Question about Cyberhome CH-LDV 700B Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

Green Power Light comes on...but doesn't do ANYTHING.

Had this player since 2/04. Given the reviews & things I've read, I'm surprised its lasted this long. Though unlike many, I will say I got MANY hours of DVD watching out of it. The DC 9V plug burned out about a year ago & have stricly been going on battery power (I have an external charger for the battery Cyberhome graciously supplied for me)...2 days ago I had a movie playing in the car fine, when attempting to power it back on, green light on the side is on, but nothing else...the DISC doesn't even SPIN. (so its not the popular "audio, no picture" problem)...is it finally D-E-A-D? I almost wanna rip this guy open & look at its guts...though it doesn't have a whole lot of SCREWS!

    Thanks for your positive comment...let's see when I can actually make TIME to crack this bad boy open...I will attempt it, but I have a feeling its nothing more then a paperweight. I guess I should be thankful I got so much use out of it given that NOBODY I've talked to has logged as many hours as I have on this thing.

    Same problem...green light comes on..doesn't do anything. the monitor light comes on only... but the dvd does not spin...so 4 to 5 years must be the limit...I too have had great use out of this...loved it...if it can be saved I sure would like to know how...

I don't think it's dead!! yet. If power indicator is up then there is hope !
U said "the DISC doesn't even SPIN". Which means the player don't know whether there is a disc inside or the optical lens is dead or too drity or the lens cable might be broke.
If u dare, go ahead rip it open. If no screws, then there will be internal locks, U have to find a thin strong plastic or metal piece so u can wedge it from the side and gently open it. But before tht make sure there are no screws.
If u can open it then check for the above stated problems and post back

Power light blinking on sony dvd player


Repair of a portable unit with a power supply problem inside it is likely not to be economical and parts for these units are rarely available.

No magic wand for this issue--unless was a very expensive unit replace it--

When loading a dvd it displays, "NO DISK". Is it


Hello
There are mainly three motors for most of the DVD players. One to spin the disc we insert in, other to load the laser pickup unit to-and-fro inside it to read the disc and an other one to load the tray mechanism 'in-out'. According to your description, the disc spins inside, and you can hear its spin. So motor which spins the disc has no trouble at all I should say. Then comes to the second motor that moves the laser assembly inside it. If it do not work, the laser pickup unit won't move and no reading will take place and 'No Disc' display will be the result. The last chance is with Laser Pickup Unit itself. Just get this unit repaired by any well experienced service technician or by the authorised service center, because, there are special tools to open this unit. As it is a compactable one, more care should be given to it while repairing. Suspect the second motor I described earlier, and the Laser Pickup Unit. OK.

DVD player on Polaroid 1913-TDXB is no longer reading DVDs.


I'm not a Tecnition, but in me experiance with D.V.D. players. I've managed to burn out 6 Players as I tend to go to sleep with the player on and they run all night & after taking an expensive one to a repair shop. His profesional opinion & £35 later (The cost of a fairly good NEW player) He told me plainly It was just worn out & not worth repairing. Apparantly the eye of the player is simalar to a light bulb & has a life expectancy limit, even the more expensive players have a life limit.
So if you've try'd the disc head cleaning kit to no avail, it might be time for a new player. I bought my last player for £2 at a car boot sale, that was Six mth's ago & it's still going strong.
Or you could do the same as me & waist £35 or more to get it repaired & how long will that last?
Not realy tec advice just my experiance with up to now Seven machines, all just plain worn out.
All the best.

DVD Tray won't open


The quickest way I've found is to just remove the upper casing, unscrew the disk holder and take the disk out that way. The disk holder will look like the silver part in this picture http://www.vintagecomputing.com/wp-content/images/nesdvd/nesdvd_03_large.jpg although your could be black or other color.

DVD will not come on


This model of player tends to have its power circuit fail. Unfortunately it would cost more to repair this circuit then replace the whole player.

Sorry I couldn't help you further.

Thanks for reading!

Doesn't do anything now


The CyberHome CH 300 is a good, inexpensive DVD player with a power supply board prone to fail, because of a few weak components, especially if left turned on and not used.
Usually, if the power supply fails, the red light will not illuminate when plugged in, and of course not turn green when turned on.

If you have this specific problem, I can repair the power supply for $20.00. Contact me at FrancisH49@hotmail.com to arrange shipping and return of the repaired board.

Cant play anything on it


I had the same problem, After googling for a few minutes I found the reset procedure for this player.

1. Turn it on.
2. Eject any disk you have in there and close the tray.
3. Hold down the "STOP" button on the player (not remote) until the green light flashes red and the system reboots.
4. Insert disk and enjoy.

This worked for me... mileage may vary.

The unit won't turn on


We have exact same issue. My husband called Coby. They said if the red light is on & won't go green, the system is junk. Can return to the store or them. We are off to buy a new player and it won't be a Coby!
