Unit may have dust or contaminates built up on optical pickup. If you can reach the lens, try to very gently clean the pickup lens with a Q-tip. It is possible the unit has a defective turntable motor in which case you will have to have it replaced

Power Suply not connecting



This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

Cannot Eject DVD


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!

Transfer footage from DVD to Computer for editing


I use ISO Buster to read the AVCHD footage into my computer and then edit with Pinnacle Studio. With ISO Buster, you place the 3" AVCHD DVD into your regular DVD Rom drive on your computer and it will rip the raw files directly from the disk. You cannot transfer the movies from the DX1 to Pinnacle or any other editor using the USB cable.
