Question about Canon DC10 DVD Camcorder

Cannot eject finalized disc

When I move the power switch to camera and push the open button, the disc cover does not open. I hear four clicks and then no open. The record pause indicator in the upper right corner of the lcd is on. Is this normal for a finalized disk? My disk is a dvd-rw type. Thanks for any help.

Try turnin the camera to the side where gravity will help pop open the disc and be careful not be keeping it close with your own hand. Its a thin cover and you can accidently be holding it close without knowing.

Our Hitachi camcorder will not eject the disc out of our camcorder. My daugther's school project is on this disc & she needs it for tomorrow project.


Had the same issue before. Here is how I solved it
Remove battery; open LCD screen2.gif;hold in reset button a few seconds; reconnect battery; set to "off" and eject .... out pops 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 DVD2.gif and the cover opens and closes fine. I will buy some fresh DVDs this weekend and see if the problem returns.

Probelm ejecting the dvd from my Hitachi GX3100A


If you go to the Hitachi website, you can download the product manual for your camcorder there.

These are the instructions for opening the dvd door.

1 Press down the DISC EJECT button once and
release it.
A few moments after the ACCESS/PC
indicator blinks, the cover of disc insertion
block will open.
2 Gently open the cover by hand fully until it
stops.

This is the link for the owners manual search: http://www.hitachionlinestore.com/survey/manualsearch.aspx


Hope this helps.

Can not eject tape


I had same problem, while transferring media from TRV-16 to DVD, tape would not play, then would not eject. This after transferring several tapes to DVD. I tried several things over the last couple months that did not work before finally getting it open today. It did me no good to remove several of the outer panels that were each held by two "tiny" phillips head screws each. Went to the internet, found your post, also found a post that referred me back to SONY page which follows.......

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the cassette compartment will not open or the tape is stuck and will not eject.
IMPORTANT: If your camcorder model has a RESET button, first try pressing this button. If there is no RESET button, or pressing the button does not resolve the issue, continue with the troubleshooting steps below.
  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery from the camera.
  3. Remove the AC power supply from the camera.
  4. Slide the power switch on the camera to the VTR , VCR or CAMERA mode for 15 seconds.
  5. Slide the power switch back to the OFF position.
  6. Connect the AC power supply to the camera.
  7. Attempt to open the cassette compartment.
"NOTE: If the issue is still unresolved after completing all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required."

After I did this, I could hear a whirring sound when I hit eject, although nothing came out. While the whirring was going on, I pulled up and out with constant pressure and the cassette holder opened. The tape had jammed apparently as the little protective plastic tape guard was jammed partially open when I pulled the cassette out. Good Luck and don't be afraid to put a little pressure on the door if you can hear the door trying to open.

Now I turn to recovering the tape, but having grown up with cassette decks, don't believe it will be a problem.

Help ejecting dvd


I had the same problem and tried for ages (even tried forcing the door open thinking I could just tape it shut) without luck.
Then my very clever wonderful husband had a go (I know i'm crawling and yes my knees hurt).

Any way to the relevant bit. If you hold the eject button down and at the same time slide a knife or similar object round the edge of the door where the screw is near where it says photo/select you'll find that the door opens as this is an override mechanism.

Cassette holder won't open


this happens because on the right side of mechanism is a push on switch and a metal plate pushes when cover goes out.If this is not working properly then no command exists to open the cas.elevator.Use a contact spray in this right side i mean the side of lens.If problem continues send it back to the shop...

Unable to Finalize Disc/Finalize Option Blacked Out


I don't know if there is any solution. The Canon DC 210 seems to have BIG BIG problems with finalizing, even for those who are plugged in and in Play mode.

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.
