Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV350 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

I have a Sony camcorder DCR-TRV310. I cannot play a tape. On the screen is a triangle pointing upward and the numbers C:31:30 and both are blinking fast. Once in a while i get the numbers C:32:30 but mostly its C:31:30 though. I have tried the self help method in the manual but it doesn't do any good.

These error codes indicates a malfunction in the tape transport mechanism. This can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Will it record on a new tape? Will it play a different tape? Have had a similar problem with a different camera. Think it had to do with the record mode / play back. A bit like standard play and long play - are there setting like that you could change?

I think you are expecting camera to covert VCR analog video-audio signal into digital so it can be record in Macbook?

Camcorder will not do this job and you need to hookup VCR with DVD Recorder to burn DVD of VHS tape.

check on ebay for a back - up camera ( that model has a good history ) and / or get an estimate on yours , for a price comparison ; if the main board has failed ( corrosion , etc ) repairs will likely exceed replacement cost ;
