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. http://www.drx9000repair.netfirms.com/

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
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.
you may have fixed your dvr1500 by now but i just came across your signal problem today,so if it is still not working try putting a cable from the yellow video out of your 1500 to tv video in ,switch to this input on your tv and you should get a picture.after this is done set output on 1500 to composite and put into cbl/sat on amp,put hdmi cable from tv into hd out on amp, go to setup input assignment ,click on this to get monitor out,click again you get hdmi mntr flick right to switch on,put your tv to hdmi and you should have a picture.
hope this helped.
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:
and search for Cyberhome.
Cyberhome has a private but public, and helpfull web page to assist you with a Cyberhome DVD player and repairs. Its free and I have found very helpfull in the past. Just go and explore. If you dont find your unit being spoke about, ask a question. Good Luck

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:
