Re: error messages

A: try the reset button ( next to the eject button ( you have to press it with a pen)
b: change the internal battery
c: take the tape out, give everything a shake and put the tape back in, make sure the door is firmly closed.
This fixed my problem when I had these error messages.

this error is
"Reset position detect error when stepper iris is initialized"

Turn on the power and set to T (telephoto) end by rotating the
ZOOM manual ring. While observing the iris blades in the
lens, turn on the power again and check the iris blades in the
lens work properly. Inspect the iris drive motor of lens drive
block (Pin qh to ql of CN6602 on the VC-582 board), when
the iris does not operate. Inspect the iris reset sensor of lens
drive block (Pin qd to qg of CN6602 on the VC-582 board),

I have a sony dig 8 trv340 and am receiving an error code of c31:42 what does this mean?


In DCRTRV430 Camcorder, the C:31:42 error message is a Self diagnostic display. This message can be clearly identified by the help of a Sony Authorized service technician. Each of these codes indicates the symptoms and resolutions of the Camcorder. In C:31:42, the issue is with the tape and the tape mechanism.

I suggest that you remove and reinsert the tape to check if it helps. You may also try inserting new tapes in the Camcorder. Please remove the battery and/or power cable, connect, and perform operations from the beginning. You may also try resetting the Camcorder back to factory default after removing the tape.

To Reset the Camcorder, perform the steps below:

? Please open the LCD screen to locate the RESET button.

? To reset the Camcorder, press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.

? Please make sure that the Camcorder is turned on while pressing the reset button.

Also, try turning off the Camcorder and remove the battery pack. Then move the 'Power Switch' of the Camcorder to the ON position

for 1 minute. After about 1 minute, move the 'Power Switch' to the OFF position.

Now reinsert the battery, turn on the Camcorder and check whether it is working fine.

Please reoperate after pressing reset button

When you switch it on the red led will light up but within 10 seconds it will flash and then a message on the screen will come on to tell you to reset then tell you "in service".
This will repeat itself forever to frustrate you no end but I have stumbled onto tricking it into working, ie get the led on without progressing to flash. Try switching it on and as soon the led comes on, switch it off, do this a few times, then leave the switch on and voila it might stay on like it did for me.
Just now I have ran it for an hour, switch it off then after 30 seconds turn it back on and it stays on.
I thick the reset button is all bull. Let me know how it all went or am I all bull for your NV-DS38.

Error message "push the reset switch"

The Panasonic manual for this problem is stupid. It says "Pushing reset button MAY help resolve the problem"...
nothing else-no explanation of possible problem.....worthless.....

Stopped working

Seen loads of these problems. Some get fixed by simply using panasonic tapes, some require cleaning with some alcohol, including the head(cleaning tapes clean only head, not the rest of the mechanism), some by tapping, some by smacking, some take out the battery and put it back, and some are stuck with it ;[ Try finding out what the error code is and post back. To get the error code, you need to hold down the fade/stop button and the record button for 3 secs, the error code should be displayed in the viewfinder, in the top right hand corner. Good luck
