Video camera displaying Error code C:31:23

My video camera is displaying and error code C:31:23. This error code isn't listed in the service manual. It won't let me play tapes or record them. Hello, I have the C:31:23 fault code on my Sony Handycam DCR-TRV740 Digital-8 Digital and giving it a good whack does not help. I have tried removing the battery, reset button and changing tapes and nothing. Can you give me any other advice? Also, can you clear up the rumor about Sony making a free repair for the 31:23 fault until Sept 2008? Thank You. Mike

I have been fighting the same problem. I just now picked up the camera and a small rubber roller fell out of the tape door area. I was not sure where it came from but looking closer there are 4 small rods sticking up on the right side inside the area where the tape is located. It looked like this was where the roller went so I placed it on the center rod and replaced the tape. This solved the problem and I am now able to view and recored as before. There most likely is a part that has either fell or broken off or is loose inside the tape area.

Video camera problems - Sony Video Camera problem


Error code 94:01 is an internal memory error. If you still get the error after reformatting the card or trying a different one, it's an electronic issue usually used by component failure and requires replacement of a circuit board within the camera.

C:31:40 error code displayed on power up


Error code 31:40 indicates a problem in the cameras tape transport system. This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly, a defective clutch in the take-up spool or a faulty rotary mode switch. This will require disassembling the camera to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Is there an easy fix to Panasonic AG-DVC7 camcorder error F05, cylinder lock?


when you press the reset button, the first thing the camera does is a self-test of the mechanism. "cylinder lock" is displayed when the video rec/playback head drum (cylinder) motor does not operate or operates intermittently. this is usually caused by a poor connection on the small cable that connects the head drum assembly with the main control circuitry inside the camera. disassembly of the camera is necessary to clean and re-seat this cable, along with the cable that carries the video information to the head drum. I have repaired several of these cameras with this problem. it's not difficult, but an inexperienced repair person can do more damage than help if they're not careful.

Video camera displaying Error code E:61:00


E:61:00 means difficulty in focusing by the lens block. On the MR pin sensor Board CD-285,CN2031 Pin No.8,9 check when peforming the manual focus control. When the focus control is not adjusted manually, check the IC751 on the Mounted circuit board VC253 which controls the focus motor. If you need service manuals write to me.

Believe it or not, giving it a bash got it to work. Not too hard, just a few sharp smacks on the side.
It's something in the cassette carrier mechanism.
