Try to clean the read laser and the laser pickup, by using a DVD cleaning disk. If this does not work you may have a misaligned laser or pickup.  

That may sound like a canned response and it is, however it is a good start. I would also check the format of the video on the DVD-RW, and make sure the DVD player is set to display that format.  Also might I suggest that you try the documented Disk loading instructions. I know that sounds stupid, but I was working on a customers DVD player one day and I downloaded the manual, and I was shocked to find out that I was not following the recommended loading procedure, once I did that all of the disks worked (stupid? yes, but that's how things are now). 
As I said try to clean the pick-up and laser, check the format of the DVDs, and then follow the recommended loading instructions.

I hope this helps
Thank you,

Error code E 4 54040990


jamesgranger - I think your DVD recorder is still having trouble reading the DVD+RW. It should not have a problem using a DVD+RW many times. Try taking the DVD+RW and put it in your computer. Find it in Explorer, right-click and choose "Erase". Then try to record to it using the DVD recorder again. If it works, you can use this to record, though it might be a pain.

The fact that your machine will record to the +R means that it works. Failing to work (record or erase) on the +RW means it's not reading it well. I would try running the lens cleaner again if it were mine. Also, I would make sure that the unit didn't have a lot of dust in it. If you can, power it off and use some spray-air to be sure there's no dust. You may have cleaned the lens, but if there's a lot of dust inside the unit, it will quickly find it's way back to the lens and you'll have the same problem. Michael

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.

Dvd do not record


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?

Sylvania dvr90vf dvd recorder


Unfortunately without a firmware upgrade the only disks you can use are DVD-R or DVD-RW. The tricky part is that you can ONLY USE 2X speed. Per my conversation with Sylvania there is a firmware update that will allow you to use up to 8x disks, but they are charging $17.00 for it.
