    I have the same problem. It plays the tape, but when I switch to record, some yellow tape symbol pops up with a line crossing through it and an eject button flashes while beeping. So I CAN'T RECORD ANYTHING! And the thing broke right when we got to New York for vacation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I took mine to a camcorder shop and the part was like 180 Dollars... so as cheap as the newer ones are i decided to put all our 8mm tapes on DVD's and look into the new mini 8's or the new disc type....

It could be that the tape heads are dirty. You should try cleaning them with a 8mm tape cleaner. Radio Shack carries them.

When i chage the option of oFF to CAMERA nothing turns on and when I change the option OFF to VCR the screen just show strange symbol and SP and it does not work


just so you know, your camera model was included in the list for what we call the "ccd program". this program has ran for 5 years and unfortunately ended march this year. sony gave free repairs for cameras and camcorders affected by the defective ccd imaging sensor before the said date. issue with the camera shows a black or distorted screen in camera mode. but the you should still be able to see the indicators on the screen. when switch to vcr you should be able to play back previous recordings that you made. better to really make sure its a ccd issue, play a tape that you're sure contains a movie recording and play it, then set it to camera mode and see if you get just a black screen. if you try recording using a tape, you may see nothing but should hear the audio part. if this is what's happening we can be sure it's a ccd issue. if your camcorder just won't turn on in camera mode, maybe the power switch turned defective or it can be other parts of the unit that stopped working.if this is the case, then of course, your unit may require service to address the problem.hope this info helps.thanks:)

Sony Camcorder DCR-TVR140 NTSC does not recognize tape in camera


daer
this error C:31:23 is related to the s reel and this occurs only when the tension of the tape is more,
solution:
1 st try to change the tape
if the problem persists then u need to take it to the service center as the tape path of the mechanical section is to be adjusted
as you are telling that your camcorder is not showing remaining time (time code ) then head assy. also need to be cleaned ..try to use cleaning tape for 10 sec. not more then that .

If the all the functions of the camera work (EX zoom on off ) make sure you are using Panasonic tapes, other brand of tapes might not work, and if their is a menu screen go to settings and hit default, if no default found unplug take off the battier and let sit for 24 hours

How can I play back a tape produced on the GRHD1U?


Tapes may be played back by the camera itself. If the tape was shot in the 720P (HD) or 480P (SD) modes, it cannot be played back on a standard DV VCR or camera. Tapes shot in the 480i (DV) mode are completely compatible and can be played back on any DV VCR/camera. In addition, tapes can be dubbed to a JVC HD DVHS VCR via the firewire connector.
