Recently, I faced the same problem with a Sony XR-155 camcorder while being on vacation. Fortunately, I managed to recover my videos. First, make sure that you as little as possible to the hard drive in the camera menu, so I would not recommend to rebuild the image database or to reformat the drive.


Connect the camera to your PC in the same way that you would usually do. When I tried to access the drive in Windows Explorer, I got a message that the drive was not readable and needs formatting. You do NOT want to do that. I decided to make a full backup of the drive first, so that I could safely fiddle around later on.


The program that I used is Paragon Drive Backup. It gave me a few error messages during the back-up, which I all ignored, and after about 1.5 hours the copy was ready. The next step was to mount the image as to a free drive letter. I figured that I would need some kind of data recovery tool to extract the data, but to my surprise, the mounted disk image was readable in Windows Explorer as if no problem had ever occurred. Luckily, I was able to extract all of my videos from the camera in this way.


Of course I do not know for certain whether this technique also works in your case. For instance, it could be the case that the code E:31:00 is a generic HDD error message and therefore, it might be the case that your camera has a different problem than mine had. However, I think it is worth the shot to try to recover your data in this way (I assume Backup & Recovery 10 Suite does the same trick, a demo version is available on http://www.paragon-software.com/downloads/home/).


This procedure of course does not fix your camera (what I understand from various massages across the internet is that you should send it to Sony to get it repaired), but at least you might be able restore your data. I hope that you will be successful, good luck!

Rca hdtv dlp screen flashing


Sounds like it could be the power supply. Try changing the brightness of the screen and changing picture modes like movie or standard. If this causes the flashing to change in severity, it will most likely be the power supply board

Depending on which screen flashes, one of them has died. If the bottom screen flashes then the top screen needs replacing, if the top screen flashes then the bottom screen needs replacing, the easier of the 2.

Digital Camera HP Photosmart M517 Want to take a picture of my computer screen to send by email. Flash goes off every time and leaves a bright white light that obscures the screen. Can I disable the flash...


Press the flash button (just under the viewfinder) to cycle through the flash settings. Your choices are Auto Flash, Auto Flash with Red-eye Reduction, Flash On, Flash Off, and Night.

If you want to capture the screen image, you're better off using the computer operating system's screen-capture capability. This will give you the screen exactly as it is, without the distortions inherent in converting to an analog image and then converting it back to a digital image.

Hi Bill,

You are not using this flash like a sub-machine gun, right?
Is your reachargeable batteries older than 15 months?

Try this:
Set to low power on flash, set flash to manual.
Remove flash from hotshoe.
Fire the flash by pushing the flash button for 3 mins, same problem(s)?

MRM 700 won't start; screen flashes white . . . help.


stonelinton, It's not your LCD, otherwise you would have heard the sound of buttons being pushed. If your units first screen is white and there is no logo screen or any legible images, then it's your NAND flash on your main board. The first image produced upon boot is the blue magellan screen. This is produced from the NAND flash and will show it no matter if a hard drive is present or not. After the Magellan screen it pulls images from the hard drive. So, it is the mainboard and the only way to fix it is to send it to Magellan repair and they will have to put in a new mainboard then reprogram your serial number, etc.
