Question about Polaroid DRM-2001G DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

1 Answer

DVR making bad DVDs

DRM-2001G purchased Nov2007. Worked fine. Used a lot. Now, it will not make a DVD that can be played on other DVD players or on this POLAROID. After a few minutes of playing, the picture freezes, jitters, enlarged pixels appear to explode all of the monitor in all kinds of colors:
# HAVE I WORN OUT THE RECORDER?? THE HEADS??
# ANY IDEAS FOR A FIX?

Three suggestions:
1) take it apart and clean the laser and the spindle 'hub' that the DVD rests on
OR
2) get a 'cleaner' disk that will 'whisk' any dust from the laser diode.
OR as a final suggestion
3) replace the DVD recorder with another. Plain old EIDE parallel interface units fit fine.
This is a very friendly machine in that it will accept PC compatible hard disks and DVDR drives.

DRM-2001G weak remote


The range problem with the remote can be fixed by replacing the LED in the remote with a Radio Shack 276-143. The LED is a lot stronger and now the remote works a lot better.

You may also find that the 'receiver' inside the cabinet is pointed at an angle instead of directly towards the 'window'. You can trim the rubber(?) to allow it to point correctly.

Cyberhome DVR 1200 acting up; won't format new blank dvds; says no disk,etc


Cyberhome has gone out of business in the US. My DVR 1200 stopped working but I was able to repair some capacitors on the power supply to get it going again. You can find more support information about the 1200 and 1600 on these websites: http://cms-system.cyberhome-dvd-help.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=14183 or www.nerd-out.com and search for Cyberhome.
