Re: mintek 263

I understand your problem. Please try my solution and even though it is the same manufacturer but a different model number
but I think it will work. I have posted my solution in this site
and also other fix-it sites but I will post it here for you.

Late last year, my friend had the same problem. She and her friends tried for two months but it was impossible to physically pulled the stuck DVD out from the unit. I was happened to be in the area and she asked me if I can help her retrieved her movie
DVD disc which was stuck inside the MinTek DTV-265-D.

GOOD NEWS! I was successful in getting the
stuck DVD disc out of the unit and back into her hands.

Here is what I did to fix the stuck DVD problem:

I. Requirements

a. Tools:
Phillips Screwdriver (magnetic head will be the best)
Tweezers - Only if you don't have a magnetic Phillips screwdriver

b. Surface:
Large flat padded table because you will need it to lay the TV - flat.

c. People:
I did it by myself but having an extra hands is a plus.

II. Instructions

1. Disconnect power cord, power switch button "off" position, unplug cables and video cables from the unit.
2. Place the TV unit flat on the surface - screen on the bottom - Back cover side facing up
3. Back Stand: Remove the TV bracket stand in the back by unscrewing the 8 screws.
4. Back Cover: Unsecured the back cover panel side of the unit - 9 screws (After unscrewing the screws you might need to use the tweezers to lift and remove the screws.)
5. Back Cover: Carefully lift (unlock) the back cover panel slightly away from the screen unit slowly because it is wired to the circuit board. In other words, you can't remove it completely which it is OK and it is not necessary. This back cover panel removal sounds easy but the cable coaxial connector block it and making it difficulty.
Therefore, you will have to wiggle the cover until it is free and away from the coaxial connector because you will need some clearance space to access the DVD unit.
6. DVD Unit: Unlock the DVD unit by unscrewing 4 (silver) screws.
7. Now you are set and ready to release your stuck DVD.
An extra hands will be nice to have but two hands is a requirements to do the next couple of steps.
8. DVD Unit:
On the front side, locate the two (black triangle-shape or arrow shape) slot holders.
They are in a locked position.
Using your fingers lift and hold both sloth holders in the up position.
(You might have to raise these holders (up and down) several times.)
As you are holding up these slot holders please perform the next step (#9).

9. Power:
Push power button on the unit switch "on"
Plug back the power cord into the unit AC inlet
Unit Ready Light: "red" standby light is on
Remote Control: Press the power/DVD button - st the remote to DVD Unit Ready Light: "Green"

** Important: Step No. 8 and Step No. 9 must be done simultaneously **

10. VIOLA! The DVD disc will automatically slide out of slot from the DVD unit.

Good Luck.

Sony DVP-S7000 DVD player does not respond to front panel buttons or the remote control

The only possible solution and it is a long shot, unplug unit from wall receptical, now press and hold power for 60 seconds, this will drain any residual voltage and reset the microprocessor in hopes it will work. If this fails I recommend the sony technician.

I have a philips DVDR3510V ( DVD/VHS Recorder) which is 16 months old. The problem is that the buttons on the recorder do not work ( except power button) . We thought we had got round this as the remote...

I can only speak to getting the tape out. If all else fails, you can take the player to your local best buy and have them remove the tape for a minimal fee of no more than 30$.

Device code for mintek dvd. No code for mintek dvd in my user guide for dish network to control power for dvd on my dish remote.

You may want to search for the code by performing a Power Scan, I will include the steps below. If this doesn't resolve this there is most likely a compatibility issue.
Power Scan:
1.) Press and hold the correct VCR button (about six seconds) until all mode button backlights come on, then release.
2.) Press 500 pound (#)
3.) With the desired equipment on, press and hold the VCR/DVD button until all mode button backlights illuminate (about 3 seconds), then release.
4.) Press and release the Power button.
5.) Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desired equipment. If the code for the equipment comes up, the equipment will power off.
6.) Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.
To verify the code works try several different functions for that equipment.

We lost the remote and have a new one How do we program the new remote to the dvd player?

If the new remote is a Mintek factory remote, there is nothing to program. Just install batteries correctly and go.

The red light is on, but with the remote, and by pressing the power button on the box, nothing happens.

Won't eject disc

I use a produce bag twist tie or a very thin pearing knife. After you push the eject button slide the twist tie in the bottom of the disc slot and the dvd should pop out.

Buttons don't work

I purchased my Mintek from Costco and had the same problem. They are aware of the problems with Mintek and lack of support. If your set is from Costco or other stores try them for a solution or refund. It worked for me. I got a full refund. Most retailers have a copy of the reciept if not try anyway.

Good Luck
