Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error C 31:22 is caused due to bad Gear assembly, to resolve this issue with the battery &cassette removed try whacking the camera sideways, if after doing this still the issue is not resolved then you’ll have to get the Gear assembly replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Previous answer is user level reply, I'm expecting Expert Level solution from expert at Fixya.com

C:31:22 is an error code that shows problem with Take-Up Reel signal in tape mechanism. Whacking the camera sideways might solve camera problem temporarily but proper fix needs expertise of experienced camera technician.

Tape door won't open or close to release tape


Sony Handycam CCD-TRV58 Hi-8 Analog Camcorder
1. Per the manual on esupport.sony.com
- if the power is disconnected door won't open, and if the battery is the dead the door won't open.
Plug it in and hopefully you can get the tape out.

Did this work?

Full glass of water spilled on my iTouch keyboard. Have tried a fan on it for over 24 hrs and still nothing. Can you help?


Hello,

Unfortunately some things don't mix (like electronics and water). You can try to dry it out more, let it sit upside down. Make sure you take the batteries out if you haven't already. If that doesn't work you will most likely need to replace it.

This deviation is perfectly acceptable. Even a certified chronometer may deviate -4 to +6 seconds per 24 hour period so you should be pleased with +2 seconds.

It is highly unlikely that any exchange will fair better. Also, the deviation will depend on the position of the watch. So, if you wear it, you will know its average deviation much better.

Shutter stuck half open


This sounds like the mechanism has worn. It is a straight forward service centre procedure, I wouldn't recommend trying to do anything that will make it worse. Leave it to Nikons engineers.

I let it sit overnight and when I opened the door I nudged the part that holds the tape up. I got the tape out but I think it is still frozen. I will try a different tape and hope it still works. I'll post results.
Thanks

I tried every method I could find from people posting on the web, but the method that worked for me is this.

1. Eject the tape and close the tape holder.
2. Turn the camera off and remove the battery.
3. Put the battery back in. Leave the camera off.
4. Open the tape holder.
5. Slide the tape in, but as you press the holder in to accept the tape, keep your finger pressing in on the holder, being careful not to slow the tape holder from moving downward.
6. Turn the camera on.
7. If it doesn't work the first time, press more firmly to help the tape holder accept the tape.

That's it. This method seems to work for me and lets me use the camera for a long while. If the camera is sitting unused for more than a few hours, I have to do it again. And each time I insert a tape, I make sure that I keep pressing as the tape holder lowers the tape.

"remove tape"


I've had my GL-2 for about 3 years, and just recently started experiencing this problem. It happens when I flip the power saver switch off, then back on again. I've found that removing and reinstalling the battery lets me continue without ejecting and inserting the tape. I also just replaced the watch battery but I'm still getting the "eject" message when I use the power saver switch. I'm not looking forward to spending hundreds of dollars, but it "is" quite annoying.

Code 32:11 will not eject tape sony tvr67


The mechanism got stuck. Open the cassette compartment screws and apply external DC to the Power input and eject the tape. If this is not possible refer to a skilled technician. If you need the service manuals and mechanism for replacement write to us.
