This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I

When i put a tape in to watch,or record,the video camera beeps and C:3123 appears i have tried everything

  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds.
  3. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
  4. Turn on the camcorder.
  5. If the error message appears, service may be required.
I found many people saying that they had this error and "smacked" the camera... and then it started working. This would tell us that it is a mechanical error... so, at your own risk, if the above steps don't work, I would try smacking it a bit, maybe something mechanical is "stuck".

Where is the indicator to move from one pattern to another on the New Home mx 3123 ? The red light is on behind pattern 1.... How do you move it? Thanks!

it is the big knob on the right hand side below the bigger wheel that moves the needle bar up and down. You have to turn it clockwise to move the indicator to the right all the way to # 13 for straight stitch. It will make a loud click with every move. Make sure the needle is raised up because it jumps back and forth as you move the dial. When you make a buttonhole using pattern 1, when one finishes you turn the dial to #2 then back to #1 to reset the program. I have one right in front of me if you have more questions. This is an AWESOME machine and should never wear out :o)

Sony Camcorder DCR TRV50 error code c you know how to solve this problem? It had been serviced already..& here we are again. Seem to be a problem with this model. Help!!

This seems to be related to the black rubber roller inside the camera, either falling off or losing the bushing and getting too loose. It's an easy fix once you figure out where to look I just fixed this problem by referring to this link:

His solution says to use a compressed air straw to make a new bushing. This was too small for me, but I looked around and found a little extension straw that was the right diameter. This seems to be a common problem with a lot of Sony camcorders. Google Sony C31:23 for more info.

Broke sony

Defective mechanism, c:3123 error states that a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. pro service is needed.
