Question about Emerson EWR10D4 DVD Recorder
The fact that the disk is new does not mean much. Often you get recording error, because the recorder 'does not like' the media. Also a new disk, even branded one, may be faulty.
Try again using disks from different brands. Try also both DVD+R (or +RW), and DVD-R (or -RW), this two system have different data error management system and write the track in different ways, even if most recorders are supposed to work well on both, many recorder will work fine in either one of the two formats.
If that does not fix the problem, then recording error is often caused by dirty lens, you can try using a lens cleaner disk, or attempt cleaning lens directly. See the article here (on reading problems, but lens cleaning procedure is the same):My player does not read disks
If the problem is only writing, and happens with all disks, then you may have a more serious electronic problem concerning unit powering the laser, laser assembly , or control assembly. In that case the unit will need testing.
Before cleaning lens I suggest calling Emerson at the number written on the manual and verify warranty status. Often maintenance operation like lens cleaning can affect your warranty.

The problem is likely that you are using 8x/2x media. Though the booklet does not say it, the burner does not support anything above 4x for DVD-R and 1x for DVD-RW. Calling their tech support can (possibly) get an update for this problem. Otherwise, the burner cannot use anything but outdated media.

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.

Heating issue. If you remove the cover and touch the processor chip - you will not be able to keep your finger there for more than a second (that is if your really want to use this crude method to test the temp).
I have taken measurement and its around 50C. Thats a lot for no heatsink or cooling fan.
If you have the unit in a cabinet with no air flow - you will not be able to use this unit for more than 3 months and up to a year. Best to have it on top of a cabinet or in one with an open front and back to allow some airflow - or just anywhere where its in the open.
Samsung has another unit - the AR650, which I believe is discontinued - which for some strange reason has realized this concern. My guess its a whole different team of designers (or at least some folks with some brains) and added a cooling fan into the unit. Its the same exact case and motherboard as the 135, and 155. There are absolutely no issues with it rejecting disc's - even after a year of use for some users.
Solution 1 - Place it in the open
Solution 2 - Remove case and drill holes to the topside
Solution 3 - Remove case and add a fan
Solution 4 - Remove case and add a heatsink over proc (will still need to drill holes over heatsink..
Solution 5 - We can all complain to Samsung and have them recall the units
