Question about Cyberhome CH-DVD 300 DVD Player

1 Answer

Disc Skips Every time I play a DVD, the disc will skip and the machine makes weird noises. It usually recovers but it will skip a part in the movie. How can I fix this if I can?

    I tried that and now it sounds like when the disc spins it sputters out and the Stop symbol pops up on the screen.

The non-technical answer would be that the lens needs to be cleaned. This is the first step for this type of problem. There are many things that can get the disk drive lens dirty like smoke, incense, dust, moisture. Open the unit and open the DVD cover. You will see the lens that reads a DVD. Get a cotton swab (the ones for cleaning out ears) and some isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and moisten the cotton swab with the alcohol (moisten not soak) and gently (I mean, do not push hard or scrub hard) rub it on the lens. Now with a dry cotton swab, do the same. Let it dry for a minute (longer if the swab had more alcohol and it might have dripped down) and close the unit. Now try to play DVDs and let us know if it worked. Thanks.

I have several old dvd players. They work but either the movie won't load and it says ''no disc'' or they are so sensitive that it skips throughout the movie. Any suggestions? it's not the actual movie...


Correction, it prob is the actual movie when it says "no disc". DVD sub formats have changed so much from when players first came out to today that it is like the difference between windows 95 and windows 7. A lot of the new movies will not play on the older players because it does not reconize the format. On the ones that it skips on, the player thinks it knows the format but doesnt have the compression right. Old players make good paper weights.

Stops Playing: screen freezes


My friend suggested I clean the dvd optical reader lens inside the player with a fine brush (like a camera brush with a blower bulb). This seemed to help immensely. I'm not certain if this is just a temporary fix, but it seems to be ok so far.

Skips or won't play disc if even slightly scratched


Hello opie440,

The optics might be dirty or the pickup assembly might need alignment. In the former case you can get an optics cleaning kit and try to clean the laser LED and pickup assembly. For the latter cause you will need to have thre unit aligned at a TV repair shop.

The best way to get your DVD out of the player will be to open up the unit with a screwdriver. Be careful to make sure you find all the screws and make sure if they are different you note which hole they came from.

If you feel uncomfortable with opening up the unit yourself, take it into a service center.
