Question about Digital Cameras

4 Answers

My DZ-MV730E is malfunctioning. I have TDK DVD-R 1-2x 1.4gb disc in. Took several short vidios in succession then screen said RUN DISC REPAIR. I did not have DC power cord to run disc repair so decided to eject disc and repair it later. PROBLEM: The camera does not eject disc. I put charged battery on, press disc eject button, the indicator light comes on once for a half a second, there is a faint "click" but no eject motor noise and the disc cover does not open. When I turn the camera ON, I get the same thing, the indicator light briefly then the "click" but the screen stays blank and nothing works. Can you suggest anything? Is there a service centre I can send it to? The camera is a couple of years old and out of warrantee.

Hey there

personal experience? try banging but i do notadvice this becuase this will damage your player. unfortunately, there is no simple way to fix your problem. it has to be done by an expert technician with hands-on experience with fixing cams.

about your other question, you can bring your cam to a service center or repairshop which deals with electronic appliances repair. just explain to tyhem what specifically is happening and they should know what to do.

btw, where are you located? you can use Ekse's post and try to look for a technician that lives near you.

you can also contact their support by calling the number that bestdarngood provided. thanks for that man.

thanks for using fixya.

HI,

You can try this trick out first and see if it helps you.
Gently tap it twice at the end of the camera to ur palm and it will work again.
just tap it very lightly against the bottom of the camera holding it upright.

If this doesn't work then try giving it two three hard banging with your hands or just try tapping the camera on the table once.

Be carefull don't bang it that hard it may damage the cam.
And if the steps which i told you don't work then you will have to get it repaired.

Further you can download the user manual from HERE to find more troubleshooting steps.
You will also find the contact details for getting it repaired in the manual.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution

    if you want to get the disc out, you will need to open up the camera by unscrewing the outer screws but if you are not comfortable with doing this, I would just call the number above which is the manufacturer's support number and they can fix it for you. Good luck.

If the DVD-RW was re-formatted, everything is gone. There may be a possibility to find a program to recover them, a search on the net may find it, not sure.

Iv just bough a 4gb SD card for my for my hitachi DZ-BX35E. When i try to format it though it said card error and doesnt complete the formatting. So i need some help please.


I'm not really familiar w/ your Video Camera. But you 4gb SD card can take about 24,000 still pictures. From what I understand, the SD card is only for take still pictures and not videos. The Video Camera is designed to use the Digital Video discs for videos. 4Gb might be too big for the machine to handle. Hope this helps but really I'm not sure. Check out this website which talks a lot about the Hitachi. A lot of techie stuff too you can use.
