Question about Mintek Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Model MDP 1070 portable dvd unit. It works well on all modes except for playing dvds.I had it to a repair shop but with no success. They say that the laser reader is not tracking across the disc.If you put a disc into play mode it will read for about 10 seconds and then stop. This player has played only about 25 discs in its life.

The laser may be lacking intensity, there may be a fault in the mechanical mechanism that the laser is riding on, and or there may be a defect in the electronics that runs the tracking alignment parameters for the laser unit.

To properly analyse these players requires some extensive instruntation, the service manual including the alignment procedure, and someone who is experienced at performing the procedure.

In reality, it does not pay to service these DVD players unless it is a very expensive unit. In this case it would be best to send the unit out for factory service.

    Good luck!

Problem with Mintek MDP-1810 Portable DVD Player that will play movie DVDs but not computer burned video DVD

The problem I think is with the burner on your pc. Try re burning on another program like Nero and pay attention to the options. It will ask you if you wish to play disc in all types of players.

I was given a mintek dvd player model mdp-1770 it is say no disc when there a dvd in it i have tryed recalbreting it by sliding back forth four time then loading a cd but it still reads no disc

If the unit plays CDs but not DVDs, then the LED for DVDs is burned out. There are separate LEDs for CD and DVD operation.
If neither plays, there is a more fundamental problem. In any case, only factory service will correct the problem with your "white elephant".
I have exactly this model.
