Some camcorders have only an external battery charger. You may need to purchase an aftermarket charger for your camera or a dedicated charger from your local Sony dealer.

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.

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.

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.

Camcoder not starting up


Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
