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.

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.

Panasonic ES40v - Can't play DVD's - Incorrect region


I had the same trouble, also wouldn't play back discs that I recorded using it. The commonly listed reset of channel up and down at the same time was not meant for this model.
Below is the official solution that was sent to me by panasonic.
After using this method to reset my player it worked great. it was just like taking it out of the box for the first time.

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your inquiry, reguarding model DMR-ES40V.

Try this reset to fix the issue.

1. Unit power must be on.

2. Press [STOP] & [VHS > DVD] ON THE UNIT for over 5 seconds.

Thank you for contacting Panasonic.

Thank You,
Panasonic Consumer Support

Error message


Hi

This is not an error code!
RF CH21 simply refers to a channel that the recorder is set to and is the first channel it will display. For example, there is no CH20. Your recorder is trying to find stations on all its channels from CH21 through to around CH70 and when it gets to the end if it doesn't find any stations, it starts the process again. This will often happen when you first unpack the unit from new until it has been set up.

Firstly, make sure you have a TV antenna connected, even if you use a satelite receiver. If no antenna is connected, your poor old set will keep on searching until you tell it to stop. Incidentally, connecting an antenna will allow the machine to set the clock automatically too. Next, go into the menu options, this is incredibly easy, just follow the on screen prompt.

Find "Tuning Set Up" and make sure that it is not set to auto. If the recorder still continues to show CH21, you will need to switch the unit off from the power socket and leave it for at least 15 minutes before switching back on. Then repeat the above.

I am almost certain you'll fix this, because it sounds as though the machine is doing what it is supposed to. If it still doesn't work please give me a few more details.
Best wishes.....

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.

Interface error! Trun off the power


Okay...sounds like you have a lot of signal splitting as well as devices that may also weaken your signal. With digital cable, you won't see snow or what would be a dead give-away to a weak signal. Only analog signals do that. Digital signals give you crisp clear picture or they drop out.

Try taking the cable directly from the wall to the DVD-Recorder. If you are able to watch channels and manipulate the device, then you can start from there as the source is good and the recorder is good.

Try to place the DVD-Recorder after the first splitter and see if you still receive stable signal. You'll probably need to leave the unit in this part of your A/V chain.

It really sounds like you need a signal amplifier for all the splitting you've done, or to re-work your A/V stack into something more manageable. It is entirely possible that the built-in tuner of the new DVD-Recorder is not as sensitive as the old unit.

System Error


FYI...the best suggestion I've seen is to hold the channel up and play buttons simutaneously....thereby causing the machine to return to the "factory initialized" state. So far so good for me. We'll see. photog1
