I have this same issue with my Sony Handicap 4k and one thing that worked to get the camera to focus was to turn it off, detach the battery for a few seconds, put the battery back on, place the camera on a flat surface like a table and then try turning it on. When I tried to do all the above but turn it on in my hand where the lens could wiggle around, it didn't seem to work. But, having it stable on the table or a tripod worked a few times so far.

Choppy Playback - Sony DCR-TRV120
Mon, 28 Mar 2022 20:20:32 +0000

Not something I would have every thought would work! The camera had sat for several years and when I tried to play a tape, it was choppy. Tried this, against my better judgement I might add, and it worked!

Error Code C:31:40

I can't believe it. I just can't. It actually worked. I smacked it lightly about 20 times holding it upside down and hitting the bottom. The cassette started spinning and now it plays! Like something was stuck and now is free. Thank you!

c31:30 error code
Fri, 22 Oct 2021 00:18:08 +0000

It's 2021, I have a cranky Sony here that would close on the tape then refuse to feed it in, giving the same error ocde. It would eventually release the tape again though, so thought this is not going to work. Closed the tape door, powered it off and gave it a not very hard slap on all sides... and bloody hell it works now. Stupid, yet amazing. Thanks for this weird but useful trick.

Possum Sees My Night Vision Bullet Lens?
Tue, 19 Oct 2021 10:32:06 +0000

Possums can definitely see the IR lights and mostly dodge them. So the night vision cameras turn out to be a good deterrent to possums. To make the deterrence more effective, you need to change the camera positions from time to time to keep the possums guessing all the time.

Vivitar Mini Digital Camera User Manual
Fri, 29 Jan 2021 22:05:50 +0000

I have a mini digital camera silver with gfm on the front. The model number is TDC32 gfm s/n 20080711074
Upc #7-19283-02190-8. It takes 1 AAA battery, there is no sim card, just an on/off button and a button on top to take the picture, there's also a tiny screen next to the on/off button on the back. When I take a picture, the screen shows 001 and so on. When I turn it on the screen reads "Hi" then 000, until I take a picture. How do I get the pictures off the camera and onto my laptop? I has a charging cord and that's it. Can you please help?
