Sony handycam CCD-TRV43 troubleshooting

Hi! I have a Sony handycam CCD-TRV43 8mm that all of the sudden started behaving very weird. When I want to record or playback it stops after a few seconds, beeps several times and there is a yellow sign in the centre, looks like an eject sign, that keeps flashing as well as a C:31:23 code flashing in the upper right-hand corner. I looked up the error code in the manual and it says it needs to be taken in for service by an authorized dealer, but the camera is old (at least for the current technology)and I am actually looking at upgrading to a digital camera instead. However, I would not mind having this camera around for the kids to make their own movies with. Needless to say, I don't want to spend a ton of money on fixing it and wonder if there is anything I can do myself? Grateful for any reply, Anna.

My sony ccd-trv43 works fine except the lcd panel appears defective. What can be done and at what cost? All that shows up is a black object in the shape of a leaf. It is also visible when the camera is...

This from what your saying sounds like the shutter is stuck partly open between frames, where is would never ever be seen, has the camera been knocked? is it stored in damp area in the house? I wonder when this happened, maybe is would be good to remove the battery, open the film door department, and leave it in warm area for 24 hours.
Then put the fully charged bat back and see if that is better.

Yes It Is Possible.
1. Cable options you can use S-video or RCA.
2. VHS payer that has a recording option. Make sure that it supports the Sony Handycam 8mm.
3. The procedure on how to transfer the 8mm to VHS is the same as how you view your video on the TV.
4. S-video or RCA should be connected on the Handycam and the other end is on the TV.
