Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV140E Digital Camcorder

Open Question

I own a Sony DCR-TRV260 that displays the C:31:23 error. I took a look inside by the black rollers (looking at them when the door is torward your ching, then this would make the right side roller)and found that there is a (White) plastic part that is tied to a thin metal strip that looks like is some type of spring tensioning. I am not sure where does this part is secure to or how to roll the spring to the correct tension. Also can not see the other end of this spring I can see that rolls around the left side winder.

SOURCE: error code sony dcr trv25 c:31:23

Sony says the unit needs a power reset (error 31). Unplug the camera, remove the battery and wait several minutes before re-attaching the battery and/or AC cable. Then power the camera back up. The 23 code says you need to use a InfoLithium battery-- apparently these are smart batteries that give data back to the camera. These error codes seem to be quite common however, and so a hardware issue may be the case. Some users have said that removing the battery while the camera is powered on will clear the codes. Others advocate "smacking" the camera, I would not however, recommend this. www.sony.com is a good place to look for more information.

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
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.

Had the same error message on my TRV-720, and could not come up with a solution for weeks until I found this website:

http://www.protechcam.com/wwwboard/messages/127.html

Now the fix you will not believe, nor did I at first, but requires you to power off the unit completely and "Smack it" a few times fairly hard.
Now you may do this at your risk, but I swear it fixed mine and all the other people listed at the above web site.
I thought it was a joke - but it works!!

Good Luck!

Hello, I have the sony dcr-trv260 and it will play back video and sound, and record sound, but will not record video. It is just black in both the lsd screen and the smaller one.


Did you examine to see if the lens cover is on?
If it is on remove it. If it is off,you need to go in the menu and select record instead of play.

On the DCR-TRV27 I don't see a black roller on Error C:31:23 on Sony trv27


It probably fail off,which is very common problem, roller should be still inside of the camcorder. You also have to look for small white, lake tubing part that hold pinch roller on the shaft.

Video camera displaying Error code C:31:23


I have been fighting the same problem. I just now picked up the camera and a small rubber roller fell out of the tape door area. I was not sure where it came from but looking closer there are 4 small rods sticking up on the right side inside the area where the tape is located. It looked like this was where the roller went so I placed it on the center rod and replaced the tape. This solved the problem and I am now able to view and recored as before. There most likely is a part that has either fell or broken off or is loose inside the tape area.
