Question about Mintek MDP-1030 Portable DVD Player

Nothing happens when I try to play a movie

When I go to play a movie nothing happens. There's no sound coming from the disc, and the screen stays black. I've tried charging it, but the light to indicate it's charging doesn't come on. When I turn on the player the light comes on, but nothing else happens. I've only had it for 6 days. Does Mintek have a website or a 1-800 number?

Re: Nothing happens when I try to play a movie

Sounds like an internal hardware issue, if you feel daring enough, try oppening the case and see if anything is out of place, otherwise, You can either take it back to the store for a refund/exchange or contact the manufacturer and tell them it is defective.  Usually if this is the case they wil;l send you a new one for free.  Good Luck ;)

New Sharp BD-HP16U won't play Blu Ray Discs

You need to force the player to the the Top Menu of the disc.
The way to do this is: load disc, wait until it says "Reading Completed" (about 1 minute).

Wait for the PLAY icon ">" to show in the upper right corner (this may take up to 30-40 secs).

Once you see the ">" Hit the STOP button on the remote to get to the player's splash screen.

From the Sharp splash screen Hit the "Top Menu/Title List" button on the remote and wait for the circulating dots and then the disc menu appears.
Play the movie from the menu and you should be good to go.

When I try to play a movie on my Sony S300 player, it will play the previews and then go to the menu as normal. When I hit "Play", it does nothing. The other features on the menu work fine. I can go to...

I had a similar problem and it was fixed by upgrading the firmware to the latest version. Go to the Sony site and it will give you full instructions on how to do this.

LG HT762 DVD Player won't play divx anymore?

Try to unplug the player for a few seconds and then plug it back. It should work again with the DivX files. I had an identical problem and since then, it works just fine.

Wharfedale DVD- 265 saying invalid disc

Check and see if there is dust or dirt or something on the lens. Dirt, grease and fingerprints will cause a DVD player to have read errors.
If it a new player, or under warranty, get it replaced. It sounds like it is failing.

Hope that helped.

Disney dvd player wont play movies (dvd) but plays music (cd) fine

Might be the type of movie - some of them are only able to play "G" ratings. Try this: click <play> 1234 <play> It will likely unlock the dvd that is in and will begin to play. You will have to do the 'code' each time, or there's an unlock program you can purchase.

Your DVD player is having a problem reading the disc. This is what is accounting for the pausing and the slow loading times...especially if it plays other movies without hitches. Even if the DVD is cleaned, some scratching on the disc will prevent it from being viewed properly. Blockbuster shoudl give you another disc to try of the same movie if you ask. Also, you can try getting a cleaner for your DVD player to remove dust and help it read discs better.

There should be a tiny hole that you can get a paper clip through on your DVD this hole leads to a manual release mechanism that should open the DVD drawer. I hope this helps
