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.

Mdp-1020 won't read any disk


When you start the portable dvd empty, does it 'load' the firmware first. Then you put the dvd in. It also needs to load the title etc. into the portable. If it does not read use TDK lens cleaner. If it wroks, fine. Otherwise rinse off the dvd with hot water, then blot dry defore trying in your portable again.
