Display Error C:31:42



When I rewind or play my Hi 8 Tapes on my DCR-TRV110 camcorder, the camcorder stops, makes a beeping sound and displays a message: C:31:42


Unfortunately, I no longer have my manual.  What do you recommend?

The Sony website trouble code sais your Camcorder has a problem and needs a power reset.

The remedy in the SONY troubleshooting guide is copied below.

  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.

How to play tapes not recorded by Sony Handycam DCR-TRV130 Digital-8 Digital Camcorder

It is my understanding that the camera won't playback those formats, timecode or not. There are VCR type units for the HI8 and other formats. They should be cheap on eBay now...

My camcorder won't play back tapes-or rather, it plays them, but they skip. This just started happening, and we have a new camcorder, but I have a lot of H8 tapes I can't get the video off of.

It may be a tape lubrication thing. Wet verses dry.
Some users swear by sticking to one brand.

Sometimes you can get drag or chatter when the lubes are mixed.
It may sort itself out, otherwise it's off to see the local Sony guy.

My sony handycam model no:DCR-TRV110 does not play videos that recorded in tape,but time is moving,please help me

The first thing is to run a cleaning tape through the camera for 8-14 seconds and see if it remedies the situation. If not, the camera has a problem and will need to be repaired.

Hi 8 tapes will only play on a Hi 8 machine. I would recommend you search for a place that will do the video transfer for you. There are several in my town and likely you could find one on the internet.

Playback problems started suddenly

I had the same problem. I fixed it by gently dropping the camcorder on the carpeted floor. I know it sounds silly, but it really works. I've had to do it twice, and it worked both times. I hope it works for you.

Picture and sound is skipping or stuttering during playback. It happens when playing any video.

This was often caused by mixing brands of tape. Do not use head cleaners more than absolutely necessary. More than half a dozen times or so, and heads are toast.

Use quality tapes of the same make/length, from new, and you will be fine. (the coatings on the tapes vary, and can/did interact with each other.)
