Pro cameras have an internal battery to hold time code and other settings such as white balance when the camera is disconnected from a power source.  Locate and test this battery.

C:31:23 blinking on my sony handycam


Thanks for using FixYa. Error code C31:23 means that the FWD back tension value is too high due to grease sticking out of the "Gear Assy, Gooseneck", adhering to the band of "TG2, Arm Assy" or "Table Assy, Reel”. First remove all batteries and then shake the camera hard (or alternatively hit the bottom hard with your hand -at your own risk-), this will remove the error. If it still does not then you have to give the camera a couple of hard taps, on the side and base. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Poor contact of drum motor connection(flexi found at the upper part of the drum assy). Solution, disconnect this wire from the connector and cut 1mm from the end so that it will make a new contact. WIre will be shortened a little bit but it still can work this way since this flexi can not be ordered alone, it comes complete with the whole drum assy. Good Luck

I want ccd-trv260 camcoder's main board.How can I get it and where?

OK, you need VC-344 board as per following part number...

" A-7112-398-A " VC-344 BOARD, COMPLETE (SERVICE)

Board replacement by yourself could be complicated for you because after board replacement you need to perform various camera adjustments which requires special / custom designed jigs and tools.

You can get above board from Part Store and price is $379

Sony HDR-SR11 60GB High Definition Handycam® Camcorder

Problem seems in power supply section at VC-516 (main board). If you know how to open and repair it, just check Fuses at VC-516 board and these are located near connector coming from battery / dc-in jack area. One fuse is open in this case.
