    I have the same problem with Cyberhome CH-DVD 300 DVD in that unit will not turn on with a green light. The light is yellow or red and because the unit will not 'turn on' as indicated by green light none of the buttons work . i cannot get the DVD that is inside of the unit to play (or opent the unit to release it) because of this .

  • fisherchick May 18, 2008

    same exact problem here. you can get your DVD back by opening the door with a screw driver via the 'EMERGENCY' slot on the bottom.

    BUT, it still does not power up. the indicator light just changes color when pressing buttons. How do we get it to turn on?.....

  • loracle Apr 12, 2009

    Could you please explain this fix again SLOWLY and in layman's terms :-). I've found the power supply you mentioned but have no idea what to do with it (or whether I should order it) since the dvd player does NOT come with its own power supply! Please help. Thanks.

  • kirstinQ Apr 17, 2009

    The power light remains yellow whether turned on or off (rather than being red for off and green for on.) No button will turn it on or get it to open the door. Anxious to see if these solutions will/might work!

  • kirstinQ May 11, 2010

    These solutions seem harder than I am up for... thinking this player may have seen it's lifetime and simply get a new one. Think I only spent about $40 on it 4 years ago anyway!

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.

Repaired my Cyberhome 300 DVD by replacing power supply board with small power supply used for external hard drive providing 1.5 amps at 5VDC and 1.5amps at 12VDC. The red wire from DVD is 5 VDC, yellow is 12 VDC. The two black wires are common negative for 5 and 12 volts. Thanks to MARVF55 for the tip!

It's a power supply problem pls change the power supply capacitors like 1000mfd/16v

Posted on Jan 01, 2015

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 unplugged it and now it wont turn on after I plugged it back in to the wall outlet

The exact same thing happened to mine several days ago. I opened mine up, noted that two of the capacitors on the power supply are a bit puffed up, and tested the power supply's 12V and 5V outputs. The 12 Volt output is fine, but the 5 Volt output is only putting out 2 Volts. In short, all of the capacitors on the power supply are made by the same company (Jenpo) and apparently these capacitors were made using the stolen but incomplete formula for manufacturing capacitors much more cheaply. That "capacitor scandal" has cost electronics manufacturers millions. In any event, this would explain why Walmart blew out these Cyberhome CH-DVD 300 players for such a cheap price. Obviously all of the capacitors on the power supply will eventually fail. I have already experienced similar capacitor related problems with a few computer motherboards and other electronics equipment which I bought in the early to mid 2000's. I am contacting Cyberhome to see if they will send me a replacement power supply to go in my CH-DVD 300.

Has a yellow light when plugged in but won't turn on. Won't open

Hi.That kind of dvd players have very small power circuit.And each of component on the board has to work properly .Especially the capacitors on the power board are drying out in the short time.First replace C10 capacitor with exactly the same voltage and farad value.(1500uf/16v for example).Than if you are able to replace more, do it as much as possible .

DVD stopped playing all DVDs

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.

Not sure, but I believe the 2.75 volts you have should be 5.0 volts.
May want to check capacitors on power supply.
The output connector on the supply may also be labeled with
the correct volatges for reference. COnstant orange light may be
indicating the +5v is low.

Red light is barley on

The CyberHome CH 300 is a good, inexpensive DVD player with a power supply board prone to fail, because of a few weak components, especially if left turned on and not used.
Usually, if the power supply fails, the red light will not illuminate when plugged in, and of course not turn green when turned on.

If you have this specific problem, I can repair the power supply for $20.00. Contact me at to arrange shipping and return of the repaired board.
