Well, there are one of two things wrong. It is either the connector for the zoom switch has worn down (most likely) or it is a software issue. Unfortunately, the PC105 is very old and you can not pair it with a remote. Personally, I would just send it to sony. It might actually cost more to fix than to get a new camera unless you have a warranty, so you might want to consider getting a newer camera.

Hope this helps.

Common problem with this camera, the codes reflect reel sensor errors. The first thing to check for is when you open the cassette assy look inside to the right is there a black rubber kinda tall wheel like roller? The pinch rollers are known to fall off of their posts in this model. If the pinch roller is there then the mechanism needs to be replaced. Hope this helps. email me for service if needed.

Does it have c31:23 in the corner as well? or some kind of number like that and it beeps too? It is a problem with a rubber bushing on the inside. Mine had the same yellow triangle and was beeping. This is what I did to fix it. The instructions are in japanese but it is pretty easy to follow. He uses a drinking straw for the tube. My camcorder has been broke for months and this fix it perfectly.

This is usually an indication of digital dropout. Try using a cleaning tape to clean the heads. If that fails to resolve the problem, have the unit cleaned professionally.

Mostly if sound fails it is the heads, try cleaning camera heads.
