Sony DCR-HC36 Handycam not working

Farouk, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: Handycam was purchased to replace another one I owned that started giving the error message C:31:23 "reinsert the cassette". The one I purchased from Amazon worked fine the first time I used it. On my second attempt I began getting the same error message as my previous Handycam ie C:31:23 "reinsert the cassette". I am so dissapointed. Now I have 2 non-functioning Handycams.

Doesn't work! Don't buy it! Don't waste your money!

Sally J. Reed, Amazon

  • Summary: My family likes to watch home movies on their birthdays and by the time I actually used this camcorder, it was too late to return it. It worked for about 20 minutes. Then I switched the tape and poof! Stopped working. After exhausting all options I finally gave up trying to get it to work. The next day I turned it on and it worked! Then I fast forwarded and stopped, then pressed play and it stopped working again! I spent $300 for a piece of junk!

  • Summary: I purchased this while on holiday when my other camera broke. I needed something with NIGHTSHOT in it as they do not make them any longer. I stumbled upon this which was exactly what I needed. I had it sent to my hotel and immediately began using it. In perfect condition works great! Perfect for anyone wanting NIGHT VISION.

I love it

Picopa, Amazon

  • Summary: It was cheap, it came fast, it works and it's easy to use. Someone probably just wanted to Upgrade. I'm just using it for film class, so I didn't need anything special.

Sony Handycam DCR - HC36 Camcorder

olgadennis, Ebay
16 February 2011
  • Summary: The Sony handycams are easy to use and have a good piture with outdoor lighting. Inside the shadow and color details are somewhat lost. Tape is still a good idea as one need not worry about emptying the hard drive - just store the tape for future viewing or re-use. Tape is still better quality than the DVDs that are made from it.

Not Compatible with Windows 7

J. Bethea, Amazon
23 October 2010
  • Summary: Although this camera takes great video, there are currently no software drivers to stream video to Windows 7 computers. Sony has either not created the drivers or has not released them. Either way, this camera is outdated and not functional in today's video/computing workspace. Go with a more recent camera that is supported by Windows 7.
