Sony says C31 is a Tape Loading Error. They suggested removing the camera battery. Then re-connect and then re-set the camera back to factory conditions. If it persists it may require attention. May also be a mechanical problem such as is the back Rubber wheel in the proper place and the white plastic lock is not there? flip the camera upside down it's come out (the white plastic lock) then place it BACK


have flashing yellow error, error code C:31:23, - bec4927.jpg

It may also be a bent lever. Try the factory restore first.

I have a Sony PDX-10 and it's giving me two blinking yellow symbols (underlinded triangle and tape with line through it) when I fire it up loaded with a tape. Tried changing with tapes that work fine in...


Hello,
Looking at PDX 10 User Manual Page 232

Your description -

Under lined Triangle

Cassette Ejection needed
Slow Flashing: The Write protect tab exposed

Fast Flashing: Moisture Condensation
Cassette out of tape
Self diagnosis display function activated


Sounds like the diagnosis function maybe your best shot......
Check displayed error codes in viewfinder on Page 231 of the User Manual or let me know if you dont have copy of them.

Tape Symbol Flashing:

Tape near end
No cassette inserted
The write protect tab exposed.

I think this is basically telling you the loading mechanism has a problem, the viewfinder is displaying an error code indicating the nature of the fault..... IF error Code is : E61:........ or E62........ (dots indicate extra numbers) these MUST be referred to Sony Service Centre.

Hope this may help

solution 1: 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. solution 2: Turn off the camcorder. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter. Turn on the camcorder. 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 additional info that might help: According to the manual, the error code C:31:xx:xx means an error that >the owner can fix by himself has occured and that by taking out the >cassette and replacing it or by disconnecting the battery pack and >fixing it back should solve the problem. Error "23" means: "S reel emergency during normal rotation", i.e. the problem is with the tape deck mechanism and specifically the supply reel.

I got the code C:31:22 flashing on the screen. what should i do?


this error pertains to one of the reels (the thing that turns the tape)is malfunctioning.so most likely you'll be having issues w/recording,playing,fast forwarding or rewinding the tape.you can try RESET (press the reset button located inside and beside the eject button in the tape compartment cover, while cam is on).if it doesn't work try POWER RESET (turn cam off,remove the batt,make sure the ac adaptor is not connected.turn power switch to camera or player, and leave w/o power for at least a minute.turn power switch back to off and reinsert batt.check if working).if still you get the error,repair might be needed.hope this helps.thanks:)

When i try to record, it just beebs and won't!


With Sony camcorders, if there is an error, it will display an error code on the LCD screen, usually flashing. Make a note of it, search for your model number and the error code and you can most likely find the solution.
