Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players
Unit displays "no disk" when dvd in inserted. drive does not spin. Is the drive bad, and if so are replacements out there.
Goto the following site: http://www.drx9000repair.netfirms.com/#Cyberhome%20CH%20300 You more than likely have a bad power supply. The caps in the output circuit are pretty crappy and are well known for failure. Good luck! Art

I have the same problem, but I know what the cause is. Mine stopped working right after we had a power failure, so I suspected a power problem. The +5V DC supply from the power supply pcb is only at 3V. I removed the wires for the +5V and patched in a USB cable to provide +5V and it is now working fine. I noticed that one of the capacitors on the power supply pcb is buldging on the top, so it's probably bad. I'm going to try to replace it and see if it fixes the problem. The simple answer is that your power supply pcb is not working correctly.

I have the same problem with the unit saying 'bad disc' or simply getting stuck in 'loading' mode, even for regular movie dvds. My unit is only three years old - I can't believe the reliability is so bad. I have found, however, if I just keep opening and loading it, after 5 or 6 times it will finally work. If you have the patience for this, at least you can watch your movie!

Marlin P Jones & Assoc. Inc.. has a 5V 2.2A /12V 1.5A cord power supply that will fit into the space where the original power supply was! Lists for $6.95 but online price was $2.95. Works great! Connect 12V supply to the yellow lead and the 5V to the red lead of the output connector, black is ground, common to both supplies. Use QC terminals to the power cord input terminals, remove the cable clamp and the power supply will nestle beautifully in the space without need for support. (Remove the old circuit board plastic (3) and rear brass standoffs and use the front brass standoff for the output cable shield ground connection. (Part No. is 15955-PS) I bought two because I have a 2nd Cyberhome CD-DVD 300 which hasn't crapped out yet.
