It sounds like the laser is loosing focus as it gets towards the outer of the disk. Unfortunately without a lot of expensive test gear, there is really not much to be done.
A new DVD player now is so cheap, it probably will not warrant a repair.
Hope that helps.

I have a sumvision/cyclone 1TB media player and up until last week was working perfectly. Now although i can see the films/files when connected to the computer, i can not see it when it is connected to my...

I had a similar problem with a different piece of kit, the answer is go to the options menu of your TV, there you will find the composite settings tweak those while the cyclone is plugged in and your picture will re appear.

It may be too late for you but i had just bought one of these units 1tb version, the problem i found was even though it reads .vob file ( kinda suggests DVD compatibility ) it really only means that, navigation only allows going to a DVD folder and then on to the individual .vob files.

If you know what I am talking about then you will realise it means no DVD title screen navigation! I can tell you I felt ripped off.

Another issue is that many files that played flawlessly on my old ioni media player either played with no picture but sound or sound and no picture, i have read somewhere that this machine is just a large hard drive with a media player attached and not the reverse.

Lastly I wouldn’t advise anyone to buy one because you may think well maybe there will be a firmware update to fix the problems, I downloaded the firmware zip from the maplins site and checked the properties, its was created two years ago, they have done nothing since.

Going to the sumvision website gives you no way of complaining just a link at the bottom of the page to some Chinese website.

Did I mention that although the unit ticks all the boxes for looks but the remote is very cheap and nasty as the GUI in the box.

I got a refund!


I am looking at this to replace it

any thoughts?

Does not play divx/mpeg4 files on dvd disk!!

The player plays strictly DIVX files, but not variants like XVID (which today is more common since divx became not free).
Divx is actually the same than XVID. After spending days converting my files from xvid to divx, realized that changing only the FOURCC code of the files works.
Look for a program named videoinspector. It allows to edit the fourcc for a video file. for all xvid and variants change the fourcc of the files to DIVX. The change takes a second instead hours of conversion, and movies in xvid that used not to play on this device, now will be played without problems.
