    This model doesn't have a disc OR a memory card. The error has nothing to do with this. I'm afraid your recommended fix is completely inappropriate for this model.

    Every time I try to record, play, fast-forward, or rewind, it does so for about 3 seconds and then gives me an eject sign.

When i try to use my camcorder there's a flashing light with the eject symbol and it wont record or let me use the video


Flashing eject sign error appears when camcorder got problem in its mechanism, please put another tape and check.
Remove battery from camcorder for couple of minutes, put battery back and try.
Also observe does tape reels turns reverse and forward when tape loaded in mechanism.
If problem still exist, qualified camera tech will fix it because it is not user level repair.

560X Camcorder Handycam won't record or play


This behaviour is relaterd to tape reading / tape detection. You may have a dirty or worn-out head on the video heads drum.
You may try to use a cleaning tape in order to retrieve normal perfoming of your camcorder, BUT you should take care, as cleaning tapes are also abrasive tapes, and the amount of cleaning cycles a video head can support is limited.
Then it should be possible that after cleaning the result is nul or worse (I had this lately on an old Sony Camcorder, it was recording with much losses in the film, after using the cleaning tape it doesn't record any more).
All that means you may repair your camcorder with the cleaning tape, but you may finish it too, if the video heads are too old.

In any case take time to read the cleaning tape user manual, cleaning time is very short (10 seconds generally) and must'nt be overtaken.

Hope you would have the good result !

Sony ccd trv218e, recording & playing back does'nt work


I had that problem also and I found that using smaller tapes helped. I was using the 120 minute tapes, I think they may be too heavy.

Cannot record or play


The C31:22 message indicates that one of the motors inside has failed to turn. This is a safety message and the unit will eject the tape to prevent the tape from getting damaged. Unfortunately, there is little that you can do other than get the unit into a service shop. The repair of this will require dis-assembly of the unit. I would suggest that you either get an estimate for the repair or send the unit to Sony using one of their fixed rate repair options.

Tape will not eject


If you open the eject thingy like normal then look for a small white plastic tap. its located right underneath the "start/stop" text you see on the back end of the camera (where the record-button is). You´ll need something like a small screwdriver or similar. Press it and and the tape ejects like normal. Worked for me. Saved me the repair bill :)

Eject light comes on after I start playing the tape


ksmitheram,

I had the same problem with my camcorder just awhile ago. This can reflect a low battery. Try plugging in the camcorder for a couple of hours without using it. Then try recording or playing back the tape with it plugged in. Unplug it and check again. If this does not work you may have to replace the tape head.
