On this model sony it does not have an erase feature. I have called sony and confirmed this. The feature that would do that is called flying erase heads. So your option would be to either record over the tape or buy a player than can erase but a eraser is 300$usd-400$usd which really isnt cost effective just to erase a tape.
If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the solution. thanks and have a great day.

Time date stamp dcr trv140. I have this model. The date does not show in the view screen or on the audio output. Just wondered if any did on this model. Maybe I have a cheaper model.


From the 'Operating Instructions' manual:
"The recording date and time are not displayed while recording. however, they are recorded automatically onto the tape. To display the
recording date and time, press DATA CODE on the Remote Commander (remote control) during recording."

Nothing happens when I turn on the camera - message C:31:23


This error usually comes when there is some mechanical fault instead of the electronic one. Maybe the gears are jammed. Try it at your own risk:
I found this on another discussion forum. Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times. Surprisingly it worked for me..
