SOURCE: dvd/vcr recorder/magnavox

I'm on my second Magnavox MWR20V6 recorder in less than a year. I've made close to 1,000 DVDs, mostly dubbing from homemade videos of TV shows, but it's not been easy. They have some finicky quirks that aren't mentioned in the manual.

The second Magnavox I got worked far better than the first, and really has been pretty satisfactory. The first one (which finally just died) never had decent tracking, even when I was copying a video tape I'd made on the same machine to DVD!

I got the error e4 54043e02 on both machines. I'd be using the exact same brand and type of DVD that I'd used for hundreds of other times, but I'd get a new spindle of DVDs and few or none of them could be formatted, and were unusable.

I think the problem might be with the DVDs. I have tried all the brands I could find. I first tried Maxell, as recommended in the manual. They worked fine (both -RW and +RW) until one day they just quit working for me. The worst were the ones that had CPRM printed on the DVDs around the inner hub, but I couldn't find any way to tell (before buying them and opening the package) which disks were this type because the label on the package was identical to the Maxell DVDs that worked. I contacted the company and sent them all the DVD numbers and error codes but they didn't tell me anything. It seems to be some kind of company secret.

Then I tried Memorex DVD+RW 4x and they worked very reliably-- until the last pack I got. I'm getting the e4 54043e02 error again!!! I emailed the company but haven't heard back yet, due to the holiday weekend.

So my big complaint is that I can't find ANY DVDs to use for recording. What I've seen so far on the internet gives me the idea that blank DVDs are kinda junky or unreliable in general, also that it's a VERY good idea to keep those old video tapes, which might end up lasting far longer that DVDs anyway. I'd hoped to get rid of the old VHS tapes due to the storage space needed for them, but it looks like I won't be. Unless I can find good DVDs, I'll just go back to VHS recording.

Incidentally, Memorex gives me the impression that they'll refund my purchase price, while Maxell had no interest in making a refund!!

Also I think the DVD-R give fewer problems, but I use +RW for nearly all my recording because I like to edit them. I'd suggest trying a DVD-R if you get desperate.

SOURCE: DVD Recorder Does Not Record

Yes, I agree. Dust on the lense will create this error as it did on mine. However, to save you a lot of tech fees or difficulty in dismantling the machine, just buy a can of AIR or Duster, etc. Open the DVD slide and "unplug" the unit from the wall. This will leave the door open. Lightly push the carrier back about halfway. Use a flashlight to look into the DVD and find the center area. Place the plastic tube on the air can in this area and blow it clean. Don't scrape or touch any of the mechanisms inside for safety. Plug it in and it should work if it is dust. This of course does mean that it will likely do it again and could use a 'good' cleaning as suggested above. But it is an easy quick fix. And if you are like me, I won't use it again for another six months.

When done the machine turns off automatically, and you turn it onagain. Every time mine has stopped working this has fixed it. This might work with yours as well.

If this doesn't happen with regular DvDs you rent or buy, there may be something wrong with the way you're recording DvDs then.
It could also mean the lens head on your DvD reader is dirty

Record errors


If your dvd player only supports dvd+r discs then that is the only way it will record. It will only record once onto the dvd-rw and, since it doesn't support the re-writables, it won't be able to use this function. This is the most likely reason for the first error. The second problem is a little confusing. Is it when you are trying to record on dvd-rs or dvd-rws that it says it can't record? I hope this post was helpful (for the first error, anyway). Good luck! I hope everything works out! Sincerely, Der Strom

When we record our vcr to dvd rw on our combo the dvd will not play on any other dvd player


You have to go into your tools menu on your dvd recorder and finalize the disk to make it compatible with other players, hope this helps.

Can you record a dvd from vhs on this system ?


No you cannot - This is a DVD *PLAYER* / VCR combo - which means it features a DVD player & VHS recorder in one - you cannot record onto DVD - You can however watch a DVD while recording your tv program on the VCR.

I hope this answers your question.

If you want to convert your VHS to DVD you will need to purchase a standalone DVD recorder - I personally do not reocmmend the DVD recorder / VCR combos - or you can use a HDD/DVD recorder which stores recordings on a hard drive and later you can burn them on DVD, they allow editing, more flexible recording options, etc
