Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV530 Digital Camcorder
How can I remove error code C:21:00. My unit sony DCR-TRV530 was exposed to high humity as indicated by flashing water drop. Unit opened as per owner's manual but error code still flashing
Thanks Ron. Yeomans
For me, the alcohol sensor cleaning didn't work. I did some research on how the sensor works and it turns out the black stuff is conductive in low humidity and resistive in high humidity. That means the circuit need to be cloed to work,, cleaning off the black substrate would only open the circuit furthur, I cant understand why removing the black substrate is working for some people. After cleaning it to no avail, I tried bypassing (shorting) it. To test it I just took an ordinary pencil and filled in some conductive carbon where the black square was. And it worked. I could have bypassed the sensor by shorting the 2 solder contacts, but to reach it I would have to take it all apart. I'll make the bypass permanent when I have a day free.

FINALLY FIXED and ITS FREE! Typical Sony quality. I've a PC9 and have been smacking it every since for over 2 years until I found this link (http://www.dvinfo.net/forum/sony-hvr-a1-hdr-hc-series/88013-moisture-condensation-2.html) !!
This will work for most Sony DV camera more than 6 years old.
No need to abuse your Sony anymore especially in public!!
Don't throw away a perfectly good camera . Even though its old. reuse recycle ... !

Try depressing the small "Reset" button with the camera power on. Use a sharp pencil/ball point pen to do that. It resets the logic in the camera and may help.
