Re: Cyberhome DVR 1600

It sounds like you have set video output to compost or s-video but you're using component video (or the other way around). You're going to need to try with a component cable, an s-video cable and a composite cable to find out what output the DVR is using. Unfortunately the manual is no longer available to download so I cannot tell you what button on the remote changes the output but if you have the manual still this is what you are looking for. It would be useful to know if you can see the DVR's onscreen display or if you are not getting any video output at all. If there is no display on any output unfortunately this suggests a physical fault, your DVR is essentially a minimal spec PC with a specialist graphics chip, it's not unknown for the graphics chip or it's DV decoder hardware to fail.

Re: Cyberhome DVR 1600

First thing to check is to plug it into a different TV set if you have access to one. If still not working, then suspect the cable or the DVD player/recorder itself. If it works fine on another tv then all depends on which input you have it plugged into on your main set - get the right cables to try plugging it into a different input on the tv (post back with the TV make and model and the details of which input and which cable type you are using if you need help with this). If you have cable or satellite or another DVD/VCR/PC - do they work on the TV? on different inputs. If not then the problem is either the TV or possibly the TV settings. How are you trying to send an e-mail? perhaps with some details we can help. Hope this helps :)

Salutations chuckster197,

It might be rather hard to find parts for Cyberhome products as the company as had to close its doors.

There are a few owners forums out there that are are trying to fill in the gaps. You should be able to put "Cyberhome" or "Cyberhome Forum" in a search engine to find these sites.

I hope this helps.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

How to reset dvd recorder to ntsc from pal

After checking today to see no one offered any suggestions - I solved the problem the hard way - I went into settings and although the screen rolled, I was finally able to click onto the ntsc setting after about a half hour of tries and once I clicked it, my screen returned to normal -- i was then able to enter the code that made the player an all region player and was happily able to play a pal dvd I received recently. The procedure was simple -- offered by a European Cyberhome user -- the company is in bankruptcy so you cannot gt help from them. Note - my Cyberhome dvr is 1500- not 1600 as you listed it.

Start by checking the DVR format compatibility list, see if the dvd format matches. The check DVR settings for playing features that can be adjusted. Try other DVD's that have worked on your DVR previously.

Cyberhome dvr 1600 problem

The power supply needs improvement.The large capacitors need to be replaced with new ones with a 35 o 50 volts rating instead of 10 volts. Also,maybe some diodes and rectifiers in the power supply needs checking.After the improvement the addition of a small fan to keep the power supply cool is reccomended.
Good Luck!
