I would take it back to Radio Shack and demand your money back. I would do some research on sony's website and find the right cleaner for you camera.

If it is an old tape which has been used before, there may be creases caused where the pinch wheel pressed against the roller. Try again with a brand new tape. If this is not the issue, he a service is called for.

Reinsert cassette


Turn the unit off and hit the back of the camera twice near the battery compartment with the palm of your hand. Sounds crazy but it worked with my camcorder Sony DCR-TRV480. Problem started when I used 8MM Head Cleaner. I think the roller got stuck inside camcorder. The trouble code came up C:31:22. Hope this helps.
