For me, the alcohol sensor cleaning didn't work. I did some research on how the sensor works and it turns out the black stuff is conductive in low humidity and resistive in high humidity. That means the circuit need to be cloed to work,, cleaning off the black substrate would only open the circuit furthur, I cant understand why removing the black substrate is working for some people. After cleaning it to no avail, I tried bypassing (shorting) it. To test it I just took an ordinary pencil and filled in some conductive carbon where the black square was. And it worked. I could have bypassed the sensor by shorting the 2 solder contacts, but to reach it I would have to take it all apart. I'll make the bypass permanent when I have a day free.

Hello

Try this. Remove the memory stick your camera. If there is a LOCK switch on the back of the Memory Stick Duo, please be sure to set it to the unlocked position before attempting to delete or write data to the stick. If the switch is left in the locked position when attempting to delete or write, the data on the memory stick may be damaged.

Please reply here if you still need assistance.

Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair the tape mechanism and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. 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.

This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively.

Hi,
If video head got clogged then camcorder wont read tape in playback so result comes as blue screen.
Please use video head cleaning tape and clean video head of camcorder. This will solve your problem.
Video-8 head cleaning tape is available with amazon.com

This code means
"FG fault during normal drum operations. Load the tape again, and perform operations from the beginning."

'C' indicates consumer-fixable problem.
'31' indicates the fix method (remove casette).
The 'FG' signal from the capstan motor is the tachometer signal that the camera uses to monitor the rotation of the capstan.

Hi,
To remove tape manually from DCR-TRV530 camcorder, you need to take it apart, take out its mechanism, provide DC 5 Volts to loading motor by external power source to unload mechanism so to take out tape inside.
Let me know if you can do that to provide you more technical details.
Thanks.

This would be a shutter issue in the lends meaning the camera lens is not picking up light inside the shutter could be stuck closed so I would have a camera shop in your area look at it if I where you.
