    Do you really inserted DVD-R, or it was DVD+R (not compatible by this recorder)?

try and use a laser cleaning disc or manually clean laser after taking cover off then use a wet q tip then use a dry q tip to absorb excess moisture. or pherhaps do a search for firmware update for ur model.

Recording Error "Can not record on this disk/E4 54037380


I had that exact same problem. I would record a bunch of dvds with no problems for months and then some and one day it doesn't work. Only this showed up E4 EA03738B. However I've found the solution. Instead of going out and returning the recorder or buying new dvds just purchase a Laser Lense Cleaner. It's a dvd cleaner. Works like a charm.

Dvd do not record


The unit is saying that its an "Un-format disc" problem. Is this the only error code you are getting? Also, what types of DVDs are being used? As in, DVD-R DVD-RW DVD+R DVD-RW and what speeds? 1x 2x 4x 8x 16x?

Sylvania DVR9OVF


You have the wrong number model. The model number is not DVR9OVF.... It is DVR9OVE. I have the same problem. I called the 800 number because I buaght a 50 pack of dvd's at Office Depot (Ativa Reg. $29.99 GREAT SALE PRICE FOR $9.99)and it gave me an error "disk is not recordable" E24. They told me this dvd supports a limited dvd disk brand....Maxell, Memorex, TDK, JVC, and Sony, so I am returning them to the store. I know Sony does work because I used those before.

DVD recoder not recording


I had this problem with my R120, it first wouldn't record and eventually wouldn't play, just gave either an error message or "wrong disc.' Then, another DVD player I own did the same thing.

What worked? I opened them both up and swabbed the laser lens with alcohol and then the clean end of the cotton swab. Now both work like a charm. I figure that all the dirty rental DVDs lowly drop dust and gunk and over a few months the build-up caused failure.

Just to be safe, I also used canned air to remove from inside the unit, around the circuit board and on the lens.

I'd advise leaving the unit unplugged for a day or more to let any stored energy drain and if you're not familiar with safety procedures, take it to someone who is.
