This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

This is usually caused by a defective LCD module or a defective flex cable that connects the LCD to the camera. I recommend replacing them both at the same time. The LCD / Touchscreen module is no longer available from Sony at an reasonable price for this Model. However, I have a limited supply of them in stock as well as an aftermarket supplier with hundreds of them.

Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

Error code 32:11 indicates a problem in the cameras tape transport sestem.This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly, a defective clutch in the take-up spool or a faulty rotary mode switch. This will require disassembling the camera to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively.

The C32:11 error is a motor movement error. This means that a motor or gear is NOT moving when it should. As a sfety feature, this will prevent a tape from getting loaded and getting damaged. This unit requires repair. This is not typically a DIY repair as opening these up is tricky and if not done properly can cause additional damage. Check for local labor rates as well as the fixed repair cost from Sony directly. The fixed rpair cost from Sony will also include any parts that are required.

Hope this helps,

Hi, I'm from the Philippines. I have the same handycam model. The first time I connected it to my PC (Windows XP) via firewire, nothing happened. It cannot detect my handycam. I returned the firewire card to the shop where I bought it. They tested it and the firewire card is ok but the firewire cable is defective so they replaced it. When I got home, I tested it again but still the handycam cannot be detected by my PC. I went online to find a solution and I came upon a solution that you need to attach/connect your charger to the handycam before you connect your handycam to your PC. It said that the handycam needs a steady supply of power to be able to connect to the PC. It sounded weird but I tried it and BINGO! The handycam got detected. I was able to capture my videos.

I also have a TV Tuner & Capture Card but when I capture videos thru the RF cables, the videos losses quality and videos are blurred. Thats the reason I bought a firewire card.
