    The microphone seems to be too sensitive. After uploading videos to my computer or connecting the camera to my tv the audio makes strange noises as if the sounds were overloading the mic

First, I suggest you consult a web buying guide, such as:

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.

Sony handy cam dcr sr42 error code E:61:10 please explain


According to Sony this means "Take the camera in for service."

What it usually actually means is that the lens is stuck. Your question doesn't include that information, though.

If the lens is stuck (and you're out of warranty), the best known solution is to smack the camera while it is off. It's a bit scary, but there are many testimonials to it working. I recommend reading a bit at that link.

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.

Lcd screen


Here is the solution to rolling view screen. First, set your camcorder in the cradle or station and it's plugged in. Secondly, press the icon that looks like a home. At the bottom of the screen select the icon that looks like the tool box (far right side). Next, you will get one screen with 4 options on the first page, and if you select the down arrow you will get to "General Set". Then select "calibration" and touch the x's when the camcorder prompts you to. It worked for me and it should for you. Don't bring your unit in for repair, just send me a best wish and we'll call it even... :) Good Luck!
