Question about RCA DRC8052N DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Baddisc Actually, the problem started AFTER I cleaned the disc with the same cleaner I have always used. It still records and plays what I have recorded. Is there a region setting somewhere that I have missed? Will it automatically switch to another region?

No region selection is preset from factory, whats the disc like? any big scrapes? also did you clean disc going from centre to outside in small wipes of about 3cm wide untill youve gone right round? cleaning the disc across will push dust into the grooves

Emerson EWR 20V5


Jan 17, 2009
I posted this Jan 3, 2009 and seem to have a solution.
Similar problem. E4 54037380 Can not record on this disc. Even though it is from the same package of DVD-Rs that I have successfully recorded to previously. Contacted them about 9 months ago without a successful resolution so I am trying again. Unit will play any DVDs, will record and play back DVD-RWs but will not record on my imation DVD-Rs 8X discs that worked fine in the past. Starts to record for a few seconds and then the error message appears (sometimes with slightly different final 4 digits of error number). Other postings have suggested: maybe a firmware update is available (I requested and we will see Emerson's response), trying slower speed discs (I am skeptical since these 8x imation discs in this same package previously worked, and the instructions say 1-16x for DVD-Rs), unplugging the unit for 1/2 hour to reset the unit (did not work), playing the last disc recorded to the end and then trying a new disc (now it recorded for about 30 seconds rather than 10 seconds but then got E4 54043E02 error message, different but still did not work). So I am hoping for something more productive out of Emerson this time.
Update Jan 17,2009. Bought a CD and DVD cleaner disc with the little brushes on it. Cleaned the EWR20V5 per the cleaner instructions and tried to recod on the imation DVD-R 8X that I had used successfully in the past, no luck, same error message. So I bought another brand, maxell DVD-R 4.7GB up to 16X and IT WORKED. The instructions on pg 25 say for DVD-R "up to 16X" may be used but "4X-8X disc is recommended". Go figure, no idea why the 16X worked but they did in this case. So just a suggestion to try other brands. Someone else had suggested that also so I gave it a shot. $8 of new discs and $13 for the cleaner and I've back in business.

Dvd will not record


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try to clean the lens using a CD disc cleaner. Additionally, verify that your blanks are either DVD-R or DVD-RW.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Samsung DVD-VR320 DVD wont record and shows EC0509


Try cleaning the lens. A commercial lens cleaner should do the job, but if not, contact me again, and I'll try to help you clean it manually

No disc displayed


The disc won't spin until the unit recognizes that there is actually a disc there. Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails, try playing a CD. If the CD plays, the optics are starting to fail as reading a DVD requires higher laser power.

Won't read a DVD-video disc.


Yes, and that's actually a bargain...
If it's cleaning - they'll go in and clean the laser, play table assembly, check the alignment and adjust the amplitude. In addition, I would assume a full cleaning interior and exterior. For that same service here we charge $70.00 dollars plus tax and we're the least expensive shop in our area.

Hello, please try to clean the laser unit (OPU). You can use special (wet) cleaning disc obtainable at the market or ask the pro to do it for you. If you need more info please advice.
