Ilo DVDR05 Problem Found

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.

    The power supply is mainly at fault when somthing goes bad with these DVDrs, If,,,,You have been using your dvdr05 for quite awhile and it's been around other electronics and was left on all the time then the heat is taking it's toll on your unit. Once the power supply starts to go bad (which they all will) strange thing will happen like I listed above. This is becuase the power supply is sending too much to too little power to the main board. On the site there's a code that shows what the voltage of each wire should be, You could check this, to see if it's off. if off just a little if won't work right.
    With that said, I havn't seen one yet that has audio channels out. I'm sure it's repairable but not for the average person to try as it intails taking out the main board. Then finding the problem with a Oscilloscope to repair it.
    You should try recording a couple more times, change your audio cables to you INPUTS, You said you heard a sound what it from the dvd tray, or somthing else.

    Hey, I don't know if you still get on Fix Ya! or not but if you do I was trying to check out the links for the Ilo DVD-R, but none of them work anymore, and I was trying to get info on the DVD-R repair.

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 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

ILO +R/RW DVD Recorder, DVDR05 >

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.

ILO DVDR05 DVD Recorder

Same problem and I'm seeing two obviously bad capacitors on the power supply card on mine, a 2200 uf and a 1000 uf. I'm thinking that's the problem, though I haven't tried replacing yet.

Connect ILO DVDR05 to a digital set top box tuner

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.)

ILO DVDR05 makes high pitched squeal during recording

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.
