Re-inserting in and out will temporarily make it work. switch contacts are bad and has to be serviced, cleaned otherwise replaced.

When i try to record it dosent let mi and in the screen it shows a tape with a line through it. what do i do?


The tape with line through it indicates that there is some issue with tape/tape mechanism. I believe that the tape symbol is as follows:

If the tape warning indicator flashes slowly, the reason may be.
  • The remaining tape becomes shorter than the length of five minutes recording.
  • No tape is inserted
  • The write protected tab on the cassette is set to LOCK(red).
If you're confirmed that the reason is not the first and second, it should be because of the write protected tab on the tape.
Don't worry, I will help you with that. Please see the below picture to view the LOCK slide switch:

If the tape with line symbol flashes quickly, it indicates that the cassette has run out of tape.
If the issue persists, please follow the troubleshooting steps and check if that helps.
  1. Reinsert the tape.
  2. Reset the Camcorder by pressing the reset button behind the LCD panel using a sharp pointed object.
  3. Perform a power resetting
  • Turn off the camcorder. Disconnect AC power adapter. Remove the battery pack.
    Move the POWER switch to the CAMERA position for 15 seconds.
    Move the POWER switch to the OFF position.
    Reconnect the AC power adapter or reinsert the battery pack.
    Turn on the camcorder.
    If the issue persists, service may be required.
    I hope performing the above steps should resolve the issue.
    If you need any assistance please get back to me.. Thanks for understanding.

It is telling you it does not see a proper type tape in the camera, is the cleaner tape a digital 8 cleaner or normal 8? as though they look the same the case is slightly dif at the rear.

Hit your camera several times with a flat hand (bottom, tape side). Its strange but my problem was solved. On internet I found maybe 10 or 15 other people who did the same.  Really works!

Reinsert cassette


Turn the unit off and hit the back of the camera twice near the battery compartment with the palm of your hand. Sounds crazy but it worked with my camcorder Sony DCR-TRV480. Problem started when I used 8MM Head Cleaner. I think the roller got stuck inside camcorder. The trouble code came up C:31:22. Hope this helps.

I had the same problem. I would suggest going to the service with it. The "head" needs changing.
