    I am having the same problem, but I don't know what a "codec" is.  Too, I have "connecting" on the LCD and it goes nowhere...I left it alone like that all day and it still says "connecting"

DCR-SR42_Nightshot


If you shot the videos in dark with night shot on. There is no way to convert them to look like day. But if you use a editing program like Sony Vegas you would be able to tweek the video to look simi normal.

Hard drive is full


The memory stick can only be used for taking still pictures (which are of terrible quality). Your only option for creating space on your hard drive is to delete items. Before that you can upload videos to your computer and/or burn them on DVDs. Sony actuallly has a DVD burner called DVDirect where you can burn DVDs without the use of a computer. I hope this helps.

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.
