Question about Mintek DVD-1710 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

No picture on LCD

The LCD on my Mintek 1710 portable player no longer shows a picture. The sound works, and the picture shows on the TV when it's plugged in to the AV ports. If I look closely at the dark screen, I can see the Mintek logo come up when the unit powers on, but there's no light to make it, or the movie itself, visible. The only suggestion in the owner's manual is that there may be condensation on the lens, and to leave the unit on for a couple of hours to evaporate the moisture. I've watched several movies through the TV since this problem started, so heating the mechanism isn't the solution. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Re: no picture on LCD

The LCD backlight has died. If it is still under warranty you may want to contact Mintek and see what they can offer you.

My 1710 mintek keeps saying loading but doesn't load. What do I do? Thank You.


Clean the lens with a dvd cleaning kit. It should solve the problem. If you load the disc and you don't hear the disc whirling, it means that the motor is not spinning thus, the player will not identify any disc. It is time to have the dvd lens repaired or replaced.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using Fixya!

I have sound for my Mintek 1710 dvd but no picture

are you using the composite output (yellow) or the component or HDMI outputs. Connect with the yellow first. if you can get into the menu you will probably find a setting to use the component or hdmi output. If you don't get a picture using the yellow output - unit is bad.

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.
