WHEN I TURN MY DVD PLAYER ON, I GET THE CYBERHOME SCREEN BUT NO MENU. I HIT PLAY AND A SMALL SYMBOL APPEARS IN THE FAR LEFT CORNER THAT HAS A CIRCLE WITH A LINE THROUGH IT. THE DVD DOES NOT PLAY. I DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET THE DVD TO PLAY. CAN ANYONE HELP ME?
I have repaired a couple of these cyberhome dvd players-if you are getting a no disc,it is because of a defective disc table motor or bad flex connector(between lens & circuit board).if your unit is not powering up, you should check the power supply board in the unit(.there are capacitors that go bad) i recomend these checks be made by a tech. rkelecworks.

Had the same problem on my JVC vcr/dvd combo unit.
You need to turn off the timer function. I did this by making sure my remote was in the "VHS" mode...turn the swith from TV to the right (found on the remote in the upper left corner...an then hit the "vcr" button. Then point the remote at the VCR unit and hit the No. 4 button (timer turns off). Your unit should not have the red timer displayed and you should be able to play your tapes okay.
I just bought the CH-DVR 1600
@ Target. This is just a temporary workaround to enable playing of
region 2 DVD disks (don't have other regions but believe it will work
also), until the real regional unlock is available.
1. Insert the region 2 DVD disk and close the tray.
2. Wait for the "Wrong Region" popup to appear in the upper-right corner of your TV screen.
3. The display on your DRV reads "STOP" at this point and the "Wrong Region" popup has disappeared.
4. Press the number "1" button on your DVR remote and a small input popup will appear in the upper-left corner of your screen.
5. Do not press anything else and the DVR will accept this entry as
a chapter # and proceed to this chapter to start playing the movie.
NOTE1: The DVR runs in a somewhat restricted node, e.g. the DVR
display still reads "STOP" and some remote functions do not work, such
as "Menu". The input numbers correspond to the chapters on the DVD
disk, so you can experiment and get to the menu once you hit one of the
extra feature chapters with a "back to the menu" link on it.
NOTE2: I’m anxiously awaiting the real unlock sequence, as I tried most of the old ones posted here, none seemed to work.
also try this -Switch player ON with no disc
in the tray. Close tray and press MENU, 1, and 9 on the remote control.
A menu should appear with the Region Option. Highlight the Region entry
and press ENTER on the remote. Type in the Region you want. (Put 0 for
code free) Press ENTER again to confirm choice. Press OPEN/CLOSE TRAY
button and put in movie.
Dear friend, Try this method to change the region. 1. Switch player on, making sure that there's no disc in the tray. 2. Close
tray. 3. Using the remote control, key in the following: MENU, 1, 9. 4. A
menu will appear with the region option near the bottom of the screen. 5.
Press ENTER, enter the desired region AND PRESS ENTER again to save the desired
region. 6. Next press OPEN / CLOSE.
Reset you player by doing the following: With the player on, hooked properly to your television, and on the correct station: Open the tray Close the tray (with no DVD inserted) Hold the stop button down for a full 5 seconds The CyberHome screen should appear. You should be able to play your dvd's now.

I had a similar problem, and I took the player apart to find that there was a motor that has a snap-in connection to a circuit board and it was just disconnected. It controlled the movement of the reading laser. I could hear it make some noise. I reconnected it and it worked fine.
There are quite a few philips head screws to remove to get into the case. It slides off the back. Once inside, it's very simple looking, it is really un-intimidating. You may have 4 more very small screws to remove directly on top of the DVD tray. If you need to take it off to see under the tray that is.
I'd like to guess the problem is that the motor that ejects the tray is disconnected.
