access the menu you may need to purchase a universal to access the menu.

You need the original remote controller to be able to switch input modes.Universal ones usually don't work. If you don't have the original remote and can't find it ever or if it is too expensive you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your dvd player, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me. It placed the connection to channel 4 and other cable channels are still working,

You can buy the RF Modulator from: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180299245670

FPA lock settings, No remote, can not power on TV


If you forget your password you can reset it. Make sure the TV is off. Simultaneously press and hold VOL< on the TV?s front panel and CLEAR on the remote for approximately 5 seconds. Enter a new password next time you access the PARENTAL CONTROL menu. Front Panel Lock 1. From the PARENTAL CONTROL menu, press the up or down arrow to highlight Lock Fr. Panel. 2. Press the right or left arrow to turn on (box has check mark) or off (box doesn?t have check mark) front panel lock. Of course if you don't have a remote that can bring up the menu I don't know how this can be done.
