Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV308 Camcorder

1 Answer

Tape wont play or eject.

Hello I have a sony handycam vision ccd-trv308 ntsc. As I was showing the kids some old footage of them. I ejected a tape and inserted another one. This tape made the camera beep and display this number C:31:22 while also displaying the eject button on the screen. I tried to eject the tape but it just came up halfway and the beeping started again. I hit the reset button and the same thing happens. Im hoping that this is domething that i can fix because my basketball team has two games tonight that we would like to get recorded before playoffs. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank You.

I just read about this c:31:22 problem while looking for a solution to another problem I am having. Someone suggested removing the battery, switching the camera to the "camera" setting, and then turn it off, put the batter back in and it should work. Good luck.

Constant ejecting

This is already an issue with the hardware. There is a rubber bond inside the cassette that is no longer intact and needs to be replaced. Possible cause by repetition of single and old cassette tape and improper tape position.

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.
