The iris is stuck in the closed position. This could be released by a simple tap to the side, but be careful. If a slight tap does not release it, then the camera will need to be disassembled and the iris cleaned and re-assembled.

My vp-dc563 camcorder reports disc error every time we put discs in - yes we have tried new ones

Sounds like it's having trouble reading have you tried a lense cleaner disc? IF that doesn't work you will have to find a repair depot. I havent had much luck with DVD camcorders My advice get a hard drive camera or older tape camera you will be happier. Sorry to say that but too many of these hard drive camcorders are even putting errors on the discs and make it very hard to edit in a computer later on.

View finder in samsung VP- W90 very blurred. Focus not the problem.

If the focus is blurred on the view finder, assuming you are talking about the eye piece and not the lcd, then it is a out of focus issue. Even though when you view it it's ok. Some cameras still have a focus knob somewhere to focus the eye piece.
