Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV103 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Flashing code C:32:11

The camera was dropped while holding it (30 inches). It appears ok, but when I turned it on, it made a rapid beeping sound and flashed code C:32:10. I turned it off. I tried to eject the tape but it wouldn't eject. No motor sounds. I removed the and re-connected the battery, and it made rumbling sounds from beneath where the tape is. That stopped, and nothing happened. When I turned it off and on again, I received code C:32:11. Repeating on/off, or battery removal causes the same responses noted above. I can't get the tape to eject and don't want to break it. Am hoping there is a user fix. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Everytime i insert the tape i get this beeping sounds and flashing numbers on the screen.

Beeping and error code flashing shows that camcorder got some problem and usually its tape mechanism that needs qualified tech to check and fix.
Mostly its take-up reel section problems. Local camera tech will fix it.
