Question about Mintek DTV-263 26 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

No customer service no help

Purchased TV 6/06, never took it out of the box until 7/07 due to remodelling. TV played great for 8 weeks, then shut off abruptly and does not work at all. Out of warranty to date of purchase. toll free number for customer services states to call during business hours, I did, then it states the office is closed. The toll number is constantly busy. Took it my local tv repair guy, he can't fix it due to no manual or instructions. What do I do next?

Technika tv/dvd the dvd is only in black and white and wont play the discs

you can try using a DVD cleaner disk on your unit, try several times to make cretin it is clean then try your DVD`s again, if the unit was stored in a damp area this may be a problem, DVD players can be finicky due to this, there may also be a manufacturing defect in the unit that made it fail prematurely.

Any High quality RCA type Audio/Video cables will work for your installation, I just researched this for you.

As for your second question copying from DVD to DVD is a tricky situation. DVD's have several forms of copy protection including CSS Macrovision Level 2 and Encryption. Under the fair use act you are legally allowed to make backups of media that you own. I am not going to post the solution here as it may violate site rules but I know how to do it. If you contact me I will tell you how.

I hope you find this information useful, Feel free to contact me with any of your technical needs. I do this for a hobby, My info is always FREE....

OK in these manuals above you should find, all the information, to reset any codes, the child lock, is most likely on, you need to disable it.
With the TV turned on, simultaneously press VOLUME down button on the front of the TV set and the number 7 button on the remote control to reset pin code and customer ID.
If that above doesn't work, try below.

CHILDLOCK Press ANY NUMB 3 TIMES, THEN PRESS VOL- ON SET & "7" ON R/C FOR 5 SECS this should disable it.

Sky hd remote code needed please

Sky High Definition SkyHD uses a new design of Slim line remote control. The Default TV code pre-programmed into the RCU is now for Phillips and is (0)065. The SkyHD RCU is programmed in the usual manner using either the instructions in the Digital Installation Manual or via the Sky Customer Service option in the Interactive on-screen menu.
The SkyHD RCU can also be programmed to operate Sky+ boxes as well as SkyHD:
Press the TV button.
Press and hold SELECT and i together until the LED flashes twice.
Press the number button 1 and then press SELECT.
(Obviously you can't have a SkyHD and a Sky+ Digibox both in the same room).
Note: To re-programme the RCU for Sky HD box operation only, repeat the above process pressing the 2 button in step three.
Keep pressing HELP and waiting a few seconds until you find the correct command that activates the AV source you require then press SELECT.
The HELP button will now directly activate the chosen AV source instead of toggling through the alternative options to reach it.
There are 18 AV source commands to be tried before the RCU blinks 3 times to indicate it is out of options.
The Sky Guide buttons (SKY, tv guide, box office, services & interactive) can now be directed to use the same AV source as the newly programmed HELP button.
Press SELECT and GREEN until LED flashes twice.
Press HELP then SELECT and the LED will flash Twice.
The Sky Guide buttons will now instruct the TV to switch to the desired AV source and the RCU will be in Sky Mode.
Discussion here:
You can also use a Sky+ remote to control a SkyHD digibox.
See codes page for SkyHD

Cant Power up/down. DVD player wont work

You can try leaving the television unpluged for a couple of days and see if letting the circuits completely discharge will let the television reset itself to normal operation. You can also call Toshiba customer support and ask them if this problem is common and if there is a simple solution. The customer service telephone number is 1-800-631-3811. Give them the model number of your television and they will help you. I hope this information help you with your problem.

No system control

According to Mintek customer service they know about this design problem. If the TV is still under warranty you'll need to call them for an RMA and ship the TV to them [at your cost even though it's their bad design] for a replacement. They didn't impress me with their service and it took me a few months to get everything squared away. Because of all the problems I had with them I will not recommend their products to anyone.

TV keeps shutting off after 10 seconds

It's possible from what you described that your center LED or prisim was broken when the tape was extracted. Like many others these units depend on a series of startup checks and one being the tape path. On the play table of the VCR is a center prisim/LED and two light sensitive diodes on either side of the tape loading assembly. If these diodes do not detect the infared beam the unit will go into shutdown. I'd check there and let me know. Bill

VHS problem, any help?

It sounds to me like you have a problem with the reel sensors not detecting movement of the tape through the VCR. This could also be caused by a defective voltage regulator(s) that powers the sensors. This model was made by symphonic/funai (1-800-242-7158), and it is not likely worth repairing.
