    DVD stuck in the TV- no response to remote or TV buttons. Will not play DVD - will not eject - will not let me view TV channels - nothing. Very frustrating as TV is relatively new. Unplugged TV for awhile thinking it might reset itself. Replaced remote batteries thinking that would help - nope. It's just stuck on the DVD title screen and only responds to the power on/off button.

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
Flashlight

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.
William

My 26" TV/DVD combo remote seems Kaputt. Nothing works from power up on. Of course new batteries added. Seems very weak design (composite buttons direct on PCB). Any solution or source for replacement...


Try a universal remote, however I would advice you to try the buttons on the set to check if it works. It might just be a problem with the TV itself..........sodeep

There's nothing you can do. The DVD unit and the TV are both controlled by IC2 bus lines that work together. You will have to have the unit repaired or invest in another set. My recommendation is " Never buy a TV with a built in DVD player". They do not last. That is from a professional stand point.

Controls Do not Work


Replace the Main Board. Take the back off and carefully remove the DVD. Avoid buying any TVs with a DVD or VCR in the unit.

On-screen Menu


Actually, it is not a Projection TV Problem. The problem is with a Mintek DTV-265 26" flat screen digital TV (not projection). I have not yet resolved the problem by unplugging the set, pressing the eject button and replugging in the set nor have I had any other suggetions. The manual clearly indicates Mintek DTV-265 26" (not Mintek DTV-263) but I feel they are very similar; however, the manual does not mention losing/restoring the on screen menu.

Remote doesn't work


According to Mintek support you should unplug your set for 30 minutes which is a reset/rebooting process. Then plug it in and hold the DVD eject button for 5 seconds [at least]. The DVD should eject unless there is another problem. If it doesn't eject then call Mintek support at 877-646-8358 for help. They told me you have to send the TV to them and they'll send a new one. If you have to do that then make sure you tell them you want your DVD returned when they get it out. Good luck.
