Re-attach the power source flashing

My camera wants me to re-attach the power source.  It doesn't matter if I'm using the battery or AC adaptor.  The DV tape holder in the camera will not pop out automatically.  When I do get it to open the camera displays the eject tape symbol.

Re: re-attach the power source flashing

I had the same problem. I took off the battery pack and wiped the it down with a kleenex as well as the socket in the camera where the battery pack connects to. This fixed the problem.

My sony handycam DCR-TRV340E is not charging at all, dont know if its to do with the battery or the AC power adaptor


First, check that the camera switch is in the off (charging) position.
If this is OK, Check the battery output connections for voltage: use a multimeter.
To check the charger, put a load resistor across the output terminals (about 1000 ti 2000 ohms) and again, using a multimeter, check there is a charging voltage. Alternatively, if the camera operates OK with the charger attached and switched on the charger is OK, AND, the problem is then in the charging circuit from camera to battery. If the battery checks OK as in the beginning, then you will need a Sony repair man who needs to know all the results from your testing above.

The ac power adaptor ac-v515 is dead.


I can't find the AC v515 adapter any where! But You can buy the next best thing. A battery charger one that will at least fit an NP-F730 battery. Go on to eBay and type Sony vc1000 and anything related will come up. These chargers can be used in your car and at home, what's more they are not expensive.

Cameras can't upload if low on power. Charge batteries or plug in the ac adaptor to an outlet and try again.

Error Code C:32:11 Tape does not eject


try removing the button cell battery, main battery, and any other power source from the camera and let it sit for one hour. THen using only the AC adaptor, see if the camera works, if it doesn't then you may have to take it to a repair shop, cause the cassette door has malfunctioned.

No power


You may try to check the camera directly from AC adaptor without battery. If possible check the AC adaptor if its providing voltage?

The LCD is flashing eject indicator with error no. C:31.23 ,So before that it was showing reinsert the caset


According to Sony, the 31 problem is one that requires a power reset of the camera. Turn off the camera, remove the battery, remove the AC adapter if it is in use and then wait several minutes before re-attaching the battery and/or power and turning the camera on again.
The 23 problem is a non-Sony InfoLithium battery. Apparently these smart batteries interact with the camera. According to Sony: "Replace the battery in the camcorder with a Sony® InfoLithium battery or connect the supplied AC power adapter."

My EVERIO doesn't respond to controls


First disconnect power source (both battery and AC adaptor) then reconnect it. If that will not correct this situation, try the following reset procedure: press and hold simultaneously for more than 5 seconds both MENU and MODE buttons. This procedure will also restore all default settings in the camera.
