Error code 31:42 indicates a problem in the cameras tape drive system. This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly, a dislodged pinch roller or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and will require disassembling the camera to repair. This can usually be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a really 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.

Transfer video from tape to memory stick to put on computer using a sony handycam recorder dvr-trv330?

Yes you should be able to get a USB to Firewire cable for about £10 to get your movies over to your PC or Laptop computer, that is what I am doing now, then to edit my films and burn to a DVD to post to mates.

If your PC has DV link port, connect camera via DV link and transfer movie files in computer.

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.

Sony DCR TRV330 Error message C:31:22

This is a failure of a motor to move inside the camera. There are a number of causes of this problem. The tape will be ejected to prevent the tape from getting damaged. This is usually the head/drum assembly that is not moving. This is not a repair that should be attempted by an inexperienced individual. Please bring this to a service center for repair.

Sony Handycam DCR-TRV330 Digital-8 won't calibrate tapes to be able to view

hi there. i just actually had this problem right now. and heres how i fixed it :) it had the error so i took out the tape left it ejected for about 5 seconds. then put the tape back. it read for a little then errored again so it was close. next what i did is plugged the camera in (last time this error happened i plugged in the power and it fixed it) still no fix so i took off the battery waited 5 seconds then put it back on. after that i ejected the tape again and re put it in and it worked! you could try anyone of those things. and usually they work for me. maybe it has something to do with the cameras being old.

C:32:30 error flashes on screen

It was due to moisture condensation. I left the cassette compartment open and remove the battery for one hour approximately. then fixed the battery again and tried and it worked.
