Hi,
C:31:23 error shows mechanism problem in your Sony DCR-HC35E camcorder.
Remove battery or unplug charger from camcorder for 20-30 seconds then attach battery again and turn On camcorder, insert MiniDV tape and check.
If that does not fix the issue then tape drive mechanism got serious problem and will be replaced by qualified camera technician.
Let me know if you need tape mechanism part number info.
Hope this info will help you.
Thanks.

Screen has error message and won't play tape. What is wrong?


Hi,
This message appears when the loading tape path become misaligned (mechanically unstable). Your camera just need mechanical adjustment from any expert and it will work fine again. Contact any service man for this.
Thanks for using fixya.

Error message; has something to do with insertion of tape. Looks like triangle over straight line. beeps and blinks, will not play. Working when loaned to a "friend", returned in this condition...


Will it record on a new tape? Will it play a different tape? Have had a similar problem with a different camera. Think it had to do with the record mode / play back. A bit like standard play and long play - are there setting like that you could change?

Error Message Reconect Power even if power is connected


It sounds like the tape door is out of alignment, causing stress on the tape and the inside mechanical system.  Requires a visit to the service shop.

Sony dcr-hc35e


first try a cleaning tape and this will not solve the problem have a service dealer check the unit.ru the cleaning tape once and try to playback a good old recording, if it does not work try to run the tape twice before testing . do not run the tape too many times as you may damage the video heads.one cleaning session should not be longer than 10-15 seconds. most of the new cams are stopping the cleaning tape playback after 10-15 secs.
