Question about Emerson EWR20V4 DVD Recorder/VCR
I recored one time on a DVD-RW disc, worked fine.I went to formatt the disc to reuse it,seemed to do fine. When i put it back in to record from ( timer recording )it loades the disc then trys to formatt, after about 3sec.it gives me a message: Can not record on this disc.ERROR-E4/54037380.
Records fine with DVD-R disc.
I have tried new disc,different brand disc,unpluging the unit.My son has same model recorder he has no problem recording.I used the same disc he used (new & used)to do a check on my unit, no luck. Can you help?
When I load a DVD-R disk I get the error message Recording Error "Can not record on this disk" at the bottom of the error box is E$ 54037380. I've turned the machine off and unplug it but still the same message comes up when I load a blank disk. I have recorded over 45 events before this started to happen. Please advise.
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.

You have to use a writable disk that is 1 x -2 x . this is a slower speed than most current dvd players use. Try Sony DVD RW . i bought some at walgreens and they worked fine.

CLEANING THE DISC LENS ? If this unit still does not perform properly although you refer to the relevant sections and to ?TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE? in this Owner?s Manual, the laser optical pickup unit may be dirty. Consult your dealer or an Authorized Service Center for inspection and cleaning of the laser optical pickup unit. FROM EWR20V5 OWNERS MANUAL FUNAI-CORP.COM
