Jammed tape / tape not "recognised" by camera

Upon loading a new tape, my camcorder (already a few years old) started to go wrong: it did not seem to recognise a tape had been inserted and would therefore not record. Tried changing the tape / topping up the battery / playing an old tape but only managed to jam the tape case and now I cannot even close the body of the camera and the tape just juts out. Anybody had the same problem please? J

SOURCE: not reading Hi8 tapes

Fidus, I am not sure where you are located but the camcorder you're trying to use now is a PAL version of Sony's 8mm camcorder. If the tapes you recorded earlier were recorded in D8 (digital 8) or 8mm/Hi8 format NTSC, they will not play correctly in this unit. The NTSC and PAL formats are different and not compatible. Hope this helps you. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

SOURCE: tape loading

You should take it into a camera shop and have them inspect it. Those assemblies are pretty detailed. They have the tools to fix the problem.

Sony HVR-A1U "Reinsert Cassette" Error pops up frequently

I have had this error on my 3 year old Sony A1E and it has resulted in glitched picture and audio, despite not showing a poblem whilst recording. It came up with C:31:23 error. Start of the tape seemed ok and the end seemed to get pixellated. A friend said the PD170 had the same issue and had to have her tape heads changed. I've tried cleaning mine but problem still there. I'm looking at getting new NXCAM as I've spent a lot of money last year getting it fixed.

Have a 1993 Sony CCD-FX420 camcorder that I have not used for a few years. The tape deck opens and closes fine without a tape, but when I insert a tape it won't completely close. How do I fix this? Thanks....

It is more than likely that during the period of prolonged storage in less than ideal conditions, some moisture has entered the camcorder and rendered it useless. This camcorder is also some twenty-four years old, and all consumer electronic devices have a limited life, even if well looked after. I feel your only choice is to replace it, and keep the replacement in optimum storage conditions - maybe in a dry cupboard indoors.

Tape jammed in jvc camcorder

The way I can get a tape unjammed on my Sony camera is to remove the battery, plug the camera into the AC charger that is plugged into the wall outlet. Then power the camera on, wait a few seconds. Then unplug the charger from the outlet, wait a few more seconds (camera still in "on" position) and then plug it back in. I have used this method at least 3 times to get the camera to release the tape.

DCR TRV320

That is the "LOAD" error code.

However, to service the C:31 code, Sony recommends you do the following:

  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds.
  3. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
  4. Turn on the camcorder.
  5. If the error message appears, service may be required.
If your camcorder still shows the same error code, then you'll have to send in your camcorder for service.

Tape jammed??

Maybe your blaming the wrong people? Maybe your camcorder has a problem? with the power off, try pushing the eject button and the power button down together for a few seconds, but push down the eject button before the power. If that does not work, you will need to have the camcorder service and ask the servicer to please be kind to the tape as it is important. Good Luck
