Question about Hitachi DZ-MV580A DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Disc Eject won't work after improperly inserting disc and since removing it.

I inserted a DVD-R disc improperly and it got stuck. The disc eject button worked for a bit but would not eject the stuck disc. I played around with it, tried to pry it open carefully and it finally ejected the stuck disc. I took out this disc and now the disc eject button will not work at all. I re-set the settings to default along with taking the battery off. I don't know what else to do. Can you help?

    Sort of the same problem. My DVD RAM disc would not read correctly and then the eject button would not work the door. Now the disc is stuck in the camera and can not be accessed. I have tried to take the door off and still can't get it to unhook and open.

    I have the same problem. Discs kept saying "disk access." Kept on blinking and blinking. Finally, disc eject wouldn't work. Also, the camera kept wanting to reformat the DVD-RW disks. I've only used DVD-RW discs in the camera. What's going on? Repair man says a new ejector motor will cost $180 buck. 90 day labor warranty is expired.

I have an DZ-MV780 with the same problem. I found that the cover plate around the flash hot shoe only has a single screw. If you remove it and pull up the cover you gain access to the gear and lock mechanism. Hit eject and if necessary press on the white gears you see in front of the zoom switch. It should then cause the door mechanism to unlock and open.

Disc inserted improperly now stuck


Take a butter knife (not a steak knife) and push the diskette into the drive the rest of the way, and then eject it.

The player will read dvd but will not play cd

Richard: This is what said: "
  • Turn on the DVD player. It generally takes a few seconds to get going. Take out the DVD if there's one in the drive already.
  • 2 Make sure the disc isn't scratched or dirty. Use a soft rag to clean the disc if you see any smudges. Insert the CD into the DVD player's disc drive and close it.
  • 3 Press the "Play" button on the DVD player or remote control. Some DVD players will begin reading the disc automatically. Pushing the button works just as well.
  • 4 Use the "Scene Selection" buttons on your remote to select a track. Some DVD players have odd ways of ordering the buttons on the remote. You might have to play around a bit before you find all the right buttons to work the CD playing function of your machine.
  • 5 Crank it up and enjoy your music. The DVD player will act just like a CD player and play the tracks of the CD through the TV.

    DVD drawer will not open - stuck dvd inside

    My only suggestion is to press and hold the eject button for a period of time (15 - 30 seconds). This might unlock the drawer. If not, I would contact Bose Customer Service directly.

    The dvd drawer on my BD-HP16U is stuck in closed position. The screen display "hold" when I push the eject button.

    Try inserting a small pin through the hole beneath the insertion cabin, after pressing the eject button. If you don't have such a hole, Push the eject button and tap hardly on the top of the player. The drive will come out in two or three attempts.

    D V D disc stuck in my computer

    So you've pressed the eject button on the DVD Drive and tried it by clicking eject from the windows.
    Ok here are the most common problems:
    1. The CD was improperly placed and it got stuck in the tray. To solve this you can either open up your DVD rom or you can try this: There should be a very small hole on the tray from where you insert the disk, take a pin or something that goes in and try to shake it so that it settles and then try ejecting.
    2. The motor which controls the movement is faulty, you need to change the motor very carefully not damaging any other item on the DVD rom.
    Hope this helps.
    Please feel free to ask me any further.

    A dvd is stuck in the drive. It resists all attempts at removal including the ''eject cd'' command in Open Firmware. Can I manually remove it?

    The iMac (Slot loading) computer's disc eject mechanism is electrical instead of mechanical. To eject a CD-ROM disc at startup that contains system software, press the mouse button until the computer ejects the disc. If the disc does not contain system software, wait for the iMac to start up and drag the disc icon to the Trash.

    If either of these steps fails to eject the disc, push the drive's manual eject button with a small, blunt object like a paper clip. This button is located to the right of the CD/DVD slot as shown in Figure 1. The computer must be turned on to eject a disc in this manner.

    ht3007_1.gifFigure 1 Manual eject button

    Once the disc is ejected, it extends just beyond its center hole so you can remove it from the drive. If the disc fails to eject, while holding in the paper clip, use another CD to gently push against the inserted CD. This gentle pressure may help to release the inserted CD.

    Important: After ejecting the disc with the manual eject button, you must restart the iMac in order for the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive to work.

    is there a tiny little hole you can insert a paperclip into around the front of the cd.
    if so use a large one if you have it , insert and press hard to eject.
    if not then you will need help.
    even if you get it out the eject motor belt is likely slipped or broken.
