Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV240E Digital Camcorder
When you try to insert the cassette you can hear the winding mechanism whirring then C31:40 flashes up. In all other respects it appears to be ok. The cassette compartment closes fine so long as there is no cassette in it.
Can you help?
After not using my camera (Sony HVR-V1U) for one week, I took it out for an assignment but the error keeps coming up C:31:40 asking me to eject the cassette. The camera never gave me problems before this.I have tried smacking it at the bottom with the flat of my hand, flowing it with a hair dryer, shaking it, opening the cassette door for hours but nothing seems to work. The sony technician says I may have to send it in for repairs can any one help before I have to resort to this?
