    Hi,

    Tried tapping the housing, didnt make any difference. The access pc light flashes, eject shows, but nothing else happens.

See to be well powered..and it has to have a small hole on the disk's lid ...When you insert a needle or a small size screwdriver inside..it actually unlocks itself..After that see whats wrong with the locking device ...
If it has not such a hole...try to force it out..with a plastic blade...and press eject in the same time..Be gentle ..and it will get out ...
also look to be in the shooting mode..and not in view mode..and actually to have a disk inside...

    take a better look cause all disk (cd /dvd) devices had that manual opening ...

    if you tried both ways to gentle force it ..and /or the manual open...and no luck ..than the only option is to open it and get access to the disk device....It got just a few screws and the rest is on the snap clicks ...and after you get a look ..you will be able to see whats actually wrong ..it may be anything from a piece of candy to a disk inserted by force... at least if you get it out and you have an option for a memory card ..you can use it ..

Disc eject on Hitachi DZ-GX5060E will not work


I've just received mine today from Argos Clearance Bargains (http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/argos-clearancebargains/) and had the same problem. I was already compoisng a strong complaint in my mind. Anyway I tried the reset method. Remove battery; open LCD screen;hold in reset buttona few seconds; reconnect battery; set to "off" and eject .... out popped a very dirty DVD-RW.

When I reinsterted it the problem recurred and I solved it the same way. I have now permenently removed the offending DVD and the cover opens and closes fine. I will buy some fresh DVDs this weekend and see if the problem returns.

Watch this space and also let me know how you get on,

It doesnt work


The disc type is not correct, cd or dvd or blu ray or cdrw. The new disc in not empty for burning or its not empty.
Worst, the laser head is busted, it can't read disc inserted so it ejects thinking it is reading the other side but not.

please vote. thanks.

Cant open up cassette


There are positions on the rotary switch that determine whether you're on the hard-drive or the mini-DVD functions. There's even a small switch (to the lower left of the rotary dial) that keeps you from accidentally switching to the DVD functions.

Make sure you're dial is all the way to the left and reads "DVD". Once you're set on that, the disc eject button should work.

You can get them at Best buy. You must buy the same disc as it is spelled out on the side of the camera. Buy, DVD-RAM/R. There are DVD+ and DVD-, you must be sure to buy just like it's printed on the camera (just under the viewfinder).

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.

Disc Eject won't work after improperly inserting disc and since removing it.


I have an DZ-MV780 with the same problem. I found that the cover plate around the flash hot shoe only has a single screw. If you remove it and pull up the cover you gain access to the gear and lock mechanism. Hit eject and if necessary press on the white gears you see in front of the zoom switch. It should then cause the door mechanism to unlock and open.
