Have you tried different VHS tapes? If your VHS tape is too far rewound or at the very end your camcorder will display this problem. In a different VHS machine make sur the tape is rewound and then play the tape about a minute and then try it in the VCR.
If this doesn't work then there is a problem with the tape end sensors in your VCR.

Can i use a vhs-c tape in my handycam


No you cannot. A Digital-8 camcorder can read 8mm video and Hi-8 video, as well as the Digital8 format, but it cannot read or play VHS or VHS-C tapes.

I have a sony dig 8 trv340 and am receiving an error code of c31:42 what does this mean?


Hi,

In DCRTRV430 Camcorder, the C:31:42 error message is a Self diagnostic display. This message can be clearly identified by the help of a Sony Authorized service technician. Each of these codes indicates the symptoms and resolutions of the Camcorder. In C:31:42, the issue is with the tape and the tape mechanism.

I suggest that you remove and reinsert the tape to check if it helps. You may also try inserting new tapes in the Camcorder. Please remove the battery and/or power cable, connect, and perform operations from the beginning. You may also try resetting the Camcorder back to factory default after removing the tape.

To Reset the Camcorder, perform the steps below:

? Please open the LCD screen to locate the RESET button.

? To reset the Camcorder, press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.

? Please make sure that the Camcorder is turned on while pressing the reset button.


Also, try turning off the Camcorder and remove the battery pack. Then move the 'Power Switch' of the Camcorder to the ON position


for 1 minute. After about 1 minute, move the 'Power Switch' to the OFF position.

Now reinsert the battery, turn on the Camcorder and check whether it is working fine.


Thanks.

I video taped a wedding and am trying to copy from my camcorder "VHSC" to VHS RECORDER - PROBLEM IS I AM GETTING AUDIO BUT NO VIDEO when i try to replay from vhs tape on VCR


I can only believe that you did not connect everything (the yellow video cable) correctly.

Tape to tape copies are normal and typical. Please consider retrying - and just do a few minutes of test video to confirm that it is working.

If you were doing a digital translation, I could understand a problem - but VHS to VHS should be a straight copy.....
Let us know how the test works. (BTW, I had a bad quality video cable - and had to replace it with another - which worked (and everything would display on my TV but would not copy onto another tape. My expert said that a copy protection thing in the record mode of the VHS recorder was the issue - ONLY a strong signal will be copied.

Code: 31:23....please reinsert tape. everytime i switch it on.


dear

u need to rate me for that ..ok dude....

actually this error is related to s reel i.e, the supply reel of the camcorder and some time when we insert a new tape in camcorder it start giving the error because the amount of tension is more in new tapes as compared to the old ones (used one) . . try to use the old tape u would nt have any problem .

but with new tape u will have these kinds of problem some times , to solve this problem for new tape u need to take the camcorder to near by service center of sony .nd they will align the tape path of your camcorder .

Need unit to put tape into, to play in vcr


What you need is a VHS C adaptor. I did a Google search and found at least 10 sites selling them. Rather than cut and paste, I suggest you go to Google and type in "VHS C Adaptor".

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

Remove tape error message


  1. Condensation is detected – If condensation is detected by the camcorder, the “Remove the Cassette” warning may occur.
  2. Component failure – If an electrical or mechanical component in the camcorder fails, the safety mode may activate to prevent any further damage to the camcorder.
  3. Sand or grit damage – The camcorder’s tape drive mechanism consists of many tiny gears. Sand or grit can cause a gear to jam and stop turning. This will cause the camcorder's safety mode to activate.
  4. Impact damage – If a camcorder is accidentally dropped or bumped against a hard surface, it is possible that a misalignment of the tape drive mechanism may occur.
  5. Liquid damage – If either the camcorder or the tape is exposed to water or any other liquid, a variety of malfunctions may result. Please avoid this situation.
  6. Improper videotape insertion – If a tape is forced into the cassette compartment, or if the cassette compartment is pressed down while the tape is loading, damage may occur to the tape drive mechanism. Please refer to the User's Manual.
  7. Damaged or defective tape – If a tape becomes damaged, please discontinue its use.
Operational Recovery Steps
Depending on the conditions that caused this message to appear, it is possible that the camcorder operation may recover. Please follow these steps:
  1. Eject the videotape
    Insert a new or known good videotape. If the message does not persist, it is possible that the tape was damaged. If the camcorder still displays the message with a new tape, please proceed to step 2.
  2. If condensation had been detected causing the Remove the Cassette warning, remove the cassette, and allow at least one hour for the moisture to dry.

That is the "LOAD" error code.

However, to service the C:31 code, Sony recommends you do the following:

  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds.
  3. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
  4. Turn on the camcorder.
  5. If the error message appears, service may be required.
If your camcorder still shows the same error code, then you'll have to send in your camcorder for service.
