    I have the same issue, on the DZ-BX35A, I cannot get the disk to eject. All other camera functions work fine. Tries using battery, AC power supply, camera on, camera off. Disk does not eject.

    Have had this model camcorder just a little over a year & now door won't open. Is it worth the money to get it repaired - any idea how much it will cost.

    It gets stuck on disc access, but it won't access. The disc eject won't work as long as it's stuck on disc access. I've also tried everything, but nothing seems to work.

    Same issue - basically. Battery was running low, screen said disc error and shut down. Now won't eject no matter what I try...

    mine started 11 mos after purchase. gets stuck on disc access. reset button does nothing. using ac power or charged battery does nothing.

    not really a solution but a suggestion. i have contacted hitachi about this problem....they advised me to remove the battery for about a minute, put the battery back in the camcorder hit reset and then hold the disc eject button for ten seconds...didnt work for me but might work for you...

    Same as you all. Stuck in disc access, reset does not work. Tried to take it apart, apparently screws are under the disc tray to prevent taking off the door to get DVD out manually

I have yet to figure out this same issue 4 years later and still won't open. Can't finalize any of my DVD discs so I can't even watch the DVDs I was able to record before the door jammed shut. Someone told me wolf camera was a great repair shop. I've just not had the time. Anyone with any knowledge of this I'm at yahoo and email is... Rileygurlzmom

My hitachi dvd/cam model bx35a i have brought three different sd cards i can record but i can not take a photo keeps saying card error

Check the manual, I think you have to format the card for the Hitachi camera. You only have to do this once with each card you use.

When you format the card, it makes a new folder (directory) for that specific device. i think there is a setup / format SD card command. Make sure you empty the movie that you have on the card before you format.


Please rate me.

If you mislay the accessories, it is hardly fair to blame the manufacturer

Recording from the TV

I don't thinks it possible. Usually those cameras can record through a DV port that is two way not though an analog device.

You will have to use a Tivo, a DVD recorder, a VCR, or a computer with at TV tuner and DVR capability.

Help ejecting dvd

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.

How do I upload my raw-video from my Hitachi BX35A mini DVD-RW camcorder to my pc for editing? I have a Hitachi camcorder bx35a, and I misplaced the accessories when moving. How can I upload the raw video...

I think I had a similar problem with my new Panasonic DVD camcorder. Even though I had finalised the RAM disc the PC could not read the disc but could see it. I tried drag & drop into a new folder on my PC. I then renamed the video files by changing the ending to .VOB.
I could then open & play these files in Power DVD. Using software downloaded from the internet I converted the VOB files into AVI and could then use PINNACLE to edit them into a holiday movie/DVD. Some software will enable editing/reading of VOB fileswithout converting to AVI but as I am familiar with PINNACLE I just stick with what I know! Bit laborious but it worked for me.
I still prefer my mini dv camcorder - firewire works perfectly & direct into PINNACLE software for editring..
Hope it works for you
