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.

Tip

Mintek factory solution for the forever loading disc problem.


With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you.

"no disc" pops up when dvd is inserted into Mintek dvd-1600


The laser lens could be dirty. Try using a reliable CD/DVD lens cleaner kit like the Belkin CD DVD cleaning Kit but if that does not work the player could be defective or already broken. I would shop for a better-name brand player on eBay so that I won't spend too much on another player.

Need Customer Service Number


Mintek is out of business. There is no service for their products. You must try to find someone who has experience with the product and does repairs.A Previously listed service center is a good location. You can also look for service personnel who may be working on their own. Try using the internet search engines and look for anyone servicing Mintek products. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

DVD+R Wont Play in Mintek DVD 1600 Player


Kay what happens with some players is that they are only bulit to play a certain kind of disc. It also may be because the player is old. If you buy a new player it will be able to play all DVD's that you put in it.

Won't play


I have the same player with a similar problem, though the cable is not broken on mine as far as I can tell.

When I put in a disc and close the lid, I can hear the disc spin and the drive seek, but after about 30 seconds, it always shows "NO DISC" in the upper-left area of the screen. I used to use it daily to listen to MP3 audio books on my 45-minute-long drive to and from work every day and I'd occasionally watch DVDs at lunch, but now it does not read any type of disc at all.

After I did a Google search, it seems that Mintek's products are pretty crappy overall and the worst part is that Mintek now appears to be out of business. Their web site, www.mintekdigital.com is now completely gone and there is no current contact information.

It's too bad because I really did like the player's capabilities and relatively long battery life. It came with a remote, a wall charger, a car charger, (cheap) headphones, and a video out to composite video cable. Before I used it on my drive, my son used it in his room because we didn't have a second DVD player and it worked great for him then too.
