Check the power adapter that you connect to the wall outlet, with a volt meter at the tip that attaches to the camera, to see if it's producing DC voltage. Verify the value of the voltage by reading the label attached to the adapter - it's usually valued around the voltage of the battery or higher. If you find that the adapter is good, then you have a more complex problem inside the camera - check to see if an indicator lights up when you plug the adapter to the camera. If it doesn't, then the power circuit is bad - not allowing a battery charge. Suggest having it repaired at a shop. Get an estimate first - sometimes the cost of repair will exceed the value of a newer camera. You've had it for three years - looks like you got your moneys worth!

I bought a dcr-sr42 handy cam three years back.. until few days back there was no issues with it suddenly i am not able switch on the handycam? how can i fix it?



This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

Hi, The driver normally comes with the XP OS. Make sure you use firewire cable and not the USB cable.
To download the videos, - Connect the cam and PC using 4 pin firewire cable. - Switch on the cam. - Open Windows Movie Maker and import the video from device.
