Will it record on a new tape? Will it play a different tape? Have had a similar problem with a different camera. Think it had to do with the record mode / play back. A bit like standard play and long play - are there setting like that you could change?

When i put a tape in to watch,or record,the video camera beeps and C:3123 appears i have tried everything


  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.
  4. Turn on the camcorder.
  5. If the error message appears, service may be required.
I found many people saying that they had this error and "smacked" the camera... and then it started working. This would tell us that it is a mechanical error... so, at your own risk, if the above steps don't work, I would try smacking it a bit, maybe something mechanical is "stuck".

How are you powering the camcorder ? Many will not transfer videos if battery powered, since the battery may fail. Try again with the camcorder mains powered, see if that helps. Have you cleaned the heads with a cotton bud and a little IPA ?

I turn the camera to record and it blinks an icon which resembles ejeciting the tape. It is a triangle over a line. It also blinks "C:31:23" It will not allow me to record. What is it?


You need to try to eject the tape and put it back in the camera. That error means that something has happened with the tape transport and the camera could need a cleaning tape but not necessarily. Try re-inserting the tape. If the error appears again, try a different tape. If the error still appears, run a cleaning tape in the camera on playback for 8-14 seconds (no longer!). Then put a regular tape back in. If you still see the error, there is probably a mechanical problem in the tape transport and the camera will need to be repaired. It's possible it could just need a clean and lube on the mechanical parts, but in any case you will need to take it to a camera shop for an estimate.

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

Screen has error message and won't play tape. What is wrong?


Hi,
This message appears when the loading tape path become misaligned (mechanically unstable). Your camera just need mechanical adjustment from any expert and it will work fine again. Contact any service man for this.

According to the symptom and self diagnostic system the problem is in mechanical section (tape loading section) Therefore camera just need mechanical adjustment and will work fine again. This problem aries when the insertion of the cassette is improper or forced insertion.
Thanks for using fixya.

Recording problem on Sony SLV-R1000


The deck needs a good cleaning. Try using a brand new tape and run it on playback for 20 min or so. You could try using a cleaning tape, but many of them are abrasive. If this doesn't work, you need a deck re-alignment which will cost more than your set is worth.
