    Hi I have the same problem. It recorded ok on DVD-R for 3 discs but will not record DVD-RW and now will not record anything. The Error Code is E4. I rang the help desk as per the solution given her and they told me to clean it, so I bought a DVD Lens Cleaner. It has made no difference at all.

    I have recorded on couple of DVD-R and now I can not do that anymore. I have been trying to solve this problem for a long time until I came across your website and many others about this problem. VCR is working, DVD can just play and I was not ever able to record from DVD to VCR. But my main issue is that I can not finalise my DVDs and record more... I have got FUNAI dvd-vcr combo DRV-B2737 or 34 (not sure)

    The unit will no longer format DVD-RWs. When I try to format one I get a recording error saying "cannot record on ths disc" error code E4 4037380. The discs are brand new MAXELL as funai recommend, and it is hit and miss with previously recorded RW- discs when the machine was initailly working. It seems to be an inherant fault with the manufacture of this unit as so many people have the same problem and ther seems to be no way of remedying it and I have no answers as yet from funai help email. Can anyone give any advice please
