Question about Sony Handycam DCR-VX2100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Sony DCR-VX2100 will Not Power on By Battery Unitl I connect AC power adapter. I connect the battery to the camera, turn it on and nothing happens as if the battery is dead, even though it's fully charged. If I then connect the AC adapter the camera works fine, and will run off the battery if I disconnect the AC. Then I can pretty much use the camera all day, once I store the camera for a few days and connect the battery, I again have to connect the AC to get the camera going. Thoughts?

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."
