Handy cam hi8 dcr

Try removing the battery and charging it. Then put the battery back on the camera. This will reset the cassette system. The cassette should open or close depending upon what status it is in. Once you get the camera to eject fully, clean your heads with a dry head cleaner cassette for Hi8 video. If your camera is still eating tape, could be a broken pin or damaged heads.

I can't watch back my recorded cassette, on my camcorder? i'm getting an error message C31 23

Sony is pretty secretive about the :23 code. It can't be found anywhere. However, to service the C:31 code, Sony recommends you do the following:

  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds.
  3. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
  4. Turn on the camcorder.
  5. If the error message appears, service may be required.
If your camcorder still shows the same error code, then you'll have to send in your camcorder for service.

My Sony DCR-TRV33 won't accept a cassette. It will close itself up without a cassette tape in place, but not while a cassette is inserted. I have tried several different tapes, so it is not the cassette.

Hi wnwatkins3,

Have the same problem here. Bought my TVR33 in 2003, and its still
a good cam with 1 megapixel. But since 1 month the tape won't load. I can insert any tape in the cassette, but it won't close. Without a tape it closes fine.
My only option is to send it to frsbenelux to fix it for a few hundred euros. Hoping to find a solution on the net, i will share with ya.

My Sony DCR-PC0-109 had been working just fine. Then one day I was checking to see the available space on my tape, and the camera would not insert the cassette. I tried another cassette, thinking that was...

It seems that your cassette holding alignment has been disturb... Since Sony does not provide service manual, at home we can try our luck only....
Check out this, while inserting cassette analyse that which side of cassette is stucking and try to figure out causes for the same, that means check whether there is any displacement has taken place....

I'm trying to clean the heads on my TRV 950, I purchased a cleaning cassette and this error code appreas on the lcd c:31:22

Follow these steps to resolve the issue:

Step 1: Remove the cassette and insert it again , then operate your Camcorder.

Step 2: Try using different cassette.

Step 3: Try resetting the Camcorder.

[Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.]

Please locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit.

Step 4: Try to power reset the Camcorder and check if it helps to resolve the issue. Power Reset the Camcorder by removing the batteries from the Camcorder and inserting it after 1 minute.

Step 5: Service is required.

Sharp Viewcam VL-AH151U keeps saying "eject cassette" why is that? How or where can i send this to get fixed?

Assuming the record tab is in the correct position, download the manual for the VL-AH150U, very close to the 151U.
Page 10 of the manual shows the normal reasons for the "eject cassette" message. If not, I would call Sharp support at
1-800-BE-SHARP (237-4277) for referral to a local repair center.
Let me know if this helps.

TRV285 E, Insert cassette msg is appearing

I also had a similar problem. There was a message appearing "re-insert the cassette". I contacted Sony India. They advised to reset the Handycam (there is a button 'Reset' under the LCD when it is closed). After doing the Reset the message disappeared and it is working fine at the moment. I also checked up a forum for the message. A lot of people having the same problem were suggesting to whack the camcorder on the cassette side. Although i did not have to resort to it.
