Hi,
Error C:31:23 is related to mechanically misalignment of the tape loading path, and it removes when mechanical adjustment performs, a sensor in mechanical section detects mechanical problem and generates the error. This error removes automatically when the problem solve. For mechanical adjustment contact any expert nearby to perform the adjustment.Which is bit technical and can only perform by an expert.
Thanks for using fixya.

My Sony TRV30 MiniDV camcorder always gives me an error when I insert a tape. It won't playback nor will it record, it just says to eject the tape, like it did not load correctly. I try repeatedly, but it...

This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired 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.

This small back-up battery on my Sony is under the main big power battery, it is like a large screw under the main power pack, I just turn that screw and the little round lid comes off to get to the little silver flat back-up one.
They are readily available from most good camera shops like Jesops for around £12 to £15 each.

Video recording shuts down after 15 seconds

I just looked at my Sony DCR-TRV30. Not the same, but perhaps similar. My camera records lengthy videos on tape and only brief videos on memory stick. I suggest that you stick to tape for video.
Good Luck

Sony DCR-TRV30 Error Code 31:23

First, you have to disassemble the camcorder to get to the mechanism. Then once you get the mechanism separated from the rest of the unit, the cassette basket or tape loading mech has to be removed. Once you remove that, there is a dress panel with the tape sense LED attached that will have to be reomoved. Behind the dress panel is a swing gear that drives the reels. The swing gear depends on friction from a clutch behind the gear (but it's part of the gear). the reason it stops working is that the clutch wears out so the gear won't swing and engage the reels (Sony calls it a "gooseneck gear" p/n X-3950-364-1) Replace the gooseneck gear and that SHOULD take care of your problem. Also check to make sure the reelshaven't been bent, this sometimes happens if you "misload" a tape. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Reinsert cassette

Turn the unit off and hit the back of the camera twice near the battery compartment with the palm of your hand. Sounds crazy but it worked with my camcorder Sony DCR-TRV480. Problem started when I used 8MM Head Cleaner. I think the roller got stuck inside camcorder. The trouble code came up C:31:22. Hope this helps.
