Question about Mintek DVD-1710 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

I have a Mintek 1710 DVD player. The center spindle that holds the DVD has disintegrated. Therefore, when I start the DVD to rotate, it is thrown off center. I would like to obtain a replacement part for this spindle. How do I go about doing this? martinseitz1227@gmail.com

I'm afraid you wont find any supplier for any new replacement parts for this unit. These no-name brands rarely provide any kind of reliable product support or customer service.

You can however find a great many of these units in various states of operation fairly cheap ($15) on EBay . Many of them however were in questionable condition and were listed "AS IS", which is EBay code for broken.

Perhaps you could order a cheap one online, have it delivered, and then take it apart yourself. Hopefully you could make at least one working unit out of all the parts you would have available.

Here is a link to a few of the items I found on EBay which you may find useful:

http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=Mintek+&_sacat=0&_odkw=Mintek+1710&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and items at the website indicated.

Either way, the unit is certainly not worth the money it would cost to bring the unit in to be repaired by a technician. A shop would charge you at least $40 labour just to look at it, which is probably approaching the entire initial purchase price of the unit.

If you are unable to do the repairs yourself with the spare parts from EBay, then I would just dispose of the unit altogether. Next time buy a good brand name product like SONY who offer superior products and excellent customer support.

Good luck.

My 1710 mintek keeps saying loading but doesn't load. What do I do? Thank You.


Hi.

Clean the lens with a dvd cleaning kit. It should solve the problem. If you load the disc and you don't hear the disc whirling, it means that the motor is not spinning thus, the player will not identify any disc. It is time to have the dvd lens repaired or replaced.


Hope this helps. Thank you for using Fixya!

I have sound for my Mintek 1710 dvd but no picture


are you using the composite output (yellow) or the component or HDMI outputs. Connect with the yellow first. if you can get into the menu you will probably find a setting to use the component or hdmi output. If you don't get a picture using the yellow output - unit is bad.
