    Cam was new but was cheap ( bought as fault on e-buy ) so with nothing to lose

    Opened the cam back cover and gently put small plastic piece in front of microswitch ( switch makes contact all the time -even if door is really open ) and cam works fine

    Cant see why a door needs a --warning door open switch anyway

This is more likely a mechanical failure - that is a micro switch actuated by opening/closing the cover.
Contact manufacturer support site for a remedy/advice.

I have a hitachi camera model HDC-1291E. When I click for a snap, it is automatically powered off. It happens more when I use camera flash. How to get rid off this?


Try replacing the batteries, it is evident the camera is not getting enough power, especially when you run the flash, this should address the issue.

My hitachi hdc-991e camera turns itself off after i take photos


It's bad/weak batteries. I had the same problem using Hyundai batteries, thought the camera had broken until I used Duracel instead and it worked as it should. Batteries don't last long in digital cameras full stop, but decent brands like Duracel will help.

You probably aren't using high power Triple A batteries. Try using Duracell Ultra high power batteries instead.

HITACHI HDC-531E


I have the same problem. My research suggests that a battery for the Konica Minolta NP-900 may do the trick. The dimensions and configuration look the same as that for the Hitachi HDC-531E.
I've ordered a cheap one from Hong Kong and will let you know whether it works once I've tried it out, Fingures crossed!

Error message: battery cover open. This message appears in the window and will not let me operate camera until problem is resolved. The cover is closed, but the message will not go away. I have re-set...


Hi X,
There's a little piece of plastic on the battery cover, that presses a switch when you slide the cover closed. Check that manually with a tooth pick and the the battery in place. Don't smash it. I have a Olympus FE -280 and it only happens when I put the cheap Chinese battery in.
If you are in the least uncertain, call Customer Service.
Best regards, Paul

Hitachi HDC-530E


can anyone solve the problem on our Hitachi HDC-530E digital camera? We constantly and most annoyingly get only black and white pictures despite re-setting the camera dozens of times.
