Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

The image turned very colorfull and grainy

I was dinning with some friends and i was recording the moment, and that time the camera was fine. I turned it off and put it into my bag that was in the floor. The camera was fine, it was between my foots, but at the moment i turned it on again (5 minutes after) the image (on lcd screen & viewfinder) was very colorfull and grainy, like if the exposure was on it maximun, and the infrared on all the time. I pushed all the buttons on the camera trying to restore the image to where it was, i even tried reseting the camera and nothing happened. The image was like red, blue, green, and grainy. I think it's a problem with the lense or something. I'll apreciatte any help from you guys, because honestly, I don't know what to do anymore. Thanks, Mibsan Espejo

I have a Pioneer PDR 609 CD recorder. I put a disc in and it says Pro disc din unlock.


This is nearly always due to cable problems. I think the cheaper optical cables can get 'kinked' quite easily, which would stop the signal coming through properly. So, first check your settings to make sure the correct cable type has been selected. If that's OK, try replacing the cable with a good quality one.

Din Unlock - Unable to record


You must have the unit switched to "DIGITAL" input - switch it to "ANALOG" and record that way. The "DIN UNLOCK" is when you have the lack of a proper digital signal, or a digital signal with copy protection, like you cannot make a digital copy of a digital Minidisc, etc...Does that make sense? Let me know if the "Analog" setting works for you. Good luck.

I dropped the Oympus voice recorder in the water.


Open all the access doors and covers, take out the batteries, memory card (if it has one), and put all parts in a ziplock bag. Get some dessicant bags (from old shoe boxes) as many as you can find, cardboard pieces, or saltine crackers and put them in the ziplock bag also and put on top of your microwave oven (if used a lot) or in the window where it gets direct sunlight. These items will help draw out all the moisture. I have done this many times on cell phones, gameboys, etc. and it works everytime.

I bought a razor from a friend who just got a blackberry, I put my sim in and it worked fine for aweek. Then a couple of days ago it just stopped everything when I turn it on and press any key it says Wait...


This is caused by a bad flex cable. More specifically the upper ear flex. It has malfunctioned (mostly due to water damage) and keeps recording memo notes (as if you are pushing the side button). This can be serviced easily. Usually $30-$45

Hi - You can download the manual from the link underlined in blue below:

The error you have is probably:

This means that you are trying to record from the Digital Input, if you want to record from an analogue input do the following:
