Question about Car Audio & Video
I've had a mintek mdp-1750 for a few years now. Recently, it has started stuttering/skipping. It is like the video is starting/stopping in quick succession. If I pause the movie, then press play again - it plays normally but only for one second to several. Any help would be appreciated. thanks.
It would seem from your post/description that your car video player is suffering either from weak lens or partially stuck slider shafting.
Weak lens can either mean dust, grime or dirt partial obscuring the viewing eye of the reader laser, corrective procedure would involve cleaning, re-calibrating or in some case direct replacement. A workaround is to use CD cleaners that are available in most computer stores.
Stuck slider shafting is a 3mm metal rod about 5 cm long where the laser housing/carriage slides to and fro while reading the disc. It is possible that it is dirty, clogged with dust or the lubrication has gummed up. This component need not be replaced but would require cleaning and re-application of appropriate lubricant.
Except with the use of the CD cleaner, both repairs would require that the unit be removed from installation and opened up. Though this does not require that much familiarity with electronics and components, it does involve a bit of technical work. Should you not be comfortable going through this route, you may need to seek the services of a qualified professional.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
