Question about Cyberhome DVR 1600 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

1600 DVR disc don't spin anymore

The unit was acting strange so I took off the outer cover and the metal plate inside that has the white plastic 1 and 1/2 " circular disk with a small metal inner disk that's less then a 1/4" across. This interfaces with the inner black disk that is attached to the gray plate that is just underneath the loading tray. You can feel the magnetic pull as you interface the two together. The problem is nothing spins up. I own a Cyberhome 300 and the mechanism seems almost the same and when you load a disk in, it spins up immediately. Is there any fix or special way the two disk are suppose to interface that will make it spin again? The unit seems to be fine in all other areas, comes on, shows the time, the tray opens etc but simply will not spin up.

The inside light bulb that works when the door opens and food is cooking is burned out, I have the new bulb but don't know where to replace it.


Brand and model would help but I'll guess at this. If micro is a wall hung unit over the range, you usually need to remove the top grill assembly above the door. Then look inside directly above the area where the bulb is located. You should see a metal cover with usually 1 screw in it to remove. Once screw is out that metal plate usually pulls forward and upward to reveal the bulb and socket. Replace bulb and reverse procedure to assemble.
If the micro is a counter top model---the complete outer case usually needs removed if you don't see a small access door by the bulb. Remove all screws around back edge and any screws in the side panels---then lift back edge and pull outer case rearward to remove.

When i put a disk in to my Slim PS2 it says 'reading disk' but then never goes on to the game and just goes back to the main menu. What can i do to fix it?


HI,you’re going to be surprised when you find out how easy this is. Read the instructions all the way through before you attempt the repair just so you’ll be familiar with the entire process. First take off the outer cover of you PS2. If you haven’t done this before, you will have to remove all the screw covers from the bottom of the unit, both plastic and rubber, these will be the only screws you will have to remove in order to take off the outer cover. {mos_sb_discuss:18}
To remove the outer cover, lift up from the rear of the unit and pull towards the front in order to clear the controller jacks and the eject/close buttons. As you remove the outer cover you will notice a small metallic ribbon cable inside the machine leading to the eject/close and reset buttons on the front of the unit, this cable is usually taped to the top of the disc tray. This cable is not a sensitive as it appears; just remove the tape holding the ribbon cable. Once the outer cover is off you need to remove the cover to the disc tray, this will require a rather small phillips screwdriver (I’ve seen a few that use a standard slotted screw). Now that the tray cover is off, the first thing to do is to clean the laser eye. All you will need is a Q-Tip dipped in alcohol. Just swab the eye a few times and allow it to dry on its own, making sure that no lint was left behind from the Q-Tip.

After the cover is off of the disk tray and the laser has been cleaned you will need to plug the unit back in, (The unit needs to be hooked up to a TV as well to test it while you have it open. You should have a DVD, a game disk with a silver or gold back and one with a purple back in order to fine tune the system to play all three.) It will be necessary to have the unit powered up to perform the repair. Press the eject button so that the tray slides forward exposing the undercarriage. At the back of the unit you should see a small white, geared wheel about the size of a quarter. This little bastard is the cause of all your problems.

This wheel changes the angle in which the disk is held. You will notice that there is a small metal tab that holds the wheel in place. Take a felt-tip marker and mark the point on the wheel that meets the tab. That way you will always know the original position that the wheel was in. Now that the orig. position has been marked, feel free to spin the wheel for a few full rotations in order to see how it changes the angle. It will only alter the angle a few degrees before it goes back to zero, after it reaches the maximum angle it will go back to flat after each full rotation. Once you’ve toyed with it to see how it works, put the wheel back to the original position that you have marked. Then advance the wheel about 1/8 of a turn and place the disk tray cover back on top of the disk tray. (You will not need to screw the tray cover back down in order to test the machine; you will only need to hold down the cover with your fingers while trying to load/test a disk) Now place a DVD in the tray and press the eject/close button in order to close the tray and load the DVD (hold down the cover as explained above). Wait to see if the DVD loads, you may have to use the browser in order to load each disk you test. If the DVD loads, eject it and load a silver backed disk, if that loads try a purple backed disk. If all three loaded successfully, congratulations you’re finished. If not, remove the tray cover, eject the disk and advance the wheel another 1/8 turn and repeat the process. It just a matter of finding an angle that will facilitate the operation of all three types of disks. Once you’ve found the proper angle and the system is operating to its full potential, close it up and let’er rip. I also do not recommend placing the PS2 on its side once you have fixed it. Although Sony says they recommend it in the owner manual, I have since seen internal Sony documents retracting the statement and attributing many malfunctions to storing and operating the unit on its side. Keep it flat at all times.

DVD drawer will not open lite on LVC-9016


I had this problem, and found that the cause was that the mechanism that lowers the disk spindle to allow the drawer to open was not strong enough to overcome the magnet that clamps the spindle into position when it it is closed. The following procedure fixed the problem:

Unplug the unit, and remove its outer cover (eight screws, four on the sides and four on the back)

Remove the thin metal cover over the DVD drive (four screws)

There is a round metal cover on the top of the drive. It is glued in place. Carefully pry it loose. Be careful not to bend it.

The spindle clamp assembly is beneath this cover. It consists of a plastic housing and a metal insert that holds a black fabric gasket and a small, donut-shaped magnet. Remove the entire assembly.

The metal insert is held inside the plastic housing by three bayonet-style prongs. Rotate the insert to free it, then remove it.

Remove the black fabric gasket and the magnet from the metal insert.

Here's where it gets a little strange. The problem is that the magnet is too powerful. Estimate its power by placing it on any iron or steel surface and note how much force is required to dislodge it.

In order to reduce its power, hold it over a range burner or torch for a minute or so. (Honestly, this amount of time is a guess. I "overcooked" my magnet to the point that it lost virtually all its power. The repair, however, was still successful.)

Check the magnet's power again by placing it on the same iron or steel object. It should be significantly weaker.

Reassemble the spindle clamp. Drop it back into place in the plastic top cover of the drive. Replace the thin, round metal cover over it. (In my case, the old glue was still good enough to hold it in
place. The spindle clamp will not pop out of the top of the drive- it is held down by gravity and by magnetic attraction to the spindle.)

Plug the unit in and test the drawer opening again. If it still strains but does not open, disassemble the spindle clamp assembly again and "cook" the magnet some more, then reassemble it.

After verifying that the drawer opens normally, replace the metal cover over the drive and the outer cover of the unit.

Code 91 beeps even when my salt readings are 3200 PPM


***This is how you fix the unfixable code 91***

Code 91 is generated by lack of conductivity between plate 1 & plate 3 of the titanium plate set. This can be caused by 3 possibilities.

1. The salt is low - easily tested
2. The Plates are covered with lime scale - easily cleaned with vinegar
3. The one or both of the connections to the plates are corroded and there is
a break in the circuit

I took a meter to my salt cell ( the tube with the plates in it). The outer 2 plates should have continuity with the plug prongs on their respective sides (where the unit plugs in to the control unit) The middle plate is not connected to either plug.
One of my prongs did not have continuity to the plate (thus the cell generated a code 91 - because there was no voltage to detect.

I took a dremel tool and cut a one inch square out of the back of the housing. I then used a round ball bit in the dremel to remove the plastic around the back of the prong. The back of the plug is conneted to the metal tab that is attached to the titanium plate via a 9/32 post and nut. What happens is that water intrudes from the seam in the front of the prong and corrodes the bolt face and the tab surface creating the break in the circuit. I removed the corrosion and applied dielectric grease (used on headlight bulbs and available at the auto parts store) to the back of the nut and the shaft of the bolt and reinstalled. I tested with the ohms/resistance setting of my multimeter and found the circuit complete.
I then applied a covering of epoxy to the post and bolt and replaced the one inch piece of plastic that I removed and epoxied over the area. I sealed the front of the prongs with epoxy- there is a small area where the metal and plastic meet where the water entered. After reinstallation and hooking the machine up it functions perfectly. Intex is sending me a new unit under warranty-- as soon as it arrives I will seal the front of the prongs with some epoxy and store just in case.

How do I replace the battery and where is it located?


Procedure:

Remove battery cover located under the hood on the passenger side in the back. Simply pry the plastic catch in the front, open it like a lid and jiggle it loose and set it aside.
Use the small flat screwdriver to pop up the center peg in the five peripheral fasteners holding down the plastic compartment cover that you just removed the battery cover from. Each of these has a small black plastic circular flat topped center peg inside a larger plastic circular disk which has 4 slots under which you can slide the screwdriver to pop up the center peg. When the peg pops up simply slide the screwdriver under the larger disk to remove the assembly and loosen that site of fixation. When all five fasteners are out you can remove the entire compartment cover.
The battery terminals are removed with the 10mm wrench
The black box in front of the battery can be lifted out of the way by pressing on the plastic catch in the front of the box to loosen it from the metal flange that it is attached to.
The metal battery holder is removed with the 10 mm wrench. The nut is removed and the long bolt is slid out of the holder and then unhooked from it's bottom anchor. Jiggle the metal bar over the top of the battery to unhook the back hook from its bottom anchor. It may be necessary to lift the plastic over the back of the battery gently and lift out the soft clear plastic washer fluid tube from its guides to get at the back hook.
Gently lift the battery out while holding the cables out of the way.

My poloroid tv with dvd player dvd player put dvd in makes noise


This is a very common problem with the 32" TDA-03211C TV/DVD combo unit. Poloroid sent me three replacement DVD units in the first year and each began doing this same thing after a few months (chunking noise and could not load disks). Finally my warranty expired and it failed again. I ended up with two units left after all those exchanges, so I took one apart to see if I could figure out what was going wrong.
In switching the units out one day, I noticed that the forward facing side of the DVD box was getting very warm even when it is not being used. Also, the dvd's felt very warm when ejected from the unit. I also noticed that the metal plate which is behind the picture screen and only about 1/4" from the forward facing side of the DVD box was even warmer (about 110 to 120 degrees F). This heat is distorting the thin metal and plastic parts in the DVD unit, causing the parts not to be in correct contact and alignment (disk won't play and sometimes won't eject).
With the front and top covers removed from the DVD box and the box laying flat on a table (and no dvd in unit of coarse), I pushed downward firmly on the black plastic disk at the top of the drive, and also on the lever arm that is accessible through a hole near the left front of the unit until they bottomed out to bend them down some (the lever arm was warped upwards where it was actually rubbing the top of the case - that was the chunking sound I heard).
I then went to O'Rielly auto parts and bought a 1'x2' sheet of exhaust manifold gasket material for $8. This material is not flamable and will withstand temperatures that would melt this TV into a puddle. I cut the gasket material so that it would fit neatly inside the top cover of the DVD box (metalic side up), then put the top cover and front cover back on the unit. I cut another piece of the gasket material to fit snugly in the space between the forward facing side of the DVD box and the metal plate that is behind the picture screen (metalic side facing picture screen). I then reinstalled the DVD box into the TV. It was a little tighter fit than before, but went in OK and is still removable with some effort.
Both of the previously non-functioning DVD units I have play fine now in the TV. The disks eject perfectly every time now and I notice a significant difference in the temperature of the disks when I eject them. No more strange noises either.
These DVD units are fine and are actually quite well built, but they are just mounted too close to a heat source. A little insulation is all it needs. I cant believe Poloroid's design people can't figure this out.
