Does the error appear when tape is inserted? Eject the mechadeck, take out the tape, try blowing hot air using hair blower for a short while, just to dry if there is any dew inside, if still the same, have the capstan motor replaced, thanks
I had the same problem. First, depress the reset button, located on the camera body (where the LCD screen closes over it). It is hard to see at first. It is important that the camera be set to the OFF position. When the camera is whirring after the reset, then hit the EJECT button so the tape comes out. Take the tape out and insert it back. That's it. My camcorder worked fine and let me record or plaback once I followed those steps.
This is a common problem. The code indicates that the sensor for the supply reel has indicated lack of motion. If you have a cleaning tape, try it first because if the head drum hesitates, reel error codes often appear. If this doesn't help you are in for a service situation. There are other electronic failures that can cause false codes and operations in many cases. These usually involve cable connection failure. You still need a qualified servicer.
This is a common failure in this model and unfortunately will not be resolved without a qualified servicer. The error code indicates a message for lack of reel motion. Most often it is an electronic connection problem and not an actual reel problem.
( c : cassette : 30 capstan fg ) ; your capstan
motor is stalling - try ( other brand ) new
tapes and gently ! swaying camera from side
while loading - if loads , your tape mechanism
is dirty or is going out of alignment ;
if the camera will not unload tape ? the
capstan motor may be failing ( connector is
loose , corroded ) or - it is jammed and it
needs . . . disassembly . . . to complete
