Re: Panasonic DVR-M53 electric Dvd Door Won't Open.

I had a rough time too until I realized that it will only work with a fully charged battery in the unit. Did yours come with the software disc and could you email the files to me? Thanks hope it works for you.

I am facing problem in my Panasonic Camcorder VDR M53 model. It is not sensing any DVD either new or used ones. Can you let me know what can I do to resolve this?

I would try very carefully cleaning the read/write lense with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol. If that does not fix it, you will probably need to have it serviced.

Disc won't eject

I have the same issue. If you gently pull on the dvd door while trying to eject it should open for you. More of a workaround than a fix.

How can I finalize an open disc to view content on disc.


I'm having the same problem that Sandyur is having. There is something on the disc because I can view it on the camcorder. I just can't view it on the pc.

I need a way to hook the camcorder to PC

If you will look at the front of the camera (where the lens is), you will see a gray door that opens. If you will look in there you will find: USB port, AV outlet and external microphone jack.
Hope that help you out...
