SOURCE: C:31:23 error with DCR-PC101 Sony camcoder

Had the same error message on my TRV-720, and could not come up with a solution for weeks until I found this website:

http://www.protechcam.com/wwwboard/messages/127.html

Now the fix you will not believe, nor did I at first, but requires you to power off the unit completely and "Smack it" a few times fairly hard.
Now you may do this at your risk, but I swear it fixed mine and all the other people listed at the above web site.
I thought it was a joke - but it works!!

Good Luck!

SOURCE: sony digital video camera mode no. DCR-HC14E not

If your Sony DCR-HC14E shows fine picture in playback of old tapes and does not give live view in camera mode to record then its CDD Imager problem that Sony will repair free of cost.

Hi, I have sony DCR-HC28E camcoder. How I can connect this camcoder to my system? please reply me koranne16@yahoo.com


Hook it up to a Firewire (i.Link or IEEE 1394A) port. If you don't have one on your computer, then consider buying one. Most video editing software have a "Capture" mode, and work with all Firewire devices, without additional drivers or other software.

Firewire is the cheapest and cleanest interface. Otherwise you have to resort to video capture devices (both USB and expansion cards). USB capture devices have a wide range of capture quality. Expansion cards will be more expensive than Firewire cards, although more versatile since you can also hook up VCR's and and other video devices. Both tend to need more powerful computers, since video conversion is very compute intensive.

The vision is blury and it keeps flashing E:61:10


E:61:10 is a lens error code. Could be a connection issue between the lens and the main board or a bad lens. You will need to have this looked at by an experienced technician. www.austintelstarservices.com

Yes I know, Sony are getting 1000's of complaints about the Hard-Drive cameras and the DVD, the problem is that Windows Vista & Win 7 have no camera drivers, they are working on it honest.

Remove the screws and slowly pull camera apart. You should be able to set a new switch plunger inside and put back together.

Camcoder not starting up


Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
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.
