    Anyone else ever get error message C31:23 whereby the camera loads the tape, however it won't calibrate it for read? Also able to unload the tape, just can't read any of them.

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.

How to play tapes not recorded by Sony Handycam DCR-TRV130 Digital-8 Digital Camcorder

Hi,
If video head got clogged then camcorder wont read tape in playback so result comes as blue screen.
Please use video head cleaning tape and clean video head of camcorder. This will solve your problem.
Video-8 head cleaning tape is available with amazon.com
Thanks.

Sony DCR-DVD105 Error message C:13:02


The problem is that DVD disks simply never worked in cameras, that is why Sony no longer make old cameras that use DVD, Hard-Drive cameras have same problems, grab a digital 8 camera (tapes) they do work, and picture is best on tape too.

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.

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.
