I can not put a desired event on recording thru"create timer"scre
I can not put a desired event on a recoring thru "create timer" screen. The only way, how I can record any event is to put recoring by using nual user stop". Also I lost all recorded events from DVR memory. Any solutions, what is going on? I already rebooted the system couple of times. Thanks in advance.

Re: I can not put a desired event on recording...
The receiver hard drive is comparable to a computer hard drive. When a problem is detected with the hard drive, the receiver will give an error message stating a problem has been detected. Depending on the severity of the problem, sometimes it will show that unplugging the receiver for 1 minute will resolve the issue. Other times, a message will state that the hard drives needs to be reformatted, which will erase all content on the hard drive. It sounds like this is what happened to your recordings. If unplugging the receiver did not resolve the issue, we may need to replace the receiver. Please call 1-800-333-3474 and speak to a Technical Support agent.

Hi this is Luke.
DVR Priority settings are used to prioritize timers should there be a conflict
between timers. The top of the list is the highest priority and takes
precedence. The bottom of the list is the lowest priority. A lower priority
timer will not fire if there is a higher priority timer at the same time. Timers
that conflict with each other will display Attention 532. The message may
display when switching from Single User Mode to Dual User Mode because the
receiver recalculates timers for conflicts.
Press DVR three times on the remote (twice for a 942 receiver). The skip
timer icon (red x) designates a conflicting timer.
Select Set Priority.
Select the timer to change.
Use the Up and Down arrow buttons on the remote or the Move Up and Move Down
options on the screen to move the timer priority one at a time. Use the Move to
Top and Move to Last options on the screen to make the timer top or last
Selecting Automatically resolve by
priority will allow the receiver to set the priority level of the timer. The
last timer created will have the lowest priority level and will not be recorded
if both tuners are being used for other higher priority level
Selecting Change the priority of this timer will allow the
customer to set the priority level of the timer. With the new event highlighted
in the Daily Schedule screen (the event will display with the skip icon), press
Select. Select Restore and then Yes. The new timer will now have a higher
priority level than the conflicting timers.
You may also want to resolve the conflict by:
Press Menu on the remote.
Select Daily Schedule.
Arrow over and select the timer that needs to be edited.
The first would be that if your neighbor has Dish Network and they have their TV2 near yours it could be picking up their recording preferences. This would create a recording specific to let's say MONSTER TRUCKS.
The next is if you notice MONSTER TRUCKS when trying to view an intended recording at the beginniong or end of the desired recording. This can occur if the start time an end time for your recordings have been set to begin before your intended recording and end after the intended program completed. You can edit this by pressing the DVR button, my recordings, schedule, timers, pick a recording from the list and press select, now press options and you will see the timer options which will allow you to manipulate the start early time and end late time among other things.
Lastly is that your program guide is out of date or the guide is totally errant. Unplug the receiver from the wall for a minute and repower it. This will force the system to update itself if it is not intefered with during this process. If after this procedure the same issue is occurring and the guide says the program you want recorded but retrurns an unwanted one then the guide is corrupted on the Dish Network side and will be repaired as soon as possible.
Be sure that a DVR timer is set to fire, instead of an auto tune. Also if it is a series then make sure you select new episodes, your dvr will not recor a program if it has already recorded the same program once, ( re run) you can also check your scehdule in your dvr to check if timer has been deleted or modified.
You have a record event set for your VCR. Consult your user manual for specific ways to delete.
Generally, if you still have the remote, you can press the menu button, goto timer / record setup and see what events have already been saved. There may be information on the screen indicating how to delete.
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.
Turn on power to TV, and DVD/VCR, set TV to channel 3 or 4
Insert video cassette
Select desired channel by using CH/TRK
Set the desired recoring speed (SP or EP)
Press REC once
Press STOP to stop recording.
Press Menu and the Main menu will appear.
Use up and down arrows to choose the Timer record menu
Press Select/Enter to go to the Timer Record menu.
Use arrows to choose the program no. (1-8)
Use down arrow to choose Month option
Use arrows to choose the desired month

Cable users: If you have Cable TV and used Cable Box in Connecting Antenna/Cable TV to DVD/VCR using a cable box converter, you must set the channel in this step to match the cable box output channel (usually 3 or 4). Change channels on the cable box instead of the DVD/VCR
