    Battery sounds like its being drained when in camera mode. Also have the "d" "eject" problem. Bought this in Nov. of 06' and its probably only worked well 2-3 times. I've tried trouble shooting, by removing the batteries and so on and still nothing. Not sure where to even start.

Good News!! I have found a way to fix this loud high pitch "grinding" noise, sudden battery "draining" accompanied by the eject "D" symbol being displayed only after a few seconds of tape play. And absolutely No thanks to Samsung's customer service. Although seemingly polite, I had to talk to 6 customer service representatives before they properly transferred me to Executive Customer Relation(ECR). They said they were experiencing technical difficulties. Once I got through, the ECR rep. insisted that the repairs will cost $160 mainly due to the cost of the parts and also admitted that he didn't know much about the technical aspect of the camcorder. And I was repeatedly told that this was not a known or "universal" issue so the warranty cannot be extended.

It is indeed a mechanical problem. The camcorder had only been used three times and kept in storage in its original box with no temperature extremes since I had puchased it at the end of 2006.

Here is the SOLUTION:
1) Gently unscrew and remove the front casing portion of the camcorder.
2) Directly underneath the lens there is crosslike metal support that extends from the tape compartment chassis. The green circuit board should rest on top of it as shown below instead of being under it .

Eject ...D error - 13e6f7e.jpg Now the camcorder functions properly consistently. The cost = $ 0.

    I'm not going to lie. I had all expectations that this would not work, but it actually did! It doesn't seem like this is the way it's designed to sit, and I don't think I would be able to close the camera back up without forcing the circuit board back below the metal piece but I just need it to work long enough to copy everything to DVDs. Thanks so much!

    I've had this camera put away for almost ten years because of this D eject problem, i took it to service and it costed too much, so I decided to put it away. Organizing some stuff I found it again and tried it, same problem, made a search on internet and the first answer I found was this, and I tried without having any hope, it is incredible!! It worked! I have an old new camera to play with, thank you very much.

Ben Sundar great fix. I was at a event for my son at school when this problem happened to me which sucked. Anyway, I just got off the phone with Samsung and they was going to have me send it in and pay them $160.00 I told them no way I could put a little bit more money with it and buy a new one first? I decided to look around on the web and ran across this site here and in less then 5 minutes my camcorder is working again. Thank you very much......

    Pull the crosslike metal thing away from the board, use something to move the green board up and release the metal thing.

If your Sony camcorder displays a tape transport or mechanical error code always try resetting the camcorder. This is done by removing the battery or ac power, wait 10 seconds, reapply the battery or ac power and try again. If it still goes into error try another tape. The camcorder will not always display an exact error code. Sometimes you may see an error message such as, "Reinsert the cassette", on the LCD screen. This is the camcorders way of saying, "Take the tape out and try again." Try reloading the same tape as well as a new tape. If the camcorder is still going into error this means it is time to send it in for service or repair.
The camcorder may also sometimes display a "Reattach Power Source." This is the camcorders way of saying,"Try resetting my system,so I can try again." Many people mistaken this error and think they have a problem with the battery or ac adapter. This is not true and has nothing to do with your battery or ac adapter. Reset the camcorder by removing the battery or ac power, wait 10 second, reapply the battery or ac power. If the error reappears the unit needs to be serviced or repaired.

I have a sony dig 8 trv340 and am receiving an error code of c31:42 what does this mean?


Hi,

In DCRTRV430 Camcorder, the C:31:42 error message is a Self diagnostic display. This message can be clearly identified by the help of a Sony Authorized service technician. Each of these codes indicates the symptoms and resolutions of the Camcorder. In C:31:42, the issue is with the tape and the tape mechanism.

I suggest that you remove and reinsert the tape to check if it helps. You may also try inserting new tapes in the Camcorder. Please remove the battery and/or power cable, connect, and perform operations from the beginning. You may also try resetting the Camcorder back to factory default after removing the tape.

To Reset the Camcorder, perform the steps below:

? Please open the LCD screen to locate the RESET button.

? To reset the Camcorder, press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.

? Please make sure that the Camcorder is turned on while pressing the reset button.


Also, try turning off the Camcorder and remove the battery pack. Then move the 'Power Switch' of the Camcorder to the ON position


for 1 minute. After about 1 minute, move the 'Power Switch' to the OFF position.

Now reinsert the battery, turn on the Camcorder and check whether it is working fine.


Thanks.

Jammed by putting tape in upside down


Take off the battery on the camcorder. Insert the battery and at the SAME time, push the power and the eject to see if this resets the camcorder so it will eject. If this does not work, I'm afraid the unit will need to be taken apart and removed manual. Good Luck

Maintenance Required message on. Purchased


this light can come on even thought service is not actually due. if the service was performed and the light was not on at the time, sometimes you cannot reset them if they are not actually lit, or 99% of the time the technician forgets if the light was not on. stop by your shop and they can reset it for you in just a few moments, and for no charge. good luck!
