Most probably it is an issue with the disc. If the disc is corrupted, it will display the error message to prevent spoiling the lens of the Camcorder. Please use a different disc and it should resolve the issue.
If the issue persists with different discs, it may require service..
However, I suggest that you reset the Camcorder by pressing the Reset button behind the LCD panel (Near to the USB port) on the Camcorder) Please make sure that you have turned ON the Camcorder while pressing the reset button.
when problem occur while cam is operating, the self-diagnosis function starts working, and may display the service mode display code. in your case, C:31:40, pertains to a part of the cam tape compartment mechanism called the drum that doesn't start up. issues could prevent you from recording, playing back tapes, rewinding or fas forwarding. t/s steps are: try diff tapes esp. w/prev recordings, reset cam (press reset button while cam is on, located just below the menu button, in the panel where the lcd screen goes to), power reset (remove batt and ac adapter and leave cam w/ any power source for at least a minute). if issue persists, unit will require repair. hope this helps.tnx:)
this is how you disable autofocus for this camera, first set cam to camera mode.using touch panel screen:
1.press FN to display PAGE1
3.select and press MANUAL
4.select and press (icon of person) when subject is too close to focus on or (icon of a mountain) when recording distant subject
5.press (return arrow w/OK) to return to PAGE1
hope this info helps.tnx:)
Had the same.after stopped showing anything and the rest was working perfectly. Changed the flex wire connecting camcorder and it's like new. got from the repair shop and did it by miself. Good luck
There is a setup in the MENU turn on the CAM mode then press MENU under CAM RECORD mode select Record continue. I will look in instruction manual it had been long time I left Sony or you can download the instructions manual from Sony Web
