Question about Cyberhome DVR 1600 DVD Recorder
I think a disc got stuck in the machine and there was a hi pitched sound but the sound disappeared. I got the disc out by sticking a pin and pushing it to the left like the underneath of the machine sd to do. I can't get the machine to stay on. what can i do???? i want to tape my mom's favorite movie.
C14 & C20 are in fact 2200uf @ 10VDC. C15 is 1000uf @ 10VDC. After reading these posts, I took a closer look at the ps board, and sure enough C20 top is slightly ballooned out. We'll be replacing all 3 with 16VDC caps shortly. BTW, the high pitched whine is from the power supply because it's a switching supply and creates some HV.
Thanks for the input!

I agree with dave727. DVR1200 fixed as advertised. Replaced C20, c14 and c15 and all is well. Many thanks.

DVR 1200 do use 2200uf 10v as stated newer models go to the 220uf 16v. I do not know if 2200uf10 v and 220 16v are interchangeable, but they both seem to be blowing. I also had to replace th capacitor C15 as well as CV20 and C14. If you look at the top of the capacitor at a 90 degree across the top and they are crowned or mushroomed it means they have blown. and brown goo is a is a good indicator.

Gmikulski's solution above is SPOT ON! I had a Cyberhome DVR1600 that had "NO DISC" problems for a year now ... just saw this post, opened the unit up, and C14 was blown (brown goo out the top). I quickly replaced C14 with a 220uF (note, the cap is 220uF, not 2200uF as listed above) 16V cap and the unit works perfectly now. Awesome!!

Replace c20 and c14 on the power supply board---they are 2200uf caps 10 volts--unit works fine again--

I have had the same problem desribed above for quite a while now. The high pitched sound in my case was not actually coming from the DVD Drive (the sound was present even with no DVD in). Tore open the case and found it was coming from the power supply board. Which makes since in a lot of ways. No obvious spots of burnout on any resistors. With a new power supply board not adding up right in cost next to a brand new unit, I'm going to troubleshoot the broken board I have with a couple electronics instructors. If interested in answer email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll let you know exactly what makes these power supply boards crappy.
