[qanda]This thread is about the Hitachi DZ-BX35A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]This machine has started to give the Cannot Read Disk etc message whenever a disk is inserted, even disks it has previously recorded and finalized. The unfinalized disks had to be dealt with by Isobuster. I suspect that the laser has died, so has anyone any ideas of how to check this? This is my sons camcorder and I do not have any blank disks so if there is a way of checking this without having to buy any I would be pleased to hear of it.
(Hitachi are a complete waste of time, they just pointed me at a repair company who have a queue on their telephone. And their manual doesn't say anything useful about this.)
