Question about Mintek Portable DVD/CD Player w

3 Answers

Minrek, Portable DVD Player, Model: MDP1825

Problem: Stopped Playing DVD's, but- music CD's play fine. Message: "NO DISC". I feel that all is needed is to align the DVD reader, since CD's play just fine! Observations: 1). DVD disk does spin. Says "loading" makes noise. 2). Comes back after about 2 min. with "NO DISC". 3). Tried other DVD disks, same problem. Things tried. 1). Cleaned the "Eye" with a q-tip with Isopropyl Alchol (DVD's still didn't play, but- music CD's do play). 2). Cleaned the "Eye" with a q-tip with Acetone (DVD's still didn't play, but- music CD's do play). Cause: Not sure. The 13 year old girl is very careful with this item because it was a special gift. It cost over $200 USD at the time! Everyone wants to charge $100 min. for parts, to look at it is free, but- won't say how much to fix it. Notes: You can buy lots of broken MDP1825 DVD Players on e-Bay for $0.99 so I just hope it's not junk! I want to fix it for her but the cost to have someone repair it is to much based on todays prices for players. I have looked for a sevice guide for the MDP1825 to see how to align / adjust the DVD side of the player. (No Luck finding one). I'm not bad with tools since I work on PC's all the time, but fixing a DVD player is something I have not done! Can you offer me a solution to this problem. Thx

    We'll since everyone said it needs more power I did try plugging it directly into the wall, note: did nothing more!~

    So, I'm giving up on the repair and just getting a new one for my son's friend. It's the best thing I can do.

    Thanks for all your help.

Okay, i tried this, and it didn't work. I had to find some isopropyl, which took me a while, and i have a feeling that this thing is unreparable. Anyway, i don't know how to adjust the laser, so juan's idea is probably out. Anyway, these things are always cheap on ebay, and even one that isn't 99 cents will work. I have no idea how much this thing cost, so i can't set a goal. Thanks anyway for the ides, and keep trying.

Have to agree with juan,more than likely optic faulty.will play cds as less power needed from optic to focus on tracks laid down on cd.more power needed on dvd as tracks are laid closer together and optic has to work harder to read information.

Qtip , alcohol and acetone ? I am almost sure that you have already ruined the lens. In many of the CD or DVD players that I have repaired, the problem is the degradation of the power of thelaser. Im computer drives there are cases that I was able to fix the porblem by adjusting the power of the laser. this is quite dificult as the trimmer potentionmeter is very small and most often very hard to access. Usually this trimmer is located in the laser assembly.. Another dificulty is that the adhustment should be procise, too much power will also not work. My success rate of this procedure is only about 50-70 % But because you already cleaned it with Qtip, maybe the lens are no longer aligned and because of the alcohol and acetone, the lens may not be clear anymore.

Wont play a disc. It will stay in Loading mode for minutes and then read "No Disc"


Try to play a music on cd instead of playing dvd. It it plays keep playing until playey got hot and drive off moisture on circuit. Let it cool down then try play dvd. If it can play severy dvd in sequence, then your unit is repaired. Keep using it to avoid condensation inside the dvd player.

WILL NOT PLAY A DISC


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.

Disney Princess CD Player will not play music


try cleaning the laser with a q-tip if the laser is dirty from finger prints or dust it won't be able to read the disc therefore won't play. Clean laser and if that doesn't work then the child may have damaged the player in a fashion that would be better to get him/her a new one.

I have a portable dvd player model number mdp1030 the unit keeps saying no disk I have tried numerous disks same results.


then i think the lens is not able to read the disk.

and so i would suggest you to buy a disk cleaner CD and run it in your DVD player and then use your regular disks.

if this is not working then it is some internal fault in your DVD players lens.

Sony dvp-ns425p will play regular CD, but won't play any DVD


just open the player (4-6 screws) and clean the lens. I had a similar problem (plays VCD, CD but no DVD - tray will open immediately). It worked afterwards

Screen displays "Error data" when trying to play a DVD


My understanding is that the DVD player uses a different lens to the CD player. So the DVD lens might need cleaning. A CD lens cleaner would not correct the DVD side.
