SOURCE: Lost remote for Mintek TV-DVD combo

hey, had the same problem.
found one on ebay for $20 shipped.
also heard that the "Kameleon" Universal remote, from radioshack, will work with it.
The remote is the RC-600 (atleast for my DTV-265), and here's where I got it on ebay:

SOURCE: mintex 37 inch wide screen. remote is working however cannot change channel, input source or volum. only turns tv off. The buttone on tv doesnot work connot change input source or volume

Check if the remote is in TV position, that is, because most of the remote controllers have the feature that you can program them for use with another devices. Make shure that one button that says "TV" in pressed and released once before you try to change any function on the TV.

SOURCE: mintek -dtv-265-d stuck in DVD mode

These units have had a failure in either logic board or the main board. The only way to repair these units is to get replacement boards and see if this repairs the problem. You can try to source these parts at e-bay. Use the search engine, plug in the make of you television model number, and part number of the board you think you need for the repair.The search engine will bring up all available parts for you.You can also try this website for parts. http://www.discount-merchant.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=&Search=PCB&RefineBy_Manufacturer=MINTEK I hope this information is of some help to you with your problem.

There's nothing you can do. The DVD unit and the TV are both controlled by IC2 bus lines that work together. You will have to have the unit repaired or invest in another set. My recommendation is " Never buy a TV with a built in DVD player". They do not last. That is from a professional stand point.

In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Can not find codes for toshiba remote for my sony dvd home theater changer nor any specifics on hooking it up properly and it has s video but no hdmi hook ups help By the way i already pd 1459.00 dollars...


To find the code for the Toshiba remote to the Sony DVD changer.


If you do not know the device code for a particular device, you can view each available code for that device mode and sample the functions to find the code that operates the target device. 1 Press a mode select button on the remote. 2 While holding down INFO button , press 8, 5, 0, 0. The remote control enters program mode. 3 Point the remote at the target device and press Power button, 1, VOL UP, CH UP or PLAY. Some keys are ignored if they are not applicable to a specific device mode. 4 If the device responds to the remote control: Press INFO button to store the device code. The mode select button blinks twice. The remote exits program mode. 5 If the device does not respond to the remote control: Press UP. Press POWER. Repeat this step until the device responds to the remote. Press INFO . Note: When a search cycle is completed, the mode select button blinks 3 times. The remote displays each available code again. If no key is pressed within 10 seconds, the remote exits program mode and returns to the previous code.
The previous section was from the manual p.86: http://www.iusermanual.com/tv/toshiba-46vx700u-tv-manual.htm


Hooking the DVD changer to the TV: The TV has composite video inputs and can accept s-video by a adapter cable as in: http://www.amazon.com/S-Video-3-RCA-Composite-Cable-Laptop/dp/B002ZKTCUM/ref=pd_cp_e_1

My Sony Bravia doesnt work with remote control, with any remote including universals


You didn't include the Sony Bravia model that you own - so I can't be more specific. If the TV is set up to use RF (radio frequency) codes instead of IR (infrared) codes; the universal types probably will not work. This is because most universal remotes are the IR type.

The remote included with your TV may have inadvertently be switched to send the codes as an IR type while the TV will respond only to RF type codes. It may also be that the TV was changed to respond to RF codes only. Either way, check your manual (or your TV menu settings) to see how to set the TV and the remote to work in the same mode.

If you can't find your manual, reply with your TV's model number - and if possible the remote's model number, too. I'll see what I can find that is specific to your TV.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

While watching a dvd on the Q2035a I was using a seperate dvd player and I use a universal remote for both the dvd player and Q2035a. I began to adjust settings for the dvd player using the univ. remote....


Hello, It sounds like when you pressed the remote you inadvertently changed the scan on the ctv. This can cause the ctv ( colour tv ) to change from say ntsc to pal or similar. Even a reset button wouldnt help as it sounds like it is within the setup menu. You could try, as I have done this myself with a similar problem, disconnecting your dvd and putting it aside. Then, pressing the remote when in tv mode and watch for any change in screen flicker etc. If you have the original remote for ctv use that. If as you say, the tv goes to standby mode, you may have damaged the power supply, as the power supply will shut down to standby at any sign of a short.

When I turn the tv on, it comes on in DVD mode and won't change over to the tv mode.


You have two ways to change it to TV Mode.
1 - remote control (source button) -cycle through the options.
2 - side of the unit (source button) -cycle through the options.

If the remote doesn't work, try using the button on the TV to change the source mode.
If this doesn't work, you have a problem with the TV.

Another option is to check your inputs. If you have the input for the DVD in the wrong place, that may also be causing you the inability to change from DVD mode.

If your remote transmitter is multifunction, such sa TV; DVD; and VCR operative; You may be in the wrong mode. Press the TV function first and then try to change the volume. If you still have problems, the remote may be defective.
