Question about Cyberhome DVR 1600 DVD Recorder

2 Answers

After Recording and Closing The Title, I get a "No Disk" error message...

Then, if I eject and re-insert the disk, It spins with a little grinding noise and gives me another error message of "Unknown Disk". To this point, I have only tried recording from my saved DVR titles. I'm going to try to record direct from live TV after I submit this entry, and we'll see what happens. I've already burned through at least half a dozen DVD+R disks trying to get this to work. Please help before I throw this DVD Recorder out the window in frustration!!! Thanks in advance

My DVR started making noises and was very slow to start up, it was caused by the rubber ring in the center that grips the disk being dusty. I cleaned with long q-tip and alcohol to fix it. I had to take my Panasonic DVR apart. I can't find a cleaning disk that addresses this slipping problem.

I had this problem frequently over the last year, the one thing I did notice was that if the DVD's I attempted to use were very lightweight or thin, it would not format them. If you can find any of the older, thicker DVDs to record on, it may help. By the way, the ones I had that worked best were DVD+RW purchased at $1.99 for six. They had a heavy orange enamel on the tops. Withstood daily use for nearly a year. Still have some, even though the player needs medical attention now.

Error reading any dvd disks

Have you tried a DVD+/-RW ?

The noises that you are hearing will be the spindle motor trying to spin the DVD as the lifting presentation tray for the read/write head has not located, if the media is not spinning this will never be able to read the lead in on any DVD as it has not presented the disc in the correct place.

If is is out of guarantee then I suggest that you check to see if the DVD is spinning by removing the top cover with the power OFF then eject the tray and try to load the media a small touch of the DVD in the clockwise motion should cause the media to start spinning, this is for diagnosis only if this is the case then the spindle motor will need changing

Have the Samsung DVD-AR650. When I insert a blank

My last recommendation, before seeking a replace or repair; would be to run a cleaner disk. Optical drives can be affected by dust on the optical block lens or dust on the disk itself. Sometimes a dirty lens can even cause your drive to eject the disk when you try to read it. It is recommended you clean your lens every 3 months in an office environment, or once a month if you use the drive in an industrial environment. They range in price from $3 to as high as $130. In such an

Cannot Eject DVD

There will be a manual eject but its slightly tricky. There will be a small hole(about 1mm diameter) near the tray where you insert the DVD. Just insert a samll pin or something into it and keep shoving it in and out by repeatedly pressing the eject button. If its just a stuck DVD then it will come out in a JIFFy. Otherwise send it for repairs as taking the unit apart might void your warranty! Good luck!

Problem dubbing from VHS to DVD

Try different brands of disk, most dvd-r recorder are disk sensitive, buy only one disk per brand, find the brand compatible to your recorder by just inserting the disk and wait for confirmation that it is ready for recording session. I have tried around five brands, sony and maxell as well as verbatim are good dvd-r disk.
