Question about Cyberhome DVR 1600 DVD Recorder

My dvd player blinks

This morning I was setting my dvd recorder up to record a show and the logo screen was blinking as soon as I put the dvd in to be formated. I took it out and the logo screen continued to blink and I cut the dvd recorder off and the screen was fine. So I know it is something wrong with the dvd. I tried unplugging the dvd but that did not work. Please help

When the dvd/hdd is on it not show any picture on the tv

Do it show its Logo on screen. If it shows the logo, and does not show picture, the fault is with its pick-up lens system. If it do not show the Logo too, the fault is with its main power regulator board [SMPS]. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

Will not play DVD from other regions. Specifically, plays a few but mostly does not play DVD from Australian region. I resdie in Serbia. thansk for any advice or work arounds on this issue. We inherited...

Your dvd is locked to a region code so will only play dvd's for region it was made for.
good news is that you can unlock most dvd players to be region free.


First of all set the command mode of the recorder to "DVD1"
from the menu and from the remote.
After that

1. Press DVD on the remote control
2. Hold MAGIC button (or SET Button) until the led flashes twice.
3. Press 0, 5, 3 and 3 and the led flashes twice.
4. After that the URC can manage the recorder...check it
If not, then use the code search (have a look in the manual of the remote control).
When the rc works, then step over to


1. Hold MAGIC button until the LED blinks twice
2. Now type "994" (then LED blinks again)
3. Press the MAGIC button (shortly)
4. Now type 001891
5. LED blinks twice
6. Repeat steps 1-5 and enter instead of step 4 the codes 002552,000953,002214,000795
7. Put the player on standby (and be sure that there is no DVD inside)
8. Press 1,2,3,4,5 (pause briefly between each button and make sure LED of remote flashes) then the display shows "TIMER OK" and the DVD-Player goes on
9. Press 1,2,3,4,5 (pause briefly between each button and make sure LED of remote flashes) then the display shows "TIMER OK" and the DVD-Player goes off
10. Then it is done. Your DVD-Player/Recorder is Codefree

Sansui VRDVD 4005 Recorder

I've had this problem myself and a list of others. FYI, I've found it easier to use dvd-rw discs
for any mistakes you might make. Use Video mode (not VR mode) if you want to watch them
on a Computer or other DVD again and you have to Finalize disc. As for your problem, if all
else is okay, try removing your disc and unplugging the unit. I've done this numerous times
for odd reasons something wasn't working right. I'm not sure how long you have to keep it
unplugged. Try 10 minutes and you'll have to wait 30 minutes or more if you want the clock
to sync up on its own but you can set the clock manually. I've done this for a blinking
REC light in the VCR mode after trying the TIMER REC button.(it shouldn't be blinking
when the unit's working properly) This gets to be a pain and I've had to do this sometimes
2 days later or 6 months later. It's not a perfect unit. By the way, if times an issue, reset the
clock manually as soon as it starts blinking. This will cut your reset down to 11-12 minutes.
Hope this helps.

Magnovox MWR20V6 will not begin recording when it should.

This is more a work-around than a solution, as the unit is failing to function normally; however, having the identical problem I observed that the unit is failing to power on at 2:00 minutes before beginning recording, a necessary step to record to DVD.

My work-around is the following:

1) Set up the timer, inputting necessary date, time, etc. as normal. With the unit still powered on, start the timed recording mode by pressing timer set, as normal. You will see the red clock icon and the DVD logo iluminate on the VFD.

2) Press the Standby-On power button. This will power the unit on in VCR mode. You should at this time be unable to switch from VCR to DVD mode since the DVD is still in timer mode. LEAVE THE UNIT POWERED ON in this manner. The timer will function and the DVD will record normally.

I have no clue why my unit suddenly forgot how to power up on its own in order to record to DVD. If anyone has an answer for that one please post!

Can i record from tv to dvd

make sure the cables are connected correctly, the manual will show that.
If the mwr20v6 has a tuner you must have the channel on the dvd set to the program, if it has no tuner, you must have your tv set to the correct channel.
