Question about Sony DCR-SR60 30GB PAL Handycam Digital Camcorder
It doesnt matter whether I turn the unit off or push the reset button or take the battery out and back in, the camcorder screen stays "stuck" on the clock set screen. Pressing "off" or "ok" on the screen is non-responsive. I am unable to record, playback, take photos or anything else. The up and down arrows work to change the time zone but that is all I can make it do. The camcorder is currently unusable. It was working fine up until this problem mysteriously arose.
if all the indicators i.e. battery condition, play mark, counter, etc are visible on the screen then it can be a simple problem of dirty video head. try using a head cleaning cassette or do the head cleaning manually, Open the cover by removing three screws on the right hand side next to the viewfinder. Slide it little towards front and pick it up. The video head will be visible.

How many times did you clean the head? and what with? often you can irrepairably damage the head on these machines by overcleaning. How much difference did the head cleaning make? What was "bad" about the bad tape? was it old/got wet/left in sun/etc....? Are you sure none of the missing screws are still in the machine? Are you getting the same results if you play back using a different camera/player or have you only tried your camera? Are there any unusual noises when the camera is recording or playing back? - listen really really carefully, in case there is a motor or gearing problem. Waiting for your info :)

I haven't the solution, but this may help some users. The camera has a LCD calibration menu. If LCD doesn't work properly use the remote control to get in to it. Try to calibrate the screen. This may be some help however didn't work for me, because I got no response from LCD panel. To calibrate remove all data (disc and memory stick). Click play/edit button, then use the remote control to p-menu > setup > standard set > calibratio. good luck!

Yes, I solved this!
But you have to be very careful!
In my case, when it was not waorking, I opend only the LCD screen part and carefully put thick paper at the below part where all connection come (at the bottom of the screen).
It mean a thick paper is puttet under the carbon connections.
I screwed back all I opened earlier!
One thing to mention that I turned the cam on when ever I was doing work with that!
It is woring for years! and I am happy to let you know because I also was searching on websites to get it solved. At last I took the resk, and got success!
Hope for the best!

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.
