    same problem, camera closes with no tape in it, but will not close with a tape in it

  • 224969 Feb 17, 2009

    Sometimes when I try to insert the tape it doesn't close and I get the message C:31:40, When it does close, sometimes I might watch the vcr for a short while and then it stops and the same message, C:31:40, comes up. I tried changing the battery and using the electrical outlet instead of the battery and I got the same result. Does anybody knows what does the C:31:40 message mean? How do you fix it?

    Thank you.

Sony digital 8 DCR-TRV330. When I play known good tapes, sometimes i get nothing but a blue screen--the counter display does not even move. However, if I give the unit a good shake, even though I cannot...


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.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair cost low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Transfer video from tape to memory stick to put on computer using a sony handycam recorder dvr-trv330?


Yes you should be able to get a USB to Firewire cable for about £10 to get your movies over to your PC or Laptop computer, that is what I am doing now, then to edit my films and burn to a DVD to post to mates.

I cannot download from camcorder dcr-trv330 to pc.. help It is a Sony Digital 8. I downloaded the USb driver but pc does not recognize it. Is ther any other way to download tapes to PC?or make a DVD


If your PC has DV link port, connect camera via DV link and transfer movie files in computer.
Other way is to hook camera with DVD recorder and burn DVD.
Thanks.

I had the same problem with my Canon. Checked the site and found a solution of dropping the camera onto a carpeted floor from about 1/2m to 1m. Thought that it was bullsh1t but was desperate and so tried it. worked a treat!!!

Hope this helps.

Sony DCR TRV330 Error message C:31:22


This is a failure of a motor to move inside the camera. There are a number of causes of this problem. The tape will be ejected to prevent the tape from getting damaged. This is usually the head/drum assembly that is not moving. This is not a repair that should be attempted by an inexperienced individual. Please bring this to a service center for repair.

Sony Handycam DCR-TRV330 Digital-8 won't calibrate tapes to be able to view


hi there. i just actually had this problem right now. and heres how i fixed it :) it had the error so i took out the tape left it ejected for about 5 seconds. then put the tape back. it read for a little then errored again so it was close. next what i did is plugged the camera in (last time this error happened i plugged in the power and it fixed it) still no fix so i took off the battery waited 5 seconds then put it back on. after that i ejected the tape again and re put it in and it worked! you could try anyone of those things. and usually they work for me. maybe it has something to do with the cameras being old.

My camcorder tape door won't close


Try removing the battery for a few seconds, and then re-inserting. This seems to reset something on my DCR-TRV20, and it starts closing properly.

Camera does not accept cassette


Same problem was with me and Sony service-center at Mumbai asked me to pay Rs.8,000/- for repaires.I prefered to give it to one private Service shop and got it repaired for only Rs.1,000/-
including its servicing with garenty.Now for last two years-plus
there is no trouble in operation.
