Mintek MDP 1810 Portable DVD Player

One night I was playing the DVD player and decided that I wanted to move to another room to watch my movie. I unplugged the unit and then plugged the unit in, when I turned it on, I had sound but no picture. Upon a closer look, there was a picture, but it's very, very faint. the help section of the manual has not been helpful and I don't know what could cause this problem. any ideas or solutions? Thanks.

    I have the same issue with my dvd player having sound but no picture. However, my problem started while using my car adapter cord. Sometimes if I move the player while still pluged in, the picture goes blank (black) but the sound is still there. I thought the set was a total loss so I put it on the shelf. After several months,, I was going to purchas another dvd player but before I did, I tried this model. When I plugged it in, it worked. I've used it for 2 days and the problem came back. Is there anything outside of purchasing another dvd player that can be done?

I can't eject a dvd from a JVC player because movie I was watching kept freezing.

Unplug player from wall receptical, and detach any other leads that plugged into it, press and hold power for at least 2 minutes in an attempt to clear the microprocessor controller ic, if this fails! you may have to take the top off to manually eject the DVD.

I purchased a second Sony RDR-VX525 Video Cassette Recorder/DVD Recorder for our bedroom to replace a failing Zenith VCR recorder/player. I began using the Sony VHS/DVD recorder to transfer our movies...

This is a known issue that happens with these players

To fix the Sony remote dvd-1 dvd-2 dvd-3 issue, take the remote for that recorder into another room or unplug the dvd recorder a moment. Then hold down the enter key and the number of the mode its stuck in ie if its stuck in dvd-1 mode hold down the enter key and then the 1 key. hold both buttons together for 3 seconds. After this go back into the room and try it or if you unplugged the player, then replug it back in. The remote has to be away from the player to work. again

here is an example

<stuck in dvd-1mode> get away from player different room so it can not sence remote. Hold down enter and 1 button for 3 seconds and then try it
if its stuck in dvd-2 mode dold down enter and the number 2 button together for 3 secondsd and try it. The idea is you have to be far away from the recorder so it dosent recieve any inputs from the remote while doing this.

Let me know if you are still having problems with this and I would be glad to help you.

1. How do I watch the same movie on both screens on the Philips PET9422 37 9 in. Dual screen DVD players? 2. I bought a refurbished model but did not get a user's manual. How do I get one?

You can do the following to watch the same moving in both the screen.
1.Connect the AV out of both the unit together. with supplied av cord

2. If you want to watch the movie played on the first unit then put the DVD/AV IN switch of first monitor to DVD and the DVD/AV IN switch of second one to AV IN.Now you can watch the movie played on the first monitor on both monitors.

3. IF you want to watch movie played on the second unit then put DVD/AV IN switch of second monitor to DVD and the DVD/AV IN switch of the first monitor to AV IN. Now you can watch the movie played on the second monitor on both monitors.

I have the manual of the same . As it is large pdf file can't sent through fixya. If you can sent your email id through fixya will sent you the manual

NB500mg1f won't play DVD, watched a movie last night on it and today it won't play the same movie !! Help before it grows wings !!!

Buy a cd/dvd lens cleaner they run about $8-$10 at the store. If that doesn't work the laser is probably bad.

Connecting digital converter,Emerson VCR/DVD Combo,Sony SDTV

I think you may need an RF Modulator. This device will have connections for the DVD and TV and will have a channel 3/4 switch. Good luck to you.

Try to play a disc and the player says ''bad disc''

Have you tried unplugging the DVD player and letting it sit for a couple of minutes? If that doesn't work try holding the power button as you unplug/plug the machine.
