Hello mark85,

I posted this some time ago but I think it can help you, so here it goes:

You can try a cleaning disk, however it has been my experience that the cleaning disk will not help, but it is a good place to start from. More then likely it is a problem with the laser pickup photo-transistor, these often malfunction causing this problem. I would suggest if you are going to try to repair this yourself, you will need a multimeter, a laser meter, and a schematic. The first step is to measure the laser energy leaving the laser diode and see if it matches the specifications in the schematic, if it does not, check the bias voltage with the multimeter, this is to determine if the problem is the bias voltage or the diode itself. If the diode is bad replace it. if the diode is good then the pickup becomes suspect. Using the multimeter measure the bias voltage on the photo-transistor with and without the presence of the laser light from the diode. This will tell you if the photo-transistor is good or bad, if the transistor is bad replace it , if it is good check the components that make up the biasing circuitry.

Now This test will produce a test of go or no-go on the laser diode and the photo-transistor. One of these components or their related biasing circuitry is either bad or about to go bad, by testing the voltages and laser light levels you should be able to determine which one or if both have a problem.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

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.

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. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Other than that there is little that can be done. The optics are having trouble reading the disc. You can confirm this by trying a music CD. If the CD works, it is a good indication that the optics are starting to fail.

Reading but DVD is not spinning in portable dvd player


Some suggestions assuming you know you're using good discs, and have this problem with more then 1 disc. In anything that requires you to open the player and play around in it, I also assume you're not too akward with electronics, and out of warranty: spindle motor problems - you could either fix that by changing the motor, or occasionaly by dropping a little bit of 3 in 1 oil on the shaft. Just dont start it as a hobby if you can still go complain at the store... Good luck
