    It apperas its the internal controll IC and it needs to be returned t mintek To be fixed if you got warrenty.. If not A local technician might be able to change it.. but more than likely you eill have to send it to minitek with or without warrenty.. READ THE ABOVE LINKS THERE ARE TONS MORE I CAME ACROSS BUT THOSE WERE THE MOST DESCRIPTIVE

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jan 11, 2008

    Do you wish to attempt your self or would you be taking it to a technician ?

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jan 11, 2008

    To Repair this item you will need to purchase a Main board since the component isnt sold seperately.. You can order one from the mintek eighter from their web page or by phone.. There is a posibility it may have a distributor close to where you live.. Once you get it, simply replace your main board with the purchased one... I am looking for an alternate solution ..

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jan 11, 2008

    I will still look for more information for you. And i will look for a refribished board as well or even a substitue controll component.

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jan 11, 2008



    1.) remove the back panel from your set,

    2.) on the mainboard there should be a battery, remove it,,

    3.) press and hold the power button for 5 seconds,, this it to discharge any remaining eletricity..

    That should reset the board (hopefully)

    Replace your battery and turn it on...

    keep fingers crossed..

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jan 12, 2008

    well u cam just snip or unsolder the wires, besides if this works you'll save the money :) if it doesnt, well it wasnt working any way,, give it a shot..

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jan 12, 2008

    unfortunately you can only get it from them it looks like,, i have been tryong to find one and as well a refribished one with no luck. A buddy of mine suggested that you can speak to a local technician and have hime take a look at it first and see if he knows what could work.. i think that you should do that cause meybe he knbow a substuite for the controll ic (thats the bad part you got)...

    KEPP NAGGING THGEM THEY WILL CALL BACK,,, most companys need a good nag to get things done.

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jan 15, 2008

    Thats going to be hard to get,, my suggestion is speak to a technician and have hime take a look at it, he will be in a better position to suggest a replacement, a quick fix or a substitute...

    I made a few calls and sufred quite a bit and came up with nada... Look at the time convergence when calling mintek..

    but my best bet is that you will find a substitute faster then a original replacement..

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jan 17, 2008

    wow,, I really soory sir, but i wont be able to help with this as i am not a certified technician, I just happen to know quite a lot,,

    There aint any distributors close to me eighter as i live in trinidad in the caribbean,, I'm guesing here you will wind up buying a main board..I will post a message in the fourm requesting any information anyone ,might have,, .. I'll do that now, but i think you should prepare yourself to get an entire main board,, I suggest you consult a technician and see if there are any substitutes you can use.. But Let me post it in the forum and see if anyone here can help..

Brand new tv with built in DVD player when you insert a DVD, it just pops right back out and will not play the disc

Hello there,

I believe you need to switch the TV to the DVD input mode before inserting a disc. There should be a button on the remote or the TV labelled INPUT or SOURCE. Try pressing this repeatedly until "DVD" is shown on the screen or use the UP/DOWN arrows keys on the remote to select DVD from the input list, then press OK / SELECT / ENTER to choose DVD mode. You should then be able to insert a disc and play it.

I need to check some details for this TV and will get back to you shortly. If the TV really wont accept any disc, then you've bought a lemon and the TV needs to be returned to the store for replacement asap. I will post back with more details below in a few minutes.

Playing back widescreen problem

The TV itself uses the CTC203 chassis and is not capable of switching between normal and widescreen. This is an issue with your DVD player and not a problem with the TV.
