Mintek 1050 dvd player

My mom bought my children (from Home Shopping or QVC) the Mintek 1050 DVD player. My children probably messed with something because it won't play a dvd. I put one in, it says loading, makes a funny noise (like a light scrapping sound), spins for a minute, than says no disc. Help!! Thanks.

    Thanks, but it didn't work. I think it might be something more serious (darn kids!!)

Sounds like something may be stuck inside the unit. If there is no warranty left, UNPLUG the device from the mains, undo the 2 or 4 screws on the sides of the unit, lift off the lid and just look to see if there is a foreign object inside or a DVD,(if at some point one of the kids put 2 Discs in and closed it, one of them could have got pushed over the top of the drive and got jammed), remove it and put the lid back on. Just make sure you don't touch or fiddle with any thing inside as not to damage it further.
Another possibility is that something is stuck to laser lens which you will only be able to see if you take the lid off.
DANGER WARNING do not take the lid off in the same room as the kids, or they WILL do it themselves, when you are not about.

I use my dvd player everyday. the model is a mdp


Sounds like the power pack/charger is at fault.
Test with a tester or bulb(correct voltage, will be written on power pack/charger) and a piece of wire.
Check for a blown fuse in the mains plug.

Dvd player not reading disk


With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you.

Mintek DVD-2580 DVD


I might have what you want. The mintek dvd 2580 password " screen " looks like it wants four numbers, it wants five numbers.
And they are 88888 as set by the manufacturer. If you ever need the code for the remote control it should be 0717. I hope this helps.
