Mintek mdp1750 skips/stutters

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.

Hi,

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.

My Mintek 1750 won't play dvd's when I install dvd and close lid the open icon at top left corner shows and it will not play


It sees the lid as being open. The lid has a projection from it that pushes a door switch when it is closed. Is this piece broken off ? or the switch is defective....

DVD player skips audio and/or frames


PowerBook G4 is at least a five-year-old machine at this point. A DVD drive can **** in lots of dust in five years. Try hooking up to an external DVD drive. If it plays the same discs with no problem, you need a cleaning or replacement. Frankly, an external DVD drive is cheaper than replacing your internal drive.

Have a Denon DCD-520 and it skips forward and back while playing


Hopefully, it may just need cleaning and lube.

I have a Denon DCM-460 purchased from Goodwill a couple days ago and had problem with one CD-R skipping and stuttering toward the end.

Cleaned the CD which helped a little but still started skipping and stuttering.

Noticed a scratch toward the outer end which I suspect is where the problems occurred.

Anyway, last night I cleaned laser, rails, lubed spindles and moving parts. I used 99.9% alcohol to clean. I used a light teflon oil (Tri-Flow) to lube spindles and rails. And white electronic grease where you see remnants of white grease.

Today, I now played through the problem CD-R with no problems.

Assuming placement is level and stable, certainly worth a try and the effort.
