Question about Sony Dvcam DSR-PD170 DV Digital Camcorder
I am one of the lead technicians at SUPERB BROADCAST . We are a repairshop that specializes in only Sony camcorders and VTRs
Theproblem that you are experiencing with your Sony PD170 sounds like youare experiencing a problem with the mechanical section of the camcorder.My first thought is possibly try to change the tape,if the problem persist then use the cleaning tape and play back it for 10 sec . in VTR mode. If the problem still arises then you need to contact the near by service centre because C :31 : 40 is related to the Head assy. of the camcorder ,it doesnt produce proper FG.
U MAY NEED TO REPLACE THE HEAD ASSY.

C:31:40 code shows problem with Drum (video Head) Rotation. Please use another tape as tape got stuck with drum in threading / loading.
If problem still remain, Drum circuit needs to be checked by qualified tech.
