Guus Wed, 8 Mar 2006 13:59:56 -0800 Hey all yea im a member of the wack your cam club lol (didnt work for me) i did find a rubber coated roller We hated the idea of spending money to have it fixed knowing how expensive it was. I'd like to get my problem fixed...
Is that why they call it a HANDYcam? Best to hold the roller pins arm firm while you press the bit of biro down on pin? smacking the side of the camera actually worked!!!! C:31:42 I got the dreaded C:31:23 error.

Debbie's whack-a-cam (she should trademark it!) fixed it, after a few whack/test repetitions. C 31 30 FG fault when starting capstan. Solved! More about the author Thank You!
Just because this error code comes up that does not mean that the capstan motor is defective. Kenall C-3123 Seems as if Sony wanna carry this tradition into the year 2000, and beyond!Good luck all! I have cleaned the inside of my camera, tried different tapes, disconnected the battery, etc etc etc.
Violaine Sun, 8 Jan 2006 16:29:11 -0800 I have the SONY DCR-PC101E and I have always been very happy with it. so we smacked it in the side where the tape is inserted, turned it on and the damned camara worked!!!... actually i think it was because my camera was kept in cold temprature.. Sony Handycam Cassette Door Won't Close I didn;t hav any manuals so i tried to do what i thought it would work.
One smack worked great. After I removed the tape I noticed the small black tape roller (see cylinder in black rubber) had fallen off its pin and was loose inside the camera. Although my tape wasn't "mangled" as the comment describes, I am guilty of this sin. http://phabletkeyboards.com/sony-handycam/sony-handycam-error.php Anyway, I didn't have to whack it, but switching tapes worked!

Previously, I switched the camera off and replaced the battery with no effect, but when I left the switch in the "camera" position, it cleared. Who needs an instruction manual? In this case you can assemble it back on the roller and all should work.I could not find my locking piece, so I carried on as follows:I took the loose roller
This can also happen if there is a problem with the tape, such as a worn or defective tape. The camcorder can detect that there is a problem with the picture quality and it may be caused by a dirty or clogged video head. THIS IS A 5 YR OLD CAMCORDER. Thanks so much!
Mr moo Tue, 21 Mar 2006 00:59:36 -0800 I was very skeptical when reading all of these comments regarding whacking the camera, got myself to try it, worked perfect. the error code was gone... Jason Tue, 27 Dec 2005 00:16:17 -0800 Follow up on the error 31:23 well the slap to the DCR-TRV350. Simply push the new straw firmly into the center of the black roller.If you see the straw take a small flat head screwdriver and press down on the top of the
I woke up Sunday morning and said, "what the heck, it broken anyway", so I hit it on the carpeted floor twice and IT WORKED!!!
