Sounds like your power supply. I had the same issue with mine. I researched this model and found out that the power supply was made with, how shall I say this delicately, less than sturdy components. Plus the unit does not have adequete cooling inside. There is a site that repairs the power supplies for a decent price. I was very impressed with the service and site instructions. Check them out.

Its the cords that go to the switch for the power on and off on the back. they are probably lose or even broke like most i come across.

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.

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 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:
