Error code E4 54039000 on DVR620KU

I just bought a DVR620KU to dub VHS cassettes onto DVD. I complete the setup menu and dubbing actually begins, lasts for about five seconds, and then up on the screen pops a box with the above error code and the message: "Recording error. Cannot record on this disc."

I've used SONY (supposedly compatible) DVD+RW and DVD+R, several discs of each, and the same thing keeps happening. Tech support person was nice but wasn't able to tell me much except to try some different brands. What should I be looking for? According to the owners manual (page 10) , brands Verbatim, JVC, Maxell, SONY (oh, yeah?) and TDK are "recommended...and proven to be compatible with this unit." Well, maybe not. Can anyone help?

I am experiencing the same error no matter what brand of DVDs I use. I have seen where some have said to use 4X or 8X and that doesnt work either.  Error code: Can not record on this disc E4 54039000.

3/3/2015

I got the same error E 4 54039000 on some of the attempts I tried below.

 

#1 Verbatim DVD-R 6x - - got “ Please eject the disc Playback feature may not be available on this disc --- there  was no corresponding error code “

#2 Memorex DVD-RW 4x - - Playback feature may not be available on this disc (there was no accompanying error number code ) .. . Nonetheless I continue on to press the “REC” button and it displayed this error message “Can not record on this disc E24 ) ( on another attempt the error message was E21 also Can not record on this disc )

#3 Verbatim DVD+R 16x - - “Recording Error   Can not record on this disc E 4 54039000 “

#4 Sony DVD+R   4.7GB 120min 1X-16X - -- same error

#5 Sony DVD+RW 4.7GB 120min 1X-4X – same error

#6 Memorex DVD+R 4.7GB 120min 16X - -- same error

#7 So then I called Toshiba Tech Support but somehow the tech support I was able to talk to (after trial and error of various phone numbers trying to find a live person) does not support DVRs but she took my call and told me to hold on for a while cause she will try to consult with one of their Acclaim Admins. After a few minutes she got back to me and said the Acclaim admin said to only use DVDs up to 4X speed only.

#8 so now tried a DVD with only up to 4X speed which is this TDK DVD+R 4X --- and again got the usual error “Recording Error Can not record on this disc E 4 54039000”

 

I think if I would sum up all the money I’ve spent buying the above blank DVDs ( I just bought small packages of each) it will total up to the same amount I paid for this Toshiba DVR620KU DVD/Video Recorder.

 

This is just a waste of money and Best Buy won't take it back cause its past their 15-day return policy period. This is not fair.
