You could try a little silicone spray around the threads (might want to wrap the camera in a cloth first).
However, if your camera was not threaded on straight then nothing will help to get it off but patience and persistance.

Error 0280 on Hitachi mv350a DVD camera : It looks the dvd had bad spots that could not be read. After getting frustrated trying to get any info from Hitachi manuals and support, I just decided to try to extract the data directly from the dvd(fujitsu dvd-r disk). Since my DVD was not finalized I could not copy the files directly using Windows Explorer, so I tested several applications and here it's what worked for me: I downloaded isobuster (www.isobuster.com), and I was able to view the tracks on the dvd, then I used the "Extract" option to create an image directly from the faulty dvd and it created a couple of files with the extension .ibq. I checked these ibq files and two of them were huge, so I assumed those were my video data. I renamed these files from *.ibq to *.vob(isobuster has options to extract these "image files", but you need to register it first...), anyways I tried to open these new vob files with PowerDVD and they PLAYED JUST FINE :)! Finally I just used a DVD editor to load the new .vob files and I burnt a new DVD. I hope it will save you guys some time... Mihai from Romania :)
I had the same problem with mine. I contacted Hitachi, and the only solution was to send it to the dealer for repair. I live in Las Vegas and the closest dealer is in Carson, California, so I shipped it. It took about 3 weeks and was quite expensive, but it worked after that. Now I am having the "error code 2881" problem when I try to record with a DVD-RW. According to this website, our camcorder does not support that, it only uses DVR-R or DVR Ram. I am off to the store to buy some, and will let you know if it works.
Good luck Charlie.
I have yet to figure out this same issue 4 years later and still won't open. Can't finalize any of my DVD discs so I can't even watch the DVDs I was able to record before the door jammed shut. Someone told me wolf camera was a great repair shop. I've just not had the time. Anyone with any knowledge of this I'm at yahoo and email is... Rileygurlzmom
