Question about Cyberhome DVR 1600 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.
