    I got the exact same problem. Every recording only lasts exactly 4.22 seconds, as so does every playback.

In playback my camcorder stops and 31:11 flashes. Any ideas?

This most likely means the taps is jammed.
You can try and get the tape to eject. To do this, remove your battery from the back of the camera. Also if your camera has another small battery under the LCD (the size if a nickel) remove it too. Wait 2 minutes. Then, plug the camera in with the power cord. Try changing the camera from playback to record mode. The tape should eject at this point. If this doesn't work, try it again but this time start in record mode and change to playback after plugging it in.
I hope this helps.

Camcorder "Freezes Up" during playback and/or during creation of thumbnails

I had the same problem - you are (as I was) turning off the camera too soon after you hit the stop button after recording a scene. Wait until the word "disc access" appears (about 5 seconds after you hit the stop button. This "marks" the end of the scene. I just don't know how to edit that scene out or if it will delete it out. I know after finalizing the disc that scene will pause for a while (10 to 20 seconds even) when you watch it through the DVD player to the TV.
