Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

SOURCE: Sony DCR-TRV30 Error Code 31:23

First, you have to disassemble the camcorder to get to the mechanism. Then once you get the mechanism separated from the rest of the unit, the cassette basket or tape loading mech has to be removed. Once you remove that, there is a dress panel with the tape sense LED attached that will have to be reomoved. Behind the dress panel is a swing gear that drives the reels. The swing gear depends on friction from a clutch behind the gear (but it's part of the gear). the reason it stops working is that the clutch wears out so the gear won't swing and engage the reels (Sony calls it a "gooseneck gear" p/n X-3950-364-1) Replace the gooseneck gear and that SHOULD take care of your problem. Also check to make sure the reelshaven't been bent, this sometimes happens if you "misload" a tape. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

The camera doesn't need drivers, but it does need an application that will take DV input. If you have a Mac iMovie will do that, provided you have the FireWire cable for it.

I have problem with my pd 170 when i push recording switch it gos on paus mood


There are three buttons for recording. Please try the other two buttons ( one is on the top, other is under the handle) if the recording starts with any of the buttons, then your main button will be faulty. You have to get it replaced.

Hope it helps. Don't forget to rate me.

Thanks for using FixYa.

DSR 25


C:31:23 on a DSR-25 indicates a supply reel problem, most likely caused by a defective cassette housing. Best repair solution is to send it to an authorized Sony repair center.
