The EOS cameras have some sort of sensor built in to tell the camera which way the shot should be orientated on screen and when they are transferred to the computer. It sounds like the sensor is jammed or broken and sensing (for some reason) that the camera is upside down when the shot is taken. If you don't want to pay to have it repaired you can use a program to rotate them or turn of the image rotate option in the menu. I believe this ignores the sensor information.
The 4-digit error code consisting of an alphabet and numbers, which blinks at 3.2 Hz is dislayed on the screen when any problems occur. This 5-character display indicates the "repaired by:", "block" in which the problem occurred, and "detailed code" of the problem.
The error code C:31:22 and C:31:23 indicates T reel fault and S reel fault respectively. Load the tape again, and perform operations from the beginning.
The error code C:31:40 indicates FG fault when starting drum. Load the tape again, and perform operations from the beginning.
Furthermore, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds then try using the Camcorder.
Sony says C31 is a Tape Loading Error. They suggested removing the camera
battery. Then re-connect and then re-set the camera back to factory
conditions. If it persists it may require attention. May also be a mechanical problem such as
is the back Rubber wheel in the proper place and the white plastic
lock is not there? flip the camera upside down it's come out
(the white plastic lock) then place it BACK
It may also be a bent lever. Try the factory restore first.
After looking up the error code C:31:22, I saw all of the solutions for slapping the side of the camera. Slapped it 4 times, then the error code switched to C:31:23. Same solution... Whacked it 4 times, then the error code switched to C:31:40. Again, whacked it 4 times. Opened it up, turned it upside down and a rubber roller dropped out of the camera. I could see where it went, snapped it down on its metal peg and it works fine. Looks like its the rubber rollers that guide the tape that gets stuck. Before whacking it, make sure the RUBBER roller moves freely. Good luck!!!
I have been fighting the same problem. I just now picked up the camera and a small rubber roller fell out of the tape door area. I was not sure where it came from but looking closer there are 4 small rods sticking up on the right side inside the area where the tape is located. It looked like this was where the roller went so I placed it on the center rod and replaced the tape. This solved the problem and I am now able to view and recored as before. There most likely is a part that has either fell or broken off or is loose inside the tape area.
