SMASH IT INTO 100 00000 LITTLE BITS AND WRITE A NICE LETTER TO THE PEOPLE AT "SHITACHI" and let them know what you think of there product and on line service.

I must say this is the worst DVD cam I have ever used.

I just bought the Hitachi DZ-MV550A NTSC camcorder and I cant get it to play on dvd player on the TV Can you please help me Thank you

you need to finalize the disc. With the recorded disc in, hit the "disc navigation" button and you will see a place to hit "finalize". Move cursor to "finalize" and then click "yes". You can only finalize a disc using the AC power source, it will not do it from your battery. You should then be able to play it on your dvd player.

Where to find a charger for my hitachi dz-mv550a video camera.

Go to the Hitachi website and you will be able to buy the accessories. I should think that you will be able to obtain your charger from there.

eject the disk and if it it empty just open the cd door. with the lense to the left and the door on the top. look into the device. You will see to the left side a metal platform that houses the dvd laser. take and push the platform all the way to the left. The platform fails to retract once you do this you should be able to use a disk like normal provide you have a dvd-r disk.
