Question about Sony Projection Televisions

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-PC100 that is now flashing an error code C:31:23 in the display when I try to play back the DV cassette in the video camera. Please advise what this code means and if the footage on my DV cassette is in danger. Thanks.

    Tried that and now I am getting error code C:31:40 instead. Do you know what these error codes mean?

, giveit a bash canmake it work. Not too hard, just a few sharp smacks on the side.
It's something in the cassette carrier mechanism.
or
it could be the memory stick. you have to remove it, then, again place it properly it may work check it out.
or
The error message is related to one of the reels,
the black rubber one .

open up the cassette compartment, and the black rubber thing
comes out .... you put it back and cam would work again,




The reason for the alarm is because the "s-reel" is not fit in
same location. There must be a "locker" for it, put on top of
the pin, which apparently have fallen off my cam.

you can use the bis pen .you break the BIC pen, and the ink-pipe had exactly
the same dimension as the silver pin (approx 1.5 mills)
you cut it to a good length (not sticking out), put the black reel
in place again, and the BIC-pipe as a "new" lock on the pin.

  1. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds.
  2. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
  3. Turn on the camcorder.
  4. If the error message appears, service may be required.
If your camcorder still shows the same error code, then you'll have to send in your camcorder for service.

Try playing the dv casette on another player, it should be fine.

Why does my Sony kds-50a2020 power light flash 6 times?


I would talk to whoever rebuilt the optical block and see if they have any suggestions. It could be that the rebuilt unit is causing the problem.

Trinitron XBR Projection - No Picture


When it shuts off. Try doing what's called a self-diagnostic test.
As soon as the television shuts try these steps.

Pressing on the front panel's ?INPUT? and ?MENU? buttons at the same time, and holding for 5 seconds,
activates the Self Diagnostic Code Mode. The LED flashes denoting a two digit Error Code, or indicating no problem
has occured since the last Initalization.

Please do Note: The front panel buttons must be used, NOT those on the Remote Control.

? The number of flashes indicates the value of the MSD (tens digit) of the Error Code.
? The flashing then pauses for approximately 1/2 second.
? The LED then flashes indicating the value of the LSD (ones digit) of the Error Code.
? The Error Code is repeated a total of 5 times.
Example: If the Error Code is ?24?, the LED will flash two times, pause, and then flash four
times.

The Error Code designations indicating a malfunction, or no malfunction, are listed below:
Self Diagnosic Code Description
1 - 2 = no error detected
2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current)
2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies)
2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection)
2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source).


Certainly, I can help you. I would recommend going to the following link and getting the service manual so you can see first hand disassembly instructions and testing procedures. Its only 10.99 and they email it to you shortly after purchase. The manual is a valuable resource as it will have part numbers in case you do need a new KD board. heres the link.

My T.V. Will power on for a couple seconds then immediately turn off! Please help!


Hi,
Unplug the unit from the outlet for at least 1 hour and check if the symptoms persists. If yes, check if the unit can give an error code by following the steps below.
- Power on the unit and wait until the initialization takes place.
- Press the front panel "Input" and "Menu" buttons at the same time and hold it for 5 seconds, it will activate the error code mode. LED flashes a two digit error code. Example, if the error code is "22" the LED will flashes two times pause and then flashes two times and will repeat the error code for 5 times.
"12" means no error has occured.
Please let me know what will be the result to assist you further.

Kfwe50a1 will not start, green light comes on and then flashes red 6 times


Hi Keith,

6 flashes of the led light is an error code and the unit will not fire-up unless isolated the faulty parts.
To confirm if it is the real fault, unplug the unit from the outlet for 15 minutes and then plug it back in and check if the symptoms still persist.
Your unit has a self diagnostic screen that can be access by pressing in rapid sequence "Display", "Channel 5", "Volume (-)", "Power" on the remote control while the unit is in standby mode or the led light stops from blinking.

Self diagnostic screen will be display. Error code will be display together with numerical "0" means no fault detected and "1" means fault detected.
You will see "6 : LOWB with a numerical "1" on the screen, this is an error code for 6 flashes of the led light.

After you've confirmed that the the error code is "6 blinks/ LOWB error code", then the G1 board (Power supply board) is faulty. LOWB error code means that there's a malfunction on the 6Volts output of the G1 board.

To isolate the fault on the G1 board, you must have a skills on electronics troubleshooting, soldering and desoldering parts on the board, have necessary tools and test instrument. If you can't troubleshoot the unit yourself, don't worry, there's a DIY solution so that you can save money for the service fee of a TV technician. You may replaced the entire G1 board(part no. A-1087-323-A), this is more convenient if you are going to do-it-yourself because no troubleshooting and soldering required. I would advice you to obtain the board from your nearest Sony service center because this board is currently not available online.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
Ratings and feedback is highly appreciated.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

The TV keeps going into standby mode , comes back to proper picture and with-in 15-20 seconds goes back into standby mode. It happens continueously.


Hi,

May I know if the standby led light at the front panel is blinking, if so please count how many times it will flash to determine the error code? If not follow the steps below.

In standby mode press the button of the remote control in sequence, " Display ", " Channel 5 ", " Vol (-) ", " Power ". Self diagnosis screen will displays. Le me know the result.

I TRY TO TURN ON THE TV. i GET A FLASHING GREEN,


This symptom seems unusal as there is, what I assume to be, a self check system that monitors conditions and progress of the start up cycle. If there is an abnormal condition recognized during start up, after a short amount of time there should be a malfunction indicated by the LEDs on the front of the set.

Perhaps the self check system is not able to function. If you haven't tried yet, unplug the TV for a few minutes and try it again to see if a reboot of the controls will help. Other than contacting Sony customer service or a local authorized service company, this is the extent of my knowledge about what to try.

There is a error code check that can be displayed, but only if the lamp will come on. To display the error codes, start with the TV off. Using the remote, in sequence press: DISPLAY, 5, VOLUME - (down), POWER. Codes will then be displayed on the screen when the display comes on. To clear the displayed malfunctions, press 8, then press ENTER. To exit the error check mode, turn the TV off by pressing POWER.

I have a Funai HDR-B2735 dvd/video cassette recorder with HDD. When turning the machine on, it automatically switches off with the screen displaying the message "System error 02/56" before going...


Exact same symptom as above, little flashing "W" on standby, error code 02-56 on switching the unit on, promptly turns itself off. It would help no end if Funai would publish a little bit more info about these error codes on their site, or have a forum somewhere. Gona try a factory reset and a replacement HDD, dont know if i could replace it with a new one or not. any ideas or experience with these errors would be greatly appreciated!
