Service manual could come in handy later maybe, if you bought it.
Per the owner’s manual, the “C” codes indicate you can service the camcorder yourself !!
Looks like you have followed the book re self-service and got no Satisfaction. Could be a bum tape, but always risky to destroy a tape in order to remove from its station.
May be time to take/ship it in. Don’t have much to add, except use this as an excuse to buy another camera (enough is never enough). Avoid middlemen and send dircectly to a Sony repair center or whoever is officially delegated to dothe warranty work.
