Purchased a Sony TRV 285 E in Jan2005. Now while starting, a msg appears - insert Cassette. I replced with a new cassette purchased from Authoried Sony show room . the problem is still there, pl advice
i cannot record further.
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.

It seems that your cassette holding alignment has been disturb... Since Sony does not provide service manual, at home we can try our luck only....
Check out this, while inserting cassette analyse that which side of cassette is stucking and try to figure out causes for the same, that means check whether there is any displacement has taken place....
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?
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.
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)
