Hi,
To change / reset date and time touch on lcd screen, HOME > SETTINGS > CLOCK / LANG > CLOCK SET and set the date and time.
Above said is mentioned in user manual of DCR-SR42 and you can download it from Sony Support.

How do I charge the battery for a DCR-SR42 camcorder as there does not appear to be a wall-socket cable provided.


Some camcorders have only an external battery charger. You may need to purchase an aftermarket charger for your camera or a dedicated charger from your local Sony dealer.

DCR-SR42 Camcorder does not power up


I think AC power charger of your camera got defective first and later on battery lost its charge so no power for camera now to power up.
Try to borrow same charged battery from friend. neighbors etc and test your camera.
If camera power up, it is sure that charger has gone and you need new one.
let me know in that case to guide you further.

Buying a camcorder


First, I suggest you consult a web buying guide, such as:
http://reviews.cnet.com/digital-camcorders/sony-handycam-dcr-sr42/4505-6500_7-32306183.html
The camera you mention has a built in hard drive for media storage.  The main drawbacks are image quality as the picture is highly compressed and you must export your media to your computer.  This feature is either really handy or an inconvenience - it all depends on your preference.
