Question about Cyberhome CH-DVD 300 DVD Player

1 Answer

Bad disc Hi! I have a DVD 300 bought about 2.5 years ago and watched about 10 movies, (don't used it much) either rented in the USA or bought in Belgium. I live in the US but am from Belgium. Now after "loading" for the longest time it says "bad disc" even with brand new one or even with a cleaning disc!! Thank you so much for your help. carissas@gate.net

Try cleaning the lens yourself. Before taking drastic measures as replacing stuff, try cleaning the lens on the DVD/CD Drive. You will need to open the unit and also open the DVD/CD case. Make sure you do this while the unit is unplugged from a power source. Locate the lens that reads a dvd/cd. Now get a cotton swab and moisten it with isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and gently rub the lens clean...use the other dry end of the cotton swab to rub it as well. Try not to use too much alcohol on the swab and not too much force when rubbing. Let it dry for a minute or 2 and screw the unit back into 1 piece. Moisture, cigarette smoke, insence smoke, and dust can cause a barrier between the DVD/CD and the reading lens and by doing this you will either fix the unit or know that it is a problem that will need replacing. Good luck!e lens yourself manually

Don't understand why you didn't take it back and ask for your money back 3 years ago? I suggest you go to an legal advice center and see if you can still do something about it.

It sounds like the lazer or lens could be faulty. However it could be just a bad soldering joint.

-bad disc reports


The problem with using rental discs is that they are dirty. Buy a dvd player cleaning disc and follow the instructions. These discs help to realign the laser. If this does not help try cleaning the disc with a disc cleaner. Also depending on how new the dvd is there have been a lot of discs manufactured outside of the US that have been bad. It may not be your machine but the discs. I personally went through 6 of the same movie before i gave up and rented something else that worked perfectly fine. Hope this helps you watch.

You have the rating set on your DVD player to lower than the rating of the movie you are trying to watch.

Somewhere in your setup menu of your DVD player (press the "setup" button on the remote with disc stopped or no disc) you will find a place to set the parental lock. Either turn it off, if that is an option, or set it to the rating of the movie (or higher) to enable viewing.

'Enter' button not working with DVD's


Hi - had the same thing. Hardware reset fixed the problem. Hold the power button for more than 10 seconds, and everything goes back to normal. And no, it's not in the manuals or on the toshiba web site.
