    thanks, I did try that already. I did take it into a repair shop and for $44.00 they fixed it. Wonder what they did?

    I appreciate your help.

Tape door won't open or close to release tape

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV58 Hi-8 Analog Camcorder
1. Per the manual on esupport.sony.com
- if the power is disconnected door won't open, and if the battery is the dead the door won't open.
Plug it in and hopefully you can get the tape out.

Did this work?

My Sony handycam won't allow me to use the touch screen features in play mode. I can't rewind, play or fastforward the tape. It has reached the end of the tape - what now?

If the touch screen of the Camcorder is not working, please follow the troubleshooting steps.

Please make sure that you're using fully charged batteries.

Turn off the Camcorder and turn ON again and check the operation.

Reinsert the tape and check the operation

Try another tape to check whether the issue persists only with particular tape.

Try resetting the Camcorder by pressing the reset button behind the LCD panel.

If the issue persists again, please perform LCD screen Calibration and check if that helps.

Please follow the steps below to perform the LCD Calibration

I have a sony dig 8 trv340 and am receiving an error code of c31:42 what does this mean?

Hi,

In DCRTRV430 Camcorder, the C:31:42 error message is a Self diagnostic display. This message can be clearly identified by the help of a Sony Authorized service technician. Each of these codes indicates the symptoms and resolutions of the Camcorder. In C:31:42, the issue is with the tape and the tape mechanism.

I suggest that you remove and reinsert the tape to check if it helps. You may also try inserting new tapes in the Camcorder. Please remove the battery and/or power cable, connect, and perform operations from the beginning. You may also try resetting the Camcorder back to factory default after removing the tape.

To Reset the Camcorder, perform the steps below:

? Please open the LCD screen to locate the RESET button.

? To reset the Camcorder, press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.

? Please make sure that the Camcorder is turned on while pressing the reset button.


Also, try turning off the Camcorder and remove the battery pack. Then move the 'Power Switch' of the Camcorder to the ON position


for 1 minute. After about 1 minute, move the 'Power Switch' to the OFF position.

Now reinsert the battery, turn on the Camcorder and check whether it is working fine.


Thanks.

Hi 8 tapes will only play on a Hi 8 machine. I would recommend you search for a place that will do the video transfer for you. There are several in my town and likely you could find one on the internet.
