DCR PC5E Error code C 21:00
Sat, 20 Apr 2019 02:23:54 +0000

I have an ancient Sony DCR PC5 (NTSC) which I bought while overseas in 1995. It's been in storage for the last 12 years because the cassette thing wouldn't close when the video cassette was installed. Because of your advice and successes here, I whacked the thing, top, side, bang bang. Still the same problem. Then someone said whack the bottom! I gave that 3 or 4 whacks and lo and behold the thing works! If Sony incorporates this advice, sue them for copyright infringement! LOL I have other cameras now that don't need whacks, but you never know. :-)Thanks for posting!

Converting N3 Accessories to E3
Fri, 12 Apr 2019 21:58:54 +0000

I know this is a very old thread but I wanted say how helpful it was. I was able to find the Radio Shack connectors on eBay and successfully converted my TC-80N3 timer/controller to an E3 (2.5mm stereo plug) connection for my new EOS R. Works great!! Many thanks.

Anyone seen the Vivitar Mini Digital Camera?

You can use virtual box and load linux. Linux detects the camera without driver or software from the camera.

Sony don't play image on lcd screen
Mon, 04 Mar 2019 06:35:48 +0000

I have a HandyCam DCR TRV-330 and it started to display the C: 31: 22 error. I cleaned the head and it worked again. But after a few days she can not play. The numbers of minutes did not appear. She just goes back and forth. Play works, but no picture appears on the display and on the LCD screen.

Disabling the Laptop WebCam
Mon, 11 Feb 2019 20:42:22 +0000

I have a friend, who is so afraid someone would hack her Macintosh camera that she places a sticker over it. I have thought that is a really simple and effective idea.

Other ways I can think of is to uninstall camera drivers, which I believe is fairly easy on a Windows computer. Not sure about Mac's though.

Error Code C:31:40
Sat, 26 Jan 2019 14:58:48 +0000

Eric wrote years before:"Hi had the same problem with a Sony Hi8 from 1998 (c:31:40). The camera was useless.
Ar several forums I found out how to solve it. Hit your camera several times with a flat hand (bottom, tape side). Its strange but my problem was solved. On internet I found maybe 10 or 15 other people who did the same. For all of them this worked fine!"
My old SONY DCR TRV330 had the same problem when I decided to activate it after years. I took out the tape and closed it and smacked the bottom 15 times. It WORKS AGAIN!!!
Thanks a lot!
