My camera won't take a disc at all. It acts like a gate is shut. The only way to get a disc in is to hold the eject button and slide it in, then I get an error message "disk error" C:13:01. I've tried resetting the camera by taking the batteries out and holding the power button for 15 seconds, still it won't take a disc. When I go to eject the disc it isn't pushing it out I have to hold the camera so the disc can slide out, and it does, it isn't stuck in anyway. Any suggestions?

Re: camera wont take a disc
It's an old camera and with age things tend to dry out and get stuck. All you have is a sticking disk transport. Pull the back off the camera to get to the disk drive and operate it to see how it works and using a tiny amount of desintered grease apply it too the actual drive shaft and the slides which the carriage slides along. Don't use oil, it goes everywhere. Operate the disk again and make sure it's going to eject and put it back together. Easy, good for another 8 years.
Oh and clean the dust and muck out as well. A common problem is a label falling off a disk which gums up the works too.
i suggest a try with new disc,problem still remain, i think there is a mechanical problem with disc holder. I suppose you have the facility to use memory stick so why you use the disc just use the memory stick. It is better for you.
to fix the problem you have to go to sony shop..

Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
Tip: Make sure the CD or DVD disc is not in use. Quit all applications that are using files on the disc.
Press the Media Eject key at the top-right corner of the keyboard.
If that doesn't work, drag the disc's icon to the Trash.
If that doesn't work, restart the computer, then hold down the
mouse button or trackpad button while the computer is starting up, until
the disc is ejected.
To restart, choose Restart from the Apple menu.
1. First shut down the system by flipping the power switch in the back off.
2. Hold down the eject disc button.
3. While still holding down the eject button, flip the power switch to turn back on your PS3.
4. When the green light comes on, wait a few seconds then tap the eject button a couple times. The fan will run on full power and the disc will eject.
This wil show you how to take it apart if that becomes necessary. But try this instead. First hold the eject button down for 5 seconds. I that fails look for a tiny hole near the disc slot. Use a straightened paper clip and push it in the hole firmly. This should eject the disc. Another option is to use firmware to eject the disc. Follow these directions:
To eject a disc with Open Firmware commands, follow these steps:
Restart the computer.
Immediately after the startup sound, press and hold the key combination Command-Option-O-F. Note: The Command key has the Apple and () icons on it.
Release the keys when you see a white screen that says "Welcome to Open Firmware."
At the prompt, type: eject cd
Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject any disc that is present, and "ok" appears behind your command when the action is complete.
Okay, the same thing happened to me and I managed to get the disc out. First is the blue light on. If it isnt then you should hold the eject button and use another cd and push it into the disc drive and gently push your stuck disc around. When you hold the eject button your PS3 will make a loud clicking sound but dont worry. Just keep using the extra disc and push the stuck disc around and it should come out
Do you have any details on what the error was? If it was a 001 read error, or something related, where you often get a green or blue screen, you simply need to FIRST eject the disc by pressing the eject button, then hold the power button down for about 5 seconds and your Wii will shut down.
Try these tips.....usually holding down the touchpad buttton while tapping the eject button during bootup works.
Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. ) If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.
I just had this problem today and when I attempted to eject the CD it would give me an error message that stated (ERR 32). Apparently this means that there is something blocking the movement of the screen, a little manipulation should help the issue. Another variable could be the Eject lock feature, essentially a "child lock" for your disc. When this lock is activated it prevents the CD in the deck to be ejected. You can change this by holding down the blue source button and the eject button simultaneously for about 2 or 3 seconds. A message should appear saying "No Eject" and one that repeatedly flashes "Eject on" These two things seemed to help me alot when I had this issue. If those things don't work I would recommend calling JVC, much to my suprise they were actually really helpful. Their number is 1-800-252-5722.
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.
Unfortunately their is no step by step or guaranteed method to fix this. Here are a few things you could try: turning it off and on, press/hold the eject button, resetting while holding the eject button, shaking or tapping it a little while trying to eject it, holding it different ways ex. face disc opening down towards floor while gently tapping and pressing the eject button. Essentially do whatever you can to get the disc to jar loose, >but whatever you do, don't for any reason stick anything in the slot or try to open the case <Doing this will void the warranty for sure! If none of these work your last resort would be to return it for a new one (providing you still have your receipt and it's less than a year old) or take it to a costly repair guy.
