C:31:42 shows following error..
FG fault during normal drum operations.
Its related to drum assembly (video head) in camcorder and possible reason can be drum stuck with some thing, no power to drum motor etc.

Here is the solution to your problem:  C:31:42 = FG (film guide) fault during normal drum operations. Load the tape again, and perform operations from the beginning! Hope this helps.

Hi,
If video head got clogged then camcorder wont read tape in playback so result comes as blue screen.
Please use video head cleaning tape and clean video head of camcorder. This will solve your problem.
Video-8 head cleaning tape is available with amazon.com
Thanks.

Error c:31:42


This code means
"FG fault during normal drum operations. Load the tape again, and perform operations from the beginning."

'C' indicates consumer-fixable problem.
'31' indicates the fix method (remove casette).
The 'FG' signal from the capstan motor is the tachometer signal that the camera uses to monitor the rotation of the capstan.
