C:31:23 on a DSR-25 indicates a supply reel problem, most likely caused by a defective cassette housing. Best repair solution is to send it to an authorized Sony repair center.

Error code 09-028


Servo and tape path system error.
0 : Mode cannot be identified, or mode identification is
not necessary.
2 : Threading motor/FG/sensor
8 : Abnormal current detected.

If it’s not just a simple tape jam, then you have a problem with the loading mechanism. The best solution is to take the deck to a service center.

How do you use free run on a DSR-25 Sony Deck?


Read chapter 3 (time code) of your users manual. It outlines the settings for using time code; "free run" means that the time code advances all the time, not just during recording.

Sony DSR 25, error code C3140. Any advise. Only comes up when tape is inserted.


FG fault when starting drum.
It’s very possible that you have a bad drum motor.

Can't eject tape from deck


On Sony DSR-80P error 02-221 and 02-291 is a problem with the tape pull-in or eject. Mostly the tape stickers are bad situated over the stripe-cover at the top, which should be moving freely!
Remove the stickers from the tape or put them lower on the case. If the tape is already inside the machine is unable to reject the tape - disconnect the machine from electricity to open it or call service...

greetings from berlin, matt.

The part number for the cassette assembly is A8312671F and it is around 500.00 NOT 200.00 as quoted in the article, and this price comes from the store that is reccommended in the article.

The service manual with the part numbers and prices is 9-977-696-22.

Sony DSR 45P error code C3125


Press the power butten several times while holding down the eject button. It will solve your problem and clear the error. If it not then there is something wrong with your reel motor or the circuitery which deals the reel motor. You must consult your nearby sony service center.

DSR-11 stopped outputting anything


I have almost the same problem!  Did you ever figure out what happened?  Here's what I had posted yesterday:
Tech Friends - 
I recently got a non-sony tape stuck in my DSR-11 (bummer) and was forced to extricate it using the "my tape got stuck in the DSR - 11" article's method of removing the top cover and highest level of circuit board:  
http://www.fixya.com/support/t178954-tape_stuck_inside

This worked for the tape removal, however, upon replacing the circuit board and cover, the deck no longer seems to be able to do anything with video or audio.  It still communicates with FCP via its firewire connection (ie FCP is able to control FF, rewind, play functions, etc), but it seems unable to read or write video.  Also, we use it as an A - D converter box between a Beta SP deck and thecomputer (actually, this is the deck's main function here).  Even when I switch it to the correct setting (video) and check to make sure that everything is plugged in correctly (trust me, I checked, it is), I get the "there is no video here" error message. 
Also, after trouble shooting the drive for a little while, I pressed the "reset" button the the rear.  I'm not sure if that matters one way or the other.  I don't think it does (that just resets the time code, right?) 
The question is, would this be a case of "fried firewire jack" such as it seems so many of us DSR - 11 owners have?  Could I have done any frying myself by not having myself properly grounded when opening the shell?  Is there anyone who knows the answer?  Help!  I can't digitize my video!
Comment by eltriunfo, posted on Sep 05, 2008 The Plot Thickens... 
Okay, I've checked all of the FCP settings and played with the deck more and it's only confused me more.  I can now get it to not only be controlled by the computer, but actually print audio and video to mini dv tape.  Also, I can record from my Beta SP deck to miniDV tape in the deck (connected through the "video" input on the rear of the unit).  In other words, the deck seems to function perfectly doing everything except for converting analogue to digital passively.  The way we always did it before was by keeping the input switch on the face of the unit on "video" and log and capturing in FCP with it as a noncontrolable ntsc device.  This makes me understand it less.  It means to me that it is not a broken switch, it's not a broken firewire port, everything works perfectly EXCEPT for using the unit as an A-D converter.  What the dill-yo?  If anyone in the world could offer any insight as to what could be causing this I would greatly appreciate it!

Sony DSR-45 Error Code C3140


C:31:40 is "FG fault when starting drum." In plain terms, the video head assembly is not producing a feedback signal that tells the control circuitry that the heads are spinning. Most probable cause is a bad drum assembly, but check to make sure the flex cable going to the drum is properly seated.

Sony DSR-11 Will Not Recognize Timecode


I think you may have misconfigured something because the problem is not in your DSR-11 try connecting it to a monitor and you will see the time stamp and picture as proof of what I am saying. The problem I think is that your Mac is not processing the time stamp correctly. Try this link first it helped me: Remember follow the instructions ezactly: http://forums.creativecow.net/readpost/35/856108
