Froze at "Reading"

I turn my dvd player on, it displays it's normal "cyberhome" display then it starts "reading" but there is no disc in the tray to read. It freezes here and I can't do anything, not even open the tray door. I just reset it in the back and turn it off. I deeply appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you so much in advance.

    Thanks Sillygirl, but unfortunately, I can't get the door to open in order to do an upgrade...neither by remote or just pressing the button on the dvd player itself. Same goes for even shutting it off...can't do it by remote nor the power button. I have to turn it off by the ac switch in the back of the player. But thank you so much for trying :)

If you are lucky to have a normality relapse, maybe after resting the DVD recorder for a while, you could try 2 firmware updates found here - http://support.cyberhome.com/support_web.nsf/All_Docs/?SearchView&Query=(DVR%201500)%20AND%20(Downloads%20and%20Updates)&Start=1&Count=10 But theres a 99% chance that you're stuck in the initial setup mode(have you just puirchased it?) - if you wish to skip this setup press- > enter > return > enter - on the remote panel, make sure to press every button only once. If you wish to go through with setting up the date/time etc, then follown the instructions in this addendum to the manual: ftp://209.237.61.78/cyberhome/1500/manual/1500_add.pdf Good luck

    It could be usefull to try the initial setup mode routine again anyway(see what i wrote up there), it might have jogged back to it somehow.

    If I hear of a known manual way to open the tray I'll let you know, but in the meantime you can unscrew the screws, and open it up to look for obstructions.

    Good luck!

    Got it!
    "1. Unplug the player.

    2. Flip the unit upside down. You should see a slot that has an arrow that says emergency hole.

    3. Get a knife or key and put it all the way in the hole and slide towards the direction of the arrow.

    4. The disc tray should open half an inch. Open the disc tray and retrieve your disc.

    5. Flip the unit right side up and plug the unit back in. The disc tray should automatically close. "

    But you should read the following thread as a word of caution -http://www.fixya.com/problems-solutions/...

    Good luck

It won't read disc. After loading, it reads No Disc

Sounds like a read error fault , possibly a laser malfunction sometimes dirt on the lens will cause this try a good CD cleaner if this is no good I suggest a free engineers estimate at least you can then ask again on here how to fix it . My honnest guess is either a duff laser or software corruption . I have known seating of the tray to cause this also not returning fully back into machine , usually caused by children and alien matter ? shall we say such as choclate or M&MS kids shove stuff everywhere ? bless them lol
hope this helps Regards Vortash

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.

DVD appears to not be reading or recognizing discs

Unfortunately your DVD drive mechanism looks to have bit the big one.

You can try taking it apart, removing the top of the drive and cleaning the lense. Work it up and down. Use a q-tip with a little squirt of windex on it.

Reassemble and try it again. If you get the same results, it's time for a new DVD player.

After loading every disc displayes "wrong disc'

are they bootleg dvd's? if not try getting a lense cleaner because wrong disc means it's reading your dvd's as .mov files which only play on quicktime in a computer. if it reads your cleaner as wrong disk too then get yourself a refund cuz it has a motherboard malfunction.
