Sony Handycam PC101E Record button/power switch...

Hi all - first posting here! I have a Sony Handycam PC101E that I inherited from my Dad which has just started to show an irritating problem with the power switch/record button. When recording it will occasionally just keep 'bing-bonging' as if the record button id being repeatedly pressed... sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn;t do it... Any thoughts? Cheers Greg

My DCR-pc101e just stopped recording video. audio only

Have you tried resetting your camera by pressing the reset button on the right side looking from behind. I understand you have to reset after removing the battery and also make sure you are not connected to the mains power supply.

Sony dcr-pc101e c31-22 is flashing and camera wont work

Hi, not sure if C31:22 is the same or similar as the error code C31:23, but I had C31:23 and seem to have fixed it....for now. after trying all types of battery removals, the thing that fixed it was:

eject the tape
Gently wiggle (with your finger) the black roller with the thin white tube as its spindle
Pressed reset button
re-installed the tape

The error disappeared and has not been seen since.

Driver for sony dcr-pc101e

Check Sony Support Europe web page and see downloads.
I'm afraid Vista 64 bit has no support for DCR-PC101E yet.
