Question about Canon DC40 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Canon DC40 says "no disk"

All of the sudden it says "no disk" all the time. I have no earthly idea why or what I have done. No matter what disk. After you remove the disk from the camera, I can play it on my DVD drive on my computer but the camcorder will not recognize it. Any ideas?

If it is a camcorder that requires a disc to record then you must install the software the camcorder came with.If you bought it without the software disc,I recommend looking it up. Or you can try putting the recordabble disc in your laptops DVD player.

Disc door won't open. I have tried to remove the battery and power source but the door still isn't opening

I have heard of this only a few months ago, it was the way the camera door can get fouled up by a wonky disk not stopping at the right place.
Try to shoot a few seconds of extra movie, then try to open the door again.
If that does not help press the reset button for 30 seconds to open the door (see handbook) on doing that.
