Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR40 Camcorder

1 Answer

When connected DCR-SR42 to TV, video and images showing in B&W

When I try to connect my handy cam to TV using AV out cable, the videos and images are showing in black and white, but in cam LCD it's playing in color only the Videos are recorded in color only when I copy them to my PC, it's working fine.

I think there is some problem with AV out, I have tried with different cable too, if it has to do with any setting please let me know.

I have a SONY DCR TRV11 trying to play movies from camera to TV. We get the audio but no video? Any suggestions


what method are you using to connect the devices? if you are using av cables - scart, or av to av, it could be a cable problem, try switching them.
only other thing is it could be that the tv is not set to av correctly, or the camcorder is not set up to feed av correctly.

Hi, i lost the driver CD supplied along with my DCR DVD 653 e handy cam. Therefore i cant connect my cam using USB cable. Please help. Regards Shijad Salim


You probably won't need any additional drivers if you're using a modern operating system. Plug in the camera's USB connector, turn it on, start up Windows Explorer or whatever navigator you use, find the new drive that will show up in a few seconds, then look around in it and drag the files you want into your video folder or desktop.

I have a sony dcr-sr42, but i don't have the original disk for communicating with my windows xp laptop. I tried downloading drivers from sony's website, but they are all upgrades and only work if i have...


Hi, The driver normally comes with the XP OS. Make sure you use firewire cable and not the USB cable.
To download the videos, - Connect the cam and PC using 4 pin firewire cable. - Switch on the cam. - Open Windows Movie Maker and import the video from device.

Connecting to computer & importing images from HD of DCR SR 42


Mine does the same thing.After it says "connecting" on the LCD of the camcorder, there is nothing to actually do on the camcorder. With the Sony SR42 software installed (supposed to come with the camcorder on purchase-but maybe you can also find it for free online), the software called Sony Picture Utility (which is part of the big packge of software) opens up automatically and offers to either burn your photos/videos to directly to a compact disc, or to import them onto the computer's harddrive.
That's how it happens for me.I'm not-tech savy or anything. Hope this helps.

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.
