Question about Sony DCR-VX2000 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Shuts off while recording

I use my Sony for Video for my website. While I am recording my daily video, after about 3 minutes, the camera just shuts off out of nowhere. I usually only have a 2.5 minute podcast, so it doesn't mess me up most of the time, but I just can't figure out why it shuts itself off. Any answers as to why?

My sony Handycam DCR-DVD805 is not working. On pressing reset it works for 2-3 minutes and again shuts down. What may be the problem? Can it be set right at home or needs repair.

The cameras that use DVD disks have a 89% break down rate, the media simply is not made for things we carry around like cameras, just grab a camera with tape that records your great movie films, the DVD idea is a sales idea from camera makers to grab your money, but the media simply does not seem to work mostly on cameras.

Video recording shuts down after 15 seconds

I just looked at my Sony DCR-TRV30. Not the same, but perhaps similar. My camera records lengthy videos on tape and only brief videos on memory stick. I suggest that you stick to tape for video.
Good Luck

Handycam says C:31:22

error 31:22 means camera mechanism has error in take-up reel section and micro processor isn't receiving reel signal so it shuts down playback/ record function immediately. look into take-up reel section of mechanism.
