Code error: C:32:11 tape won't play or eject

The camcorder doesn't seem to reconize that the tape is in or when the door is open to eject.

    Same thing happening with mine. Fell on floor and cracked the LCD screen about 6 months ago. I was still able to record/playback via the remote in easy mode.



    The C:32:11 error just started coming up recently and now it the cartrige tray doesn't want load at all. Upon power cycling, it will eject the tape - but the problem now is that it begins the load process, opens the 'hatch' on the cassette, feeds about 2 inches of mangled tape out and then ejects...



    Think I may just have to go buy a second Canon HV20 now, with a full 'break-it/replace-it' warranty! grr...

Warranty is your chance to repair the camera which is not expensive.

Why do I get the error code C:32:11 or C:31:42?

Does it try to eject the tape? Try a gentle help on that. The tape may have gotten snarled in the camera.

When i try to play back i get error, take battery a loose and reattach bur=t it does no good

Go down further with the error message and look for the numeric code like "02 or 03 etc". If its '03' try to use another tape, to eject, open cassette door and hold until it eject(around 5 sec). If "'02" have it service by the company. If you do the job change motor bracket assembly(mode motor). Good luck.

Tape eject door will open but tape will not eject

got door open and looked in and saw what looked like the tape head sitting very slightly proud of tape and believe it or not inserted a very thin and pointy bladed knife up as far as the head then pressed it down on top of the head very lightly and the head slid down its shaft to its original position switched camcorder back on and tape then ejected as per normal and it has worked normally since and as i did'nt touch the head (face?) no damage was done and it can record and play with no problems, a little unorthodox perhaps but it worked for me and saved me a probable fortune

Error Code C:32:11 Tape does not eject

try removing the button cell battery, main battery, and any other power source from the camera and let it sit for one hour. THen using only the AC adaptor, see if the camera works, if it doesn't then you may have to take it to a repair shop, cause the cassette door has malfunctioned.

Cannot eject VHS tape from Sony SLV-X811

I had a similar problem with a Panasonic VCR. It would not eject the tape and gave an error code. I found that the door does not quite fully open, so that the top of the tape hits the door and cannot eject. If I turn off and then turn on the VCR the error code disappears. Then I press the eject button and simultaneously hold the door fully open with one finger until the tape starts to eject and clears the door.

C:32:11 message flashes, cassette eject won't work, camera doesn't work

Just had this problem myself... called Sony. Here is what I did to fix this:

1. Turn off power
2. Open the LCD Display
3. Press "Reset" with paperclip/pen
4. Unplug ANY wires connected to the camcorder
5. Eject battery
6. Plug in DC charger
7. Power on
8. Attempt to eject tape
9. At this point, the metal tape holder comes out but refuses to open... slightly "close" the portion of the camcorder that has the button to eject the tape, and then open it fully again (you'll hear a click, this signals the device that the 'hatch' is open and to eject).
10. The metal door *should* pop out and allow you to withdraw the tape.

I've tried 4 different cassettes and about 2 seconds after hitting play, I get the error every time... my solution: Not going to try to play my tapes on the camcorder anymore... will find another player to play Hi8 MP cassettes. Unknown if able to record to tape as of yet.
