Hi everyone, I've been seeing a lot of people having problems with this DVDR. I've taken a look at a few and the components of the power supply are at fault. This poor design leads to many malfunctions like: DVD tray won't open, Squealing or winy noises when turned on, Power won't come on, Screen freezes, Screen turns different colors, DVD NO BURNS, No disc errors, plus more.
I've made a webpage explaining how to fix the power supply your self.
If yours is working get it away from the heat, like other VCRs or Top of TV this little thing can't handle much heat.
Check the capacitors on the power supply board to see if any one has begun to blow-up (the top is pushed up). My unit had 2200uf at c20 position starting to go bad. Unit would keep clock time but push the On button the unit would say Hello but would then not return No Disk but rather lock-up. Hope this helps.

I have a DVDRo4 model so they may not be the same. I connect 3 wire RCA cables to the DVDR output and to TV 3wire RCA input. I set the TV chan to Aux. I set the DVDR souce button to disc. Hope this works on you unit 05
I have my television outputs connected to the inputs on the ILO. I then select that set of inputs with the SOURCE button rather then using the built in tuner. Make sure you connect the Video closest to the audio inputs(or... least confusing, try the three front inputs) Hook antenna to tv
By doing some research, I found that the model you have is a clone of CyberHome 1600MU thankfully. Because the site that maintained manuals for the iLo has been shutdown. Click here for the manual that should work.
Just run your outputs from your cable to the ILO inputs, then your ilo ouputs to the tv inputs. Use Cable remote to control channels, use ILO source button on remote to access the correct input setting on ILO. AND YES< you have to do this EVERY TIME you turn the ILO on to watch tv.. I have mine hooked up this way to record from my convertor box and My husband hates it.(when he just wants to watch tv.)
Usually a problem like this has to do with d.c. power sypply problems. Because "record" uses a different supply voltage and maybe "subcirckit" [not the same dc voltage that you use for playback, etc]
If you know HOW to look inside and if you know how to take voltage\current readings...check ALL capitors,the diodes(misspelled?)Replace any that are "swolened", they are bad
Other then that, take it to tech who if he is a crock he will overcharge, and if he is honest will repair for a fair price.....

iLO DVDR05. iLo is Wal-Mart?s ?store brand?; the DVDR05 is actually the same as a CyberHome DVR 1600
Cyberhome and iLo are up for same, so their website has been taken down with basically a "For Sale" sign in its place.
I hope that helps you a little. I will see if I can find a download of the manual for either of these branded devices.
