I have a Mintek 26"

I have a Mintek 26" LCD TV--DTV-260-and have lost the remote. A universal remote will not work even though it accepts the code. The company is out of business. Any solutions to this problem.

    I have already contacted them and it will cost me $45 for a remote. Is there any reason the Mintek will not accept a uiversal code and work.

You can buy a substitute remote from www.remotes.com.
It is not the exact replacement but they guarantee it will work.
$34.95+ shipping.

I have purchased from them before.

Link for your remote:
http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&uuid=12074117253430&smodel=DTV260&brand_pn=MINTEK_DTV260

Hope this helps.

    The reason is that Mintek did not distribute his devices code to universal remote manufacturer

|I am on your problem on the other thread.

The square black shape can be caused by closed caption turned on.

Did you try disconnecting the power cord? That should reset the closed caption setting.

If you still get the problem, it is a video circuit fault, and the main board inside must be tested.

If it is a regular square shape I would exclude damage to LCD display panel or connector cables problems.

Let me know what you think, and let me know if you did the unplug, I will see if I find the user manual.

Mintek 26 inch LCD HDTV with built-in-DVD remote not working


The reason you can't pull-up the Mintek website is because the company is out of business. I have one that is frozen on one channel and none of the buttons or remote will work. I took it to a repair shop and the said one of the circuit boards is bad but since the company is out of business they can't get the needed part. The only way to get the part is to find a set which can be cannabalized for the needed parts.
