    I have an Hitachi DZ-MV350A camcorder and I'm getting the following message on the screen: Error has ocurred. Error code No. 0280. Please read the manual. The manual states that the disc may need to be cleaned. Well, I tried that as well as inserting a new dvd. Neither worked. I also tried to reset the camera by pushing the reset button. That didn't work either.

    I called your comapny and they told me to do these same things. When I informed them that we did, they gave us the number of a repair facility in NY (I'm in RI). The company wants a $100 check up front that will be applied to the repair! I don't think so. I'm sure with shipping each way plus the repair, I'm looking at a $200+ repair for a 3 year old camera.

    If I can't fix it myself then I'm off shopping again though this time it will not be for an Hitachi product!

Wont start up it goes to a option menu to reboot but it dont then it gives me the settings but wont do anything else just a black screen with a disk read error occurred press ctrl+alt+del to restart i do...

From what you have described it sounds like you have a bad hard drive. If you have a CD/DVD drive try getting a Windows Installation CD/DVD and booting from it.

It says "a disc read error occurred" press ctrl+alt+delete..... this is right at the wont do anything now. help.....

Make sure you do not have a floppy diskette, CD or DVD inserted, or a USB drive plugged in. If the error continues, either your hard drive has a loose connection, has lost data, or has stopped working entirely.
You would need to remove it and put it in a USB enclosure and plug it into another computer for testing, or take it to an expert. Sorry. Best of luck.

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 :)

Unit wont read any disk including lens cleaner.

Call your manufacturer if you are under warranty they can assist you with replacing your unit. Your manufacturer can offer you repairs/replacements/referrals to local repairman in your area.
