Plz check your optical lence (laser assembly) when it become weak then it shows like that.
solution:- remove the optical head of the dvd player & replace same one.
thanks

I put in a new disc to record and ( and get "Recording error, can not record on this disc." E 4 54039000. Seems like it doesn' want to format as usual. This just started about a 2 weeks...


E4 error code means that the disc isn't being read, because the unit is dirty or the optical eye is going out .You have to get a cleaning kit and then proceed.

you may try this:
unplug from wall, wait 15 minutes, plug back in, and reset the clock,
or
The disc must be DVD-R with an R4.7 under the logo and they MUST be 4X or 8X specific .... the cannot be 1X - 8X or 1X - 16X or note up to 16X .... the disc box must state 4X or 8X ONLY .... and yes they are hard to find for sure

Lost power while recording a dvd when power came back, i keep getting the "incorrectdisc" error message. I've done the up-channel/play reset/initialization trick several times, but keep getting the...


the "expert's" advice was about as useless as could possibly be- I had already tried all of his suggestions several times before even contacting fixya. what a freaking WASTE of $20.

The only thing left to try is unplug that piece of **** for, oh, say, a month, to let the capacitors discharge completely and hope that the error message goes away. If that doesn't work, the unit is going into the sh*t can.

"No Disc" error message


remove the cover of the unit and try to clean the lens with a soft clean dry cotton swab or if you have a compress air cleaner, just blow it. most of the time cleaning can solved this kind of problem. good luck!

It is pretty common problem.
If all of your DVDs are having same problems,
it is most likely either optical sensor is at fault. The other could be the actual loading mechanism problem.
If the dvd tray(drawer) closes all the way in but the DVD disc never completes the loading(reading) procedures, 1) it could be simply dirty or damaged disc. 2) the optical pickup device (eye) is dirty or just went defective. 3) sometimes the drawer tray that houses the DVD did not complete to engage in disc reading position can produce this result.

I would suggest: first check the position of the drawer and condition(s) of your DVD disc itself.
If the pickup device(optical eye) is dirty or defective, that needs to be serviced by a qualified technician. or contact JVC service center. Their information can be found at

Sansui dvd player wont play and dvd's... shows up as incorrect disc c104 error


Try cleaning the optics with one of those DVD cleaners.
When that probably doesn't work, you can hand clean the optics if you can figure out how to get at them. (easy on some, hard on others) If that doesn't work, it is prbably not worth going any farther

It keeps ejecting the disc and saying disc error


1. Power up unit with no disk in the tray
2. After "no disc" shows on the front display, press PAUSE on the remote
3. Press in order: 1, 4, 7, 2 on the remote (short keypresses). A new screen will show up, EEPROM settings with a green background
4. Write down the EEPROM string for backup/restore purposes in case you screw up. My string was 55 53 00 45 02 55 64 FF (compare with the default string of the 312, which is 55 53 00 45 14 55 64 FF).
5. To enable VCD playback, move the cursor to the "45" (4th group of characters from the left; use the remote up/down arrows to move right/left) and enter "46" or "47" instead, then press ENTER to commit
6. To enable SVCD playback, move the cursor to the "64" field (second from the right) and enter "FE" instead. To enter "F" press "6" on the remote and keep pressed. To enter "E" press "5" on the remote and keep pressed. After you're finished entering "FE" press ENTER on the remote to commit
7. Press PAUSE on the remote to exit the EEPROM screen
8. Power off, then power on again the player
9. It now plays SVCDs and/or VCDs depending on the codes you entered.

The final EEPROM strings with both VCD and SVCD enabled are:
55 53 00 46 02 55 FE FF and
55 53 00 47 02 55 FE FF
(either works)

NB the replacement of 64 by FE was in the past wrongly labeled as Macrovision hack. That's not true. What it really does is enable SVCD playback. If you only do the #5 above, you'll only get VCD playback. If you only do the #6 above, you'll only get SVCD playback. If you do both, you'll get VCD and SVCD playback.

(SVCD playback was especially important to me because I have several hundreds of them - mostly TV shows recorded on my TiVo, then exported to the PC and converted to SVCD)

The other hack for the DVB-312 also works on the 412 (see the configuration screen):
1. press SETUP on the remote
2. Go to "TV Aspect" and move the cursor to "16:9"
3. Press in order: 1, 3, 9, 7, 1, 3, 9 on the remote, then press ENTER

The info showing on that screen for the DVB-412 is:

Model: Zenith ZV8020001
Region: 1
Chip ID: M3355A-B
Servo ver: S101_43180
Microcom ver: V1.50A MP
PROM: 55 53 00 45 02 55 64 FF
Factory reset... done...
(the PROM I listed above is before the VCD/SVCD hack)

I find when my unit gives that same message, if I unplug it for a few hours, the memory resets itself. You may have tried this already, but it does work with my machine. tcast at yahoo.com
