My Sony DCR-TRV250 flashes self-diagnosis display code C:31:23. The manual says C:31 is an owner correctable malfunction. It doesn't tell me what the 23 means. It suggests I eject the cassette tape and insert it again or disconnect the power cord or the battery and reconnect. I did both, but to no avail. What is a 23 and what is my problem?


It seems that the :23 portion of the code indicates a misalignment of the reading heads in you camcorder. \015\012\015\012You have two choices to correct this issue: Bring it to a Sony Authorized Repair Center, or many people have had success s ... Digital Cameras

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC27E Camcorder which was working great until a few days ago. my problem is its suddenly not showing my recorded tapes, I was watching footage only a few days ago from my recent holiday, the images were starting to get grey stripes across the screen, thought this was due to a low battery, put in a new one, still no images showing. Put in other prrecorded tapes they are showing nothing as well. Then I tried to record which works fine, but when I played it back its still


The gray strips usually mean the camera has dirt video heads - if it hasn't been dropped. Get a head-cleaning tape from Radio Shack or Best Buy, and run it a few times. If that doesn't do it, it'll have to be cleaned by a repair shop. Off brand ta ... Digital Cameras

After you put in the tape and push the record button it will start recording for 3 to 4 seconds. I did notice that the drive motor as you look through window to see the tape moving. The tape seems to be jerking and not moving at an even speed. Does anyone have an idea on whats wrong with it or better yet how to repair the problem. Thank you for help and time with this. dom:)

My canon vixia hv30 camcorder is not reading tapes anymore. It rewinds and forwards and reports the tape position but the tape counter does not roll showing only dashes as if the tape is empty. All this started when i put in a cassette in which the tape has somehow become crunched. There was some pushing involved and the camera auto-ejected teh tape a couple of time before i realized that the tape inside was crunched. I then straightened the tape by pulling it partly out and rewinding it manual


First off how long have you owned the camera? It sounds like damage to the recording head has been done. This can only be repaired by a qualified professional. Follow this link to start the repair process through canon. You may also try other indepe ... Digital Cameras

Sony HDR-HC3E error code C31 22 and message 'reinsert cassete'. I've reinserted cassette, tried another new cassette, checked for dirt etc. It was working the day before, it will record but on playback the error code and message appear, and tape stops. It will play last 2 seconds of recorded video. I've removed power, battery, pressed reset. No mechanical damage. What is causing it?

Have just inherited this digital camcorder. Want to record video onto card rather than tape so bought a new card today. Tried to use for the first time but on pressing the record button I get a red 10 second countdown on the screen and then it beeps and the recording stops. Am able to play back the 10 seconds of footage ok but can't get it to record for any longer. Have gone through the instruction booklet with a fine tooth come and probably missing something really simple - but want to use


Well, you failed to tell us the make and model of the camera so I can only give you a generic answer. New cards must be formatted in the camera. Video requires a fast card so it can keep up. ... Digital Cameras

I have a tape stuck in the Sony CCD V8afu video camera. When I press the "eject" button, the tape disengages from the recording head, rewinds and is ready for the tape carrier to "pop-up." It just does not "pop-up." Any solutions, as the stuck tape holds our childhood memories? Thanks.


From your description, it appears that the unload sequence is not completing. There is a small latch that moves to allow the cassette carrier to release. To reach this latch will require some dis-assembly. This is not an unusual failure and should ... Digital Cameras
