DVR 1600 Recording and Viewing Problem

I've been having problems to view DVD. The DVR1600 that I have does not recognize any DVD, it reads: "NO DISC". I can't record because every 10 seconds it makes an automatic pause. It's been like 5 months that I have bought this DVD and the first month I did get to record and see what I recorded; but now, I can't. Is there anything I can do to resolve this problem. Thanks Carmen

This is a common and inevitable problem with the Cyberhome 1600. I too had that issue - took the unit apart, checked the laser, cleaned it, adjusted the mount springs etc. It was manufactured by low-end volume manufacturer Protop Innotech to meet a Walmart $99 price spec in 2004, and part of making a unit that cheap was using very bottom end components. The laser diode/tracking mechanism on these units is flawed - check the web and you will notice that almost all owners of this unit have the same issue. The company's US arm was raided and went out of business in 2006 for illegal activity. On the bright side, more reliable units are very cheap now. (buyer in Canada)

It sound like a defective laser, but first try a cleaning. remove the cover find the laser. using a q-tip a rubbing alcohol, dip 1 end into the alcohol & gently rub the laser lens, the using the dry end of the q ipt remove the access by aging gently rubbing the lens. if it still does not work the laser is most likely bad. good luck.

My picture breaks up and I loose sound. usually while viewing something I've recorded on my DVR. is it my tv or the cable? or the channel itself?


If it is only during watching a recording on the DVR then it may be the DVR that is the problem. Does a recording always break up at the same point? If so then the recording itself is bad and this may be due to a poor signal being received. If the breakup occurs randomly then the DVR may not be able to read the data from the recording media (Hard disk or DVD - you did not specify). The obvious first step is to try the DVR on another TV.

What format are you recording in?If the recorder is set for DVD +R, and your playback machine won't read the disc, you may need to record on a DVD-R, or a DVD +-R. Or vice-versa. Some DVDRW discs will record on one machine and won't play on another. The media are incompatible. Another problem - if you are copying a copy-protected disc, it might not play back either. Are you sure you are finalizing the disc? This process takes 4-5 minutes and requires two or three responses sometime.

No disk


Hi. I have this problem with my unit. After a lot of research on the net it apperars that this is caused by problems with the laser pickup. The laser is either dead or is on its way out and doesn't have the strength it needs to read sensitive DVDs but is OK with Audio CDs.

A lot of CyberHome units have this problem due to the poor quality of the laser pickup units they use. I have been told that they have since gone bankrupt. If it is still under warranty then it you may be able to get it repaired but otherwise it may be cheaper to get new unit.

Hope this helps

Start by checking the DVR format compatibility list, see if the dvd format matches. The check DVR settings for playing features that can be adjusted. Try other DVD's that have worked on your DVR previously.
