Fidus, I am not sure where you are located but the camcorder you're trying to use now is a PAL version of Sony's 8mm camcorder. If the tapes you recorded earlier were recorded in D8 (digital 8) or 8mm/Hi8 format NTSC, they will not play correctly in this unit. The NTSC and PAL formats are different and not compatible. Hope this helps you. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

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.

You have a transport problem with the tape feed. If you are up to working in small spaces without damaging adjacent parts, you can try and clean the pinch roller and capstan drive system with alcohol on a Q-tip. Sometimes, there are special cleaning tapes your can purchase that will do the same thing. Assuming that the transport is dirty, you may have a shot at it. If it's excessive wear instead, it's shop time. One more thing. DO NOT USE A CRINKLED TAPE IN YOUR CAMERA. IT WILL TEAR UP THE VERY DELICATE TAPE HEADS PERMANENTLY.

C:31:23



This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

Tape will not load; Error code 31:23


You may try the following troubleshooting steps:
Remove the battery of the Camcorder for one minute and re-insert the battery to check whether it works.
You may try resetting the Camcorder by pressing the RESET button located on it.
You may also check whether the issue occurs for all the tapes.
If the issue occurs with all the Tapes then it seems that internal parts of the Camcorder are malfunctioning.
Hence, the Camcorder requires service.

clean all brown oxide off capstan roller with 70% alcohol and Q-tip. Its the skinny silver axle that the rubber roller comes into contact with when the tape loads. This is what pulls the tape through the transport. also clean heads with head cleaner tape. If your head is dirty, the tape will wrap itself around the drum and cause a transport error.

In the case no CAPSTAN FG is produced in
the capstan rotation mode for 2 seconds or
more. This error is defined as [E06], and the
mechanism mode is shifted to STOP with the
pinch roller set off.
However, no CAPSTAN EMG is detected in the
STILL/FF/REW mode.
1. The CAPSTAN FG signal is not received by the syscon
CPU.
1) Disconnection in the middle of the signal line.
2) Failure of the CAPSTAN FG pulse generator (MR
element).
2. No capstan control voltage is supplied to the MDA.
3. No power is supplied to the CAPSTAN MDA.
4. The capstan cannot be started or capstan rotation is
stopped because tape transport load is too high.
1) Tape tension is extremely high. (Mechanical locking)
2) The tape is damaged or soiled with grease, etc.

FG fault when starting capstan.

Make sure battery is fully charged or a/c cord is used. Turn power on, and push reset button, try to eject tape again. Your capstan motor may be dead.
