Re: 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 1600 DVD

What format are you recording in?If the recorder is set for DVD +R, and your playback machine won't read the disc, you may need to record on a DVD-R, or a DVD +-R. Or vice-versa. Some DVDRW discs will record on one machine and won't play on another. The media are incompatible. Another problem - if you are copying a copy-protected disc, it might not play back either. Are you sure you are finalizing the disc? This process takes 4-5 minutes and requires two or three responses sometime.

Disc playing on another computer help

It sounds like you need a firmware update but it may be too late now that Cyberhome is out of business. I suggest you buy a better unit but if you have some unfinalized or unreadable discs you want to try and recover I have instructions on how to do that on a PC that may be of help.

Cyberhome DVR 1200 acting up; won't format new blank dvds; says no disk,etc

Cyberhome has gone out of business in the US. My DVR 1200 stopped working but I was able to repair some capacitors on the power supply to get it going again. You can find more support information about the 1200 and 1600 on these websites: or and search for Cyberhome.

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:
