The cyber home dvd when connected to power, does not glow to red, it remains orange and DVD player is not operational. What should I do. This happened after I used the emergency hole to take out a stuck DVD in the player.

It's probably dead. Had same thing happen to Spectroniq PD-3000 DVD upconverter right out of the box. Spectroniq support gave me warrenty return number. Sent it to them, it got returned undeliverable. Called again confirmed address I sent it to was correct. Resent it. 4 months later, called support, they gave me run around refused to help. Bottom line, don't waste ANY money sending it back to Spectroniq ... just take the hit and toss it.

I have a unit with the same problem on SONY SLV-D261P the entire unit (DVD & VCR & clock). The "progressive" light slowly blinks orange when the unit is plugged in, other than that ...nothing. I've tried the unlpug for a few days & try again now several times to no avail.

Why did you use the hole? did it lock up before? have you tried to unplug it and let it sit for a few days with no power? some of these machines work with gears that are timmed. The different timming points tell the machine what positions the mechanical gears are in. First try and open the door again with the emergncy way you did before. Pull the door all the way out and plug it in and see what it does. See if it comes on and trys to close. If it doesnt work try and close it again ALL the way. It could have somthign in it thats jamming the mechanism.

One usefull thing to try is the reset button that should be on the back of the player(that's where it is on another player I know of). It's likely that your problem started already with the stuck DVD, and that the manual eject wasn't the cause of it. Don't miss on the warranty if still valid. I also found something interesting, this is probably a known problem, and cyberhome is somewhat shirking responsibility... following the directions on the cyberhome support pages site on how to manualy eject a disc, it says "If the unit is an orange or flashing light then you may need to send it in for service. If the unit was purchased after 3 months but within 1 year you will have to pay a fee of $14.95 with proof of purchase. If the unit is past 1 year or no proof of purchase then you will have to pay $34.95. If you are still under the return policy with the retailer you purchased the unit from try returning it for an exchange." which to me means that they expect this to happen often, and that it's a 100% design flaw. So go make some noise, and tell them you know what's going on, and you'll start a website trashing them if they don't fix it free of charge etc etc ;] Good luck, let us know how it turned out, comment back!

SOURCE: Cyberhome CH-DVD 300 DVD - YELLOW light indicator of what problem?

Marlin P Jones & Assoc. Inc.. has a 5V 2.2A /12V 1.5A cord power supply that will fit into the space where the original power supply was! Lists for $6.95 but online price was $2.95. Works great! Connect 12V supply to the yellow lead and the 5V to the red lead of the output connector, black is ground, common to both supplies. Use QC terminals to the power cord input terminals, remove the cable clamp and the power supply will nestle beautifully in the space without need for support. (Remove the old circuit board plastic (3) and rear brass standoffs and use the front brass standoff for the output cable shield ground connection. (Part No. is 15955-PS) I bought two because I have a 2nd Cyberhome CD-DVD 300 which hasn't crapped out yet.

When I try to play a dvd through my sony bravia, it comes in black and white. No matter what I do on resetting the factory specs, it stays black and white

Check and RE-SEAT the VIDEO connections on BOTH the DVD Player output jacks and TV input jacks (re-seating means remove and replug). Poor connections can cause this, especially if using RBG cables. Make sure DVD R (red) is connected the TV R (red), and the same holds true for G (green) and B (blue) jacks & cables. The G & B cables & jacks can look very similar in dim light. Do the same thing even if using HDMI or SVGA cables.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I am trying to install a van radio. When I hook

If it"s an aftermarket radio, orange wires often aren't used, (it's usually for dimming) try it without connecting the orange wire, but be sure not to leave the wire exposed.

Can't play dvd

Maybe your dvd got some capacitors dried on the power supply.
But you can also clean the laser lens maybe is dirty.

Cyberhome dvd ch-300 dvd player

Not sure, but I believe the 2.75 volts you have should be 5.0 volts.
May want to check capacitors on power supply.
The output connector on the supply may also be labeled with
the correct volatges for reference. COnstant orange light may be
indicating the +5v is low.
