Sir,

the player could be defective.

Before you take it back for a replacement, however, let me just go through the connections.

ONE: The outputs on the back of the player you are using are the composite video (yellow) and stereo audio (white and red for left and right audio).

TWO: These cables should be connected to the INPUTS on the tv that have corresponding connecctions; yellow to the video input (either 1, 2, or 3) and the audio to the same set of inputs. If you used the #3 input for video, then you must use the #3 input for the audio connections: Red to the right channel and white to the left channel inputs.

THREE: Then, the tv must be selected to the correct video input. If you used input #3, then you must tune the tv to video #3 input.

So, if you are sure you have the connections proper, still not worked, then the set is probably defective.


thanks
good luck

    your fix for the Mintek LCD's which are frozen in the DVD mode. follow the procedure of attaching the
    component wires directly to the component input terminal on the
    motherboard. Problem is, on this model, there are only 2 non-flat
    strands and 3 flat strands coming off the component input. Your
    instructions said that there should be 3 of each and that the input
    wires are to be connected to the non-flat strands and the grounds to
    the flat strands. Each of the flat strands on the right & left are
    long while the flat strand in the center is short. One of the non-flat
    strands in directly between the left and middle flat strand. From this
    arrangement it would seem logical that the three input wires should be
    attached to the the corresponding flat strands and the 2 ground wires
    from these input wires should both be attached the non-flat strand the
    is between them while the 3rd input wire and ground wire should be
    attached to the remaining flat strand and non-flat strand. Are you sure
    that the input wires must be attached the the non-flat strands? If so
    how should this be done given the set-up I described.

    The following are the steps I did to fix the stuck DVD problem:



    I. Requirements



    a. Tools:

    Phillips Screwdriver (magnetic head will be the best)

    Tweezers - Only if you don't have a magnetic Phillips screwdriver

    Flashlight



    b. Surface:

    Large flat padded table because you will need it to lay the TV - flat.



    c. People:

    I did it by myself but having an extra hands is a plus.



    II. Instructions



    1. Disconnect power cord, power switch button "off" position, unplug cables and video cables from the unit.



    2. Place the TV unit flat on the surface - screen on the bottom - Back cover side facing up



    3. Back Stand: Remove the TV bracket stand in the back by unscrewing the 8 screws.



    4. Back Cover: Unsecured the back cover panel side of the unit - 9
    screws (After unscrewing the screws you might need to use the tweezers
    to lift and remove the screws.)



    5. Back Cover: Carefully lift (unlock) the back cover panel slightly
    away from the screen unit slowly because it is wired to the circuit
    board. In other words, you can't remove it completely which it is OK
    and it is not necessary. This back cover panel removal sounds easy but
    the cable coaxial connector blocks it and making it difficulty.
    Therefore, you will have to wiggle the cover until it is free and away
    from the coaxial connector

    because you will need some clearance space to access the DVD unit.



    6. DVD Unit: Unlock the DVD unit by unscrewing 4 (silver) screws.



    7. Now you are set and ready to release your stuck DVD.

    An extra hands will be nice to have but two hands is a requirements to do the next couple of steps.



    8. DVD Unit:

    On the front side, locate the two (black triangle-shape or arrow shape) slot holders.

    They are in a locked position.

    Using your fingers lift and hold both sloth holders in the up position.

    (You might have to raise these holders (up and down) several times.)

    As you are holding up these slot holders please perform the next step (#9).



    9. Power:

    Push power button on the unit switch "on"

    Plug back the power cord into the unit AC inlet

    Unit Ready Light: "red" standby light is on

    Remote Control: Press the power/DVD button - st the remote to DVD

    Unit Ready Light: "Green"

Tv is stuck in dvd mode


The on l y way I've fixed this problem is by using a universal remote control. Using the input button, you should be able to switch it back to whatever mode you need. Hopefully your television is a major manufacturer.

Mintek DTV-373-D Remote code


As far as I know, no regular universal remote will work with the mintek TV/DVD's.
I have heard that the "Kameleon" remote, from radioshack works with them.
I had the same problem, so I ordered a replacement original remote from ebay for $20. It was the RC-600 for mine (DTV-265 26" LCD/DVD)
