SOURCE: re-attach power source

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......

SOURCE: re-attach the power source flashing

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.

SOURCE: "Re-attach the power source" but tape is stuck, door open

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.

Cannot eject cassette


Remove power source/ battery from camera for couple of minutes, replug/ attach battery and check.
If camcorder still gives error then its mechanical issue in tape mechanism and qualified camera tech will repair it.
Thanks.

Sony handycam DRC-HC42 error C:32:10 re-attach the power source. Can't get tape out


I had the same issue. Disconnected the battery, then plugged in the DC power. It would then allow me to eject the tape, and when I reinserted the battery, the error did not return. Hope it works for you too!

Can't open the dv tape


Solutions * The most frequent cause of this type situation is not having a power source attached, or a depleted battery pack. * Once the power source is available, some models require manually unlatching and opening a cover. * When the cover is fully open, the cassette will eject automatically after a few seconds. * If the tape still will not eject, seek assistance from a Service Facility because you need a special tool to remove the tape without causing further damage.

Cassette Jam


The most frequent cause of this type situation is not having a power source attached, or a depleted battery pack. Once the power source is available, some models require manually unlatching and opening the cassette compartment cover. When the cover is fully open, the videocassette will eject automatically. Please try the following procedures. 1. Attach the power source to the camcorder correctly or use a fully-charged battery pack. 2. Fully-open the cassette compartment cover until it stops while sliding and holding the OPEN/EJECT switch. The videocassette will eject automatically after a few seconds. If the videocassette still will not eject, seek assistance from a Canon Service Facility.
