Re: Red light is barley on

The CyberHome CH 300 is a good, inexpensive DVD player with a power supply board prone to fail, because of a few weak components, especially if left turned on and not used.
Usually, if the power supply fails, the red light will not illuminate when plugged in, and of course not turn green when turned on.

If you have this specific problem, I can repair the power supply for $20.00. Contact me at to arrange shipping and return of the repaired board.

Re: Red light is barley on

This is probably a power supply problem. See notes on power supply issues on previous post.

Won't turn on manually


The reason you DVD player wont show turn on a green or red light is simply because there is no power supply entering the player.

This could be as a result of the player being exposed to a very high current and has burnt a capacitor on the power panel.

The best thing is for you to get the appropriate screwdriver,
  1. open the cover of the phone,
  2. get a meter reader and test all the component of the board,
  3. you will discover a part that is burnt,
  4. you will see a power pack that is connected to the main board by a cable or more,
  5. disconnect the cables,
  6. replace the power pack,
  7. couple it back
  8. try to turn it on.
Take care

My CH DVD player is about 10 years old. I can't turn the unit on either with the remote or power button. The indicator light is neither red nor green but yellow. None of the unit's buttons work and I...

Unscrew the casing and take it out from there. By the sounds of it your dvd has bitten the dust so it wont matter much about damaging it anymore than it is already

Sylvania DV220SL8 won't play DVDs, DVD tray won't open

One simple solution is to unplug the unit for 30 seconds then plug it back in. Worked like a charm for me.

Standby light is blinking red will not open dvd or play at all

in a situation like this, there are only a few things you can do.

unplug the unit and wait for an hour or 2, and plug it back up and see what happens. if the unit is making any unusual noises (listen carefuly to it) then it will more than likely need to be repaired.

depending on the price, you might just consider going and picking up a cheap dvd player from wal-mart or something.

Disc is spinning and not reading

what player do you have.
it can be the lazer thats dirty or the main board thats not taking in the info.

open the player.(remove the casing)
switch the player on
open the tray and then close it.(don't put a disc in.)
see if there is a red light shining at the lens.

if you see no red light your lazer is faulty.

if you do see a red light just take a cotton **** en gently rub it over the lens.

please email me at ""

Tray is not opening

To open the tray this is not a perfect fix, but it will allow to use it. After the unit is powered on: 1)Hit the "Open/Close" button 2)Wait a while (you will get the timing down with practice) 3)Tap gently, yet briskly with fingertips at area in the attached pic, that the red arrow points to I think the problem is that the tray becomes unbalanced somehow. Because when a DVD is in, the drive opens fine, only when there is no disc do you have to tap on the unit.

DVD loader mechanism

It is called the slider assy. The slider moves the laser assy back to home or start position. It is a small belt underneath or there is gunk or hair in the gear mechanism. A very common problem with CD/DVD players/recorders. Very good though that you saw it was not comming back to home place. I wish I had a manual to assist you but I do not. Im telling you the most common problems with the slider mechanism. Good Lck
