Try cleaning the lens of the laser. You can try with a CD cleaning disk. You can get these kits at most of the places that sell the DVD players/recorders.

If you want to be more aggressive, open the unit and manually clean the lens. Inspect the mechanical part to see of playable disk is spinning and the laser is trying to read it.

I have seen the lasers go defective in the way that a disk can be played but the unit will not record. The recording part of the lasers sometimes fail. With a DVD laser analyzer the laser strength can be tested. The laser is not low in cost and if it is replaced the proper calibration is required. This would take a properly equipped and trained service technician to do the work. This is an expensive task to change the laser.

If it is not the lens, or the laser, or a mechanical problem this could be an electronics problem on one of the circuit boards. Electronic problems in these devices are not worth having them serviced out of warranty even if the replacement boards can be found. The parts and labour would be sort of expensive in relation to replacing the unit unless it is a very expensive high end model.

If you do run a DVD or CD player with the cover and laser shield removed, take care that there is no chance of any reflected or direct laser light would hit your eyes. The beam is invisible Infrared, and it can easily do permanent eye damage. It is very much more powerful than a toy laser pointer.

Hi Robert
Can you provide some more details about the problem you faces when recording the programs. Normally, it should record without any problem, if all the settings are correct. Just refer its user manual once more, and try. If you can't post a comment here with the problem you faces with recording.

SOURCE: Recording with Converter

stil don't see sense in this. you lose a lot of quality.
Record direct to your recorder or is this TV with build-in receiver or so? You need al compatible digital devices with according stream codecs or be lucky to have RCA jacks out..........

There is a setting I think might be causing this. My mom had this
and we went into the menu and details there is a spot in there that
says 2 hour, 4 hour shut down and we turned it to off. Just a thought. Hope it works.

SOURCE: can a remote tv be enabled to access an digital recorder connected to another tv

The remote must be programmable or have a feature called "Code Search". If the remote doesn't have these features then the answer is you will need to buy a remote like i described above with the ability to operate lots of different devices, they are really cheap for the entry level ones, less than $10.00, but I suggest you spend a little more and buy a higher end model with more ease of use features and the ability to operate more types of functions specific to a DVR or DVD or Blu Ray player.. Please rate my help for Fixya, it helps to show my expertise to others.

I have a Magnavox MRV700VR. I can record on a DVDR, but when I try to record on a DVDRW it tells me "disc error". Why?


It will be either that you have not formatted the disc or that you are using the wrong type of disc. You will need a DVD+RW on a + machine or DVD-RW on a - machine. Most recorders will playback the other type but not record on it.

I just bought a new spindle of DVD+R (Sony) and when I tried to burn a movie from TV/cable on one, it said that I couldn't record on this disc. I thought the disc was bad so I exchanged it with another...


Are you using a stand alone dvdr(not hooked to a computer)? If so some dvd-recorders(mostly older models) May only record either dvd-r or dvd+r. They are two different formats that for all intense and purposes do the same thing. If its an older DVD recorder there may be another problem and that is the recording speed. Check the previous disc that have recorded ok and see what the recording speed was. It will look something like... 2.4X, 4X, 8X. Brand could make a difference but my gut feeling is its the recording speed. Check you owners manual it should list brand name disc as well as the recording speeds to use.

Recording Error, Can not record on this disc, E 4 54040990 Just trying to record from TV on a Memorex DVD+RW. Keep getting this error. Any ideas?


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.

magnavox error message dvd "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.

Magnavox DVD recorder...finalizing problem


The manual isn't too helpful either - "Recording error other than below," it says. There are a couple of possibilities. The Philips/Magnavox/Funai recorders automatically record in VR mode when you use +R discs (there are two possible recording modes - V Mode and VR Mode). Is it possible that you have switched disc types lately? If you are currently using -R discs, switch to +R and vice versa. The manual states that +/-RW discs take a while to initialize.

I couldn't find a full factory reset on that one, so you may have to unplug the unit for about 20 minutes to restore all the defaults.

Another possibility: Finalization requires some extra space on the disc. If you accidentally pressed the button that changes the recording format between SP, EP, LP, etc., you may not be able to fit the same amount of video on the disc that you were able to fit before. You can change the format by pressing the Disc Mode button on the remote - LP Mode will fit 3 hours worth of recordings onto a 2-hr disc and is considered a "medium quality" recording. Try changing the Disc Mode to LP and see if it will finalize the next disc that you record. The downside of this possibility is that the discs that you have already made that are giving you errors are not "fixable" - you will will have to re-record the shows to a new disc in LP mode.

Good luck!

I have an error 25 on my dvd recorder


Technically, E25 is a copy-protection error, but I have some additional background on this issue. On the one hand, it could be a legitimate copy-protection error - you are trying to record from a copy-once or copy-protected source - this is especially true if you are trying to record from a Cable/Satellite Box that has a DVR box - since copying to the DVR is considered the first "copy," the Magnavox will not allow you to make a "second" copy.

On the other hand, Magnavox/Funai players see all programs recorded in V mode (as opposed to VR mode) as "copy-prohibited". It records all +R discs in VR mode automatically, so the solution in this case would be to record on a compatible -R disc (or vice versa).

There are two simple fixes for this issue in either case:
1) If you are using a +R disc, switch to a -R disc. If you are using a -R disc, switch to a +R disc. Simply switching the disc type will "fix" Magnavox recorders (long story).
2) If your TV has a "Video Out" or "Monitor Out" (most TV's don't), you can connect a yellow video cable from the OUT of the TV to the Video IN on the back of the Magnavox. This will permanently resolve your problem by fooling the recorder.

Here is additional info about the type of disc to get:
IDiscs that have been tested and are proven to be compatible with this recorder:
VERBATIM DVD+R 8x, VERBATIM DVD+RW 4x
VERBATIM DVD-R 8x, VERBATIM DVD-RW 2x, MAXELL DVD-R 16x, JVC DVD-RW 4x
IWe strongly recommend for good recording quality:
TDK DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, SONY DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, MAXELL DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, SONY DVD+RW 4x,
MAXELL DVD-R 8x/16x, MAXELL DVD-RW 4x

Good Luck!
