Try turning MRC on, and leaving it on, while on HDD w/o any discs loaded. It could well be that the MRC option might not be available to a DVD+RW when it's loaded, and we could learn something new about +RW discs I should add to the MRC help file.
If you turn MRC on, see if you can record and dub to a known good
+RW that's been formatted and used in your 2160A.
If no joy, do an Erase and confirm that that 2160A +RW now becomes recordable/dubbable.
Edit based on your edit: ALL machines have to have MRC on, and left on, except in D.Dub in certain cases per note in the help file.
