Thanks!!! FYI, our 27" Zenith Color TV didn't work after a smack on the concrete floor...go figure. Worked fine up until just before Christmas, of course. If you remove your take then try to gently twist both wheels you will find that one is stuck in an engaged position. More about the author
It will!Thanks a million Debbie. i whacked my trv245e after reading this thread. Thanks Debbie! It will suffice for now until I find a better solution (such as shrink tubing).You may have to do the same when replacing your Lock Pin. i thought about this
Now I hope Sony can realise why sometimes it's not as simple as "throw the tape away and get another" - This is the advice I got from Sony.Actually, here's some a little advice for all... One smack worked great. Gregg Sun, 12 Mar 2006 15:14:38 -0800 Thanks for the tip!
Wasted hours, nearly bought a new battery for $99, and missed some good filming opportunities. Since some one said "if it doesn't work, smack harder", so I smack it with a magazine. I fast forwarded and rewound a few times to see if I could generate the code again, but I could not! C:31:40 I guess I gotta get my old tape coverted to DVD quick before this whack a camera trick stops working :) John Sun, 25 Dec 2005 06:52:16 -0800 Whacked it 5
Who needs an instruction manual? Sony Handycam Error Codes Arthur Fonzarelli Sun, 29 Jan 2006 11:32:25 -0800 I've had the same problem with a Sony DCR-PC101E videocamera, with a the C31:22 flashing and beeping error message, the last month. I tried to hit it with palm of my hand and that was not working so I gave up.
We're not done.
So, I'll try to smack it harder next time.BTW, f**k Sony! C:32:11 Voilß. It's had good care and light use. I was (too?) carefully hitting the instrument, but nothing has changed.Does anybody know what is broken when the C:31:40 code appears and how it can be overcome without sending it to
I bought a new (but slightly inferior) camcorder for ú180 and stashed the faulty one for a rainy day, when I could dismantle it and hope to find it was just http://www.videoonerepair.com/sony-camcorder-video-camera-error-codes/ He explains that a 'white lock pin' is the culprit allowing the black rubber roller to become out of place which in turn makes the Sony device throw error code C:31:23. Sony Handycam Error C 31 22 I have a sony dcr-trv250 for about 2 years and it started acting up. C:31:23 I took a tube from a compressed air can and cut it to the correct size and replaced the broken plastic one.

See www.camcorderinfo.com in the Canon section. Look at www.camcorderservice.nland sent your camera to it. Personally I like Sony products, but now I sure don't like the people who run the company! I also suggest looking inside the camera's mechanisms to see if the plastic locking piece is lodged somewhere inside it.
I was contemplating sending it in for servicing, but decided to first check out whether anyone on the net had experienced the code/error.But whacking is not an accurate fix. a half of them.
