    You must be looking at the wrong camcorder. I've just taken the cover off that you suggested,, there were three screws not one as you said and you still can't see anything to do with the door. Any more ideas

If you press button and hear a noise, that the latch is jammed and will need to be pried open. If you pry it open it will usually work fine after. It actually helps re-align the doors gear timing when pulled open completely.
If you do not hear a noise, than the motor that release the door has burn out and you will need to pry the door open to get dvd out.

Also you can try turning off camera, press and hold eject button while powering up camera. Keep holding the button. Also make sure the batteries are NEW! Many cameras won't work with even a half dead battery.

    I would remove the screws, remove covers and open manually. May need little flathead screwdriver to lightly pry apart.

    Did it work for you?

    Pry it apart or remove the screws and take out tape that way. The gears timing is off which is a very common problem.

The question is whether or not any noise is heard when attempting to eject the DVD. If no noise is heard, the motor could be jammed and attempting to force or turn any gears could result in the mechanism getting out of alignment. Try removing any batteries and power to force a system reset. If the sensors are sending info to the internal CPU that are contradictory, the unit will freeze. The "hard" reset described above, will reset all of the sensor readings. If the unit continues to fail, please seek an authorized Hitachi service center for assistance. This is not a problem that is likely to resolved remotely.

Good luck and please keep us posted.

A tape won't eject. Try turning off the camera and then turning it on with the eject button pressed down. Remove all power (including lithium batteries) and leave the camera off for 30 seconds. Then reinstall the batteries and turn the camera on with the eject button held down.

found that the cover plate around the flash hot shoe only has a single screw. If you remove it and pull up the cover you gain access to the gear and lock mechanism. Hit eject and if necessary press on the white gears you see in front of the zoom switch. It should then cause the door mechanism to unlock and open.

I have a Hitachi DZ-GX5040E digital camcorder but have misplaced the CD Rom and cannot install on computer. I bought it over a month ago, but have all the reciepts. Is there a download for it, or can I...


http://dvdcam-pc.support.hitachi.ca/asp/Email/EmailRegionSelection.asp

To get the software disc, or an email of the software,you can select your country then look for the camcorder 'email support' link.Then ask your question direct to Hitachi.
You will have to give the serial number as well as the model number of your camcorder.
Your cam is not designed for to transfer by cable direct to a pc.You should record onto a DVD, than you can transfer it from the DVD to your PC.Of course, in your caseyou will have to get back a software disk first! Does not your cam record onto SD memory cards too? Big sizes of those...as big as a DVD are getting much cheaper now.You can transfer easily from one of those, to a pc by using a simple SD/USB adaptor if your pc does not have an SD card reader.The adaptors cost less that £1 in the uk.I guess they are less than US$2 everywhere.They are just a plastic thing with a USB plug on one end, under a cap.The other end has a cap too, and you remove it to slide an SD memory card insided. The it becomes a USB memory stick, and anything on it can be downoaded to a pc.
There's a lot of other useful information linked to the above page, such as DVD camcorder FAQs, user manual downloads etc., but in general, there are so many different Hitachi sites in a country, that the correct one is hard to find. When I seached using your cam model number, it kept coming up as unrecognised, and I just kept trying sites until I found it.Tha letter 'E' on the end of the model number appears to mean European.
Good luck.

When we press the disc eject button the door does not open on the Hitachi DZ-GX5080A camcorder.


it could well be that the tape or the metal / plastic part that prevents the tape door from being opened accidentaly is bent or broken.

if the memory's on the tape are worthwile the effort bring it i to a specialist repairshop, do not try to open it in any other way than described in the manual of your camcorder
