John Han: Below is from a YouTube user "PLCI" who successfully fixed it.
Finally got it to work. Problem is that I couldn't find the gear. Remove
three small screws (1 at top and 1 on each side) of the 'DO NOT PRESS DOWN'
metal think to take it off. Then I got a good look inside (with better
lighting as well) applied good pressure on the gear and Bam! it worked.
Ribana Miguel: C:32:10 .I am spanish.
gearnoggin: THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH!!! Got my $3 yard sale HC52 working again!
Stonewall Towery: Man, you are an amazing guy. After searching the forums all over and
getting instructions that included banging on the dang thing. I was ready
to give up on it. But your instructions were perfect as my recorder is now
working properly again. Thanks so much!
Rob Goossens: Thanx man, you saved me too. Just pushing the little black wheel a bit. Can
hardly believe it, but it did the trick right away.
Prothom Shurjo: can u give me full video??
HamRadioNow: Worked for me, too! Thanks! Do use a Phillips screwdriver, and press kind
of hard in the little hole in the gear, just as shown in the video. I
didn't really feel much "give" or change in the gear, and I had to try it a
few times until I was successful. This camera now becomes "video" only, no
more tape. This was on a Sony HDR-HC9 camera.
John Han: Please let me know the model # & symptom such as error code.
TheJimbojetset1: you are brilliant worked for me on a Samsung thanks pal
Romel Carbonell: Hello again John Han. I hope all is well with you. Another problem occurred
with my hdr-hc7. This time, the cartridge will not open.
Do you have any recommendations to fix this? Thank you in advance.

David Frost: Hi John, I have a Sony Digital Video Camera Recorder model DCR-HC48E.
Haven't used the camera for a year or so. I powered up the battery and the
tape which was already in the camera played okay. I then removed the tape
and when trying to install a new tape the error C:32:11 appeared. I
followed you advise, but find the tape works once but not there after. Can
you advise. Many thanks
Ing.Pablo Gutierrez: Thank you !!! I could fix it!! Crack!

Rudy Stain: Thanx soooo much John. I have a Sony HDR-HC5... 1st I Mickey Moused the
'pinch roller' with 3 mil. of ball point pen tube then I pressed around
that gear and it worked... So then I put a tape in and it shut off. I
tried reset and plugging in the power supply and it's still dead. Uhg,,,
From happy to sad, Just like that, hahaha. I didn't read anyone else
having this prob yet. Any ideas, Thanx again 'Camera Hero'
Quachiez: You know how you push the mode gear down, do you push the hole that is in
the mode gear?or just the whole thing?
Berkner80: It's worth the risk. Otherwise I just have a paper weight. Too expensive to
fix being you can get a new HD camcorder for less than $300.
Vicki Wilson: I have just bought a sony handycam off ebay and on the screen there is a
yellow flashing icon,I cannot view my tapes...
Pat Russell: John man.. thx so much.. it was broken for like 2 years.. got to see my
childhood again.. and old dog who died.. that meant alot to me.. all bcuz

insert the cassette .. turn the camera off and hit the reset button by the
speaker by screen.. turn on it should work without code again.. if not..

flossiecom: I used this info on a Sony DCR-HC51E that had the C:32:11 error. I done as
instructed and it didnt work for the first 3 times. On the 4th try i

mention that also...
Many thanks for this video :)
