Sony says the unit needs a power reset (error 31). Unplug the camera, remove the battery and wait several minutes before re-attaching the battery and/or AC cable. Then power the camera back up. The 23 code says you need to use a InfoLithium battery-- apparently these are smart batteries that give data back to the camera. These error codes seem to be quite common however, and so a hardware issue may be the case. Some users have said that removing the battery while the camera is powered on will clear the codes. Others advocate "smacking" the camera, I would not however, recommend this. www.sony.com is a good place to look for more information.

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

Had the same error message on my TRV-720, and could not come up with a solution for weeks until I found this website:
Now the fix you will not believe, nor did I at first, but requires you to power off the unit completely and "Smack it" a few times fairly hard.
Now you may do this at your risk, but I swear it fixed mine and all the other people listed at the above web site.
I thought it was a joke - but it works!!

Sony replaced the flexible board cables (FP-621 and FP-610) on my uncles camera. About 8 months after the repair the camera screen doesn't always turn on. I can get it ti turn on if the lcd is rotated towards the person being recorded. I think it might be a problem with a switch on one of those flexible cables.
