I guess it will depend on where the timer recording list is kept. Memory or Hard Drive.
These machines often have an internal battery (or capacitor) to keep the date & time correct. Did the date or time need reentering when you turned it back on?
There may be a key sequence to reset this. See Manual.
Can the internal Hard Drive be formatted using the internal software. Basically like formatting a computer Hard Drive
I've had this problem with trying to record on CD-Rs also. DVD and CD recorders can be very fussy. You just have to get a piece of dust or a fingerprint on the CD or DVD that's being recorded onto and it gets kicked back as a check disc or blank disc..
Another problem is some recorders will only accept certain brands. I've had problems recording onto a SONY CD-R with a SONY recorder! So, in summing up, try a different brand or make sure the disc is clean. Sometimes just taking the disc out and putting it back in in a different position will make the recorder think it's an OK disc. Hope this helps.
Your HD is full, I had the same problem, even if you think its empty or it shows empty the "library" record function is recording it to the library. to delete you have to be in dvd mode, not hd mode, press edit, hi-light and delete one at a time. to stop this in the future, just shut off library mode in the setup menu. I had deleted my hd in hd mode and them found out that everything was backed up in my recycly bin from day 1 and had to manually delete in dvd mode even though its not on the dvd, weird. figured it out tonight and I was going to send in for repair tomorrow. hope this helps Dave
Recently started getting the same error message. I thought it was because I was getting to close to full or something that was trying to over fill the discs.
Have tried EP and LP and this just started when I had a disc set to record to the end. I can't even open that one or finalize it. The rest do the same. They are working fine and when the error comes up, ZAP the disc is dead, no access.
I also tried putting the same disc into another Magnavox DVD recorder, still no access. These are both the most reliable recorders I've ever owned and I've had a number.

"e 6 2a031000 can not record on this disc."
I suspect at this point, a batch of cheap Nexxtech DVDs. Also it's possible that it's a heat problem with the recorder?
Once the disc goes into error mode, it's unreadable and all recordings that haven't been written to the TOC become invisible, but that time is forever lost on the DVD.
DVD is visibly (looking at recording surface) FULL but the supposed record time isn't used up. Data error. Discs reporting wrong size. Try a different brand of DVD.
First of all, Don't Record Anything else on this machine! Even though you have "deleted" items, they live on the disc still. However, anything you now record May be written over the files you have come to know and love, and that's why it's Important to try and follow this advice. After that, you can utilize an "undelete" code to restore your titles....accordianman
