If you shot the videos in dark with night shot on. There is no way to convert them to look like day. But if you use a editing program like Sony Vegas you would be able to tweek the video to look simi normal.

Hi I have sony camcorder dcr sr42 and my vedios r deleted accidentally .after tht my frnd recorded a few .can still the deleted vedios be recovered ...please help those vedios were very important for me


It's probably permanently deleted but try plugging it into your computer and accessing the hard drive. You might see files in there that look like they are in a deleted state but not yet actually deleted because they haven't been overwritten yet. The file names might start with characters like $ or # or other characters besides numbers/letters.

Washed out video recording. Can it be darkened?


This is mostly due to over exposure or bright light striking the lens on one side, no sorry not a lot you can do as it is recorded now.

Can't turn off nightshot on my handycam help!!!


Option 1:

Using the NightShot:

1. First Set the POWER Switch to Camera, Slide NIGHTSHOT to ON.

2. The NIGHTSHOT indicators flash on the screen.

3. To cancel the NightShot mode, Slide NIGHTSHOT to OFF.


Option 2:

1. Let us try to reset the Camcorder and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

2. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder.

3. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.

NOTE: Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the solution, I would only add that it's on the top of the camera itself. Not in the digital menu or backlight button. On my older version, it's between the cassette and lens sections of the camera. 
Never having used the nightshot before, my sister left me with the same quandary...

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.
