Open Question

Sony Handycam DCR-HC32 makes Clicking Sound when Rewinding

The camera makes clicking sound when rewinding and will sometimes say to reinsert the tape during the rewind. Additionally, the camera will be very slow to close the tape when inserting a new tape. The play back / sound and recording work fine.

Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

  1. I'm having the exact same problem. It wont accept the cassette...only half way then errors. It will close fully without a cassette as well. hmmmmm
Comment by Guest, posted on Apr 02, 2008 Load cassette, turn it on, then message says re-load cassette. Door to cassette compartment only works half way. After fiddling with power, can get the cassette door to open and close all the way, but not with cassette. Tried several brands of cassettes, no joy.

I have a DCR-HC36 sony handycam and I cannot rewind the tape for playback. It keeps telling me to reinsert the cassette; I reinsert it and it keeps asking giving me the same message. What can I do?

Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair the tape mechanism and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a 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.

My Sony Handycam DCR-HC26 started giving me C:31:23 error ''Reinsert the cassette'' when I try to record on a new Sony tape. I am however able play back a previously recorded Sony tape.

the error c:31:23 error pertains to one of the reel (part that turns the tape) is malfunctioning. although you can play back videos, you would definitely have issue w/ recording, rewinding or fast forwarding the tape.what you can do is to turn the camcorder off.remove the battery and ac adapter for at least a minute.insert the battery or reconnect the adapter.you can also try pressing the reset button (located near the top of the speaker, on the panel where lcd screen goes to).make sure cam is on when you do that.if still your getting this problem, service would be needed for your cam.hope this helps :)
