This is a capstan code you are getting. It just means the capstan motor which pulls the tape via a toothes belt and reel table ,has stoped when it shouldn't. Lots of things can cause this. I start by cleaning and dring the tape path then check reel torque and see if anything is binding the capstan. I have also seen a flex cable open up on these ls chassis that bring up this code.

    Sony Camcorders before the year 2000 like the TR517 have no reset button (1999)

    I put this 1st option in for those who have more current camcorders, for the TR 517 you must use the 2nd option

Have you tried cycling key for fault codes? Turn ignition to on (not start) then off, then on, then off, then on, leave it on, and count flashes of check engine light.
flash,flash,pause, flash flash, is code 22. 3 flashes, pause, then 5 flashes, would be code 35, etc. See what you get, & get back to us with them if you need more help.
