Cassette Ejection needed Slow Flashing: The Write protect tab exposed
Fast Flashing: Moisture Condensation Cassette out of tape Self diagnosis display functionactivated
Sounds like the diagnosis function maybe your best shot...... Check displayed error codes in viewfinder on Page 231 of the User Manual or let me know if you dont have copy of them.
Tape Symbol Flashing:
Tape near end No cassette inserted The write protect tab exposed.
I think this is basically telling you the loading mechanism has a problem, the viewfinder is displaying an error code indicating the nature of the fault..... IF error Code is : E61:........ or E62........ (dots indicate extra numbers) these MUST be referred to Sony Service Centre.
Beeping and error code flashing shows that camcorder got some problem and usually its tape mechanism that needs qualified tech to check and fix. Mostly its take-up reel section problems. Local camera tech will fix it. Thanks.
Hi Jeany, Please see the detail below for the said error codes C31:23 & C31:22
According to the symptom and self diagnostic system the problem is in mechanical section (tape loading section) Therefore camera just need mechanical adjustment and will work fine again. This problem aries when the insertion of the cassette is improper or forced insertion. Thanks for using fixya.

With Sony camcorders, if there is an error, it will display an error code on the LCD screen, usually flashing. Make a note of it, search for your model number and the error code and you can most likely find the solution.
