Re: dvd player reading no disc

If you have been using the unit in a dusty environment or in a smoking allowed area the laser lens should be cleaned and the unit should be tried again. Replacing the entire dvd player portion of the unit should also fix the problem. I have not looked into this or tried it yet but it looks to me like any computer dvd player drive would work with this unit. you may have to buy new or modify power and data cables to accomidate size differences but that is also worth a shot. Sometimes player mfg will use parts that interchange between units. Good luck. Dan

"No disc" error

This means that the lens of your dvd player is having a hard time reading the discs. It could be dirty. You need to run a disc cleaner to run into your player for like 30 seconds. It it does not solve the problem. You might need to clean the lens manually. Open the casing and unscrew the plastice plate covering the lens. Then get a q tip damped in an alcohol. Gently wipe on the lens' surface and let it dry. Return everything back and play those discs again.

Rotel dvd player not reading dvd but will read cd

if it doesnt read any kind of dvd discs at all it only means you have been rip off. It happened to my sony dvd player that I bought from this website. I tested it and it only reads cd or audio cd. Good thing my couzin fixes electronics, He checked on the lens and it turned out that the lens has been replaced with an audio/cd lens like the one we use for our car stereo. Too bad!!!

Won't play dvd's

Try buying a Laser Lens Cleaner Disc from Wal-Mart, FYE music store, or any other place that might sell DVD players. Your Laser Lens that reads the DVD'S is full of dust. Try using the laser lens cleaner disc i mentioned to clean the laser lens.

Coby DVD shows Invalid Disc HELP PLEASE

Did you make the disk if you made the disk your computer has to give it a digital signature so the DVD player can read it if you're using a regular DVD then I would very carefully using rubbing alcohol and Q tip clean the actual laser I would be very careful doing this if too much rubbing alcohol is on the Q tip it will ruin the laser you can also try resetting the DVD player by taking out the battery and unplugging it from any power source and leave it that way for at least 20 seconds to a minute if that doesn't work you might have something else wrong

This unit is in a cadillac escalade and it will take the disc in but it will not read

First you should purchase a dvd cleaner and run it through the machine a few times.

Second, when you say it does not read, are you saying that nothing is showing on the lcd display to show it is playing a disc or are you say it is not reading the disc at all?

Won't play

I have the same player with a similar problem, though the cable is not broken on mine as far as I can tell.

When I put in a disc and close the lid, I can hear the disc spin and the drive seek, but after about 30 seconds, it always shows "NO DISC" in the upper-left area of the screen. I used to use it daily to listen to MP3 audio books on my 45-minute-long drive to and from work every day and I'd occasionally watch DVDs at lunch, but now it does not read any type of disc at all.

After I did a Google search, it seems that Mintek's products are pretty crappy overall and the worst part is that Mintek now appears to be out of business. Their web site, is now completely gone and there is no current contact information.

It's too bad because I really did like the player's capabilities and relatively long battery life. It came with a remote, a wall charger, a car charger, (cheap) headphones, and a video out to composite video cable. Before I used it on my drive, my son used it in his room because we didn't have a second DVD player and it worked great for him then too.
