Question about Mintek DTV-263 26 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Mintek Fix Ryan I am following your fix for the Mintek LCD's which are frozen in the DVD mode. Mine is the DTV-265-D model and I would like to follow the procedure of attaching the component wires directly to the component input terminal on the motherboard. Problem is, on this model, there are only 2 non-flat strands and 3 flat strands coming off the component input. Your instructions said that there should be 3 of each and that the input wires are to be connected to the non-flat strands and the grounds to the flat strands. Each of the flat strands on the right & left are long while the flat strand in the center is short. One of the non-flat strands in directly between the left and middle flat strand. From this arrangement it would seem logical that the three input wires should be attached to the the corresponding flat strands and the 2 ground wires from these input wires should both be attached the non-flat strand the is between them while the 3rd input wire and ground wire should be attached to the remaining flat strand and non-flat strand. Are you sure that the input wires must be attached the the non-flat strands? If so how should this be done given the set-up I described. I'll look for your reply here on the site. Thanks PS: If your fix works it will be a god send to all those who have these frozen Mintek units and they are legion!

It may be a little different on the 26" model. It's been several months since I did the repair so my memory is a little fuzzy. It sounds like the non flat strands are a common ground and the flat ones are the hot wires. The best thing to do would be to take a multimeter and test for continuity on the center of the RCA jack and the flat strand of metal. If you get a reading, that is where the input wire should be soldered. More than likely you're correct and you should proceed as you found logical.

All you're really doing is making a new connection for the component input on the back of the TV. So just make sure that each hot wire from the DVD player will be on the strand of metal that corresponds with the hot wire from the component RCA jack, which is the center part of the jack, not the outer metal sleeve. In theory you could just attach all of the grounds from the DVD player to any metal part of the TV; I do not know if this will work however because the set might have a failsafe on the motherboard, not allowing video pass through when grounds are not detected.

I hope this helps! And please let me know if you get it working or have any other issues.

On-screen Menu


Actually, it is not a Projection TV Problem. The problem is with a Mintek DTV-265 26" flat screen digital TV (not projection). I have not yet resolved the problem by unplugging the set, pressing the eject button and replugging in the set nor have I had any other suggetions. The manual clearly indicates Mintek DTV-265 26" (not Mintek DTV-263) but I feel they are very similar; however, the manual does not mention losing/restoring the on screen menu.

I need a power cord


If it's the same as the DTV-265 26" LCD/DVD, then it is the same as a power cord for any standard PC Tower, or PC Monitor. <br><br> I bought one off ebay for $6. Or just go to your local computer store.

Mintek DTV-373-D Remote code


As far as I know, no regular universal remote will work with the mintek TV/DVD's.
I have heard that the "Kameleon" remote, from radioshack works with them.
I had the same problem, so I ordered a replacement original remote from ebay for $20. It was the RC-600 for mine (DTV-265 26" LCD/DVD)
