Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV43 Camcorder
When I turn the the recorder on (either on camera or player), the warning indcator C:32:00 (or C:32:11) is on (with beeps). I cannot eject the cassette, and I cannot record or play either. I tried the corrective actions suggested by the manual (p 72), i.e. removing the battery pack and reconnecting the power source. It didn't work. Any suggestions? Thanks!
I had the same problem (error c:32:00, beeps and tape would not eject. Cassette was halfway ejected) on my Sony CCD-TR416. I found the fix here:
To summarize: remove the battery, unplug from the wall and smack the **** outta the bottom of the camera. It worked for me. It looks like my problem was that the tape had started coming out of the cassette body and caused a jam.

I had the same problem. Error code and beep. Won't function and tape won't eject. Pulled the battery, smack the **** otta the bottom, reinstalled battery, and she fired right up. Funny thing is; I stopped at at small camera repair house. Bunch of Ruskees told me mechanics were out of alinement or the board was fried. Either way, $100 + to repair. THANKS gmr2048!!!!

Indeed! I took out the battery, used my palm and pat hard under the camcorder for like 10 times, connect the power line, and the tape got ejected out! Turned out, the tape was kind of stuck to the drum inside. My bad, I had it left there for months. Thanks for the solution!!!

Just slapped the hell out of my camcorder (TRV 230) and it came alive. Could someone explain why does it work and what was wrong?? Thanks

Thanks, gmr2048. It worked!!!. It took me many smacks (~10 times) to stop the beeps and to get the tape ejected. Perhaps my smacks were not hard enough (:>).

YEAAAAAHHHHH!!!! After just taking the battery out and literally slamming it on the bottom of the kitchen floor 10 times.. Installing the battery and does great.. My little boy thought that I was crazy running through the house jumping up and down, but was seriously thinking that I wouldn't be able to record Christmas for my 2 year old.. Thank God.. My code was a C:32:10 and had a re-attach power supply code as well.. My camera is a sony dcr-280

Worked for me too! Thank you! However I tried it several times without taking the battery out. It did not work until I removed the battery. Why is that?
