Question about Mintek MDP-1070

Cover broken One of the two corner plastic **** pieces that locks into the DVD player (the back left and back right) broke off recently, and now it is difficult to get the cover to open, as the "open" button no longer does anything. Is it possible to buy/find another cover?

Yes. Parts should be available from the manufacturer and/or distributor. To find them, look in the phone book's yellow pages, consult your user manual/warranty or do a Google search on line.

Good Luck :)

The dvd open/close will not work. It does not open or close when pressed by wither remote or manually.

Mine does the same thing, it appears there is a white plastic piece of the track that slides is broken. If I take the cover off and look in the front right hand side I can push it with a pen while pressing the open button and it works. Now if I could replace the plastic piece I would be all set.

Is their a way to open a PS3 counsole, my kid might of put a couple of dvd movies in it, it turns on but then shuts down and red light flashes


To open your ps3, you need to first shut it down and disconnect all the cables connected to it, wait for about an hour for the high voltage in it to dissipate. The you get a screwdriver that matches the screws on it.

Pull the warranty sticker off of the bottom of the PS3. This will void your warranty, so make sure that the problem you are addressing is not covered by your warranty. Note that taking your PS3 to be repaired by someone other than Sony will still void your warranty. You are not losing anything by taking apart your PS3 yourself. Under the sticker will be a small piece of rubber that hides a single screw. Remove the rubber piece and unscrew the screw.

Slide the faceplate off of the PlayStation 3. After the faceplate is removed, you can now separate the two halves of the plastic covering. Remove and set aside the top piece of the plastic case to expose the internal components of the PS3. On the underside of the top plastic covering, there will be a memory card slot at the bottom-right corner.

Locate and remove the Bluetooth circuit board. Remove the four screws to lift the Bluetooth board free. This is located at the bottom-left corner of the main body of the PS3 if you have the system flat on its side instead of standing up straight. This will look like a green rectangle with a tan metal covering.

Locate the small circuit board that controls the power and eject functions of the PlayStation 3. Remove the four Phillips-head screws in order to separate this piece from the body of the system. This is located at the bottom-right corner of the PS3, directly in front of the disc box.

Locate and remove the Blu-Ray/PS3 player. This is the large tan metal box that is located in the top right corner of the PS3. Unscrew the player and flip it upside down to expose the circuit board that controls it. If you want to remove the circuit board, there are five small screws that hold it in place.

Remove the power supply from the inside of the gaming system. This is located at the top-left corner inside the PS3. To remove this component, there will be two telephone-like plugs that have to be unplugged, one at the top and one at the bottom of the power supply. Additionally, there will be 13 screws that hold the power supply in place. The back and front plastic coverings of the PS3's shell will now easily slide free.

Remove the final internal component, which is the PS3's motherboard. In order to do this, remove the metal covering the rests on top of the motherboard. There will be 11 screws that border the metal covering as well as four screws in the very center, two from each of the rectangular center pieces. Once the screws are removed, the metal covering will lift off and the motherboard will be able to be removed.

But before you get to all these parts you must have gotten your DVD movies out.

Take care

DVD stuck and wont open

Which product u use? Each product has that option in order to solve such issues. Is it an old one? There are several places where the hole is. One is near the eject button (upper left, right, bottom right). Near the tray (below or above). Bottom left. Near the volume control. If there is a sticker or something it must have behind that. You can get it in a different way also. Remove the bolts using a screw driver. There are 2 plastic blocks (located left and right near to the front plastic panel.). Push in those small pieces in and pull the plastic fron shield slightly. Then use a flat screw driver to remove the two upper locks (where the plastic panel or shield connected to the metal cover - on the upper edge). Slightly push front and then bottom until you see the disk. Then use a soft hook or something to pull the dvd out. Then Push up until the upper locks fit together with the metal shield. Push the plastic cover in until the side locks are fit together with the metal cover.

DVD Player Won't TUrn

If the unit does not see the door switch (the door where the disks are inserted) it will power off after a few seconds. Under the door there is an adjustment for the door switch. It's about an inch back from the front face of the unit and - this is tricky - it's behind a small plastic cover. If you push with your finger you will feel a soft spot and will see the edges of plastic. The plastic piece is about a quarter inch high and less than an inch long. After removing the plastic cover you'll see the adjustment screw. Loosen the screw a little bit and you'll be able to slide the screw (which is attached to the switch). You won't see the switch, but sliding the screw left or right (it's in an oblong hole) will adjust the switch position. Change the position until the unit powers up and stays on.

Cd wont stay in

Unfortunately it is broken. Hopefully it is under warranty. I have the same issue, and I took my player apart. There is a fracture in the back left corner on the piece that holds the cd clamp up. It is plastic and can not be easily repaired. You need to contact the company, or the retailer you got it from to get it fixed. Pics to follow..

The problem is that the ridiculously cheap little plastic piece on the door hinge that is supposed to trip the switch that tells the printer that the door is open is either a) broken off or b) no longer aligned so that it pushes the switch all the way. I solved the problem by removing the top cover and gluing the switch open with super glue.

To open the cover, find yourself a small, flat piece of metal (or stiff plastic) about 1/2" wide and a few millimeters thick. (A very flat-bladed screwdriver will do, but I made myself one out of the non-sharp side of a straight-edge razor blade.) Push this into the 5 slots marked with an arrow around the sides and back of the printer (they're toward the bottom of the sides.) Pry up on the cover at the back and then pull straight up on the front. There are two flat vertical pieces that slide into slots at the front that have to come up - they were tough to make come loose, just try not to break them off.

Pick up the electronic control panel that is on the front right of the printer. (You might have to remove the silver piece of plastic at the right front corner. It pulls straight up to remove.) The switch is the little black plastic piece on the left side of the electronic control panel. Push it to the "open" position (opposite the resting position) and glue it in place. Reassemble your printer and voila! no more annoying "door closed" message!
