Please provide the model number of the player so I can look up the instructions and see what is what. Did you change from normal video (single yellow lead) to composite?

Again change all the settings what you did to adjust the video output.and check if the remote buttons are functioning.then try again to set the video. as something must have setted wrong when you first time changed the settings and this happened.

Leave it unplugged over night to let all of the power drain from it so that it can completely reset itself. Try it and you should be able to do what you need to.

    Has anyone been able to locate schematics for the power supply in this thing? The undersized power supply seems to the main point of failure. Otherwise, I have been pleased with the unit. Mine was sent back to Polaroid for RMA back in February 2008. I don't think any warranty is in effect now. 
    Please let me know if any one has tried to trouble shoot the TOPOW DVD RW POWER857B power supply. Two of the chips I can not identify are the 8pin Dip 2216A & a 4in dip 7703 

    I have tried to locate the power supply manufacturer: Shenzhen Topow Electronics Co., Ltd. Their website ishttp://www.topow.com.cn but my web browser can't handle the Chinese to English translation.

    I think it is very likely that an AT or ATX power supply could be substituted if all the pinouts of the original power supply are known.

    **Both times, my unit failed shortly after the fan started making noise. The problem has to be heat related.

    Check for any bulging capacitors specially the big green onces at location CE10 in power board. If any of the capacitor is bulging then you need to replace them. This will need some soldering skills. You can get capacitor from Ebay. I am not able to find these in RadioShack near my location.

Blu ray shows the "Blu ray Disc" Logo on TV screen and then just show a black creen


Hi! and welcome to Fixya!

It looks like your tv is unable to handle the output video resolution from your bluray. The reason why you do not have picture on the tv screen after the bluray disc logo appears.

You can follow the instruction below to set the video resolution on your player to its lowest resolution:

1. Using your bluray remote control, press the following buttons in order... STOP button (press and release) ....HOME button (press and release)....POP UP/MENU button ( press and release )
Note: press the buttons in order with 1 second interval. Make sure tv and bluray are ON when you try this. If first attempt nothing happens, try this again.

2. When the home menu screen appears after doing the above instruction, you can set the video resolution again manually. Follow the instruction:
Using the BD remote control press HOME button > then go to SETUP > select screen settings > then change OUTPUT VIDEO RESOLUTION to Auto > change also 24P OUT to 1080P // set the BD-ROM 24P OUTPUT to Auto

The next time you turn on the bluray player you will have picture again.

Let me know if this works!

I have a (cyberhome ch-dvd 300) dvd player and changed setup menu now lost video cant see to change back is there a reset code or something


I wish I could find the website that gave all the repair hints for this DVD player, but I downloaded the info, and can no longer find the site. Here is what it says with regard to your symptoms. I hope this helps. I have done all the mods the site suggested, but continue to have difficulty with the remote, tray opening, etc. I have 2 machines and used to love them, but frustration has taken it's toll. Recovering from a condition with no TV picture
Accidentally switching to PAL and getting a rolling black & white picture happens all the time to baffle users, especially on models with a System or P/N key on the remote. To get back your color and sound just switch to the proper system in the menu or put in a movie of the correct type and it can switch automatically or try the procedure below for resetting to the defaults.
Sometimes owners will accidentally switch to Progressive Scan in the menu then get no picture at all. You can fix the no picture condition on the CH-300 by resetting the defaults to interlaced as mentioned in the users manual:

"To reset the VIDEO OUTPUT, turn Off the player, turn back On, open the disc tray and press and hold the Stop button on the player for 10 seconds to reset the scan mode."

The Reset procedure doesn't seem to work on all versions but you can sometimes get a usable B&W picture allowing you to get to the menu and change the settings by connecting the composite video input of your display to the Red Pr/Cr or Green Y component output jacks on the rear of the cabinet.
You can also go into the Menu and set it blind with the following key presses on the Remote:
1. With the unit Stopped, press Setup.
2. Press Enter.
3. Press the Down Arrow 3 times.
4. Press the Right Arrow Once.
5. Press Enter.
On 300Z & 300ZS models if the video is set to Progressive Scan and you can't get a viewable picture on the Red or Green jacks try going into the Menu blind and changing it back with the following key presses on the Remote:
1. With the unit stopped, press Setup on the remote.
2. Press the Right Arrow Once.
3. Press Enter.
4. Press the Down Arrow 2 times.
5. Press Enter.
6. Press the Up Arrow 2 Times.
7. Press Enter. This should switch it back to Interlaced scan with S-Video and Composite output.
To change the Parental Control setting on the CH-300 use the factory password of 3351. For the CH-400 use 1379.

I accidently selected in the setup for TV type> Aspect 4:3 & 480p. The setting was on Aspect 4:3$ 480i. Now I cannot stop my screen from rolling so I cannot get back into the Setup area to change it back....


connect an rca connection cable on the yellow video output on your dvd player to your tv, grab your tv remote and select that input, then go to the setup menu on your dvd player and change the settings.

Set up video output


Pal output will only work when it is plugged into a pal tv. The only way you can restore is to use the remote to put the settings back to ntsc without using the display. That should work. If you don't have a pal tv you should never change devices to run on it, because it can damage your tv set. The scanning lines are very different between the two systems.

HOW TO RESTORE PICTURES AFTER SCAN


Look for a button on the remote control that says 'video output, video output mode', or something similar. If this doesnt work. Make sure its properly hooked up. Of that still doesnt work, get out the old dusty manual and take alook at how to change this. if it gives youa graphical pic in the book on how to do it, follow the pic by counting the rows and pressing the button on the remote. Or if there is a way to restore factory defaults do it,

Mom was hitting buttons and now DVD plays Blue and White!


I think your mom changed the DVD output setting. Using the remote, go to the Setup Menu, then select DVD Setup. Scroll down to the Alt Video Out option. It will either be set to "Component", S-Video, or "Off". It needs to be set to the type output you are using to go from your Go Video deck to your TV. If you are using an S-Video cable, then set it to "S-Video", if using Component cables (Red, Blue, and Green cables), then set to "Component". Otherwise it should be set to "Off".

Hope this helps.
