There is a mechanical switch that is operated by the lid as it's closed. Sometimes, a DVD player such as yours can be made to work by pressing down on the lid but this is a sure indication that something is wrong with the switch. It isn't practical to hold the lid down for the entire time you're viewing a movie so repair or replacement is the only solution

Look at the end of the charger plug you will see a color ring near the tip, take the tip and carefully look for the hole, it will be on the side or the back of the laptop slightly bigger than plug and will have a little drawing showing a circle with + and - showing.

Hi, the problem you are having is very common with all types of devices such as dvd players,phones,laptops/netbooks, etc basically anything that flips or slides open, now what is causing the loss of feed to the screen is a damaged data ribbon.
this data ribbon is a thin piece of ribbon with several single strand copper wires running through it and what happens is over time when you keep opening and closing the screen this ribbon keeps bending so it keeps the connection between the screen and the circuit board in the bottom half of the player, now over time this ribbon becomes brittle and what then happens is one or more of the copper wires that run inside this ribbon become brittle and break this then causes loss of conection with the screen and you then get no picture or any sort of feed to the screen.

now if this was a phone that you had the problem with then it would be a very easy fix as most phone shops will stock the data ribbon and as its a common fault its cheap to get fixed, how ever as yours is a portable dvd player then this is a different story, you would need to take it to a electrical repair shop or tv repair shop and ask them if they can order and fit the part for you, but as its a Mintek one then the chances of repair are slim as parts are hard to come by as they are not made to be repaired, todays electronics are throw away items which i think is bad practice as most could be fixed for a few quid and would save them going to landfill, getting the part yourself would be pretty much impossible but if you take it to a tv repair shop they may be able to match the part up off something else and get it working for you.

you will need to ask about the price and then decide if its worth getting fixed compared to buying a new player, i would say if its more than 2 years old then i would scrap it as the laser unit will be the next part to fail, if its less than a year old i would try and get it fixed as you should be able to get at least another 12 months out of it if you can get the part and have it fitted.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

They sell adapters so you can plug more than 1 devise into the electronics input- you might have to buy one, see if the plug looks slimmer.

download it from manufacturers site

Check and see if you have A/V out jacks on the unit. If you do, they will be yellow, red, and white.
They are called RCA jacks, and if you have them, and the TV has the same type of jacks, then you just need the cable that goes in between. The DVD player normally comes with them, but if not, you can purchase them at any Circuit City, or even Walmart.

If the manufacturer doesn't make such a charger, you might simply check the voltage etc on the battery or bring it to a radioshack type place and ask them to get you or order you a car charger that matches all elements of the home charger.
