I do not have experience with that particular error code. But I can tell you that I was able to eject the cassette in my DCR-30 by leaving it unplugged and leaving the battery disconnected for a few days. When I reconnected the power supply after that, the cassette loading system reacted by operating normally again.
This can be due to few issue and what could be checked by you is to look if the cassette is properly loading. Check if there is any objects blocking within the carriage. Also if the cassette hass any issues, try with another one.
Next check if the set is having condensation and so gives out the error message of a protect. So use a hair dryer into the cassette compartment and into the drum section.
Finally a fault in the servo or the loading can issue a fault condition.
HI, this is a mechanism fault beep you are hearing. the mechanism and load motor is damaged. you will need to send this unit to the Handy cam repair depot for this repair. you will need a new load motor and loading dock mechanism as well.
I'm having the exact same problem. It wont accept the cassette...only half way then errors. It will close fully without a cassette as well. hmmmmm

Load cassette, turn it on, then message says re-load cassette. Door to cassette compartment only works half way. After fiddling with power, can get the cassette door to open and close all the way, but not with cassette. Tried several brands of cassettes, no joy.
Sony camcorders C:31:23 error 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. good luck
please mark the post with a fixya
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.
