A C31:40 error indicates that the drum (the spinning video head) is either not spinning or is not supplying a signal to the main computer to tell the computer it is spinning. It could be a bad drum or a loose connection. It will likely take a qualified technician to verify the diagnosis.

our MV800 was doing the the same so i "accidentally" dropped it (i got a bit frustrated and it was out of warranty) and now it works fine. please note it dropped about half a meter on carpeted floor while it was off.
Hope this helps

Tips for a great answer:
My name is Rick and I am the owner and technician of Discount Camera Repair. The problem you are experiencing can be repaired fairly inexpensively but will require disassembly by a qualified technician. The camera will need to be disassembled to remove the tape mechanism and then the tape mechanism will need to be disassembled to repair. If I can be of any help please call or email me and I'll get the camera working for you.
