your lens mechanism is stuck up! try pulling the lens with slight force, if you are lucky the culprit that is blocking the mechanism will get loose. If you are not lucky theres no way you can remove or fix the problem than sending it to the authorized service center. =-(

SOURCE: Minolta DiMage G500: objective does not retract

if it has a power but not responding, there's a problem on the mechanical that makes the lenses move forward. try to service it.

I need to READ the battery charger instructions for a Minolta Dimage G500?


I suggest you charge the battery overnight and in the morning if the LED does not change color then the Red LED on the charger only indicates that there is mains power to the charge adapter.

Error code S0042, DIMAGE G600


The S0042 error code relates to a problem with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended)
Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. Let me know if it worked!

I want to know how can I set the self timer on for my minolta G500


Repeatedly press left/right on the selector to bring up the self-timer mode (one-handed clock). Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button.

Refer to pages 38-43 of the manual for further details. If you need the manual, you can download it at

Sustem Error S0042


Todd, What you can do is to powerit on and try to pull the lens out manually. Do not use too much strength or rotate. But try it a few times and the lens casing may stop touching the camera body. Once the lens comes out fully then the camera will boot up and work.

Yeah kind of talking to yourself, but I'm listening. It very well could be the internal battery. The bad thing is it's in a location that you shouldn't attempt yourself. Find somebody in your area that sevices these and take it to them. I'm sorry this wasn't an easy fix.

Error code S0042, DIMAGE G600


I had this problem with my 600. I noticed that the end, center, part of the focusing mechanism was slightly out of alignment. (The part that usually sticks out furthest.) Once I straightened that piece, it was able to retract and the camera could be closed. Look at the focusing mechanism from all sides to make sure it is straight. The part was very slightly off, but enough to cause the error. My camera has been working fine since.
