DVD ejected before finalizing and now there is nothing???

I accidentally hit eject while trying to turn on the light while recording at night outside. I was devastated when I closed it and then no menu came up. It was as if it was a blank DVD. My husband ejected the next DVD before done finalizing when I told him not to and the same thing happened. Everything I recorded before gone! I am so scared everything is gone. THe first DVD was my son's birth. I can't imagine it's just gone! HELP!!! THanks in advance!

Philips 3360H - can't eject DVD

Try this..turn it off, unplug it for a min or two, then plug it back in. THEN...if the power stays off...hit the eject/open/close button on the panel.

Sometimes this activates the eject mode without turning on the unit. IF NOT, try the remote eject without turning on the unit.

Disc Tray Will Not Eject

Just next to the eject button on the actual recorder there should be a tiny pinhole.  If you use a small paperclip and insert it, then push, you should be able to manually eject the DVD.  Hope this helps!
