This seems to be a common problem on DVD recorders.

If a DVD Lens cleaner (with brushes) fails to fix the problem, then it could be that you have
grease particles on the lens. Do the following:

Note. If unit is still under warranty, you may nullify this by opening unit up

You will need:
Screwdrivers as necessary
Cotton Bud sticks (also known as Q-tips)
Isoproponal/Isopropyl Alcohol (small bottle comes with some CD/DVD cleaners)
Compressed Air cannister/aerosol

1. After disconnecting unit, leave standing for 15 minutes
2. Unscrew lid and remove
3. Carefully remove DVD lens cover
4. Blast whole area with compressed air to remove dust
5. Dip one end of cotton bud in Isoproponal, and very carefully wipe DVD lens (just one wipe
should do.)
6. Now wipe lens with dry end of cotton bud, and leave a few seconds to dry
7. Carefully replace DVD lens cover (watch out for ribbon cables)
8. Replace Lid
9. Reconnect, switch on and test

After I'd tried every other way possible, this method finally worked for me!

SOURCE: 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.

Try using old-fashioned 2x DVD-RW discs, eg the cheap ones from Datawrite.
This seems to work in my machine MOST of the time.
