Question about Sony HVR-Z1 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

Sony z1 powers down restart

I have a problem with my Sony Z1. It is used quite frequently and had been working fine. However, it has developed a problem with its power. Whenever it is switched on, it will power up, stay on for a few seconds, and then automatically shut down, at which point it powers up again. I have tried several batteries, and mains power, so I know the issue isn't the power source. I have been told that it may be a problem with the cicruit board, which could cost more than the cameras value to repair. However I have been advised by someone else that it could be a small problem, but many engineers would claim it is the circuit board as it's easier than tracing the problem back to a part that could costs about 50p. Can anyone advise if they have had a similar problem, and if I should trust the new circuit board claim or not Thanks in advance for any help

It sounds like the tape door is out of alignment, causing stress on the tape and the inside mechanical system.  Requires a visit to the service shop.

The 4-digit error code consisting of an alphabet and numbers, which blinks at 3.2 Hz is dislayed on the screen when any problems occur. This 5-character display indicates the "repaired by:", "block" in which the problem occurred, and "detailed code" of the problem.

The error code C:31:22 and C:31:23 indicates T reel fault and S reel fault respectively. Load the tape again, and perform operations from the beginning.

The error code C:31:40 indicates FG fault when starting drum. Load the tape again, and perform operations from the beginning.

Furthermore, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds then try using the Camcorder.

If the issue persists then service is required.

Hello, I'm afraid your iLink IC is the problem. Unfortunately it is a BGA device and resides on the very expensive VC367 board. Sometimes the IC can be replaced albeit with very specialised IC removal equipment or the board needs replacing. This is also specialised in that all the Z1 data is stored on this board requiring the data to be, first, downloaded to a PC and then uploaded once the new board is fitted. The camera then needs aligning.

Contact me for further details.

Very bad hiss even when power is turned off and battery is removed


If you use a sennheiser check your Squelch is not set to high / low. I use a Z1 and that solved my problem.
