Question about Panasonic HDC-DX1 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Cannot Eject DVD

I inserted a new DVD into the camcorder. When I started recording, I got a message to check disk. I tried to eject the disk, but it came back and said the control data damaged and then displayed "rebuilding disk control data do not shake camera". I have let it try to "rebuild" the control data for hours but it never finishes. I have tried it both on battery power and electrical power and also pushed the reset button, but it just cycles through "Reading Disk", "Control Data Damaged" to "Disk Data is Being Repaired..."

Any help would be appreciated before I send it off for repair. I can't believe there is not a manual eject on this to prevent this kind of problem.

Thank you,

Steve

    Sai,


    Thank you for the response. Do you know for a fact that the DX1 has the manual eject? You would think Panasonic would include one since every manaufacturer has included a manual eject for CD/DVD drives since their inception, but this camera does not have one that I can find. I have looked everywhere for it but it does not exist. If you have done this on a Panasonic HDC-DX1, please provide exact location.

There will be a manual eject but its slightly tricky. There will be a small hole(about 1mm diameter) near the tray where you insert the DVD. Just insert a samll pin or something into it and keep shoving it in and out by repeatedly pressing the eject button. If its just a stuck DVD then it will come out in a JIFFy. Otherwise send it for repairs as taking the unit apart might void your warranty! Good luck!

Sai.

When I inserted a new dv cassette into the camcorder to record - it chewed the tape then the "eject" message came up, I inserted a new tape and the eject message showed up again. I have also noted a whine...



This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

I need to take what i recorded and put on my computer to burn on a disk...how?


Since the camcorder records on Mini DVD+/-R and RW, and SD/MMC cards, just eject the media from the camcorder and insert it into the appropriate drive on your computer. Open the burning software of your choice (which you may or may not already own) and follow the directions for burning the files with that software. If the disks are DVD RW or SD/MMC delete the files after burning is complete. Even though the manual states that it will work with DVD-R, the camcorder seems to have issues finalizing these particular formats, so I recommend using DVD+R and DVD+RW. I hope this helps and good luck. Please vote appropriately and leave a comment.

Eject dvd doesn'start recording


This sometimes happens when a disk is not formatted prior to recording .. the DVD is telling you it cant record on it at the time you want because it would have to format first and then start recording so missing the times you have set .
Best thing to do is use re- recordable discs only and format prior to use then the dvd should start straight away .
If not then the set has a serious read problem and requires looking at by a qualified engineer ... Regards Vortash
