I have the same problem and it is fixed! I laughed when I first read this but it does work! Take off your battery from the back of the camera, turn it over and give it a nice firm wack. Put battery back in and it WILL get rid of your error and work. I've tried the hair dryer before and it has worked but this time for me it did not.. It truly works... Hope your as happy as I was when it worked....

Re: error code c:21:00
It means your camera is detecting moisture that why c21:00 is appearing then try to warm the camera using a hair blower you should open the lid
cover of the mechanical.......... turns off the camera and unplugged
the ac adaptor..if you using the battery take it out ... then place
your hand to the mechanical to sense the heat of the camera when you
using the hair blower and when you feel too hot then stop the
blower.... doing this must not exceed 10 second...... then wait at
least 1 minute to cold down the camera and put the adaptor or the
battery then power on the camera.... if you doing this and nothing
happen....i suggest you to go to the service center for replacing the

I don't know what this error code means but I have managed to remove tapes which stuck in a VCR and cannot be ejected. Whether you do this is purely up to you, but it's usually possible to remove the casing (carefully!) so that you can get to the tape-handling section. Then it's a matter of gentle probing & trial and error to get the machine to release its hold on the tape. Look for a series of mechanically linked parts which are driven by motor but activated by a microswitch tripped by action of inserting the tape. Just don't strain the linkages and if you remove anything make a note of where it came from.
HI, ERROR CODE E03 MEANS THE THE TAPE IN YOUR CAMCORDER IS TOO SLACK,
ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS EJECT THE TAPE & TIGHTEN IT USING YOUE THUMB
LIKE I DID, ONCE I PUT THE TAPE BACK IN THE ERROR HAD GONE ( FOR EVER I
You will not find the list of the error codes on the internet. I know that Error Code: 0x81 is a "Reel" problem as I was just told by Sony Support. You should call them, have you serial number at hand when you do so. Check http://sony.storagesupport.com/ for a Telephone contact number.
I had a similar problem with a Panasonic VCR. It would not eject the tape and gave an error code. I found that the door does not quite fully open, so that the top of the tape hits the door and cannot eject. If I turn off and then turn on the VCR the error code disappears. Then I press the eject button and simultaneously hold the door fully open with one finger until the tape starts to eject and clears the door.
C:31:40 is "FG fault when starting drum." In plain terms, the video head assembly is not producing a feedback signal that tells the control circuitry that the heads are spinning. Most probable cause is a bad drum assembly, but check to make sure the flex cable going to the drum is properly seated.
If you removed the tape carriage assembly, gear timing is probably off, assuming it is gear driven. Being one tooth off will prevent things from working properly. Gears will often have a mark (like an arrow or dot) which must be lined up with each other, in a mode specified in manufacturer service literature.
Another possibility is sensors. There are sensors (usually optical) which tell the logic when the tape is properly loaded. If one of these is broken, or otherwise non-functional, logic circuitry will go into error mode, and, in this case, eject tape & display an error code.
Lastly, check your mode switch. This tells the logic what position the mechanicals are in (gears/levers/slides). Again, if this is awry, you will have an error condition.
