I had the same problem with a brand new (and very expensive!) Sony digital camcorder. Sony told me the heads were dirty. It was brand new!!!!!

My new Sony DCR-HC24E gives C:04:00 (Use InfoLithium) and shuts down when used with a new Sony NP-FP90 battery, but not with the supplied NP-FP30 battery. It seems there is some incompatibility within the same series.

If you follow the steps as it says it step by step according to the error message that is showing at the time, it works well to fix it. THANK YOU!!! I can record my trip to my cousin's in mexico now!

the first page says c31;23 is an S reel fault. I removed the cassette and moved the white wheels inside the mechanism and it fixed it

saya mempunyai masalah dengan sony digital 8 DCR-TRV355E, masalahnya pada layar timbul code C:31:30, semua saran dari buku manual sudah saya lakukan tetapi tetap tidak ada hasil. langkah berikutnya saya bawa ke service dieler resmi, setelah di perbaiki kembali seperti semula hanya beberapa minggu (3)/ pemakaian 3 kaset non stop terulang kembali dan itu sempat saya service kembali yang ke dua dan hasilnya tetap sama cuman bertahan 2 kaset. kemudian saya coba ikut saran dari dieler sony untuk ganti motor loadding setelah diganti masalah tidak timbul cuman ambil (4 kaset) dan masalah itu timbul kembali. saya merasa di buat percobaan ..sampai sekarang saya udah bosan harus service terus dan berapa kali saya harus service?....mohon permasalahan saya ini dapat ditanggapi dieler sony dan dapat pemecahannya...

There are other manufacturers of video equipment so we do have a choice. Sony manufactures crap - this is the SECOND camera to give me the c 31:42 'finger' - and Sony lies about the problem and the fix.
The problem is apparently NOT a power glitch, and powering down (all night) and powering up again does NOT fix the problem.
The first cam did not even eject the damn tape! I include a picture of how I got the tape out of the camera for a court appearance I needed it for... oh well I threw the wreckage (literally) away so my advice is as follows
stop buying Sony crap and maybe they will stop producing crap.
Stop buying tape - digital has no moving parts and memory is lots cheaper now.
If I find the debris I will repost with a picture.
