The unit is saying that its an "Un-format disc" problem. Is this the only error code you are getting? Also, what types of DVDs are being used? As in, DVD-R DVD-RW DVD+R DVD-RW and what speeds? 1x 2x 4x 8x 16x?

Record errors


If your dvd player only supports dvd+r discs then that is the only way it will record. It will only record once onto the dvd-rw and, since it doesn't support the re-writables, it won't be able to use this function. This is the most likely reason for the first error. The second problem is a little confusing. Is it when you are trying to record on dvd-rs or dvd-rws that it says it can't record? I hope this post was helpful (for the first error, anyway). Good luck! I hope everything works out! Sincerely, Der Strom

Magnavox H2160MW9A gets E19 and E21 messages burning DVDs


If you have a timer recording scheduled, the "A" version has a software problem when trying to finalize disks. I would return the unit if it is under warranty, especially if it is under warranty.
If it is not, you have several options. Open the unit and make sure that the ribbon connectors are seated firmly. Purchase a replacement DVD writer from Magnavox and install it yourself for about $70. Return it to Magnavox for repair. Get it repaired locally.
I have had excellent luck with the Sony DVD+RW disks that are made in Taiwan. You might want to check the package and determine if they are from Taiwan or elsewhere. If you have a PC that has a DVD writer, check the problem DVD's in the PC.
I think it is your Magnavox, sorry to say.

Won't record on blank disc.


Bulk disc that comes in cylinder case are some time faulty and loses quality because they packed on each other. The lens of the disc are sensitive so if disc is scratch or dirty will get error message "no read". Turn the unit off then unplug ac power cord for more than two minutes then reconnect and try disc again, if issue still exist purchase disc that comes in individual case.

Error code E 4 54040990


I, too, was having this same problem, and as the last respondent suggested, try cleaning the lens. There are a number of kits out there (I got a Philips for about $12 at Walmart) and problem fixed. Works like new. I plan on running the disc on all my dvd players and PCs. Good luck!

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.

Copy Protection Signal


"Copy Protected Signal." Means that the data you are trying to Ahem... "Copy" probably has copy protection inbuilt into the disk & data. This is done to stop copying of pirate DVD's etc. Part of the DRM put out by the TV/Music/Film industry. There are programs that can strip protection and enable one to copy said DVD's.. AnyDVD is one that springs to mind, as does Dameon Tools, and many others simply Google for them.

I have a JVC DR-MH50 DVD/HD recorder and it will only record on DVD-R or DVD-RW not DVD+R or +RW. so check your format of disk you are trying to record on it may be as simple as that.
