Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV140 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Can not record or playback video

Everytime it's turned on it starts beeping & has a symbol(triangle w/ a line under it) blinking on the viewing screen. In the top right corner of the screen it says C:31:22 or C:31:23. I've tried out the recommended solutions in the manual but nothing is fixing the problem.

This could be a card you may have plugged in that is not compatible like SD card, remove that and try again, also make sure your tape heads are clean with one of those head cleaner tapes.

Will my camcorder still record even though I can't view playback


If you cannot view action on the cam screen and likewise when attaching it to the TV; the video playback function has been compromised. You may be able to record as the two functions are separate from one another, however what good is recording when it cannot be played back? If the Recorded material is on a Tape or CD and you can move material to another reading device or player; then your problem is answered.

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 8mm Analog... 2 Problems, maybe more unknown at this time:


This does require disassembly to remedy the problem. There are various possible fixes. The most prevelant I have seen is cold solder connections of the board connector for the fpc cable from the top operation switch block ass'y. All you need is someone who can handle this task, like a professional. The controls that you are experiencing problems with are all linked with one cable and connector. One bad solder joint can cause serveral operation faults. Good Luck, magic seadog
