DVR 120 Disc/Screen freezes half way through

My dvd R120 gets about 1/2 way into any DVD and then begins to freeze up eventually just stopping completely. The only way to fix the problem is to eject the disc! This seems to happen on all dvds. Any solutions??

Re: DVR 120 Disc/Screen freezes half way through

CD does not run
Clean lens and adjust the disk level
Not spinning disc
If it spins with a little help from yourself replace the spindle motor with improved motor, part number: RXQ0749A
This fault would only occur on c.d play back. The sound would gradually start to distort, until all that could be heard was complete distortion. This fault was intermittent and would occur whenever it felt like
Believe it or not,this fault was cured by replacing the optical unit

The DVR keeps freezing on a frame. When it does,

Usually when a player keeps freezing on a single frame of a dvd, it means that the disc is scratched. When it "sticks", the dvd will usually stop moving (on the part of the disc with a scratch) and the remote will not work. First, look at the dvd and look to see if there is a visible smudge or scratch on the disc. Fingerprints are a common problem with dvds. I suggest you try to clean the dvd in case it is just dirty and if it still doesn't work, some companies make disc repair kits. You could probably find one at walmart or radio shack. These kits repair the scratches in the disc I hope this helps, and good luck! Sincerely, Der Strom

Stops Playing: screen freezes

My friend suggested I clean the dvd optical reader lens inside the player with a fine brush (like a camera brush with a blower bulb). This seemed to help immensely. I'm not certain if this is just a temporary fix, but it seems to be ok so far.

Dvd playback freezes or is choppy

Get a cleaning disk and run it through the machine. Could be a dirty lens on the laser.

My is a Cyberhome is a DVR 1200 DVD player

Try unplugging the unit from its power supply. Wait a few moments and then plug it back in. I have the same unit and that is what I have had to do. I am afraid that we have purchased junk. This machine "works" some of the time. It usually functions well as a player but fails on numerous occasions as a recorder.

CyberHome DVR 1500

The 1500 needs to have a cooling fan installed and possibly the power supply repaired if it has been damaged from overheating to make it work reliably. It's rare but the DVD drive sometimes breaks or wears out. You can test it on a PC with instructins on my website here:
