Hi,

Sony is pretty secretive about the :23 code. It can't be found anywhere. However, to service the C:31 code, Sony recommends you do the following:


  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.
OR

This may seem silly, but it worked for me. 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

Hope this is helpful

How can i charge my Vivitar 550 camcorder without original charger? (Currently in remote part of Afghanistan)


Look for a ,,Universal Battery Charger" like those ,,made in China" remove your battery pack from camcorder, and insert them in the charger. The charger is inexpensive and very useful, having two adjustable flexible contacts that fits to every possible battery used in cellphones, cameras and camcorders.In my country Romania, this universal charger cost about 5 dollars or 4 Euros.

Sony DCR DVD108 not finalizing disc, lost data


I noticed that too with my "VR" (and NOT "Video") formatted disks. I don't think you can finalize the VR ones. Instead you have to use the Sony Import tool to grab the videos. If you are like me you probably remember using the import tool with Video formatted disks BEFORE finalizing them and it takes forever to copy them. They must be finalized to view on other devices, copy using the import tool quicker, etc., but VR formatted disks seem optimized for importing (and can be edited on the camcorder directly.
