Sony is pretty secretive about the :23 code. It can't be found anywhere. However, to service the C:31 code, Sony recommends you do the following:
If your camcorder still shows the same error code, then you'll have to send in your camcorder for service.

You can replace the LCD panel but will probably have to get it from a scrap EOS 300 and then work out how to do it yourself.
No camera repairer will touch your model though: it was a very cheaply made model designed and built on Canon's behalf by Kodak. As such it was really only designed to last up to five years and to then be thrown away. They simply aren't designed to be disassembled and repaired so other parts may break during the work and are quite literally worthless on the second hand market. When they do sell it's usually to those who make the mistake of thinking they're getting an EOS 300d...
It's not all doom and gloom though; because they're worthless perfectly good functional examples are sometimes available on FreeCycle and can be obtained for next to nothing on auction websites. Usually the only value is in the lens; cheaply made kit lenses are worth peanuts, but sometimes they come with a decent bit of glass which still retains a resale value.
I hope that my reply has given you a few realistic options regarding your camera and that you now understand why nobody else wants to repair it. Please take a moment to rate my answer.
