Sony GV-D1000 Mini DV VCR - Does Not Power On...

When I power the switch to "on", the green light comes on in the POWER ON/CHARGE for about 3 seconds and then turns off. The machine does not turn on. Any suggestions?

Sony gvd 1000 wont work comes up with code c 31.10

The 31 indicates a motor movement problem. The 10 indicates which one. I don't have the manual handy so I can't look up the specific motor movement that is wrong. These units are tricky to work on and are not DIY repair machines. Please seek an authorized service centor for this repair.

For Info Lithium Battery only

I was having the same problem with a sony GV-D1000 which I don't even use a battery with. I use an AC adapter. Someone suggested that the contacts might be dirty, so I unplugged the small connector that plugs into the back of the deck and wiped it hard with my t-shirt. It seems to work fine now. SO try cleaning the contacts (wherever your adapter or battery connects with the deck or camera.)
