I also had a similar problem. There was a message appearing "re-insert the cassette". I contacted Sony India. They advised to reset the Handycam (there is a button 'Reset' under the LCD when it is closed). After doing the Reset the message disappeared and it is working fine at the moment. I also checked up a forum for the message. A lot of people having the same problem were suggesting to whack the camcorder on the cassette side. Although i did not have to resort to it.

A malfunction other than the above that you can service has occurred.

I'm trying to clean the heads on my TRV 950, I purchased a cleaning cassette and this error code appreas on the lcd c:31:22


Follow these steps to resolve the issue:

Step 1: Remove the cassette and insert it again , then operate your Camcorder.

Step 2: Try using different cassette.

Step 3: Try resetting the Camcorder.

[Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.]

Please locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit.

Step 4: Try to power reset the Camcorder and check if it helps to resolve the issue. Power Reset the Camcorder by removing the batteries from the Camcorder and inserting it after 1 minute.

Step 5: Service is required.

Error C31:40 will not take in a cassette


After not using my camera (Sony HVR-V1U) for one week, I took it out for an assignment but the error keeps coming up C:31:40 asking me to eject the cassette. The camera never gave me problems before this.I have tried smacking it at the bottom with the flat of my hand, flowing it with a hair dryer, shaking it, opening the cassette door for hours but nothing seems to work. The sony technician says I may have to send it in for repairs can any one help before I have to resort to this?

Reinsert cassette


Turn the unit off and hit the back of the camera twice near the battery compartment with the palm of your hand. Sounds crazy but it worked with my camcorder Sony DCR-TRV480. Problem started when I used 8MM Head Cleaner. I think the roller got stuck inside camcorder. The trouble code came up C:31:22. Hope this helps.

Cannot playback hi8 ccd trv107e pal


Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
