    I have the very same camera and this very same problem just started with my video camera. Can anyone out there help????

  • manilacarol Mar 09, 2009

    I just tried to download my daughter's track meet and it only captured a mili-second before this exact error code came up on my camcorder and Sony Vaio. Prior to that attempt, I could rewind and play back the recorded video footage. Now, not only can I NOT CAPTURE the critical video footage - I can't even play ANY of my prior DIGITAL 8 tapes on the DCR TRV 480 ! Please help ASAP :(

Try taking out the battery and plugging in the charger with no battery. That did it for me.

SOURCE: error :c3122

I assume this is a Sony camcorder since you did not provide brand or model information. The error you listed is a T reel fault, caused by the microprocessor not receiving pulses from the takeup reel on the mechanism. There are several things that can cause this:
a bad tape
a bent reel
a bad reel pulse sensor on the mechanism
some other mechanism fault not allowing the takeup reel to turn

SOURCE: HDR-HC1 Sony camcorder- reinsert the cassette error message

Bill,

The problem is with the S-reel. Take the tape out, remove the battery, and give it a slight bump. This usually fixes the issue for a couple of weeks. I haven't heard of any permenant fixes. I took my cam into circuit city (before they closed) twice for the same issue. Very frustrating when you don't know what the issue is.

SOURCE: Sony DCR-HC38 error C:31:22 re-insert tape.

Sony is a ******* piece of **** corporation that has foisted their name on professionals and consumers as being the epitome of high technology for all forms of media.  They are, in fact, scam artists that have perfected the art of programmed obsolescence and early life failures for their equipment.  Because I have been a professional video/audio engineer for 30 years, I have been forced to own and use more Sony gear than I am comfortable admitting to.  There is NO answer to your dilemma because it is a defect programmed into the circuitry of Sony DV-Cams that will ultimately force you to take the machine in for repairs...again and again and again and again....

Do your self a huge favor and smash that piece of **** with a sledge hammer right now.  Then, go out and buy a Canon.  Great products and great tech support.  Sorry I couldn't solve your problem for you.  But, I am an engineer and I can't even solve this one myself.

Reinsert cassette message


Believe it or not, after having the same problem "re-insert cassette" and "reattach power source", and after talking to Sony and them telling me it would be $111.00 to repair, I hit mine with the palm of my hand twice on each side and twice on the back by the battery and it actually worked--haha Go Figure!!
