Question about Hitachi DZ-MV580A DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Disc Eject won't work after improperly inserting disc and since removing it.

I inserted a DVD-R disc improperly and it got stuck. The disc eject button worked for a bit but would not eject the stuck disc. I played around with it, tried to pry it open carefully and it finally ejected the stuck disc. I took out this disc and now the disc eject button will not work at all. I re-set the settings to default along with taking the battery off. I don't know what else to do. Can you help?

    Sort of the same problem. My DVD RAM disc would not read correctly and then the eject button would not work the door. Now the disc is stuck in the camera and can not be accessed. I have tried to take the door off and still can't get it to unhook and open.

    I have the same problem. Discs kept saying "disk access." Kept on blinking and blinking. Finally, disc eject wouldn't work. Also, the camera kept wanting to reformat the DVD-RW disks. I've only used DVD-RW discs in the camera. What's going on? Repair man says a new ejector motor will cost $180 buck. 90 day labor warranty is expired.

I have an DZ-MV780 with the same problem. I found that the cover plate around the flash hot shoe only has a single screw. If you remove it and pull up the cover you gain access to the gear and lock mechanism. Hit eject and if necessary press on the white gears you see in front of the zoom switch. It should then cause the door mechanism to unlock and open.

Take a butter knife (not a steak knife) and push the diskette into the drive the rest of the way, and then eject it.

Cd stuck in E: drive on my HP TouchSmart 300 PC


You will have to manually eject the disc. take a straightened paper clip and find a little hole near the slot where the disc goes in. Insert the paper clip and it should eject the disc. If there is no hole, you may need to access the disc drive by removing the back panel and/or disc drive faceplate.

It will not let me insert a disc and when I press the eject button, it sounds like it is going to eject a disc and then it makes a weird noise for 5 seconds. Then, it will say CLOSE for a bit. I got one...


It sounds like you have 2 disks stuck in there. TV repair shop, or try shaking the dvd player lightly while dvd is trying to open. You may need to help open the door, but too much effort could cause harm.

D V D disc stuck in my computer


So you've pressed the eject button on the DVD Drive and tried it by clicking eject from the windows.
Ok here are the most common problems:
1. The CD was improperly placed and it got stuck in the tray. To solve this you can either open up your DVD rom or you can try this: There should be a very small hole on the tray from where you insert the disk, take a pin or something that goes in and try to shake it so that it settles and then try ejecting.
2. The motor which controls the movement is faulty, you need to change the motor very carefully not damaging any other item on the DVD rom.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to ask me any further.

A dvd is stuck in the drive. It resists all attempts at removal including the ''eject cd'' command in Open Firmware. Can I manually remove it?


The iMac (Slot loading) computer's disc eject mechanism is electrical instead of mechanical. To eject a CD-ROM disc at startup that contains system software, press the mouse button until the computer ejects the disc. If the disc does not contain system software, wait for the iMac to start up and drag the disc icon to the Trash.

If either of these steps fails to eject the disc, push the drive's manual eject button with a small, blunt object like a paper clip. This button is located to the right of the CD/DVD slot as shown in Figure 1. The computer must be turned on to eject a disc in this manner.

Once the disc is ejected, it extends just beyond its center hole so you can remove it from the drive. If the disc fails to eject, while holding in the paper clip, use another CD to gently push against the inserted CD. This gentle pressure may help to release the inserted CD.

Important: After ejecting the disc with the manual eject button, you must restart the iMac in order for the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive to work.
