How to install flash light on sony camcorder SR42


You cannot use a flash with a camcorder - a flash emits a very short burst of light when triggered, whereas for continuous filming you need a constant source of light. Look at video light on eBay or Amazon.

Change language on my sony dcr-sr300


if the cam is set to a language you don't know better take note of the icons on the screen. here's how you do it:
1.press or touch home button (looks like a house icon)
2.touch settings icon (looks like a toolbox icon, its at the bottom right corner of the lcd screen)
3.go to clock/language setting page (to go there look for the up and down button on the screen, it's on the right side of the lcd. in the middle you'll see reference to the page it will show 1/2 press down to make it 2/2)
4.touch the setting that has an icon of the letter A inside a square (that's in the setting upper right portion of the screen)
5.select and touch language set (it should have the language icon, A inside a square)
6.select desired language setting
... hope you'll find this understandable and useful. thanks:)

Screen has error message and won't play tape. What is wrong?


Hi,
This message appears when the loading tape path become misaligned (mechanically unstable). Your camera just need mechanical adjustment from any expert and it will work fine again. Contact any service man for this.

Setting tha alarm


Press MODE (lower left) button until "ALARM" appears in the display. Then press SET (lower right) button. T1 should flash to indicate you are setting an alarm for Time 1. Press MODE to cycle through the alarm settings. Press ALARM (upper right) button to advance the hours, tens and minutes to the desired time. When the far right of the display is alternately flashing "T1" and then "AL" you can change the chime and alarm tones by pressing the ALARM (upper right) button. The alarm is on if the middle symbol (lines) on the left of the display is shown. The hourly chime is on if the lower symbol (bell) on the left of the display is shown. When you are done, hit MODE (lower left) again to return to normal time display.

Camera won't accept tape...


have the same problem and it is fixed! I laughed when I first read this but it does work! Take off your battery from the back of the camera, turn it over and give it a nice firm wack. Put battery back in and it WILL get rid of your error and work. I've tried the hair dryer before and it has worked but this time for me it did not.. It truly works... Hope your as happy as I was when it worked....


Good luck..
