SOURCE: Error code C:31:40

I hate to admit it but yes, an internet search on the subject yielded that "smacking" the device from the bottom (cassette) side solved the problems of many people. I followed the instructions (instructions? just slap it!) and after my second trial, I am ashamed to admit that it started working...

My first thought would be: If you repaired an emissions hose, take the car back to Auto Zone (or another parts supplier) and let them tell you what code comes up now. You eliminated one problem, now you have to find another.
I wouldn't do a fuel pump without more information.

I have a Sony PDX-10 and it's giving me two blinking yellow symbols (underlinded triangle and tape with line through it) when I fire it up loaded with a tape. Tried changing with tapes that work fine in...


Hello,
Looking at PDX 10 User Manual Page 232

Your description -

Under lined Triangle

Cassette Ejection needed
Slow Flashing: The Write protect tab exposed

Fast Flashing: Moisture Condensation
Cassette out of tape
Self diagnosis display function activated


Sounds like the diagnosis function maybe your best shot......
Check displayed error codes in viewfinder on Page 231 of the User Manual or let me know if you dont have copy of them.

Tape Symbol Flashing:

Tape near end
No cassette inserted
The write protect tab exposed.

I think this is basically telling you the loading mechanism has a problem, the viewfinder is displaying an error code indicating the nature of the fault..... IF error Code is : E61:........ or E62........ (dots indicate extra numbers) these MUST be referred to Sony Service Centre.

Hope this may help

Hi Jeany,
Please see the detail below for the said error codes C31:23 & C31:22

According to the symptom and self diagnostic system the problem is in mechanical section (tape loading section) Therefore camera just need mechanical adjustment and will work fine again. This problem aries when the insertion of the cassette is improper or forced insertion.

Error code C:31:40


After looking up the error code C:31:22, I saw all of the solutions for slapping the side of the camera. Slapped it 4 times, then the error code switched to C:31:23. Same solution... Whacked it 4 times, then the error code switched to C:31:40. Again, whacked it 4 times. Opened it up, turned it upside down and a rubber roller dropped out of the camera. I could see where it went, snapped it down on its metal peg and it works fine. Looks like its the rubber rollers that guide the tape that gets stuck. Before whacking it, make sure the RUBBER roller moves freely. Good luck!!!

Hi
See if this works--If you are on battery there may not be enough power .Charge the battery or use the the mains power through the transformer and see if it works.

I need Handy Help!!


The only thing I can find on this (and its silly sounding I know) is the following: 1) Moisture condesnation build up, leave the door open for 1 hour or more 2) The tapes you are using have write protection enabled
