Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I can't eject the DVD disc from my Hitachi DZ-MV230E camcorder


Answers :

If you press button and hear a noise, that the latch is jammed and will need to be pried open. If you pry it open it will usually work fine after. It actually helps re-align the doors gear timing when pulled open completely.
If you do not hear a noise, than the motor that release the door has burn out and you will need to pry the door open to get dvd out.

Also you can try turning off camera, press and hold eject button while powering up camera. Keep holding the button. Also make sure the batteries are NEW! Many cameras won't work with even a half dead battery.
The question is whether or not any noise is heard when attempting to eject the DVD. If no noise is heard, the motor could be jammed and attempting to force or turn any gears could result in the mechanism getting out of alignment. Try removing any batteries and power to force a system reset. If the sensors are sending info to the internal CPU that are contradictory, the unit will freeze. The "hard" reset described above, will reset all of the sensor readings. If the unit continues to fail, please seek an authorized Hitachi service center for assistance. This is not a problem that is likely to resolved remotely.

I have a Panasonic VDR-M50 camcorder. I was attempting to finalize several DVD-R discs and received two different error codes : 0901 and 0280. After receiving the codes, the camcorder locked up and refuses to even correctly access the disks now. I really don't want to lose this data, and Panasonic technical support wants me to send in the camera. However, the camera successfully finalized other discs in between the ones with errors and also still properly records on a new disc. Please help!

We have a Canon DC22 camcorder. The disc shows that there is only 4 minutes of recordable time left (DVD-R), but upon review it does not show our recorded video. We know that there was viewable video earlier because we reviewed the disc yesterday and was able to watch our daughter's recital. We recorded our son's pre-k graduation today but all video has disappeared including our daughter's recital. What is frustrating is that since the disc states that there is only 4 minutes left (60 minute
