Question about Cyberhome DVR 1600 DVD Recorder
I've been having problems to view DVD. The DVR1600 that I have does not recognize any DVD, it reads: "NO DISC". I can't record because every 10 seconds it makes an automatic pause. It's been like 5 months that I have bought this DVD and the first month I did get to record and see what I recorded; but now, I can't. Is there anything I can do to resolve this problem. Thanks Carmen
This is a common and inevitable problem with the Cyberhome 1600. I too had that issue - took the unit apart, checked the laser, cleaned it, adjusted the mount springs etc. It was manufactured by low-end volume manufacturer Protop Innotech to meet a Walmart $99 price spec in 2004, and part of making a unit that cheap was using very bottom end components. The laser diode/tracking mechanism on these units is flawed - check the web and you will notice that almost all owners of this unit have the same issue. The company's US arm was raided and went out of business in 2006 for illegal activity. On the bright side, more reliable units are very cheap now. (buyer in Canada)

It sound like a defective laser, but first try a cleaning. remove the cover find the laser. using a q-tip a rubbing alcohol, dip 1 end into the alcohol & gently rub the laser lens, the using the dry end of the q ipt remove the access by aging gently rubbing the lens. if it still does not work the laser is most likely bad. good luck.
