Having problems with your Sony Mavica MVC-FD200 Digital Camera ?

I have a Sony MVC300. An error code cam up-13:01 when I tried to finalize the disk. It would not complete the process. I also tried to intialize a new disk and the same error code came up. Thanks. Linda Burg

Hi,

This seems to be a common issue in these models.It's an error that appear telling something is wrong with the card. It\015\012can be the way the card is formatted, or it can be a problem with the\015\012contact. I guess using a too big capacity card could also produce that\015\012problem. If you use an adapter, this include even more\015\012contacts in the equation that could be problematic.\015\012
\015\012
If you have another card that work well, then the inner contact of\015\012the camera are OK. To make sure a card have clean contact, you need to\015\012use a pen eraser and rub them a bit (be sure no residue are left on\015\012them after that operation).
\015\012
It might also come from the adapter itself not being tight enough.\015\012
\015\012
But the first thing to try is to format the card. Try to backup\015\012stuff on it before doing so. The best is always to format it in the\015\012camera itself, but when that fail you can also try to format it as\015\012FAT32 in a computer.\015\012
\015\012
If nothing do, even a single (no adapter) card, the problem might\015\012be inside. Then the unit will need servicing as it's not easy to\015\012open/fix and a connector spring might need replacement.

There is one more way, if that would work :-

Recommended Steps to repeat my repair:
(WARNING this is involved, it took me 2.5 hours and there were lots of screws and connectors)
1) get a piece of paper and draw a simple view of your camera, then note all the places where the screws exist.
(draw a line out from your picture and then a circle or something)
2)\015\012now remove all the screws you can find on the outer housing minus the\015\012ones on the front of the lens and the eyepiece (There should be 13),\015\012and carefully lay them on the little circles you drew on the paper, so\015\012you'll know where they go later.
3) Gently pull the viewfinder\015\012module straight up, and detach the 2 ribbon connectors and molex from\015\012the main camera body. (I'd recommend making another drawing where each\015\012ribbon goes
in relation to the body of the camera because there are\015\012lots of them you'll eventually have to remove.) Place the viewfinder\015\012module aside.
4) Gently remove the ribbon cables and molex that are\015\012connecting the lens assembly to the main body (One of them will be\015\012attached with a little foam pad with adhesive, it's ok to pull this off\015\012for now)
5) Pull the main body backward and set the lens assembly aside.
6)\015\012Now, looking at the inside of hte main body, remove the two brass\015\012screws holding the top two circuit boards to the bottom one, as well as\015\012any ribbon cables and connectors that attach the top boards to anything\015\012below (I think there's 4 ribbon cables and one molex), and slide the\015\012top two circuit boards down away fro the notch/tongue at the top. Set\015\012the top two circuitboards aside.
7) Remove the 3 black screws on the\015\012top (two are for the hinge in the door), one black screw on the top\015\012left of the metal bracket (kind of recessed), and one black screw near\015\012the bottom right. If you did everything correctly, the whole metal\015\012bracket with attached CDR should come away from the back door assembly.\015\012Set the back door assembly aside.
8) now flip the bracket over and\015\012you'll see the CDR and laser assembly (a black plastic thing) which is\015\012attached by 3 plastic connectors and rubber grommets)
Before\015\012continuing, flip it back over and remove the largest ribbon cable\015\012located under the sticker about replacing the fuse. (I didn't detach\015\012the smaller one)
9) on the CDR side, Gently pull the tabs on each\015\012plastic foot away from the center and it should lift off the metal\015\012bracket. (I left the 3rd one with the ground tab on it, but I did\015\012remove the screw that secured the ground tab.) Then flip the CDR over.
10)\015\012Near the bottom you should see an area where a small white gear is\015\012exposed, this is attached by 3 screws, remove them and the gear housing\015\012lid.
11) Once the gear train is exposed it should be a simple matter\015\012to see the worm gear (metal and long) and the little spur gear on the\015\012metal tab.
12) Gently bend the metal arm a little so the spur gear makes better contact with the worm gear.
13) Carefully reassemble everything.
14) You're Done! I hope that fixed your problem!

Let me know, if need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
The software will most likely need to be updated. The manufacture will do this for $50 or you may be able to get lucky enough to find a donwload on the web.

I have a Panasonic VDR-M50 camcorder. I was attempting to finalize several DVD-R discs and received two different error codes : 0901 and 0280. After receiving the codes, the camcorder locked up and refuses to even correctly access the disks now. I really don't want to lose this data, and Panasonic technical support wants me to send in the camera. However, the camera successfully finalized other discs in between the ones with errors and also still properly records on a new disc. Please help!
