I have found, that if you oilthe gears ( DO NOT OIL THE PLASTIC ROLLERS OR THE RECORDING HEAD, DO NOT USE WD40, USE AN ACTUAL OIL DRIPPER), and the hinge on the camera tape door, that it... So far has fixed my issue with the same problems and have been good for 6 months now. The camera would flach stuck tape, eject, and it would act as if it was stuck.

when problem occur while cam is operating, the self-diagnosis function starts working, and may display the service mode display code. in your case, C:31:40, pertains to a part of the cam tape compartment mechanism called the drum that doesn't start up. issues could prevent you from recording, playing back tapes, rewinding or fas forwarding. t/s steps are: try diff tapes esp. w/prev recordings, reset cam (press reset button while cam is on, located just below the menu button, in the panel where the lcd screen goes to), power reset (remove batt and ac adapter and leave cam w/ any power source for at least a minute). if issue persists, unit will require repair. hope this helps.tnx:)
reel sensor is the problem of your camera... sometimes it is a poor
connection of the sensor to the socket at the main board..clean the
contact of the wiring using a pencil eraser and also check the pitch
roller of the mechanical if it is install cause it might be loose at it
post cause of the lock has been broken already...
It's been a while since I worked on the RCA full size camcorders as well. It sounds as though the load motor is "jogging" because the mode switch is not in time with the mechanism. I think there are timing marks on all the cams and gears in the unit and an indicator arrow on the mode switch.
Set the mechanism to the "stop" mode and align the main cam index mark to the load motor drive cam, be sure the mode switch arrow points to the load motor drive gear "hole", this tells the micro the unit is in "stop" mode.
