Question about Cyberhome DVR 1600 DVD Recorder
This unit has worked very well until today when suddenly it went completely off.
I have checked the power cord/replaced it but the unit remains completely off (dead) - apart from a pulsating whine whilst the power cord is attached, which then fades off (& goes slower) when the power cord is detached.
I have taken the lid off and checked the internal thermal fuse which is OK
and there is no reset button etc. anywhere. Until it went off it was playing/recording perfectly.
I can not play many of my dvd's on any other machine (even my computer)
as they had not been 'finalized' (but could still play on the dvr 1600).
I hope that there is a solution !
The most likely source is the power board in the unit. If you remove the lid, you will see the power board siting off the side of the DVD tray. Look closely at the board and you will notice 5 cylinder type capacitors that are black with silver tops. If the tops are not exactly flat, but look like they are bulging, then the capacitors need to be changed.
The capacitors are: 10v 2200uf 105-Degree Capacitors.
The symptoms are: the unit will not power up immediatly. If the power is connected and the unit left for a few minutes, it may show the timer after while, and power on, however, it will not work correctly. I have even been able to put in a DVD and it be recognized at first, then fail.
If you need help, email me.

There is a known problem for these devices to fail like this after a period of time. I had the same problem and had to replace some capicitors inside the unit. If you are not up to doing something like this than I will say find an electronic geek who would open the unit for you and check the capacitor s on the powerside unit.
else you may want to contact me to do the repair for email@example.com
