Question about Sony DSR-45 Mini DV VCR

Sony DSR error code C31:30 & C31:23

My Sony DSR 45 player first displayed a C31:30 error message, after following instructions in the manual for a C31:?? command and other suggestions found on line (whacking it), the message went from C31:30 to C31:23.

It still is not working, can anyone help me? All the suggestions I have read from C31:23 have been directed at the Sony Camcorder.
Thanks

    Welcomejee,

    Thanks for the explanation to the error codes. Is there a way to fix this problem without having to send the DVR to Sony for repairs?

Error message 91-1E5


error 91-1E5 is "communication error between system control and DIF microprocessor". look for a loose ribbon cable internally, although component failure is a possibility.

DSR 25


C:31:23 on a DSR-25 indicates a supply reel problem, most likely caused by a defective cassette housing. Best repair solution is to send it to an authorized Sony repair center.

Sony DSR-11 Will Not Recognize Timecode


I think you may have misconfigured something because the problem is not in your DSR-11 try connecting it to a monitor and you will see the time stamp and picture as proof of what I am saying. The problem I think is that your Mac is not processing the time stamp correctly. Try this link first it helped me: Remember follow the instructions ezactly: http://forums.creativecow.net/readpost/35/856108
