Nonequilibrium properties of integer channels in nonuniform 2D electron (hole) systems in presence of strong magnetic field are discussed. The results of this consideration are used for the qualitative explanation of Corbino disk current-voltage characteristics (IVC) un-der quantum Hall effect (QHE) condition. This effect with varying details is confidently observed in Hall bar and Corbino geometries of the used cells. Especially evident “breakdown of the QHE” in the Corbino samples, allowing an explanation of a number of features.
