Re: stuck on tripod

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.

How can I get a cd to eject - it is stuck ?

Use the attached image. This is also in page 36 of your user manual.
It is ok to apply a bit more pressure to pull the disc.

I just recently upgraded my PC to window's 7. Every time I attach my Hitachi camcorder (model # dz-mv750a) its reads it, but when I got to pull files from it the screen goes black and I have to force...

Try uninstalling the Camcorder's software and reinstalling, that way the drivers and updates needed for Windows 7 are insured on the reinstall.
Hope this works.

Disk error 0280

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 (, 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 :)

Door is stuck

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.

The door might be stuck. Try "helping" it open manually after pressing the eject button. Otherwise, something is probably broken and you might have to call a repairman.

Why should I record my memories on a Hitachi DVD Camcorder?

The picture and sound quality of footage stored on a DVD does not degrade over time. Home movies can be shared with friends and family decades into the future in perfect and pristine condition. Motion video stored on a 8 cm (3 inch) DVD-R disc can be played back on most DVD players and compatible PC DVD drives. After finalizing the DVD-R disc in the camcorder, it can be placed directly into your home DVD player and played back. No additional adapters are necessary and you do not have to connect the camcorder to the television. With DVD, you can instantly access desired scenes without having to endure the time consuming task of fast-forwarding or rewinding. Through Hitachi’s Disc Navigation feature, you simply select the thumbnail image of your favorite scene and it begins to play immediately. 2005 Hitachi DVD Camcorders support four different types of recording media. For motion video you have the option of using a 8 cm (3 inch) DVD-R disc or a 8 cm (3 inch) DVD-RAM disc. Digital still photos can be stored on DVD-RAM discs, Secure Digital cards or MultiMedia Cards. Size Hitachi introduced the world’s first DVD based camcorder three years ago. Since then, Hitachi engineers have been able to perfect the technology and to reduce the physical mass of the camcorder by 45% making it the most portable DVD camcorder in the industry.
