Question about Cyberhome DVR 1600 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

CyberHome DVR 1600

I received this for Christmas from my mom so I need to get it working so that I don't have to tell her what a pile of junk she gave me. It worked great at first but now after about 5 minutes of playing any movie it jumps back to the root menu. I opened it up and cleaned it but it didn't make any difference. I looked online for anything about this recorder and can't find a thing. there is no phone number or website listed anywhere on the user manual. Any help would be nice.

Re: CyberHome DVR 1600

Googling the model number produces thousands of hits, so I can't imagine why you didn't find anything.

In any case, most of the problems with this unit are heat-related, due to underated components on the power supply board, and lack of heatsinking.

Keep googling and you'll find your answer.  There's even a detailed photo guide to replacing the caps, but it should have included the heatsink modification, as well.

How is the unit working is it hooked up by a cable,optic,RCA cables,composit,or component, Let me know, You may have to just turn the channel on the television to aux or channel 3 of 4, If that don't help let me know, we can figure something else out once I find out how you are hooked up. Happy Holidays
