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.

With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

I had the same issue with my MDP-1810 and it turned out to be a defective cord. Call mintek and they should offer a replacement for the price of shipping the cord, $5.00 is what I think it came to. Best of luck!
