Okay I fixed my camcorder. I did a ggogle search and came across this solution which worked...I strongly suggest you do this. I whacked it two times on each side with the palm of my hand. IT WORKS NOW! I guess sony is aware of this malfunction and this is probably how they fix it....The error code is gone the tape plays. And it didn't cost me a penny.... Good luck and let me know if it worked for anybody else......

I had the same problem. I took off the battery pack and wiped the it down with a kleenex as well as the socket in the camera where the battery pack connects to. This fixed the problem.

I had the same problem. First, depress the reset button, located on the camera body (where the LCD screen closes over it). It is hard to see at first. It is important that the camera be set to the OFF position. When the camera is whirring after the reset, then hit the EJECT button so the tape comes out. Take the tape out and insert it back. That's it. My camcorder worked fine and let me record or plaback once I followed those steps.

apply a DC voltage of 5v to the tape motor at the bottom of the camcorder. you'll find two little semi-hemispheres on top of motor. trial and error to figure out which is positive.
