Hi,

Initially, I would suggest replacing/charging the batteries. This is to eliminate the possibility that is a battery/charging issue. Additionally, pls try to verify that the battery contacts both on the Sony and the batteries themselves are clean. You may need to scrape them off to assure positive contact. Further on the camera's battery terminals, you may need to slightly bend them (or stretch if spring type) to provide more pressure in the contacts (this is of course if the design will allow you to).

Should the above be not corrective, then in most likelihood, it is an internal electronic error.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Error C:04:00


  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.

Battery life?


Here is a replacement source

The batteries are covered under warranty for three years. Sony batteries are know for not keeping a good charge after a few years.

If there not holding a charge, they wouldn't appear on the LCD screen at all. I the AC power is working fine, then that probably isn't the source for not getting a charge.

You could try lightly scraping the contacts on the battery and see if that makes a difference and recharge them.

Sony DCR-TRV320


Try this (seems to be a standard thing from Sony):
  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 an error message appears, service may be required. If the error ,message starts with an "E" it needs to be sent in.
Go to any large photo shop and get an estimate.

Had the same thing happen to me. Went out and bought a new battery and it, too, does not charge. Apparently something messed up with the in-camera charging system. It will charge for several minutes (charge light illuminated) and then the charge light goes dark. Battery gage shows that there is virtually no time left on either battery (old or new). Anyone have any ideas other than a trip back to Sony?

Data code problem pleeeeeeese heeeelp......


Here are some programs that might help you with your problem : DV Sub Maker (Freeware) from Mike Laba aka Krong makes DVD subtitles from DATECODE in SUB or SST format which can be used in Scenarist and ReelDVD. DV Date Time Changer can change the DATECODE. And the test version of Play DV shows the DATECODE when playing DV AVI files. See http://video2dv.com/ DV Date, (old name DVRecDate) a shareware Adobe Premiere plugin from Ilia Topolnitski stamps DATECODE in videos. A DVD Subtitler (also shareware) exists too! See http://dve.teletex.ru/
