Question about Cyberhome DVR 1600 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Doesn't hold the current date when turned off

I have tried numerous times to record a dvd without success lately. The dvd player date always reverts back to 1/05 when powered off and I thinks this prevents a timed recording. I have unplugged for several hours and reset to no success. I am able to record instantly but time delayed is not responding.

There is a battery on the motherboard, next to the power supply connector, which may be bad or not connected securely.  That's the first place I'd look, although it should produce other symptoms, especially inability to 'remember' other setting, such as channel memory.

After retuning lost access to record / playback on menue and a games button has appeared instead. Have tried turn off/onn and revert back to factory on numerous times without success


Also be sure to include your model number when asking questions, it helps a lot. Always try to check your owners manual to see if there is a reset to factory button or series of buttons to reset device.

I HAVE A PANASONIC DVD,VHS RECORDER MODEL #DMR-EZ48V.WHEN TRANSFER A VHS CASSETTE TO A DVD THE THUMNAILS ON THE DVD HAVE THE DATE OF 1/1/2000. HOW CAN I PUT THE ACTUAL DATE OF THE RECORDINGS ON EACH OF THE...


Try setting the clock on the remote press [FUNCTIONS] go to SETUP menu - locate the CLOCK option (it should be under 'OTHERS' in the setup) and set the current time, press [ENTER/OK] to store if necessary, then press [RETURN] to exit the setup. Once clock is set correctly, future DVD thumbnails will show the actual date/time of recording in this (and similar) model combo units. If auto clock setting is not possible, set it manually as above.

I assume in spite of the wrong date/time, your DVD recordings have been successful. Incorrect clock and date setting usually only affects timer recording for VHS.

If you have lost or misplaced your original owner's manual, you can download a free pdf version (for Region 1 model) from:

http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Video/DVD-Recorders-Players/DVD-Recorders/model.DMR-EZ48VK

or, if you live outside USA, download the 'Australia/NZ' pdf version of the manual (for Region 4 model) from:

http://www.panasonic.com.au/Products/DVD+and+Blu-ray/DVD+-+Players+and+Recorders/DMR-EZ48V/Downloads

either one of these will provide you a full copy of the original user guide/setup including clock.

All free. Hope these suggestions help.

Date keeps resetting to 27.03.2011 I have tried unplugging,changing the date and going back to factory default and reinstalling but nothing seems to correct the problem therefore unable to use timer


Most DVR's don't have back up battery for holding setup data like your Computer. That means that you can never unplug or switch off the power supply completely. The clock runs off the mains supply so any interruption will make it revert back to factory settings.In other words you have to put it in standby mode when not in use to retain recording schedule / clock time etc.

Recording Late


Check your automatic clock setting. If it is on automatic, set it to manual, and set the date and time on the recorder. It may be picking up an unreliable time setting from a station that is not too accurate.

HDD & DVD PLAYER/RECORDER / time date


Hi,
Is there an option To Save Settings, after setting the time-date ?
Most devices usually have a small internal battery or memory chip that stores this information. however there are also devices that when power is removed completely. i.e a power failure or switched off at the mains, time and date settings have to be reset.
Hope this solves your problem.

For the remote to work, make sure "video" is selected (instead of "tv"). It's the little button on the remote under the red button at the top that turns on the TV ("TV/Video")
As for the split screen, I've had that happen numerous times (when I lose power or revert to default settings). YOu have to go to Setup, Display, and select 4:3.
I hope I have helped you. I'm having other problems - with the audio. Some channels have no audio (maybe 3 or 4) and 2 channels are in SPANISH!!! (??) Weird that it's not uniform. I even tried reverting to default settings (and got that split screen!), but didn't help. It "jumped" a few times to the input type screen. I'm thinking some chip got fried or something. I've had it almost 2 years, and guess that's the "built-in" obsolescence!! :-)
Good luck!
