When you get to the small rectangle hole use a small flat screw driver. you'll see the lever on the door side. put you're screw driver to the front and pry it backwards and it will unlatch.just pressing on it won't do anything.

This is actually straight forward. Turn the lense cover off the front. take the three screws out now exposed that howl the lense barrel on. Don't worry you can't damage anything it's just cosmetic. Slide the barrel off. Just at the back of the barrel infront of the hot shoe you will see a small hole into the top of the camera. If you use a pen or similar device you can press the release lever to open the door manually. Thast right out of teh service manual. Good luck

Solution #7 actually worked for me. It was jammed, I dropped it, it popped right open. Go figure.

It's easy. unscrew the lens from the front. remove the three or four screws holding the lens barrel cover on. underneath this you wil find a hole. using a pen tip you can lever the lock and the door will open. from the service manual.

I was never able to fix it. I am probably going to have to send it in to get fixed. I hope that you have better luck than I did!

Nedaly, Sorry I can't help but I now have the same problem. My grandchild was playing with the camcorder and now the door is jammed. I was wondering if you could tell me what the final fix was. Maybe it could help me get this one open. I don't want to chance forcing something and perhaps break it. 89corvette boltonites@sympatico.ca

The troubleshooting section says: Symptom: Cover will not open Cause and correction: Did you disconnect the batter or AC adapter/charger during removal of disc? Reconnect the batter or AC adapter/charger and then turn the video camera on. Not sure if you've tried this but worth a shot if not. Steve

I just bought the Hitachi DZ-MV550A NTSC camcorder and I cant get it to play on dvd player on the TV Can you please help me Thank you


you need to finalize the disc. With the recorded disc in, hit the "disc navigation" button and you will see a place to hit "finalize". Move cursor to "finalize" and then click "yes". You can only finalize a disc using the AC power source, it will not do it from your battery. You should then be able to play it on your dvd player.

eject the disk and if it it empty just open the cd door. with the lense to the left and the door on the top. look into the device. You will see to the left side a metal platform that houses the dvd laser. take and push the platform all the way to the left. The platform fails to retract once you do this you should be able to use a disk like normal provide you have a dvd-r disk.

The door might be stuck. Try "helping" it open manually after pressing the eject button. Otherwise, something is probably broken and you might have to call a repairman.
