Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR42 Camcorder
Here is the solution to rolling view screen. First, set your camcorder in the cradle or station and it's plugged in. Secondly, press the icon that looks like a home. At the bottom of the screen select the icon that looks like the tool box (far right side). Next, you will get one screen with 4 options on the first page, and if you select the down arrow you will get to "General Set". Then select "calibration" and touch the x's when the camcorder prompts you to. It worked for me and it should for you. Don't bring your unit in for repair, just send me a best wish and we'll call it even... :) Good Luck!

I've got the same problem. It looks like the cable connecting the lcd screen and the camcorder may be damaged.
Have a look at this article:
The part that this article talks about can be found in Nexttronics or the Partstore.
HOWEVER: I don't know if the same part is used in the DCR-SR42. Can anyone else confirm this or not?
Also, it looks very difficult to replace the cable. Has anyone done this? How difficult is it?

The screen falls from top to bottom over and over again. like it is on a wheel of some sort. Thats the best description I can come up with. How can you fix this without going to sony?
