Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV480 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Thanks I will try it. I see you have a pretty high rating.

Do you know why I have that line with the triangle on top of it. Showing up on the screen. Is it some kind of error code? I also notice other people seem to have the same problem. Must be common. Do you know if the cleaner work for them.

Usually they have to be cleaned every six months according to the book. Usually it saves an expenisive service call to the camera store or Best Buy.

Hello guys, please only reply if you have a realistic solution. I have a JVC HM100 camcorder and I have recently attached a cheap wide angle converter. Since then, my trouble started. When I take it off,...


When was the last time you white balanced your camera? I can't say for certain, but it sounds very similar to a problem I use to deal with all the time.
  1. set the ND filter according to the lighting
  2. set the WHT.BAL. switch to A or B
  3. locate a place with similar lighting conditions as the subject, place a white object near the center of the screen and zoom in to fill the screen with white
  4. press the auto white balance button
I got all of this from the manual. starting on page 35. I hope this turns out to be it. Let me know how it works out!

Yellow traingle appears on screen when trying to film - seems locked any suggestions ?


Does it have c31:23 in the corner as well? or some kind of number like that and it beeps too? It is a problem with a rubber bushing on the inside. Mine had the same yellow triangle and was beeping. This is what I did to fix it. The instructions are in japanese but it is pretty easy to follow. He uses a drinking straw for the tube. My camcorder has been broke for months and this fix it perfectly.

I have a Sony PDX-10 and it's giving me two blinking yellow symbols (underlinded triangle and tape with line through it) when I fire it up loaded with a tape. Tried changing with tapes that work fine in...


Hello,
Looking at PDX 10 User Manual Page 232

Your description -

Under lined Triangle

Cassette Ejection needed
Slow Flashing: The Write protect tab exposed

Fast Flashing: Moisture Condensation
Cassette out of tape
Self diagnosis display function activated


Sounds like the diagnosis function maybe your best shot......
Check displayed error codes in viewfinder on Page 231 of the User Manual or let me know if you dont have copy of them.

Tape Symbol Flashing:

Tape near end
No cassette inserted
The write protect tab exposed.

I think this is basically telling you the loading mechanism has a problem, the viewfinder is displaying an error code indicating the nature of the fault..... IF error Code is : E61:........ or E62........ (dots indicate extra numbers) these MUST be referred to Sony Service Centre.

Hope this may help

Can not record or playback video


This could be a card you may have plugged in that is not compatible like SD card, remove that and try again, also make sure your tape heads are clean with one of those head cleaner tapes.

Flashing error message C:31:23


Hi Jazzy,
Please see the detail below for the said error codes C31:23.

According to the symptom and self diagnostic system the problem is in mechanical section (tape loading section) Therefore camera just need mechanical adjustment and will work fine again. This problem aries when the insertion of the cassette is improper or forced insertion.
Thanks for using fixya.
