Hitachi DZ-MV550A Disc Door Won't Open

I have spoken with Hitachi and they said that there is a way to do an emergency release but couldn't give me the details. They suggested that I take the camera to a camera repair place and they should be able to release the door. Do you know if I can do this repair myself?

    I have the same problem with the door not opening. In addition, I can't navigate the disk or connect it to DVD Movie Album se. Vista recognizes the drive at least.

The door might be stuck. Try "helping" it open manually after pressing the eject button. Otherwise, something is probably broken and you might have to call a repairman.

when you get to the small rectangle hole use a small flat screw driver. you'll see the lever on the door side. put you're screw driver to the front and pry it backwards and it will unlatch.just pressing on it won't do anything.

eject the disk and if it it empty just open the cd door. with the lense to the left and the door on the top. look into the device. You will see to the left side a metal platform that houses the dvd laser. take and push the platform all the way to the left. The platform fails to retract once you do this you should be able to use a disk like normal provide you have a dvd-r disk.

Never mind, just ignored my posted note.
I just get confused . Had been tried to follow the instruction manual book, but the book doesn't mentioned max capacities of the SD memory card, so I called Hitachi Service Hotline, and they gave me helpful hints which is I should use max 1 GB SD memory card.
Thank you.

How do I open the gas door cover from inside the vehichle?

Questions like this are what the driver's vehicle handbook is for. I suggest this is your first port of call to discover where the knob, button or release lever is located or you could call the dealer and ask them.

If the fuel cover release doesn't work (and sometimes they do go wrong or break) there is often an alternative release to use in such emergencies though sometimes it needs a panel or carpet to be moved. The handbook will also tell where the emergency release is and how to get at it.

I was checking back brakes, emergency brakes. The axel on the passenger rear is welded to drum. Why wouldyou do that. Cannnot put check back brakes or install new emergency brakes on back passenger side....

They wouldn't and couldn't, or the rear drum would not turn and the car would not move. You need a special fork tool to go behind the drum and adjust the star fitting in order to release the drum and then you will be able to check the linings and cable.

I can't get my convertible top to go up or down, it is stuck half way. Is there a manual release for it?

The convertible top motor and release lever are in the luggage compartment.
From the Bentley manual, the following general procedure is suggested in order to close the top in an emergency situation.
Main motor. To release the top linkage from the motor, lift the left corner of the rear seat to access emergency release handle.
It is then possible to push the top manually to a near closed position. In case of the semi-automatic top, simply attach and lock the front latches.
Front latches. Once the fully automatic convertible top has been released from the motor and manually pushed to near-closure, emergency latching of the top is possible by using the S-shaped hex key provided in the emergency tool kit(attached to the trunk lid underside).
First, remove the the plastic cover over the latch motor in the front bow of the convertible top.
Next, use the hex key from the tool box to crank the front latches shut.

Sounds like your emergency is stuck or the shoes are rusted glue to the drum. Loosen the emergency if possible. and see if pulling the truck backwards will release them.
Had that problem with a car, had to put it in drive and give it a lot of gas till the shoes released.
