Hitachi ax-m71 cd door won't stay closed. Unable

if it opens back up when you close it the drawer mechanism is probably out of alignment. Most players have a slot on the bottom of the drawer that a pin must slide in. Look under the drawer and see if there is a pin sticking up that maybe should be in that slot.

Hi I have a provlem, I have a canon xl1 and when I try to open it to tack the mini dv out but the only thing it opens its the door but the mini dv dose not comes out, if someone have some recommendation it...

You have to have a battery attached in order for the camera to eject the tape, also sometimes if you don't open the door all the way it won't eject the tape either. If it's not that the DV deck may be broken and you could send it in to the company or you could pay a local camera repair company to fix it.

All you need is to connect the DVD into the AUX ports of the TV Use the digital output/optical cable if there is an input If not use the video output to the video input and the audio outputs to the audio inputs.
There is no tuning required but only the selection of the AUX or other input source selected.

Vcr picture is scrambled on our VCR/DVD combo unit.

If you have used the VCR a good bit, the drum may need cleaning. VCRs derived their synchronization from the recorded tape and if the heads are contaminated, the sync signal may not be getting through often enough to stabilize the tracking.
This is not a fun thing to do but I once serviced these and it can be done with care and cure the problem.
You will need cotton swabs and (preferably) some pure alcohol (not rubbing alcohol). Gaining access to the drum requires removal of the housing and perhaps, in a combination unit even more, keeping mind that both of the decks works with astoundingly small signals; relatively low voltage signals and an amazing precision in the mechanisms.
If you can gain access to the drum, do NOT ever touch the shiny surface of it with fingers since the oil on the skin can really screw things up.
You can rotate the drum with a finger on the top of the drum and hold your alcohol wetted swab gently against it while rotating the drum.
If the drum is the cause of the problem, you should see some dark deposits build on the swab. If fibers catch in the opening for the heads, you will have to rotate it in the other direction while holding a tissue gently against the drum; no fibers from anything should remain snagged on the drum, otherwise your efforts will be for nought.
Good luck-
