    I'm having the same problem. I have cleaned the lens several times but still getting this error. If I am going to have to buy new dvd's to record on every few months then this DVD-RW is gonna cost a fortune in discs. Even getting this message trying to format brand new discs. It's a dual vcr/dvd recorder and if I'd known I was gonna have such problems I'd have stuck with my old vcr and not wasted the money on this great new dvd/vcr recorder.

    i just googled this code and found this.. i have the same error message... i also have no time function.. i set my time, and it stays at what time i set it.. so i can't record anything on a timed basis..
    i have cleaned my lens and it worked for a few more times, but now i finished a 4 hour disc, and when i went to finalize it, this pops up.. i too am wondering if this was a poor made equipment?

If you are trying to record vhs tapes to the dvr side, first you need to get 1x up to 8x DVD-R dvds. You can find them on ebay. The machine has problems recognizing the up to 16x type. Put the blank DVD in and let it load. Then start playing (not dubbing but playing) the videotape for at least 6-8 seconds. If you have somewhat of a lead-in on the videotape you can let it go even 10 seconds. Only after the videotape has been playing for this period of time, press the dubbing button. If the error code does come up, rewind the tape and start again, but in most cases the error code will not happen if you do it like this.

If you are trying to record from a vhs tape to a dvd, first of all you'll need to buy only 1x-8x dvd-r dvds. You can find the 4x or 8x on ebay. This recorder has a problem with the up to 16x. Put the DVD-R in and let it load. Put the videotape in. Press play on the videotape side - not dubbing but play - and let the videotape play for 6-10 seconds and THEN press the dubbing button. If you have somewhat of a lead-in on the videotape you won't lose anything. At most otherwise you'll lose 6-10 seconds. If the error code comes up, rewind the tape, and start again. Letting the videotape run for a bit first before pressing dubbing seems to prevent this problem, at least for me, and I was getting the error code every time.

My BBK DW9937S dead too. But I changed its DVDWriter to NEC5170 (and now I've got an DW9938 because I can burn even DVD-R/RW disks too).
As I mentioned above almost any combo VHS/DVDwriter has the IDE DVDRW inside (I hope you guess how to fix it)

Sylvania DVR9OVF


You have the wrong number model. The model number is not DVR9OVF.... It is DVR9OVE. I have the same problem. I called the 800 number because I buaght a 50 pack of dvd's at Office Depot (Ativa Reg. $29.99 GREAT SALE PRICE FOR $9.99)and it gave me an error "disk is not recordable" E24. They told me this dvd supports a limited dvd disk brand....Maxell, Memorex, TDK, JVC, and Sony, so I am returning them to the store. I know Sony does work because I used those before.
