All of the sudden it says "no disk" all the time. I have no earthly idea why or what I have done. No matter what disk. After you remove the disk from the camera, I can play it on my DVD drive on my computer but the camcorder will not recognize it. Any ideas?

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson. If your DC40 doesn't seem to have suction through the wand but picks up as normal on flooring, it's likely there's a blockage in the wand or hose. To locate and remove any obstructions, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:
It's also worth giving both filters a wash as shown in the video below - in normal use this should be done at least once a month. Use cold water without detergent and at least 24 hours for the filters to dry completely before replacing them.
I hope this helps, but if you'd like any further assistance please call our freephone Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).
Sorry I know very little about the dvd side but my experience with several VCRs is they need cleaning sometimes just like audio tape recorders and players need cleaning. Early in my days of VCR ownership the engineer I used was sick of seeing me and taught me how to clean the heads, guides and rollers myself to restore performance and help prevent tapes being chewed. Head cleaning tapes simply did not reach the parts needing cleaning though the the wet type sometimes helped.
A VCR might work normally for several months and then suddenly it would happen again. Sometimes I needed to do a clean several times in a month. I did have a Sharp VCR once and that had something called an idler reel that would "suddenly" need replacing (several times) due to chewed tapes but other than that manual cleaning did the job every time.
Later VCRs were fitted with a self cleaner that worked well and meant there was no trouble for a long time but when the self cleaner became loaded with filth they actually made matters worse.
Matter of interest, I use clean newspaper and methylated spirit for cleaning.
I have heard of this only a few months ago, it was the way the camera door can get fouled up by a wonky disk not stopping at the right place. Try to shoot a few seconds of extra movie, then try to open the door again. If that does not help press the reset button for 30 seconds to open the door (see handbook) on doing that.
