Question about Mintek MDP-1815 Portable DVD Player
When you close the lid it spins and everything, but it says no disc. it goes through and says loading, but comes up no disc! can you help?
I had this problem on my Mintek MDP-5861 and was amazed when I solved it.
When I put in a CD or DVD it would not spin up and I would get a message No Disc. I was thinking the motor or laser was bad.
I took the thing apart and visually checked all the cables and electronics and everything seemed to be in order. After searching for technical manuals and playing with it for a couple of hours I was about to throw it in the trash.
Instead, I read the tip about cleaning it, and all I did was brush the top of the laser a few times with my shirt, put in a CD and then it worked!
I could not believe this! I have owned all kinds of CD and DVD players over the years and even very careful cleaning the lens never corrected any problems. So, to swipe the lens with my shirt a couple of times and suddenly have a DVD player that would not play at all suddenly start working I was amazed.
When I visually checked all the components the laser appeared clean, so it must have just been an invisible speck or smudge on the surface of the laser lens that was causing this.
I would not recommend using any solvents, cleaners, or alcohol.

Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Other than that there is little that can be done. The optics are having trouble reading the disc. You can confirm this by trying a music CD. If the CD works, it is a good indication that the optics are starting to fail.
