My sony handy cam shakes really bad when I zoom...It's not caused by me because it still does it even on a tripod...Is something loose?...any info on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated

Inside your camera there is mechanical movement when you zoom. There is a motor that turns a wheel is connected to a belt with teeth that goes to your lens. this moves the lens in and out. If a screw on this assembly is loose then anything of that sort can happen. You to have the lens assembly opened professionally then check if the belt and motor are still running properly and if the assembly is not loose. You can tighten the screws or if something is cracked you can use superglue to join it together. Using it like that will make the situation worse and it might stop working.

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.
