Question about Cyberhome DVR 1600 DVD Recorder

Cyberhome DVD Recorder

I've had this recorder for a couple of years, but it seems to be acting up as of late. I think I may not have the connections right, as I just bought a new TV. I'm trying to record a DVD to my other DVD player. It says it's recording on the display but when I check, there's nothing on the DVD. When I push the stop button, it says "wait", and then it's locked up and I have to unplug it to unlock it. I can't figure it out. Can someone help, or do I need a new recorder? Thanks, nanz

The reason the FBI was involved, was because you can record copywrited material on these players.... not because they were faulty. These players can also be made to play any region discs. Anyone who knows anything about these two details.... you know what kind of benefits (illegal I might add) these players were made with. The fact that they are shoddy workmanship, is also because they were made to boost sales of Christmas shoppers.... that is why they were only 20-125 bucks new. Usually you get what you pay for... but in this case... if you know how to fix them..... they are a diamond in the rough.

Second the opinion on the power supply caps.  If you are going to dustbin this unit, send it to me.  I'll pay for shipping.  Mine works fine after ps cap upgrade, heatsinking semiconductors on the same board and adding a small fan.

Most of the issues with this unit are heat related, although I agree with the poster who opined that this is an example of shoddy workmanship.

I've been through a few of these Cyberhome units. I get about 4 discs out of them before they crap out. Return them to the store where you bought them (Walmart is one of the few places that cary crap like this). If everybody returns shody mrchandise, distributors will stop selling shoddy merchandise. The average Cyberhome livetime in Canada's norther Climate is about 8hrs of use.

This player is junk, it must be said, i hav 2 of them, if your player/recorder is playing up, and u have a soldering iron, one week point is the capasitors in the power supply, easy to get at, east to replace, there are a few but the main ones are 2200uf 10v there are 2 of this type, change them if the tops look like there blow out, even slightly, thay should be flat on top, but while ya there change all the caps at that end of the power supply. up rate from 10v to 16v or 25v, the uf must be the same rating.

The dvd not having anything on it defintley sounds like it is hooked up wrong but I want to tell you that they have many lawsuits against Cyberhome because there equipment is very faulty. The FBI even seized a lot of their equipment. It could be that your product is finally crapping out like many of ours. So, don't feel bad if you get to the point where you are certain all the cables are plugged in correctly for it may not be you but the acual player itself.

CyberHome DVD 1600 won't record to Sony disk


I believe the recorder is bad, it should be able to accept all brands and types of disks. You might want to try another brand and type of disk just to make sure, if it does not work, the recorder is bad. Good luck to you!

DVD will not recognise discs


I think that moisture has formed on the boards.

The best thing to do is to take the recorder
and put in a warm room,connect it and leave for 2-3 hours.
Then try with a disc again.

I hope i`ve helped!

Recently, i;ve been trying to record tv programs on my Panasonic DVD Video Recorder DMR-E50, as i have done so for many years. However, lately, whenever i program it to record a tv program using the timer...


Hi Leah,

Good description and good job in narrowing down the problem. The lens is the remaining common denominator.

You need to get a CD/DVD lens cleaner. It should have a disk and a bottle of cleaning solution. They are available in the electronics dept of most chain stores.

A couple drops of cleaning solution on the feathery cleaning element attached to the disk, insert the disk into the machine and hit play. Takes just a couple seconds.

Best regards
Mike

Can't record from tv to dvd


I think you would have to run your sat line through the DVR-1600 first (Line In) then connect directly from the DVR to one of your TV Line-Ins (Audio R, Audio-L, S-Cable Video).
And then use the Cyberhome TV Tuner to record off your sat.

Doesn't hold the current date when turned off


There is a battery on the motherboard, next to the power supply connector, which may be bad or not connected securely.  That's the first place I'd look, although it should produce other symptoms, especially inability to 'remember' other setting, such as channel memory.
