Disc Error message

I am now encountering Disc Error message after the machine tries to load either a pre-recorded disc or a new, unformatted disc.

The machine shows load....load....load....load, and eventually shows Disc Error.

Can you help? Is this a dirty lens issue - one that I can affect?

Thanks.

Get a CD/DVD laser lens cleaner - the kind with optical quality brushes sticking out of the bottom of the disk. Run this in the player/recorder a couple times. Should clear it up.

You can get them at Best Buy, Radio Shack, online, etc...

Recording Error "Can not record on this disk/E4 54037380


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.
