Question about Mintek MDP-5861 Portable DVD Player
Have you tried to unplug and plug in the Device after few minutes, say 30 minutes?If not, try it.
It is quite a common problem with this model, you can try a clean on the lens,you can use a DVD cleaning kit which you can buy from Radio Shack or similar or you can clean manually.
To clean manually unplug from wall and leave two minutes.Remove cover identify the lens as a small round glass lens in the DVD tray assembly.Clean with the glass lens with a cotton bud or similar, use a small amount of isopropyl alcohol or do the clean dry, any other cleaning product could damage the unit.Remove any foreign objects in the unit.Reassemble and test
If no luck then you will need a new laser assembly I'm afraid.
Now, regarding Caps. Yes, it could be another Problem. When you Open the Player, you would see Caps like :-
If you see, Cylindrical Type Components, all those are Caps. There might be chance that any one of these could be Leaked / Bulged / Swelled. Make sure that there is no Cold Solder Joint and there is no other Broken Component on the Board.
If you find anything Swelled / Leaked / Bulged, you could De Solder and Re Solder the New Caps. The caps could be easily available in the Market. You could buy it Online or you could go to Radio Shack, Fry's.Make sure to Buy a Similar one. I have seen , if you buy a Low Quality Cap, it could again Swelled or Blown.Usually Bad Caps have Ammonia Kind of Odor.
The Cost of Caps would be less than $20.
I hope that the above information would be useful for you to Resolve the Problem.
