According to the operation manual, C 13 error indicates a problem with the HDD or the inserted DVD is dirty and/or defective. If cleaning/using a different disc does not solve the issue, then the unit will need to be submitted to an authorised SONY service centre for repair.

This could be expensive if the recorder is no longer under any warranty, and, if a built in hard drive is involved, replacement and reconfiguration may be necessary for this model. Get a quote, so that you will have an idea of the likely cost(s).

This service/error 'code' is part of the unit's self diagnosis function.

HDD error


I have a SONY RDR HX-750 video recorder, that as of late has frequent "dub error" incidents...this unit has had a lot of use since purchased. It has served me very well until now. I have erased several recordings (many hours), and optimised the hard drive in an effort to correct the problem...to no avail. The problem persists. I can therefore, ownly deduct that the dvd drive is very "dirty", and needs to be "cleaned" (HOW CAN I DO THIS?)...or there is something wrong with the hard drive? Can you please help? Many thanks for any help and your time and consideration. Have a very good day!

Sony minidisc MDS-JE530 c13 rec error


This could be a solution for your problem, if you get a C13 error it's because of dust on the lens causing TOC read errors. Try blowing out dust using clean compressed air (the kind in the can used for computer maintenance).

C13 error !!!!


Amazing what google can find...

I was ion touch with the Sony tech dept. If you get a C13 error it's because of dust on the lens causing TOC read errors. I didn't have any compressed air in a can so I used a soccer ball hand pump and pumped a ton of air just inside the door of the unit. 2 seconds later it worked fine. No cleaner MD needed.

Disk error C13:01


Any C13 error is a media error. First try formatting a blank disk in that camera itself. If that doesnt work, try blowing out the disk slot with compressed air. I wouldnt use canned air like you can get at office supply places because if the can is tilted some of the propellant can come out and gunk up the inside of your gear. If dry compressed air doesnt work, have it serviced by an authorized Sony repair shop.
