Error code C:31:xx indicates a problem in the cameras tape transport system. This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly, a defective clutch in the take-up spool or a faulty rotary mode switch. This will require disassembling the camera to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should 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.

C31:23 is an error indicating a problem with the mechanism that drives the tape(usually the roller). Open the tape compartment and eject the tape(if any). If you look at the center of the compartment, you will see a roller and a plastic wire kind of thing that may have popped out of its slot. Using a screwdriver or something of the like, gently push down on the wire till it "clicks" into place. Insert a tape and play it to see if the problem is resolved.

This is often caursed by dirt on the capstan that moves the oxide from the tape back onto the heads and bakes hard so these dry tape cleaners wont shift it.
Are you using a shiny type head cart cleaner made of thin tape? if yes get the cleaner tape that is white in colour and like cloth.

You can set tape speed SP or LP in record mode only and can not change it in playback mode.
To set tape speed, turn camcorder in camera mode and go to Menu and set SP or LP in record speed option.
