Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I read this while mine was displaying that error code and so I gave it a couple of hard wacks on the lens while it was on. Turned it off and was gonna open her up but then just turned it on and it worked with the error code gone!

That problem is on the lens assembly...one the two motor is not working properly...sometimes it is a poor connection to the socket of the main board...other is photo sensor of the lens(not the ccd image sensor)or the driver ic of the 2 motor...i suggest you have to go the service center for repairing you camera cause it need to disassemble the camera for doing this....

Sadly it happend to my camera just after the warranty expired. Surely Sony knows it is a common problem. The local camera shop told me it would be cheaper to buy a new one which is very disappointing when it's only 13 months old!
