Mintek DVD Portable

I have the same issue with the VERY faint picture on the screen and I was wondering if the other guy ever found how to replace it or if he found a way to fix it? Laurel

Re: Mintek DVD Portable

I had this problem. You need to reset your dvd player. To do this: For the reset, the unit should be on Wall power only, with the battery removed. You set the LINE SELECt (on the side next to the VIDEO plug) device to IN, turn the unit on, after 20 seconds switch it back to OUT.

Portable dvd player dropped now has sound and faint picture

I usually prefer to fix things but here unless this is a very expensive unit let it go, it did enough damage to cause image issues and a screen hinge broken, if it can be repaired it will always be prone to some collateral issues that may show up later, like a small car in a accident, no matter how good the repair place is it will never be quite the same.

Seeing picture on monitor of dvd player

I have the 7 inch monitor but my manual says: "If you feel bright unsuitable during playback, press MONITOR button to select bright adjustment and press + or - buttons until moderate bright is available." If that doesn't work you may have stumbled on the reason the company is no longer in business. They sold crappy stuff.
