I am beginning to think the machine works with slower discs but a firmware update will enable the machine to function with the newer "16x" and other discs. Unfortunately, neither Presidian nor the "real" manufacturer (whose name slipped my mind) seem to currently have the update available on their web sites.

The electronic procedure:
Switch off the unit at the wall plug. On the front panel, hold in the <RECORD> and <EJECT> buttons at the same time, and keeping them held, switch on the power at the wall again. Keep holding the buttons until the disc tray opens.

Unplug your player from the power supply (do not just set it to standby). Leave the player for a few minutes. Plug your player back into the power supply and switch on the machine. This should unblock it.

SOURCE: i can not get timer
E40 means "Some portion has not been recorded because of program overlapping. Recording time did not start at start time."
Don't feel bad or dumb. Virtually everyone (including me) made the same mistake you did. The owner's manual does explain the entire process thoroughly and correctly, on pages 30-31 under TIMER RECORDING.
Using the TIMER button on the remote control permits you to build a list of up to (8) future video programming event(s) you wish to record. You performed that part of the process exactly right. However, you merely failed to place the unit in the STANDBY MODE by pressing the TIMER SET button on the remote control, which is the FINAL step in the process!
Placing the unit in STANDBY MODE effectively powers it down, just as if you'd turned it OFF as you normally do. The difference being, when the unit's in STANDBY MODE it'll automatically turn itself ON, tune to the correct channel and begin recording at the start-time specified, in the entry you made using the TIMER menu. Certainly, it would've been far more intuitive if they'd named the button STANDBY instead of TIMER SET.
If you want to use your DVDR in the meanwhile to view a DVD or VHS movie, just press the TIMER SET button on the remote control again to take it out of STANDBY mode. Just be darn sure to reinsert a BLANK DVD back in the tray and place the unit back in STANDBY MODE again, once you're done.
While overseas products (such as those made in China) are dazzlingly low in cost (due to slave labor wages) we must remember the documentation's written by people whose native language and culture is NOT the same as ours. This becomes painfully apparent upon having to decipher the documentation accompanying such products.
