Question about Televison & Video
I needed new batteries for remote. I put them in, and TV has come on, but I cannot change the channel at all, or put the volume up or down, at all. It just stays on the same channel.
When the batteries would nopt work, I pressed a few buttons on the right side of TV, like "power" and "channels" and "volume." However, I do not think I did anything wrong. There must be a "button" I need to press or a certain "thing" to do to the remote, or TV. I even pulled the plug out of the wall, then placed it back in. It did no good. The TV is only less than one-year old. I do not know who the "PARENT" Company is that 'OWNS" MINTEK. It MIGHT be HP(Hewlett-Packard)....I DO know that Isaw another TV on one day, and it had the same EXACT remote...the placement of the buttons, and the color.....It was called "INITIAL" TV.
CAN ANYONE HELP ME , PLEASE? I AM "DISABLED" AND THE TV IS MY LIFE...ESPECIALLY DURING THE NIGHTTIME WHEN I AM IN PAIN, AND I AM UP, WATCHING IT. I WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR HELP, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THANKYOU SO MUCH. EVEN IF YOU HAD A TELEPHONE # FOR "MINTEK." THANKYOU.
There seems to be alot of the same problems with this tv. you can try leaving it unplugged for 30 mins and leave the batteries out of the remote for 15 mins to see if that would work. i found a # you can call for mintek products 1800-838-3315.

Just contacted QVC and was told by customer no service that they had no information at all on Mintek. Furthermore, I was told that the warranty would be covered by Mintek and not QVC. I must say I did find that a bit suprising. I expect better of QVC. Purchased the same model in November of 06. None of the buttons on the TV will repsond and it has a dvd it won't eject. If I have to pay for service that's fine, but I'd at least like to try to see if it's still under warranty.
