Question about Televison & Video
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.
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.
