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. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these.

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.

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,
Dan

Fire wires are available for almost all cameras, they are easy to get at the local electronics store or on line, I buy mine through ebay. All you need is the model number of the camera and the salesperson can locate the cable you need, or better yet take the camera with you and let them match it up for you. try radio shack. Most computers have the software for the transfers already installed, there are a ton of software options out there to use just look for one that fits your price range. I use Nero and it is available on line or in stores. you can't record without the tape, there are no hard drives in this camera to store video. You can hook the camera up and record directly to the computer through the fire wire. The tapes can be used over and over again till they start to wear down, but you should easily uses these 10 times or more before getting an new one. I doubt any store will take a trade in, maybe a small family owned store could work with you, or maybe a pawn shop. The laptop probably will not hold a lot of video in the memory but you can burn these on to a DVD disc using either windows or Nero.
