SOURCE: Not receiving power from the battery, but getting it from the power adapter

Check for corrosion on the battery contacts, If you find some clean it using a pencil eraser. Otherwise you're looking at an internal malfunction that prevents the cam to draw power from the batteries. Some transistor needs replacing, if you can get to a lab that has experience working on these, shouldn't be too expensive. Good luck

SOURCE: HDR-HC1 Sony camcorder- reinsert the cassette error message

Bill,

The problem is with the S-reel. Take the tape out, remove the battery, and give it a slight bump. This usually fixes the issue for a couple of weeks. I haven't heard of any permenant fixes. I took my cam into circuit city (before they closed) twice for the same issue. Very frustrating when you don't know what the issue is.

SOURCE: my hitachi camcorder says I need an AC adapter/charger

Hi Riannasmail,
You need a camcorder to charger DC cable,it looks like a battery with a trailing cable that has a DC plug on the end that plugs into the Hitachi battery charger.If you are in the USA you should be able to buy one for about $8 to $12,if you live in UK you will be ripped off at about £24.
I made my own adaptor and charger system for less than £20,If you need more info please contact me.

If your Sony camcorder displays a tape transport or mechanical error code always try resetting the camcorder. This is done by removing the battery or ac power, wait 10 seconds, reapply the battery or ac power and try again. If it still goes into error try another tape. The camcorder will not always display an exact error code. Sometimes you may see an error message such as, "Reinsert the cassette", on the LCD screen. This is the camcorders way of saying, "Take the tape out and try again." Try reloading the same tape as well as a new tape. If the camcorder is still going into error this means it is time to send it in for service or repair.
The camcorder may also sometimes display a "Reattach Power Source." This is the camcorders way of saying,"Try resetting my system,so I can try again." Many people mistaken this error and think they have a problem with the battery or ac adapter. This is not true and has nothing to do with your battery or ac adapter. Reset the camcorder by removing the battery or ac power, wait 10 second, reapply the battery or ac power. If the error reappears the unit needs to be serviced or repaired.

solution 1: 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. solution 2: Turn off the camcorder. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter. Turn on the camcorder. If the error message appears, service may be required. If your camcorder still shows the same error code, then you'll have to send in your camcorder for service additional info that might help: According to the manual, the error code C:31:xx:xx means an error that >the owner can fix by himself has occured and that by taking out the >cassette and replacing it or by disconnecting the battery pack and >fixing it back should solve the problem. Error "23" means: "S reel emergency during normal rotation", i.e. the problem is with the tape deck mechanism and specifically the supply reel.

Hi,

Sony is pretty secretive about the :23 code. It can't be found anywhere. However, to service the C:31 code, Sony recommends you do the following:

  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.
OR

This may seem silly, but it worked for me. I found this on another discussion forum. 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. Surprisingly it worked for me

Hope this is helpful

ERROR MESSAGE C 31:23


The error code is part of a self diagnosis feature of your cam. This particular code refers to something being wrong which you can fix yourself. The steps you should take, involve removing tape, and reinserting. removing power adapter plug and reinserting, remove battery pack and reinsert...
power down before each step, and power up again to check working status. The result of these checks should allow you to narrow down the problem.

You may have to look at trying a new battery, or replacing the cassette, or replacing power cord, or you just had not properly hooked something up, or the cassette wasn't properly seated.

These codes and their meaning can be found in your user guide, or manual. Good Luck!
