Problems with Magnavox Mod MWR20V6

My Magnavox DVD/VCR player/recorder has started displaying an error message as follows:

    Error Can not record on this disc.

     E4  54037380

It displays this message no matter what type of disc is in the machine.

Does anyone have any insight on this issue?

Try cleaning the lens with a cotton swab and alcohol.  The first step in a recording is to determine the media type.  If this function fails, the error message you posted will appear.  This can fail for a number of reasons, but most likely either the lens is dirty or the optics are beginning to fail.  How old and how many discs have you recorded?

HI Dan and thanks for the reply.  My machine is less than 2 years old and I've recorded approximately 100 discs.  I clean it regularly with a Phillips DVD lens cleaner that I purchased at the same time I purchased the unit and I also remove the cover and keep the unit dust free.  I use mainly MAXELL DVD-R discs because I've had the best quality recordings with them.  I tried several others but they did not have the reproduction quality of the MAXELL discs.

I will try your advice and let you know how it works.  Thanks again
