Well I have not had this happen in my own Sony 340 8 camera, but I have head of it lots of times.
Make sure your tape is re-wound to start, check that the safe tab on rear of take is not pulled over the hole (it prevents writing over stuff you want to keep.

Sony Handycam DCR-PC109 NTSC minicam--"Reinsert


The C31 indicates that there is a motor movement problem. I don't have the manual handy at the moment, but the :23 will indicate which movement is having the problem. This is not typically a DIY repair. I woul d strongly suggest that you check the fixed repair cost from a Sony authorized service center. This will not only repair the unit, but also reset it back to factory specifications.

I'll look up the error code tonight and try to update this.

Reinsert casettee again and Error Code C:31:23on sony handycam DCR-TRV258E


This is the most common problem in Sony camcorders of various models. It is most likely a problem with a rubber bushing on the inside. It is an easy fix but it is very hard to explain with out pictures. Here is a link to a GREAT tutorial however, it is written in Japanese. All you need to do is follow the excellent pictures and this should take care of the problem. The plastic tube on the inside of the rubber bushing is the most likely cause so just follow the pictures. He uses a drinking straw to fix this. Good luck. This has fixed my camera perfectly!!!!!!!!! http://d.hatena.ne.jp/tomo_snowbug/20090207/1233989258
