    I have a Hitachi DZ-MV350A DVD Camcorder. Like others, the Camera with SD Card works fine, but it doesn't seem to be able to access the DVD Discs. I have Panasonic DVD-RAM, JVC DVD-R, and other discs that used to work, but now do not.
    Service manual does not show anything about the Error Code 2881.
    It has been about a year since I used this last, and all the disc worked then.
    Hitting the Reset Button on the camcorder did not help. My thought would be that the Laser assembly pooped the bed.
    Any ideas?

Solution #6 is the correct one. Many of the Hitachi camcorders don't read DVD-RW. Thanks whoever you are

I am using a Panasonic VDR-M30B and have exactly the same error code when I try to use a DVD-R disc. It says: "Error has occurred. Error code No. 2881. Please read the manual." There is nothing in the manual about error codes. It looks like that both Hitachi and Panasonics are using the same software/firmware but that fact does not solve our problems. DVD-RAM works fine for recording but does not allow reading on computer or TV. I plan to see Panasonic Service in Oslo next week.

The disk is in backwards, Side "A" has to be at the bottom when you insert it to the cam. the part of the disk where the information is written on the cd is towards the screen or left.

Hi Everyone. CODE 2881Above "Fake email123 is right. Also as above its notes the manual has NO codes. So don t waste your time in that direction trying to track a manual. It does say check the manual and the manual says check the manufacturer. Its just in backwards. A simple fix.

its in the camera slot facing outward and not facing into the camera body (left). Look for the word "open" on each of the disk case. Its fragile so gently press by the word open on each side.

The disk case will open. Carefully without touching the disk silver side with fingers that might leave slight oil traces..

Take the disk out and make sue the silver non coloured side is facing into the body of the camera and the side A is at the bottom of the case. And the coloured side is facing the open case comparment door. Flip it and put the disk back in side A at the bottom.

Worked for me. Its just in the envelope
Black plastic case backwards. When you have it out. Take a soft dry cloth and gently clean the disk. Ok

Worked perfectly. No need to take it in to a service drop or call the company. It just somehow was placed backwards. I was probably trying to play with it and put it on my disk drive of my computer. Which didn't work anyway.

I just pulled out my old Hitachi DZ-MV380A I think I bought it in 2004 new. I used it a few times then moved and well life happens.

I was downsizing Konmari and found it in a box of my camera gear. I wanted to film today some snow footage . I am a photographer and also work in TV and Film as an Actor. So other film me. (Supetnatural,iZombi, Diary of a Wimpy kid etc.

This camera is great. Its not junk. Dated yes but if its what you have its great. Use it for you tube, Instagram, fb... etc. Thats it. Now get filming.

Thanks to fakeemail123 for helping. I can view my acting scenes and a trip to Alaska etc etc. I'm just heading out to film, now feeling confident knowing there isn't an issue ir anything wrong i the filming are with the camera. Its perfect now. Just needed the disk put in its black case properly. Yea! Gone filming life In Vancouver BC Canada's most recent snow snow.storm. Feb 12, 2019 :)

Have fun making movies. Enjoy!!!!!

Service told me to take it to the store I bought it at (circuit city) and they could then refer me to a service center for repair to this piece of junk. Can ANY company make something that lasts more than a month or two? I probably take care of my stuff better than anyone I know and the junk ALWAYS fails. Expensive and made poorly in some foreign country no doubt.

I used exactly the same discs from day one. It worked fine until one day and all of a sudden error no.2881. Discs are DVD-R. I'm calling right now.

Posted on May 12, 2007

I had a similiar problem and was unable to locate my owner's manual. I called the Hitachi service number at 1-800-448-2244 and they said it was a disk read error. This model can not read DVD-RW. It can only read DVR-R or DVR-Ram.

Error code 2881


Hi,


Found error in image file, Error Occurred, error 0901, 572, 2881
The camera says found error in image file, repair data now. When you press yes it says "Error occurred. Please replace disc." or use ac adapter/charger, turn off power. It won't let you go to Disc Navigation to finalize it. While recording video on DVD-R media the battery power may have failed and camera shut off. When turned on the message shown on the lcd is Found error in image file, Error Occurred, error 0901.

ERROR 2881


The manual is available online at: http://merchant.satisfusion.com/sf/library/manuals/owners/DZMV350_380A.pdf
This error is a read error-- try buying a cleaning disc and using it, or using a new, fresh disc. Likely the read/write optics are dirty.

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.

I found this problem only when I tried to use a RW disk. The camera will not use a rewritable disk. I reformated the disk in my computer but it still would not work in the camera.
