SOURCE: will not rewind

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:


  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds.
  3. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
  4. Turn on the camcorder.
  5. If the error message appears, service may be required.

If your camcorder still shows the same error code, then you'll have to send in your camcorder for service.

SOURCE: my canon eos 300v lcd screen is dead although rest

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.

SOURCE: camera appears to be recording but on rewind no display

Start by trying a different casette and make sure the switch is in play back position. The switches are so tiny it can be ard o tell which mode is active.

Mamiya M645j film counter not advancing to start when roll loaded


It's a common problem in the 645 - if you want to do it yourself, without a permanent fix, put a DROP ( not a lot ) of lighter fluid, or rubbing alcohol on the tip of a fine screwdriver and apply it to the gear you use to rewind the camera, and turn back and forth a few times. If that doesn't loosen it, it'll have to be disassembled.

Recording stopped working


Beleive the CCD has stopped responding. A cheap way to verify this is to point an infrared remote towards the lens and press a key. This will usually provoke a response from the camera even if all else fails, barring a bad pickup device...accordianman

Rewind on my camera wont turn


Has the rewind knob become unscrewed or just won't turn? It does have to be turned clock-wise to rewind the film. If you would happen to turn it counter-clockwise, it would either jam or the knob itself would become undone from the rewind shaft.
