Take out the battery and the AC cord.
Turn the camera on (tape, memory, edit settings) for 15 seconds.
Turn camera to off setting.
Plug battery or AC cord back in.

After doing this, my camera accepted the tape - door stayed shut and tape descended into the camera.

Have you tried cleaning the camera with a cleaning cassette.

You can buy one wherever they sell cameras and you just run it in the machine once or twice and it should start working.

Please let me know if you need any additional help

Thank you for using Fixya and Good luck

When i try to close the handycam door, it will close but it won't go down


There is a switch inside the tape mechanism that tells the camcorder the cassette compartment is closed and to retract into the camera. It is the most likely cause for this malfunction and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.


If this response has been of any help to you, please be sure and give a positive vote for me on FixYa.com.

error 31 is some kind of a problem with the cassette compartment, it's either won't eject it right now, or it's stuck otherwise. try to eject, if doesn't work, try "reset" button, if still no luck, replace the cassette compartment
