Question about Cyberhome CH-DVR1500 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Can't Record DVD's

This unit will play prerecorded DVD's all day long. When I record something onto a DVD+R disc, it stays there as long as the recorder doesn't get turned off. It doesn't seem to want to finalize discs, either. If the unit gets turned off, or the disc is removed and reinserted, it sits there "reading" for a while, then says "bad disc." It often will also begin formatting the disc again. Either way, the recording is gone.

My toshiba dr4su will no longer record on dvd-rw discs nor will it format a blank or prerecorded dvd-rw.Ihave used this recorder successfully for a couple of years. It will play back dvd-rw. When I attempt...


If its an older recorder it could be the usual problem of a greasy center-disc =
95% OF THE TIMES I could fix a problem like this was by cleaning with rubbing alcohol the rubber ring on the little rotating disc in the center of the drive mechanism. !!!! Because users always stick their index finger into the hole of all the CD'S for inserting a disc into the tray that a tiny amount of grease gets deposited onto the little rotation disc which touches the center of any inserted disc at about half an inch from its center hole. (underneath) When its greasy the discs slide and the inserted discs speed stays uneven and slow.
You must open the drivebox ( after unplugging the power-cable) to see and clean it.
Be careful to not look at it with power "on" because the laser will make you go blind (danger!!!!!!!
I heavily use a Toshiba DVD recorder since 12 years and it is my most reliable and most versatile recorder, while my brand new Sony recorder lasted only 2 years - Others as well had problems with finalizing etc. but in general the cleaning of the little center-disc that pushes from underneath against an inserted DVD to make it spin helps the most.

I have a pioneer recorder and i'm trying to turn vhs to dvd... it shows that it's burning and even looks like it on the dvd itself but it won't play anything. do i have it set up right?


You likely won't be able to simply plug the VCR into the DVD recorder and record the tape onto the DVD.DVD recorders require a digital input which was never put onto a VCR due to technology changes and availability when VCR's were made.You absolutely need some kind of software program to send it to your computer,then to a disc.The key is digital input.It simply isn't in a VCR.You cannot even record TV on a DVD recorder unless you have a cable box input or a DVD recorder with a digital tuner to change channels and record from.Unless it is something like home video,you are better off starting all over.If it is something like home video which you want to convert,there may be some certain companies which do it for $ obviously,but I haven't checked for any myself personally so I am not sure about that option.But I have found software at retail stores for perhaps up to $50 which will do that. Good luck,Greg

How do you set up the message for the answering machine? Lost the instructions that came with the unit. I know the phone has a menu, but not sure if this is where I would program the answering machine.


Greeting message
When the unit answers a call, callers
are greeted by a greeting message. You
can record your own greeting message
or use a prerecorded greeting
message.
Recording your greeting
message
You can record your own greeting
message (max. 2 minutes and 30
seconds). If you do not record a
greeting message, a prerecorded
greeting message is used.
1 {MENU}
2 {V}/{^}: “Answering device” i
{OK}
3 {V}/{^}: “Record greeting” i
{OK}
4 After the handset beeps, speak
clearly about 20 cm (8 inches) away
from the microphone.
5 To stop recording, press {OK}.
6 {OFF}
Using a prerecorded greeting
message
If you erase or do not record your own
greeting message, the unit plays a
prerecorded greeting message for
callers and ask them to leave
messages.

Recording onto DVD


That's because the DVD+R and DVD-R discs are actually different, and the recorder is made to record only on the +R media. It will play back discs recorded by other units on -R discs. But you'll need to purchase the +R type. They are the same price.

Hope you've found this helpful. Please take a moment to rate my solution, and thanks for asking here!

Samsung DVD recorder will play but not record blank discs


Had mine into the repair shop. Junk it, processor is toast. Not worth the money to fix. The guy said he wouldn't even touch it.

DVD recorded discs (from VHS) do not play on other dvd players


I called the manufacturer. They admitted to improper instructions. They provided me a fix to their copying protocol and it worked. Also, they game me instructions on how to fix already copied tapes. It works well and I would have to say I was impressed with their customer/technical service.

Try using 8x and lower DVDs and -R ones; try cleaning with CD cleaning disk and then try recording a few min again. If that doesn't help try unplugging and waiting about 30min then put in disk that was previously recorded and go to last item and play it to end (if 2hr long skip to last skip and then play until it finishes) - now try just recording a few min using the manual DVD record button and see if error comes up again - usually this unplugging somehow resets everything. Hope this helps ya'll.
