Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV27 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

Error code My camcorder is constantly flashing the error code C:31:22. The only help I can find is to remove the battery for 60 seconds and then try again. Each time I go into FastForward, 5 seconds later the camcorder displays the error message. Is there anything else that can be done to remedy this situation?

    Yes - me too - Same problem. Screen flashes C:31:22 with a yellow flashing symbol of a arrow up. Bought some new JVC mini dv tapes from BB and when I started using them I started getting this error. Thought it was the tape at 1st but tried another new one and then an old one (known good) and I still get the error.

    My camcorder has the same problem (no VCR/ Camera Mode  working), with the error code c:31:23 with the yellow flashing arrow icon.  Nothing seems to be working to fix the problem.

I had the same problem with my sony dcr-trv310 8mm digital handycam. Out of nowhere, it started beeping and flashing an error code C something with a blinking up arrow. I found a very crude, but effective fix: just hit the bottom of the camcorder pretty hard a few times with an open palm. I found this fix on a different website and thought I'd share it. I thought my camcorder was dead, but just giving it a few good slaps/palm strikes brought it right back to life. Pretty strange and probably less than ideal, but it worked for me. ;-)

If your Sony camcorder displays a tape transport or mechanical error code always try resetting the camcorder. This is done by removing the battery or ac power, wait 10 seconds, reapply the battery or ac power and try again. If it still goes into error try another tape. The camcorder will not always display an exact error code. Sometimes you may see an error message such as, "Reinsert the cassette", on the LCD screen. This is the camcorders way of saying, "Take the tape out and try again." Try reloading the same tape as well as a new tape. If the camcorder is still going into error this means it is time to send it in for service or repair.
The camcorder may also sometimes display a "Reattach Power Source." This is the camcorders way of saying,"Try resetting my system,so I can try again." Many people mistaken this error and think they have a problem with the battery or ac adapter. This is not true and has nothing to do with your battery or ac adapter. Reset the camcorder by removing the battery or ac power, wait 10 second, reapply the battery or ac power. If the error reappears the unit needs to be serviced or repaired.
