First use a dvd lens cleaner its a cd with small brush at the bottom,
This will clean the optical lens.
If it still freezes while playing cd it might be the optic lens was damaged and need replacement.

Go the website of the manufacturer and see if there is any info about a default password?

This is the closed captioning text box. Search the menus to turn off closed captioning. The reason for its seemingly random appearance is that not all channels nor all programs provide this service.

It is not available online with any of the vendors. The only 2 options :-

1. You would be able to find some old DTV-173 in salvage or junkyard. Purchase that and replace the part.

2. There is only one seller who have boards for Mintek :-


The above board might not be suitable for your board. Contact the seller and try to get all the information.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Do not touch any components on the circuit board. Remove jewelry, wear safety glasses and gloves. Remove all the screws from the back with an arrow pointing to them and any screws on the bottom holding the PC board in. Discharge the tube if it is a CRT by grounding a screwdriver to the chassis ground with a clip lead. Slide the screwdriver under the "suction cup" on the tube with the large red wire coming out. Disconnect all the connectors from the PC board and write down how to reconnect. Slide out the PC board and retrieve the disc from the DVD mechanism. Reassemble

Root is just the dvd menu, when you put a dvd in the player it will show Root when the dvd disk menu come on, its not a fault just informs you that its working,

Sounds like the laser has developed a fault, first i would try cleaning the laser lens with a CD / DVD Cleaning disk and if that fails , open it up and using a Q-tip and methylated spirits , dab a small bit of Meths on the cotton tip and in a circular motion clean the laser eye gently But Make sure it is unplugged, if that fails you will need a new laser lens.

hope this at least helps.

The default code to unlock parental control on this model is 88888. Are you able to enter it from the front controls? If so, it should work.

I know this is an old post, is this still available? I could use it.

Mintek Televison... | Answered on May 15, 2009

I have had that problem and the cause was the DVD installed wasn't in a format that the DVD player could read.

Mintek Televison... | Answered on Mar 10, 2009

So you need a power adapter? And other cords that come with it? correct?

Thanks, looking into it.
