I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing as the Camcorder is generating beeping sound. Based on the information you have provided, it seems that the issue is with the cassette drive mechanism.

I suggest that you reset the Camcorder and check the operation. To reset the Camcorder, please press the reset button shown in the below picture. Make sure that the camcorder is turned ON when pressing the reset button.

If the issue persists, please perform a manual power reset by following the steps:

1. Turn off the camcorder. 2. Disconnect AC power adapter. 3. Remove the battery pack. 4. Move the POWER switch to the CAMERA position for 15 seconds. 5. Move the POWER switch to the OFF position. 6. Reconnect the AC power adapter or reinsert the battery pack. 7. Turn on the camcorder.

If the issue persists after power resetting, the tape mechanism may have to be changed. However, it is not economic to fix this old Camcorder by replacing the tape mechanism. The best possible option is to get a playback device for your old tapes, play it and connect the A/V output to the A/V input of the Computer and use Windows Movie Maker to capture the recordings.

Alternately, you may purchase an 8mm to VHS adapter to playback those tapes in regular VCR. The below link shows the one you need.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require further clarifications.

Cleaning cassette message


I assume you mean you've got a message come up telling you to clean the cassette recording heads. The camera has detected either that the heads are getting dirty, or sufficient time has elapsed that they could do with a clean. By a cassette cleaning tape - which looks like a normal tape but with white papery stuff - follow the instructions and run it for the recommended time. Hopefully this will cause the message to disappear.

Tape will not load; Error code 31:23


You may try the following troubleshooting steps:
Remove the battery of the Camcorder for one minute and re-insert the battery to check whether it works.
You may try resetting the Camcorder by pressing the RESET button located on it.
You may also check whether the issue occurs for all the tapes.
If the issue occurs with all the Tapes then it seems that internal parts of the Camcorder are malfunctioning.
Hence, the Camcorder requires service.

Loading tapes


I have the same problem. If I remove the battery for a few seconds, then replace the battery and wait about 5 seconds, the tape compartment closes.

Reinsert cassette


Turn the unit off and hit the back of the camera twice near the battery compartment with the palm of your hand. Sounds crazy but it worked with my camcorder Sony DCR-TRV480. Problem started when I used 8MM Head Cleaner. I think the roller got stuck inside camcorder. The trouble code came up C:31:22. Hope this helps.

Choppy Video


I had same problem. Don't buy a cleaner. Look inside camcorder and make sure both reel turners are equal in height...they can slide down. Turn both of them...one of mine was down and also did not turn to make contact with tape. We got it to turn and the message C31:23 and the dinging quit. Camera instantly worked like it used to. Good luck.

Problem with loading cassette


Defective mechanism, 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. You need professional service to fix it.
