Question about Sylvania Televison & Video
I have a Sylvania HDRV200F that worked fine for over a year. Now I get Recording Error 03-56 when I try to dub from the HDD to DVD. I called Sylvania Customer Service, but they don't have any sort of error message decoder (why give the errors numbers if no one knows what the numbers mean?). They suggested unplugging the device for 45 minutes to an hour (which did not work) or using a disc cleaner (which I haven't tried yet).
I have a feeling the DVD recorder portion of the device is dead.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
Here's a link to this great service

CLEANING THE DISC LENS ? If this unit still does not perform properly although you refer to the relevant sections and to ?TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE? in this Owner?s Manual, the laser optical pickup unit may be dirty.

I live in Ft. Worth, Tx and I have the exact problem. My unit plays both dvd and vhs, but won't record. I get the same error code E4 54037380. I paid over 200 dollars in Jan. 2006 for this unit. After reading your comments, I'm not going to waste my time with their customer service. I wasted alot of dics thinking the dics I bought were bad. Lesson learned, DON'T BUY EMERSON PRODUCTS!!!

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.

You need to go into the set up menu and select recording options. On the recording options menu, scroll down to dubbing options. On the dubbing options menu select either VCR to DVD or DVD to VCR.
Recording and Dubbing are not the exactly the same thing. You use the record buttons to record TV directly to VCR/DVD you use the dubbing buttons and set up to record DVD to VCR or VCR to DVD.
Hope this helps.

From comments posted on the Internet by other Sylvania users with a similar problem, I learned that I had to use a 4X DVD-R (the ones I had been trying to record on were 16X). And I found that Office Depot sells the sometimes hard-to-find 4X format, so that's where I'm headed right after lunch. Thanks.
