Question about Televison & Video
My Mintek LCD Color TV & DVD Video Player ( Model: DTV-173 ) videohas stopped working. The sound works fine but with no Video, this tv has no use.
When I turn on the TV, it first makes a light ( Black screen to a grey-black screen) but that is all that happens. The menu options does not appear.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

Yes, for a workaround. The adapter would be 2 RCA female to 1 RCA male. You have to connect both the red and white to the female RCAs and use the male to connect to the TV's Audio INput. The yellow goes to the video. There should be no negative technical effect other than lost of stereo quality. The audio output of the DVD is line level and could normally tolerate this condition.
The correct method is to use a simple line level audio mixer and mix the L& R audio signal to produce a mono signal or to use a stereo amplifier for the sound output.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

This denotes a problem with the power supply for the unit. This may be as simple as removing the power board and replacing it or as complex as repairing the board itself. Repairing the board would be the cheaper option, but In either case I would suggest that you let a qualified TV technician perform this task, due to the possibility of electrical shock hazards.
I hope this helps,

It's a text box for either closed captioning or demonstration mode. Go into the setup menu and turn off closed captioning. If you have trouble doing that, then just restore factory settings.
